Lucas Moura Delighted to Banish Nou Camp Demons With Spurs
Spurs winger Lucas Moura was delighted to score the goal to take Spurs through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, especially given his past experiences in the stadium.
Moura scored the equaliser against Barcelona, which qualified Tottenham from their group at the expense of Inter Milan. Lucas had been part of the PSG team that surrendered a 5-1 aggregate lead to Barca in 2016.
“It was a very important goal and I’m so happy to score here in the Nou Camp in the Champions League and help my team-mates to qualify,” Lucas told Spurs’ official website.
“It was an amazing moment. The last time here was really sad for me (referencing PSG’s 6-1 defeat) and this is really different.
“In the second half we did very well. We had many chances to score. We could win. It was a deserved result. After the game we didn’t know what the Inter result was and didn’t know if I could celebrate!
“I waited with my team-mates to see and when they said to me it was 1-1 and I saw the fans happy, I knew we’d qualified. It was a very happy night for me, an amazing moment.”
