A year ago today, Tottenham Hotspur battled back from the jaws of elimination to book their place in the final of the Champions League for the first time in their illustrious history.

Lucas Moura scored a second-half hat-trick to secure a 3-2 win in Amsterdam and send Tottenham through on away goals to the final in Madrid where they would face Liverpool.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Spurs looked out of the tie at half-time after a powerfu header from Matthijs de Ligt and a curling effort from Hakim Ziyech.

The Brazilian netted twice inside four minutes to level the scores early in the second half, first slotting home a swift ounter-attack before edging past two defenders in the box to bury the equaliser

He completed his stunning treble when he scored the dramatic winner deep into stoppage time to seal a remarkable night in Amsterdam.

Moura has reflected on his performance in an interview with the official Spurs website.
