UEFA Champions League finals Tottenham vs Liverpool

UEFA Champions League finals Tottenham vs Liverpool
Tottenham and Liverpool left football fans gasping in disbelief this week as they both defied the odds to set up an all-English Champions League final.
The Reds fought back from a 3-0 first-leg deficit to defeat tournament favourites Barcelona on an incredible night of drama at Anfield.
And a day later, Lucas Moura completed his hat-trick in the sixth minute of stoppage time as Spurs fought from 2-0 down on the night and 3-0 on aggregate to overcome Ajax on their own patch.
Indeed some of the biggest moments in Champions League history involve teams fighting back from several goals down to defy the odds.
No wonder Mauricio Pochettino was left in tears at the end of the match. The Argentine manager had just masterminded arguably his side's greatest performance during his tenure - and that coming after the remarkable quarter-final success over Manchester City.
The London club were 1-0 down after the first leg which became 3-0 on aggregate after 35 minutes inside the Amsterdam Arena. Ajax fans were singing as their side, who had seen off Real Madrid and Juventus, looked set to take up the other spot in the final at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano.
But then the game took on a different complexion in four remarkable minutes shortly after the restart, courtesy of Moura's double.
Spurs continued to search for that all-important third but it looked like it was never coming with keeper Andre Onana keeping the visiting attack at bay. But with time running out, the man of the night used all his remaining energy to send a low shot past the reach of the Cameroon international.
Like Liverpool's Divock Origi on Tuesday, Brazilian Moura is now part of Champions League folklore.
