Tottenham Hotspur pulled off one of the greatest turn arounds of recent years in the Champions League last night.
Spurs found themselves with only a point after their first three games in the competition this season, despite being ahead late on against both Inter Milan and PSV.
They would therefore likely need to win all three of their last games to sneak a spot in the knockout phase of the competition.
Spurs earned wins against both PSV and Inter Milan, making it two out of three, and meaning that any matching of the Italian’s score in the final game would equal qualification.
As Inter were playing bottom of the group PSV, this almost definitely need to be a win, but that wasn’t the case in the end.
The Italians found themselves one nil down early on in their final game of the group, and could only recover to a draw.
Spurs managed the exact same away to Barca at the Nou Camp, and therefore edged into second place thanks to their head to head record against Inter.
Tottenham had been embarrassed a few weeks back when focus turned to their advertising campaign for the new stadium.
The posters claimed that the new stadium was the only place to watch Champions League football in London.
The club were then mocked as it looked as if they wouldn’t even still be in the competition by the time their new ground was ready.
However, with the Champions League starting up again in February/March, and the new stadium aiming for a February completion date (The Sun), they could finally prove these posters correct.
