Europa League: Lyon 1-1 Tottenham (Agg: 2-3)

Gareth Bale v Olympique Lyonnais

Lyon 1-1 Tottenham (Agg: 2-3)

Lyon's goal was scored by Gonalons (17') and Tottenham's goalscorer was Dembele (90'). Lyon's starting line-up was Vercoutre, Lovren, Fofana, Reveillere, Bisevac, Umtiti, Grenier, Gonalons, López, Lacazette and Gomis while Tottenham lined up with Friedel, Vertonghen, Gallas, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Parker, Bale, Holtby, Adebayor and Dembele.

Tottenham manager, Andres Villas-Boas was overjoyed with the result and Mousa Dembélé's last gasp goal. In the first leg at White Hart Lane Gareth Bale scored a second goal in stoppage time. 

"When you score in the last minute, especially with a goal that brings you into the next round, there are all the emotions going round," Villas-Boas said. "Everyone is buzzing to continue in this competition, which is why we reacted so joyfully. We regret sometimes being a team who needs to react and we only reacted after we conceded the goal tonight, but over the two legs we deserved to go through."
