DO YOU KNOW? SPORTS GIST UCL MOURINHO SMILES AGAIN AS TOTTENHAM CAME FROM 2-0 TO SECURE A 4-2 UCL VICTORY By Admin Posted on November 27, 2019 2 min read 0 0 320 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Tottenham fought their way back from 2-0 down to secure a 4-2 victory over Olympiacos and secured their place in the knockout phase of the Champions League, with Serge Aurier and Harry Kane seeing them over the line in the final 17 minutes. Mourinho’s first European home match at the Spurs helm began rather miserably but Dele Alli, Aurier and a Harry Kane brace saw them produce a magical response and confirm a spot in the last 16 for last season’s beaten, finalists. Olympiacos left Spurs stunned as Youssef El-Arabi and Ruben Semedo already got two up by the 19th minute, only for a defensive lapse to hand Spurs a way back through Alli’s first Champions League goal in two years. Harry Kane then brought them leveled early in the second half after some quick thinking from a ball boy, an then Aurier blasted home to put Tottenham ahead, their lead doubled as the captain got his second in the 77th minute. However, a quickly taken Aurier throw-in released Lucas Moura and he teed up Kane for an easy finish to wipe out Olympiacos’ lead four minutes into the second half, with Mourinho subsequently embracing the ball boy whose swift action allowed Spurs to catch the defence out of shape. Victory looked assured for Spurs in the 73rd minute when Aurier hit a rasping half-volley into the left side of the net from close range. And Kane wrapped the win up a few moments later, guiding home from Christian Eriksen’s excellent free-kick delivery.
