Europa League, after their 1-1 draw against Lyon.

Spurs advanced 3-2 on aggregate against the Ligue 1 giants, with Mousa Dembele netting the all-important goal with just minutes left to play.

The Londoners had fallen behind on the night to a Maxime Gonalons effort, which would have knocked them out on away goals.

However, Dembele slammed home the equaliser, and give Tottenham the victory in the tie.

After the game Villa-Boas said that he felt his team got the result they deserved across both legs:

“The second half was all about our football, and I think we deserved to go through,” He told ITV Sport.

The Portuguese coach went on to praise Dembele for his decisive effort:

“It was a great finish by Mousa. Sometimes we joke with him that he should shoot more.”

Tottenham will meet Inter Milan in the next round of the competition, with the Italians beating Cluj 5-0 on aggregate.

AVB is happy with the draw, and believes that the clash wouldn’t look out of place in the Champions League:

“Excellent. I think it doesn’t get any better than that. Two Europa League ties, but they’ll be like Champions League ties.”
