Obviously I am talking about the moment Lucas slotted the ball in at 95.01 dropping the Ajax players like flies.

So where were you watching and what was your reaction??

I was sitting in my kitchen watching on the laptop (as with the City second leg).

When Moura scored I heaved and threw up a huge phlegm/sick ball, and sunk to my knees (away from the sticky mess), head on the tiles saying to myself this can't be real. Don't think I was ever so quiet for such a huge goal.

Carried on watching, and facebook messenger came up from friends saying congrats, while the game kept going for me, and i was babbling, its not over, is it over, fuck off its not over, maybe its over........ till the very end.

So whats your Magic Moura Moment????

Was at home on my own. Jumped on a bad knee and then just stood there bawling my eyes out in disbelief.

I was sitting at the terrace bar of the Victoria Falls safari lodge watching on my phone, overlooking a herd of elephant drinking at the water hole below and a pack of hyenas scrambling around beyond

Was pretty sweet I must say and I wondered at the time of anyone in the world had a finer spot to drink it all in (being at the game Notwithstanding)

I was at my parent's house with my Mum, Dad and heavily pregnant missus.


I hope to be celebrating a Cup Final winning goal at my parent's house with my Mum, Dad, missus and days-old son! :)

I was servicing the International Space Station, watching through the double lens of helmet and ISS porthole.

Celebrated by thrusting myself out into space in the direction of the sun.

At home. For the second goal I screamed and put down my phone on which I was playing PUBG out of hopelessness.

The the seconds ebbed away I grew more and more resigned until those two near misses at the end. After that I just accepted and waited for the game to end.

When Moura scored I let out a short rasping scream before checking once more to see if I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. The fucked up BT broadcast didn't help. All this happened between 95.01 and 95.03.

Then I just put my hand to my mouth and started a 30-minute nonstop bout of dry heaving sobs.

At home on my own, sat on the edge of the sofa and jumped up and shouted. Then sunk to my knees in front of the tv, jaw hanging just off the floor in disbelief. I was dead silent until lamela tried to put it through the ajax players legs at which point i scream"JUST GET RID OF IT ERIK!!"

Then jumped up and down again when the final whistle went, then back to my knees not being able to comprehend what had just happened and then pretty much just face planted the floor.

Watching at home on the sofa, I burst out laughing and kept shouting "No, I don't believe it" with interspersed bouts of swearing.

Then I fell face down onto the floor, still laughing.

I managed to sit back on the sofa for the closing minutes while simultaneously trying to process what I was seeing. I don't think I've ever felt anything like it before.

I watched it at home and I was in utter disbelief, first time I've never known what to do when celebrating...

I jumped up and shouted something along the lines of "oh my fucking god" and then just stood with my hands on my head for about 10 minutes and eventually sat down with tears in my eyes.

Leapt about the pub, screaming my drunken head off, hugging everyone in reach. Even hugged a Chelsea fan (who, to be fair, was cheering us on because his missus is a yid).
The pub is issuing wristbands for the final, to ensure the place doesn't get filled who non-regulars, spilling over from the bars and causing trouble. Plus, the landlord has said that he doesn't want locals, who have watched every game there, being crowded out for the final. Top work.
Got mine the other day and I cannot wait!

Was watching in our living room with my son, we just started screaming, jumping and swinging each other around the room. I hadnt been drinking but had to get myself a beer or two from the fridge after. I still cant believe we're in the Champions League Final its very surreal, will be even more so next weekend. If we win it.... jeez it would be incredible.

I was in the away end. During injury time I always put a stopwatch on my phone, and I was in the process of turning it off as I didn't think we had time for another attack. I looked up as Llorente brought the ball down and everything after that is a blur. I have a vague recollection of rocking on the floor in front of my seat in the foetal position in a tearful daze, it was absolute madness and chaos.

My fucking network adapter decided to freak out, obviously in anticipation of the coming furore, and so my BT stream cut out. After an expletive led, frenzied re-enabling, I reconnected to the broadcast only to see Lucas being mobbed on the deck, Pochettino ballooning about the pitch, with Jermaine Jenas sobbing over the microphone. I was mouth agape for about 5 minutes.

I was at the Johan Cruyff Arena. It's safe to say it was absolute carnage. The actual goal going in is a complete blur, the immediate aftermath is also quite blurry. What I do remember is falling down into the row in front amongst the absolute hysteria. After I was picked up, I genuinely was struggling to comprehend what had just happened and just sat down and tried to take in what was going on around me.

I have never experienced or seen anything like it. There was a mix of emotion, disbelief and just pure ecstasy. Grown men properly crying, people just looking around dumbfounded not knowing what to do with themselves. I don't think I'll ever experience anything like this again.

I found a hash brownie in my pocket just after getting into the stadium and decided not to eat it. I was already quite high and drunk but I honestly think my brain would've melted at the end of the game if i'd had it.

I was in Florida and was out during most of the match but following it on my phone wherever I could get free WiFi. Just about gave up when it went to 2-0.
Managed to get back to the villa to see the last 17 mins. Couldn’t believe it was 2-2 and then to see Lucas get the winner. Suffice to say I had a great time that night!
