Tottenham secured a remarkable qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League as Lucas Moura’s 85th-minute equaliser earned a priceless point against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs, with one point from their first three games but coming off two straight wins in Group B, needed to match or better Inter Milan’s result at home to PSV Eindhoven and had faced elimination when Inter’s Mauro Icardi cancelled out PSV’s opener.

Moura’s goal swung the advantage back in Spurs’ favour but an agonising wait followed before it was confirmed Inter had failed to find a winner against the group’s bottom side.

Tottenham had gone behind to Ousmane Dembele’s early strike but then peppered Barcelona’s defence with wave after wave of attacks, with both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min going close.

They finally made the decisive breakthrough five minutes from the end when substitute Moura, who moments earlier had a header cleared off the line, fired in.

Spurs become only the eighth side to qualify from the group stage after claiming only one point from their first three games. (BBC)
