[Video Goals] Real Madrid 1-1 Tottenham: Stunning Lloris Save Earns Spurs Point

By on October 17, 2017

Hugo Lloris produced a magnificent save to help earn Tottenham a valuable 1-1 draw against European Champions Real Madrid at the Bernabeu this evening.

Spurs started well and opened the scoring midway through the first half as Serge Aurier’s cross was flicked on by Harry Kane and his effort deflecting off Raphael Varane in to the Madrid net.

The La Liga giants were gifted the perfect chance to level things up before the break after Aurier was adjudged to have fouled Toni Kroos in the area. Cristiano Ronaldo made no mistake from the spot to make it 1-1 in the 43rd minute.

Madrid dominate after half-time and looked certain to take the lead when Karim Benzema was left free 6 yards from goal but his goal-bound header was stopped on the line by a stunning save from Lloris to keep it at 1-1.

Kane then had a chance to nick it for Tottenham but his shot squirmed past the far post after a fine touch from Keylor Navas so the two sides shared the spoils at the Bernabeu.

The result leaves Spurs level on points with Madrid at the top of Group H on seven points – six clear of Borussia Dortmund who were held to a 1-1 draw at APOEL this evening.
