Tottenham Hotspur are one step into the Europa League quarterfinals following their 4-1 win over Austrian club side Wolfsberg at the Puskas Arena on Thursday, February 18.
Jose Mourinho's men were desperate for a win in the game after their back-to-back defeats to Everton and Manchester City in their last two outings.
However, they got the desired result in a grand style with an emphatic triumph - leaving little or nothing left to be done in the concluding fixture next week.
The North Londoners made no mistake from the blow of the whistle as they took on the Ferdinand Feldhofer's men, dominating proceedings from kick-off.
It took them just 13 minutes to find the opener, with Son Heung-Min steering a delightful header across the keeper into the bottom right.
Gareth Bale doubled the advantage just minutes to the half-hour mark, curling home a powerfully taken shot into the left.
Lucas Moura put the game to bed in the 34th minute, shimming his way past two defenders to finish off with a brilliant goal.
The hosts, however, drew one back 10 minutes into the second half through Michael Liendi who found the back of the net from the spot after Moussa Sissoko conceded a penalty.
Efforts by the home side to spring a comeback nonetheless proved futile, with Spurs adding a fourth goal through Carlos Vinicius deep in the second half to get the job done.
The EPL side's victory means they already have one foot in the round of 16 as Mourinho looks to guide them to their first-ever European title.
They will now shift their focus to their upcoming Premier League trip to West Ham United on Sunday, February 21.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Juventus were desperate to return to winning ways during their Wednesday night, February 17, trip to Estadio do Dragao, having suffered a defeat in the hands of Napoli at the weekend.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo and co. were unable to leave a mark against the Portuguese giants as they fell to another defeat in just days.
Porto wasted no time to take the early lead during the encounter, with Mehdi Taremi firing the hosts into the lead just a minute into the kickoff.
