The North London club have defied all expectations to book their place in the summit clash including a stirring late comeback against Ajax in the semi-final. Ahead of their final showdown with Liverpool, we look back at Tottenham’s road to Madrid.
QUARTERFINALS - LEG 1
Tottenham 1-0 Manchester City
A second-half strike from Son Heung-min (78') gave Tottenham a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
Sergio Aguero missed a first-half penalty and Harry Kane was forced off injured before Son's strike settled the first European match at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
QUARTERFINALS - LEG 2
Manchester City 4-3 (4-4 agg.) Tottenham
Raheem Sterling was denied by VAR in injury time as Manchester City's quadruple hopes came to an end in the most dramatic of circumstances against Tottenham in a classic Champions League quarter-final tie.
The England international thought he had a hat-trick at the death at the Etihad Stadium, but a review showed Sergio Aguero was offside in the build-up as Tottenham progressed via the away goal rule despite losing 4-3 on the night.
Spurs had already been assisted by VAR when Fernando Llorente (73') bundled in from close range 17 minutes from time, which made it 4-4 on aggregate and ultimately booked a semi-final date with Ajax.
A chaotic first half had City 3-2 up at the break. Son Heung-min's (7', 10') brace cancelled out the opener from Sterling (4' 21'), but the forward restored City's lead after Bernardo Silva's (21') fortunate equaliser.
Aguero's (59') brilliant strike then seemingly put City into the semis before VAR deemed Llorente's apparent handball to be accidental and Pep Guardiola's men saw wild celebrations for Sterling's last-gasp effort curtailed in sensational fashion.
