[Video Goals] Tottenham 1-2 Monaco: Sloppy Spurs Crash At Wembley

Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League campaign got off to a disappointing start as they went down 2-1 to Monaco at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League campaign got off to a disappointing start as they went down 2-1 to Monaco at Wembley on Wednesday night.

The Ligue 1 side arrived in England in good form and it showed as they opened the scoring in the 15th minute as Bernardo Silva out-muscled Ben Davies to fire past Hugo Lloris after Erik Lamela had lost possession in the middle of the park.

Monaco then doubled their advantage in the 31st minute when substitute Thomas Lemar lashed home a loose ball from close range to leave Spurs with it all to do.

The hosts gave themselves a chance after reducing the deficit to 1-2 on the stroke of half-time when Toby Alderweireld headed home a Lamela corner to set things up nicely for the second half.

Tottenham pushed for the equaliser after the break but failed to take their chances and eventually slumped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat in their Group E opener.
