Tottenham Hotspur secured their place in the Europa League round of 16 by drawing a six-goal thriller in Austria.
José Mourinho’s men took the lead twice and Dele Alli’s substitute penalty in the 86th minute seemed to be enough to seal it until Mamoudou Karamoko shot home in injury time to make it 3-3.
