The past two days have been memorable in the football world with two Premier League clubs staging comeback wins to advance to the Uefa Champions League final in Madrid.
After watching Liverpool thrash Barcelona 4-0 on Tuesday, Tottenham Hotspur followed in the Reds' footsteps and overturned a 1-0 home loss last Tuesday with a spirited second-half performance which saw them advance to their first ever Champions League final on away goals.
Ajax dominated proceedings in the first half as Matthijs de Ligt's header and Hakim Ziyech's effort gave them a two-goal lead before the interval.
After the restart, Lucas Moura scored a double within four minutes and later bagged his hat-trick at the death of the encounter to send Mauricio Pochettino's side into ecstasy.
The result, the performance and the drama in the elite European tournament this week has left fans with one conclusion.

Fresh trim, Liverpool ain't ready for this. Lucas Moura under Pochettino should be illegal pic.twitter.com/OETC96gcK6— Slewkey (@LukeAtYourHead) May 8, 2019
Football is so unpredictable— Ademola (@IamDemola_) May 8, 2019
My poor heart can't watch football anymore. Spurs qualify for the final of the Champions League after a 3 goal deficit. I'm done. No more football for me, I'm reverting to snooker championship. #AJATOT— Frank Edoho (@frankedoho) May 8, 2019
A Barcelona x Ajax final became a Liverpool x Tottenham final. Whatever you are going through, you are not down and out. Please, never give up! Never ever giving up after what I have seen the last 24 hours.— JJ. Omojuwa (@Omojuwa) May 8, 2019
