Tottenham Hotspur have done the unthinkable. Just when you thought the Champions League couldn’t get any more outrageous.

Less than 24 hours after Liverpool staged one of the greatest-ever fightbacks at Anfield, Lucas Moura scored a second-half hat-trick to secure a 3-2 win in Amsterdam and send Tottenham through on away goals to the final in Madrid on June 1.

They progress to the final on away goals via a 3-3 aggregate scoreline over Ajax in extraordinary scenes.

With virtually the last kick of the game, Spurs completed one an impossible three-goal comeback to end Ajax’s fairytale on their own turf, via a magnificent Lucas Moura hat-trick.

Tottenham will face Liverpool in an all-English Champions League final after producing a stunning second-half comeback against Ajax to rival the Reds' miracle win over Barcelona.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Spurs looked out of it at half-time after a towering header from Matthijs de Ligt and a curling finish from Hakim Ziyech.

But Lucas stuck twice inside four minutes to level the scores early in the second half, first slotting home a brisk counter-attack before wriggling past two defenders in the box to smash in the equaliser.

And the Brazilian completed his remarkable hat-trick when he scored the dramatic winner deep into stoppage time to seal another historic night in this competition, and leave Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino in tears.
