Tottenham Hotspur face an onerous task to keep their Champions League hopes alive after defeat at home through the enormously extraordinary RB Leipzig.
Spurs, now stripped of long-term injury victim Son Heung-min with a broken arm as properly as Harry Kane, had been overwhelmed more convincingly than the scoreline suggests as the side lying 2nd in the Bundesliga established their growing stature.
And it was totally a masterclass from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris that presents Spurs hope for the 2nd leg in Germany, preserving Leipzig at bay with a string of extremely good saves before than he was beaten through Timo Werner’s 58th-minute penalty.
Lloris turned Angelino’s shot on to the post and saved from Werner inside the first minute, later denying the striker as soon as extra from point-blank range.
He was once powerless to stop Werner’s drilled spot-kick after Ben Davies fouled Konrad Laimer on the other hand saved Spurs in it with a integral block from Patrik Schick.
Spurs sooner or later forged possibilities of their very own after the break, with Leipzig keeper Peter Gulacsi turning Giovani Lo Celso’s free-kick on to the post and Lucas Moura heading over from close range – however it is advantage to Julian Nagelsmann’s team.
