Greatest Games: Ajax 2 Tottenham Hotspur 3, 2019

Nov 03, 2020, 02:00 AM

This week, Jonathan Wilson and Marcus Speller are joined by Nihal Arthanayake to discuss Spurs’ dramatic 2019 Champions League semi-final second-leg in Amsterdam against Ajax.

There was disappointment at the recently opened new home of Tottenham Hotspur in the first-leg and after de Ligt and Ziyech increased Ajax’s aggregate lead to three, a depleted Spurs looked vastly on the verge of crashing out of the Champions League whilst Ajax fans bellowed Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds at half-time. But Lucas Moura and a load of cojones ensured an emotional second-half and a remarkable comeback.
