The North London club went into tonight’s clash knowing anything other than a win would see them all but eliminated from this year’s competition, especially after losing the reverse fixture 2-1 in Italy in September.
After a frustrating opening hour, it looked like the crucial goal would never come, but the silky and composed Eriksen came to the rescue with just over 10 minutes remaining, after keeping his cool and slotting the ball in from close-range:
Relief for Tottenham! Huge relief!

So, Spurs still have realistic hopes of making it to the last-16, but they’ll have to somehow overcome Messi and co at the Nou Camp two weeks from now if they’re to progress.
Do you think they’ll make it to the knockout phase? And just how highly do you rate Eriksen?
