Tottenham went through as UEFA Champions League Group D winners after coming from behind in stoppage time to beat Marseille 2-1 on a dramatic, frantic evening in France.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg struck in the 95th minute to secure Tottenham’s progress to the last 16 on a night when they were once heading out of the competition.

Spurs needed a draw to qualify from the group but Marseille took the lead through defender Chancel Mbemba on the stroke of half-time.

That meant Spurs dropped to third in the table, heading into the Europa League, before Clement Lenglet equalised early in the second half.

Tottenham were holding on desperately late on, but as Marseille pushed for the winner they needed to go through, they were caught on the break and Hojbjerg sealed victory for Spurs.
