Tottenham Hotspur held a 1-1 draw against Sporting CP in the last night’s UEFA Champions League game.

Throughout the game, Tottenham Hotspur was unable to click against a disciplined defence of Sporting. Coates, Ugarte, and Morita were lying deep as it reduced space for Spurs’ players to operate in the final third.


Tottenham has maintained their status of Group leader even after having a draw last night. But Sporting is now in a must-win situation against Frankfurt to qualify for the next round of the Champions League in the next game.


Tottenham will meet Marseille in the next Champions League fixture, they will also have to secure a win or a draw to seal their further progression in the tournament.

Overall, Tottenham Hotspur did not have a good game as they struggled to score goals or create significant chances. Jermaine Jenas as a co-commentator on BT Sport criticised Lucas Moura’s performance on his first start.

He said: “Really poor that from Lucas. It was on a plate for him to whip the ball across but he can’t even beat the first man. He’s going to be slightly rusty, not been out there for a while.”


While talking to BT Sport, Antonio Conte revealed his thought on the cancelled goal and VAR. He spoke: “VAR is doing a lot of damage. I want to see if in another stadium of a big team they are ready to disallow this type of goal. I’d like to know this. A lot of injustice. I don’t like this type of situation.”


He did praise his team’s display in the second half. As he added: “The second half was positive and we played with great intensity. We deserved to win but we know what happened.”
