It took a while, but Tottenham Hotspur found its home form at Wembley Stadium in the UEFA Champions League.
Now it will have to take that to the Europa League after finishing third in its group to Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco; Spurs will be seeded in the UEL’s Round of 32.

Spurs striker Harry Kane and playmaker Dele Alli were the stars of the show, and both were pleased to give their fans a 3-1 win over CSKA Moscow after previous home matches yielded just one goal in losses to Bayer and Monaco.
Here’s Kane, from the BBC:
“We’ve learned to be better at home. You have to win your home games – you can’t rely on away results.
“We’ve finished the campaign well, there’s a bit of pride to send the fans home happy.”
Spurs finish three points back of Bayer and four back of Monaco, meaning a home win over either would’ve put them into the knockout rounds. That’s a lot to dwell on as Spurs consider Wembley versus White Hart Lane.
