Tottenham Hotspur are through to the last 16 of the Europa League after Mousa Dembele scored late in their match with Olympique Lyonnais.

Dembele's goal on 90 minutes came just in the nick of time, with Tottenham struggling to find a way through a stubborn Lyon defense leading 1-0 on the night and going through on away goals. As it was, the Belgian's precise, long-range shot equalized the match and gave his team a 3-2 aggregate advantage.

Spurs will face Inter Milan in the next round, reawakening memories of the two clubs' Champions League meetings just over two years ago. The Italians sealed their own progress with a comfortable 5-0 aggregate win over Romanian outfit CFR Cluj.

Despite the joy over their victory, Tottenham will be seeking an improvement on their performance Thursday night, and they will take good and bad from this game.
