Tottenham vs. Ajax score: Lucas Moura Champions League hat-trick completes stunning comeback for Spurs

Tottenham will now play Liverpool in the final on June 1 in Madrid. Ajax started off hot and it looked the Dutch side would cruise to the final. Matthijs de Ligt and Hahim Ziyech scored in the first half to take a 2-0 lead and put the pressure on Spurs, who were already without injured star striker Harry Kane. However, after the break, Lucas scored two quick goals to get his team back into it. First, in the 55th minute, he finished this strike inside the box. Just minutes later, he somehow put this one away after dancing around in the box. In stoppage time, Spurs went forward in need of the third goal. Jan Vertonghen of Tottenham hit the crossbar and Hakim Ziyechof Ajax hit the post, and then it was bedlam. In panic mode, Fernando Llorente used his big frame to play Dele Alli, and the midfielder slipped a little ball through to Lucas who pulled off the miraculous goal to help his team advance to the final.
