OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS 1 vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1

MIDFIELDER Mousa Dembele set up a mouthwatering Europa League last 16 tie with Inter Milan, after a 90th-minute goal saw Tottenham progress in France.

Spurs held a 2-1 advantage from last week’s first leg, but Maxime Gonalons headed in before half-time to give Lyon the lead on the night and on away goals overall.

Midfielder Lewis Holtby and striker Emmanuel Adebayor both hit the woodwork as Spurs pressed for an equaliser.

But Dembele got the crucial goal – his second for the club – just as Spurs appeared to be heading out of the competition, firing in low from 25 yards.
