DRAMA at the Johan Cruyff Arena where a late, late winner for Lucas Moura has broken the Ajax hearts and taken Spurs into their first champions league final. Moura’s incredible second-half hat-trick saw Spurs snatch a 3-2 win at Ajax and a place in the Champions League final with ,a 3-3 on aggregate, on away goals.
Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech struck twice in the first half which seemed to have finished Spurs, outclassed and out-thought. However, in the second half Lucas Moura with quick two lightning goals in two second half minutes put them in the lead before striking a fatal blow in the dying seconds to set up an all English final with the Reds. Both teams had missed chances where Hakim Ziyech hit the post and Jan Vertonghen struck the crossbar.
Ajax was playing the second leg of the tie with the lead and at home for the first time this season, having not won here at home in a Champions League knockout game since 1996.
Spurs will face their fellow comeback kings Liverpool in the Champions League final at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain, on Saturday 1st June. This will be the first time all English final since 2008 when Chelsea played Manchester United in Moscow, Russia
