UEFA: Tottenham come back to win 4-2 against Olympiacos

By Waweru

Jose Mourinho made clear his return to the champion’s league with a dramatic comeback win against Olympiacos in the champion’s league, leading Tottenham to the round of 16 qualifications. Spurs went two-goal down before coming back to claim a 4-2 win

Spurs’ defence was shaky in the first half, conceding a Ruben Semedo goal only six minutes into the game, with Youssef El-Arabi driving low for the second goal 13 minutes later.

The special one made a tactical change, bringing in Christian Eriksen for Eric Dier, but it was an error from Yassine Meriah that brought spurs back, gifting Dele Ali a goal that halved the deficit in the first-half stoppage time

Dele Ali brought some magic in the box with sublime footwork before crossing in from the left side of the box, beating the Olympiacos defence to find Aurier in the penalty area after a flick from son Heung-Min, to slam a half-volley into the far corner

The England captain then slotted in the fourth, breaking Alessandro Del Piero’s record as the player to score 20 champions league goals in the fewest games, when he scored so many goals in 24 games, compared to the Italian’s 26 games with Juventus

Meanwhile, polish striker Robert Lewandowski scored the fastest champions league quadruple to help Bayern Munich beat red star Belgrade by 6-0. Galatasaray was held to a 1-1 draw by Club Brugge and so did English Premier League defending champions Manchester City against Shakhtar Donetsk.

 

PSG recovered from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid, while Atalanta won by two goals to nil against Dinamo Zagreb.

A spectacular free-kick from Paulo Dybala gave Juventus a Champions League win over Atletico Madrid and guaranteed them a spot in the knock out stage
