Spurs needed to beat the Belgian side to finish at the summit and secure a seeding for the next stage, and second-half goals from Carlos Vinicius and Giovani Lo Celso got the job done.

Jose Mourinho again saw his side produce a flat first-half performance, a key feature of their group campaign, but would have been happy with what he witnessed after the break.

Vinicius tapped in after Gareth Bale’s free-kick had been tipped onto the post and then Lo Celso buried Antwerp with a cool finish with 20 minutes to go.

It means Spurs will get an opponent who finished in second place in Monday’s draw for the last 32 or one of the four unseeded sides who have dropped down from the Champions League.

In the match, Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand making his debut for Antwerp. He made good saves to deny Vinicius, Bale, Son, and Steven Bergwijn.
