Barcelona were already sure of first place in their group before coming in to their final group game, and coach Valverde left several of his key players out of his starting line-up against Tottenham. With only seven minutes gone Dembélé ran through from his own half to open the scoring, and Coutinho hit the post once in each half. The Premier League side were playing for the second qualifying spot though, and Cillessen had to make important saves from Son, Eriksen and Lucas Moura. And with five minutes to go Moura got on the end of Kane’s cross to make it 1-1, a result which, with Inter Milan being held to a similar result at home to PSV, meant that Pochettino’s side will be joining Barça in next Monday’s draw.
