At the first half, Ajax Amsterdam has performed much better than Tottenham. Matthijs de Light has scored a goal at 5 minutes and Hakim Ziyech at 35 minutes. But everything has changed in the second half. Tottenham started to be more offensive with four strikers. Fernando Llorente has substituted Victor Wanyama and Lucas Moura has been shifted deeper. Llorente has performed below expectations. But Moura was amazing in the second half. He scored two goals. One in minute 55 and a second 4 minutes later. It was a hope. Spurs had to score one goal and they were not able to do this. Even though they had many good opportunities. And then the Moura has scored a beautiful goal in the added time.
Some time ago in a press conference, Pochettino said: “Winning the Champions League? It should be fantastic, no? Close the five-year chapter and go home.” Jose Mourinho was asked for an opinion about it. He responded on beIN SPORTS: “I would tell him not to do it.”
This is the first time when Tottenham will play in final of UEFA Champions League.
The second team is Liverpool FC. They won UEFA Champions League 5 times.
The previous English final had a place in 2008 when Manchester United has beaten Chelsea on penalties.
The final is planned for 1 June 2019 on Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.
