Tottenham sets up semi-final clash with Ajax, sends Man City packing

Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night set up a Champions League semi-final clash with Ajax Amsterdam after edging out fellow English Premier League team, Manchester City.

The match, which ended 4-3 on away goals, ended Manchester City’s bid for three trophies for the current season.

The Pep Goudiola’s side came into the match with a deficit 1-0 loss to Tottenham in the first leg.

The first 11 minutes saw four goals being scored. Two from Son Heung-Min for Tottenham and one each from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva for Manchester City.

Sterling and Sergio Aguero again scored one goal each to put City ahead until Fernando Llorente’s controversial goal 17 minutes from time was allowed to stand despite a VAR check for handball by the Spaniard.

City were however not lucky, as the VAR ruled Aguero off side to deny Sterling what would have been a hat-trick.
