Tottenham secured a place in the last-32 of the Europa League by finishing their frustrating Champions League campaign with a win at Wembley on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were already out of the competition prior to their meeting with bottom side CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night, and they looked set to exit Europe altogether when Alan Dzagoev gave the visitors the lead after 33 minutes.

However, Dele Alli’s fine finish got the hosts back on level terms five minutes later, and striker Harry Kane gave them a half-time lead by tapping home from Danny Rose’s cross.

Igor Akinfeev’s own goal clinched the win and a Europa League spot for Spurs, who finish three points adrift of second place Bayer Leverkusen having picked up two wins and a draw in their six games.

It was not a great evening for Premier League champions Leicester though, as they were thumped 5-0 by FC Porto on Wednesday.

The Foxes had already secured top spot in Group G and manager Claudio Ranieri sent out a much-changed side against the Portuguese giants, but they were comprehensively beaten thanks to a brace from Andre Silva, and goals from Jesus Corona, Yacine Brahimi, and Diogo Jota.

The result means that Porto will join Leicester in the draw for the last-16 on Monday, where the Foxes will face one of Paris Saint-Germain, Benfica, Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, Real Madrid or Sevilla in the next round.

Nevertheless, it was Tottenham’s win that got many talking on Twitter, with many Spurs fans happy to finally get a win at Wembley…

While many raved about Christian Eriksen’s return to form, which saw him produce a man-of-the-match display on Wednesday night…

However, it was not a good night for Leicester, and many Foxes fan were hugely disappointed with their side’s effort in Porto on Wednesday…
