Barcelona 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Lucas Moura goal sends Spurs through

Kyle Walker-Peters

Lucas Moura’s 85th-minute equaliser against Barcelona saw Tottenham achieve a remarkable qualification for the Champions League last 16.

Spurs, with one point from their first three games, needed to match or better Inter Milan’s result at home to PSV Eindhoven and were set for elimination after Mauro Icardi had levelled for the Italian club in the 73rd minute.

There was an agonising wait for Spurs before it was announced that Inter had failed to find a winner against Group B’s bottom side.

Tottenham had gone behind to Ousmane Dembele’s early strike but then peppered Barcelona’s defence with wave after wave of attacks, with both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min going close.

They finally made the decisive breakthrough five minutes from the end when substitute Moura, who moments earlier had a header cleared off the line, fired in.

Spurs become only the eighth side to qualify from the group stage after claiming only one point from their first three games.
