Spurs, who defeated LASK in their first group stage meeting 3Nil at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium saw themselves dominated in the first half by a very determined, and disciplined LASK side, who were able to break through Tottenham’s rugged defence in the 42nd minute when Michorl was allowed to turn and score an awesome goal from 25 yards.
Andrade the Own Goal Scorer in their first meeting was again the culprit, giving away a Penalty out to Tottenham while sliding in to block a shot from Ndombele before the end of the first half. Gareth Bale was the man stepping to the spot, he sent the keeper the wrong way, burying the ball behind the net for the leveler.
LASK dominated the game and had most of the possession. However that wasn’t all that is required as they also have to score goals to win. Spurs know how to score and that was evident in just their first break out if the game. Ndombele capitalised on a mistake from Medsen, then set up Son who runs through the LASK defence and buried the ball behind the net.
Spurs sprang to life, creating chances from then after a few changes from Mourinho. However, failing to capitalise on those chances led to the game getting leveled again in the 82nd minute. Eggestein, who disturbed the Spurs defence in the first half was able to beat three defenders and bury the ball past Hart to make the game 2 – 2 .
The game didn’t last level as Tottenham got another penalty a minute later with Alli stepping up to give Spurs the lead again. Karamoko was able to put the game leveled again in the 93ed minute. After some poor defending gave the forward enough time to bend the ball into the lower corner past Hart.
The Draw leaves Spurs with 10 point and a guaranteed second place finish in the Europa League group stage table with three points above LASK and two points below Royal Antwerp in group J.
