At the break it was Marseille and Sporting Lisbon that were on the verge of going through. Marseille had a 1-0 lead over Tottenham at half time and they were the home team. This was a mountain for Tottenham to climb and what was worse? Sporting Lisbon was also leading Eintracht Frankfurt by the same score-line and Sporting Lisbon were at home. Tottenham found themselves sliding to third place with the lowly Europa League staring them in the face!

Even though Tottenham did equalise early in the second half, they remained just one goal away from crashing out of the competition and Marseille seemed determined to get that goal. Interestingly though, it was Tottenham that scored the goal in the very last seconds of the match through Pierre Hojbjerg (all thanks to the dependable Harry Kane for the assist!) As if both matches were playing out the same script, Eintracht Frankfurt also got a late winner in far away Portugal.

It will definitely be an unforgettable night for all four teams. Antonio Conte was besides himself with joy at the last long blast of the centre referee’s whistle.
