AMSTERDAM — Facing a three-goal deficit at halftime, Tottenham pulled off another Champions League comeback for the ages.

Lucas Moura completed a hat trick in the sixth minute of injury time as Tottenham rallied to beat Ajax 3-2 on Wednesday and reach its first Champions League final, ending a remarkable run by the young Dutch team that had knocked off some of Europe's biggest teams along the way.

A day after Liverpool stunningly erased a 3-0 deficit from the first leg by beating Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield, Moura nearly single-handedly helped Tottenham pull off a similar feat in Amsterdam.
