(Manchester City – Tottenham 4-3, 4-4 overall) Tottenham are ready for their first semifinals in the Champions League after a new goal record and overtime cancellation.
– Omggg! I love you boys !!!! to chirp Harry Kane, the team's best scorer.
Substitute Fernando Llorente decided the soccer melodrama with the hip of all things. He knocked it home to 4-3 in 73 minutes.

"It was useful," says Pep Guardiola, Manchester Citymanager for BT Sport.
Judge Cüneyt Çakir checked one of them if Llorente illegally used his arm to score with the VAR, but found no reason to cancel.
He did, however, within two minutes of overtime when Raheem Sterling thought he had placed 5-3. The players of the city released all the emotions and Guardiola was out of luck.
– Do not believe
But they applauded too soon. The goal was rejected because of an impediment. So Tottenham wait for Ajax in the semi-finals. In the second, Liverpool and Barcelona meet.
"There were huge emotions, but then we left soon, sugar Guardiola.
"I've never seen anything like it." It was crazy. Sometimes you get annoyed with the VAR, but today, thank you, says Tottenham's Heung-Min Son to BT Sport.
Also Ilkay Gündogan had a great chance to decide for Manchester City on the field, but short-range his volleyball went over.
The way the fight ended was not to be believed. I'm so happy and proud. My players are heroes, says Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino for BT Sports.

Incredible goal record
After the first 21 minutes at Etihad, there were 2-3 for Manchester City. From the first goal to the fifth, it took 17 minutes. Never before have we had so many goals in so few minutes in one Champions League match, the organizer informs UEFA.
"Everything" went like this:
4 minutes into the game Raheem Sterling gave City the lead at 14 meters.
7 minutes in: 1-1. A small involvement of Aymeric Laporte gave way to Heung-Min Son to equal the 16 meters. Nor is it an awesome goalkeeper game by Ederson.
– United has no one to rely on
10 minutes: 1-2. Laporte lost the ball on the way forward. From 16 meters, Son puts the ball near the intersection.
Bernardo Silva finished off with Danny Rose. The ball changed direction and Hugo Lloris was thrown out. Thus, equalization has emerged.
21 minutes: 3-2. A phenomenal post from Kevin De Bruyne made it easier for Sterling to enter City's third goal.

Agüero has the objective
38 minutes later came the 4-2 goal for City. De Bruyne served for the third time, and Sergio Agüero hit the ball at the nearest corner.
The goal recalled a bit about how he established the championship in 2012, then on the overtime in the last round of the series.
So it seemed that the city would move on. But of course this football game had so much more inside. Light blue should now focus on the Premier League and FA Cup titles.
PS! Tottenham were in the semifinals of the European Cup in 1962. Then there was a defeat against Benfica.
PS2! Heung-My Son loses the first semi-final due to suspension.
