  • Maxime Gonalons 17'

1 - 1


2nd leg: 2 - 3 (Agg)

Tottenham Hotspur

  • Mousa Dembélé 90'


    Tottenham will meet Inter Milan in the next round after they saw off Cluj tonight.


    Dembele with a last-minute strike to take his side through and you have to say they deserved it. Lyon defended brilliantly but it was Tottenham who ultimately played the best football on the night.

  • 93'

    And there goes the full-time whistle. It is Spurs who progress into the next round.

  • 92'

    Reveillere picks out Briand but the Lyon striker is offside once again.

  • 91'

    A goal for Lyon now and it will take this tie into extra time.

  • 90'

    Three minutes of injury time to be played...

  • 90'

    Dembele picks up the ball on the edge of the box and skips past a man before firing at goal and picking out the bottom corner. Vercoutre no chance, great goal.

  • 90'


  • 89'

    Gallas sends a ball forward into the box but it is poor and Vercoutre is able to come off his line and claim it with ease.

  • 89'

    Time is really starting to tick for Tottenham now...

  • 88'

    Bale has a go at goal from outside the box but he pulls it well wide. Dempsey, though, was close to getting on the end of it.

  • 87'

    Another offside for Lyon. That is seven in total today.

  • 86'

    Tottenham passing it around until Sigurdsson gives the ball away. Lyon are defending very well.

  • 85'

    Spurs take off Parker and bring on Livermore. Last throw of the dice from AVB.

  • 84'

    It was a last-minute Bale winner that was the difference between the two sides in the first leg. Will we see something similar tonight?

  • 84'

    Remember, one goal for Tottenham and they will be going through.

  • 83'

    Tottenham are finding no joy against Lyon's ten men behind the ball.

  • 82'

    Lyon bring on Briand for Gomis who has put in a real shift tonight.

  • 81'

    Dempsey has a go at goal from about 35 yards out but it was never hitting the target. What a waste.

  • 81'

    Lyon's defence holding strong for the moment...

  • 79'

    Grenier sends a corner into the box for Lyon but Bale does well to head away the danger.

  • 78'

    Some good work from Adebayor down the left. He drags it back to Dempsey but the American can only send his effort wide. Poor.

  • 77'

    Dempsey rises to get his head on Bale's corner but he is unable to keep it down. Should have hit the target.

  • 76'

    Gonalons heads Bale's delivery out for another corner.

  • 76'

    Bale sends the free-kick into the box but Lyon head clear for the corner.

  • 76'

    Umtiti gets booked for delaying Spurs from taking the free-kick.

  • 76'

    Spurs win a free-kick after a hand ball from Lovren.

  • 75'

    Lyon to win, with bet365  
    Tottenham Hotspur to win, with bet365  

  • 75'

    Is Sigurdsson the man to find that elusive and vital goal for Tottenham?

  • 74'

    Spurs also make a change as Holtby comes off for Sigurdsson. The German has faded as the game has gone on.

  • 73'

    Lyon bring on Ghezzal for Lisandro.

  • 72'

    Spurs seeing all the possession at the moment. The urgency they had a few minutes ago has dropped a little though.

  • 71'

    Assou-Ekotto wastes possession with a poor long ball forward. That is just eating into Lyon's hands.

  • 68'

    Back to when Lacazette took a tumble in the box, it appears the ref got the right decision as the Lyon player seemed to dive over the foot of Friedel.

  • 68'

    Spurs are really having a go now and an equaliser surely does not seem too far away. Lyon, on the other hand, are struggling.

  • 67'

    Bale has a pop from distance but Vercoutre makes another decent save to deny the Spurs man. The keeper looked a little uneasy with that stop.

  • 66'

    Spurs make a change too as Dempsey comes on for Lennon who has had a quiet game.

  • 66'

    Former Spurs player Malbranque comes on for Lacazette.

  • 65'

    Spurs still on the attack and Adebayor somehow hits the bar with an overhead kick from the tightest of angles.

  • 64'

    Bale steps up to take the free-kick and brings out a top save from Vercoutre.

  • 63'

    Gonalons goes into the book for conceding a free-kick.

  • 62'

    Lisandro with a lovely ball over the top to Gomis. Friedel comes out of his goal and clears the ball but only as far as Lacazette who bursts into the area before taking a tumble. No penalty given.

  • 61'

    Tottenham work it around well before Adebayor's touch lets him down and the attack comes to an end.

  • 60'

    Lyon to win, with bet365  
    Tottenham Hotspur to win, with bet365  

  • 60'

    Both teams actually seem to have upped their level which is making for a far better second half.

  • 59'

    Grenier with a lovely flick to pick out Lisandro who is then brought down by Walker for the free-kick. The Lyon player went down far too easily there.

  • 58'

    Bale again with the delivery but Vercoutre does well to punch clear.

  • 58'

    Bale sends the corner in but Gomis heads it out for another one.

  • 57'

    Walker does well to win a corner for Tottenham. What can they create from this?

  • 57'

    Umtiti clears the ball down the field and picks out Gomis but Vertonghen does well to get there first and pass it back to Friedel.

  • 56'

    The game is getting very stretched now...

  • 55'

    A nice spell of possession for Lyon as they see a number of crosses cleared by Spurs. Grenier picks up the ball on the edge of the box and bursts forward before bringing out a top save out of Friedel.

  • 54'

    Grenier with a lovely ball to Lisandro but the forward is offside. Tight call that was.

  • 53'

    Lyon still have plenty of men behind the ball when Spurs are attacking. The away side look like having a bit more luck in trying to break them down in this half though.

  • 52'

    Assou-Ekotto sends a delivery in from the left looking for Adebayor but Vercoutre does well to claim the ball before the striker can get his head to it.

  • 51'

    That was Spurs' best move of the game. They can take heart from that and push on.

  • 50'

    Tottenham counter right down the other end and Adebayor picks out Bale with a lovely ball. The Welshman takes it first time on the volley but his effort bounces just inches wide of the post. So unlucky.

  • 49'

    Reveillere bursts forward down the right and finds Lisandro but his shot from the edge of the box is blocked.

  • 49'

    Spurs still looking far too sloppy in possession. They will need to improve in this department if they want to get a result tonight.

  • 48'

    Assou-Ekotto drives down the right but the ball eventually rolls out for the goal kick after some good defending from Reveillere.

  • 47'

    Lyon knocking it around very nicely, much to the delight of the home crowd.

  • 46'

    The winner of this tie will most probably take on Inter Milan, with the Italian side almost as good as through against Cluj.

  • 46'

    Tottenham get this second half underway...


    Maxime Gonalons celebrates after opening the scoring.


    Do you think Spurs can mount a comeback? I'd love to hear from you. Let me know on Twitter @Tom_Sweetman.


    Lyon are deservedly on top thanks to Gonalon's header. Spurs have not been at the races tonight and need a vast improvement if they want to book their place in the next round of the competition.

  • 45'

    There goes the half-time whistle.

  • 45'

    Holtby has a go from distance but Vercoutre does well to get down low and tip it onto the post before the Lyon defence scramble it clear.

  • 43'

    Tottenham fail to deal with Umtiti's delivery and Lacazette arrives in the box unmarked, however, Friedel is there to make a comfortable save to stop the winger's volley.

  • 41'

    Bale does brilliantly to outpace Lovren before winning the ball back off him, but Fofana is there to bring a halt to the winger's attack.

  • 40'

    Spurs are allowing Lyon far too much room to play in at times. Lucky for them their opponents' final ball hasn't always been up to it.

  • 39'

    Grenier finds the run of Gomis with a good pass but the striker is offside. He still proceeds to shoot over the bar however.

  • 37'

    Holtby with a superb ball to pick out Adebayor. The striker holds it up before trying to pick out the run of the German but his pass is poor and the move comes to and end.

  • 36'

    Bale sends a Spurs free-kick into the box but the referee blows the whistle. Looks like a foul on a Lyon defender from Gallas.

  • 35'

    Lyon are defending very well. The away side are having a lot of trouble trying to break them down.

  • 34'

    Parker almost picks out the run of Bale but he just puts a little too much on it. Spurs' final ball has been letting them down tonight.

  • 34'

    Bale sends a ball into the box from the right but Bisevac is there to clear the danger once again.

  • 34'

    Lyon have had five attempts at goal to Tottenham's one.

  • 33'

    Lovely move from Lyon as Lacazette picks out Lisandro in the middle of the box but the attacker can only send his first-time effort wide of the post. Unlucky.

  • 32'

    When Spurs do have the ball Lyon are putting nine men behind the ball.

  • 31'

    Bale does his best to beat Reveillere but Bisevac is there to cover his team-mate and clear the ball to safety.

  • 30'

    Lyon to win, with bet365  
    Tottenham Hotspur to win, with bet365  

  • 30'

    Grenier picks out Fofana in space who then plays the first-time ball to Gomis but he overhits it. The Lyon midfielder could and should have taken it on on his own there.

  • 29'

    Spurs really need to stop giving away free-kicks and corners as Grenier's delivery is very dangerous.

  • 29'

    Spurs this time clear the corner up the other end of the pitch.

  • 29'

    Grenier sends in the corner this time but Gallas is there to head clear for another corner.

  • 28'

    Grenier delivers the set-piece but Spurs head it clear for the corner.

  • 28'

    Spurs concede another free-kick. They are asking for trouble here.

  • 27'

    Adebayor does well to win a flick-on against Bisevac but the striker is adjudged to have fouled the Lyon defender.

  • 26'

    Some lovely passing from Lyon around Spurs' box. Grenier soon picks it up and decides to shoot from distance but he is unable to keep his effort down.

  • 24'

    Walker goes into the book for a foul on Umtiti. He is having a tricky game so far.

  • 23'

    Lacazette wins the ball for Lyon and tries to pick out the run of Gomis but he gets his pass wrong and Spurs win back possession.

  • 23'

    Remember, as it stands, Lyon will be progressing into the next round.

  • 22'

    Dembele drives forward for Spurs but he fails to pick out the run of Bale. The winger was furious with his team-mate there.

  • 20'

    Grenier nearly beats the Spurs offside trap but the ball played through was overhit just a little. Spurs are on the back foot at the moment.

  • 19'

    It was Walker who brought down Lisandro again for the free-kick leading up to the goal. The Lyon man is giving him big problems.

  • 18'

    A great start for Lyon then as the tie swings in their favour. How will Spurs respond?

  • 18'

    Grenier swings in the free-kick and Gonalons rises highest to head home. Very poor marking from Tottenham.

  • 18'


  • 17'

    Walker fouls Lisandro again to concede the free-kick.

  • 16'

    Holtby is looking like the key for Spurs at the moment. He has been spraying plenty of clever balls around the pitch.

  • 16'

    Holtby nearly picks out the run of Adebayor with a first-time ball but the striker had already strayed just offside.

  • 15'

    Lyon to win, with bet365  
    Tottenham Hotspur to win, with bet365  

  • 15'

    Lennon gets to the byline down the left and swings a cross into the box but nobody is in the middle and Lyon are able to clear the danger with ease.

  • 14'

    Holtby picks out the run of Lennon with a great ball but the winger is forced away from goal thanks to some top defending.

  • 14'

    Tottenham finding it hard to keep hold of the ball at the moment. Lyon defending well.

  • 13'

    Assou-Ekotto nearly gets caught out by Lacazette but luckily for the Spurs man he is brought down and wins the free-kick right outside his area.

  • 12'

    Gerard Houllier is in attendance in the crowd...

  • 11'

    Grenier takes the free-kick but it goes straight into the wall. The Lyon man sends it into the box at the second attempt but Lacazette can only direct his free header straight at Friedel. Should have done better.

  • 10'

    Lisandro attacks Walker again but this time the Tottenham man brings him down and gives away a free-kick right on the edge of the area.

  • 9'

    Grenier picks out Lisandro with a superb cross-field ball but Walker does brilliantly to stand his ground before putting the challenge in.

  • 8'

    Lisandro looks to play in Lacazette in space down the right but the Lyon man is standing in an offside position. Lazy.

  • 7'

    Gallas gets on the end of Bale's set-piece but he is unable to direct it on target.

  • 7'

    Walker bursts forward down the right and does well to win the free-kick off Umtiti. Dangerous position this for Spurs.

  • 6'

    Lyon pressing Spurs very well, giving them absolutely no time on the ball.

  • 5'

    A nervous start for Spurs at the back. They have not dealt too well with either set-piece.

  • 4'

    Grenier sends the corner into the box but Spurs get it clear. It falls to Lisandro on the edge of the box but he sends his shot well wide of the target.

  • 3'

    Vertonghen gives away a corner to Lyon after getting in the way of Gomis' cross.

  • 2'

    Reveillere sends the ball into the box but Spurs are able to scramble it away to safety.
