Tottenham fightback

Jose Mourinho took charge of his first Champions League game as Tottenham boss on Tuesday.

Mourinho began life in North London with a 3-2 victory over West Ham this past weekend.

But when Olympiacos found themselves 1-0 up inside six minutes on Tuesday, Mourinho’s honeymoon period with Spurs looked set for an early end.

The Greek side doubled their lead 19 minutes into the tie.

However, Spurs pulled one back just before the break thanks to some fairly lackluster defending from Olympiacos.

Tottenham then put on a valiant second-half display to eventually win the game 4-2.

Tottenham’s win over Olympiacos also means they have now secured their place in the Champions League last 16.

However, they are unable to finish top of Group B as with one game to play, German giants Bayern Munich are five points ahead of them.

Kane’s record

After seeing off Olympiacos, it was revealed that Harry Kane has set a new Champions League record.

Kane bagged himself a brace in Tuesday’s comeback.

And according to the Evening Standard, those goals meant Kane became the quickest player in Champions League history to score 20 goals in the competition.

It took Kane 24 CL games to achieve said record.

The record was previously held by Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero, who scored his 20th goal in his 26th game, as per the Evening Standard.
