The Champions League calendar has become a rather new permanent fixture on the schedule for Tottenham Hotspur in recent years, as the north London outfit continue to improve their status within the European game. Although they might not have a history in the tournament, the 62,214 capacity New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium becomes a truly incredible venue to be at on matchday in midweek, as passionate fans get behind their side and urge them on to go as far as possible.
Spurs, as they are known around the world, have been able to call upon a number of global stars in previous tournaments, which has helped to boost their profile as a club that needs to be taken seriously, despite having had limited time within Europe’s elite club competition. Men such as Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura have all starred in fixtures to have happened in the past, whilst men like Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho have looked to guide them as far as they possibly can.
Tottenham’s history in the tournament is incredibly limited as they continue to re-establish themselves as a top side within the domestic game, as well as making waves in continental football.
However, despite their relative inexperience in the competition, Spurs did manage to reach the 2018/19 final in Madrid. Nonetheless, Liverpool managed to edge them in that game, leaving Pochettino’s side having to settle with second place.
That achievement is going to be one of the most memorable for the club’s fanbase within the Champions League, as the whole season provided a number of spectacular moments that helped get them to that stage.
Reaching the final in Madrid looked impossible at moments, as they had a group with FC Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven. Spurs looked to be going out at that stage, however a draw against the Spaniards at the Camp Nou.
The Lilywhites, as they are also known, managed to oust Borussia Dortmund with ease, whilst they edged past Manchester City by virtue of away goals and perhaps some fortune before their iconic clash with Ajax.
Having lost the first-leg 1-0, Spurs looked to be going out of the tournament until Lucas Moura recorded a second-half hat-trick (including a third in the 96th minute) to get them past the Dutch giants and into the Champions League final with Liverpool.
