Champions League: Unbelievable save from Lloris helped Tottenham draw Real Madrid

Tottenham is in fantastic shape to advance from the Champions League group stage, and Hugo Lloris is a big reason why. After opening up with two wins, Tottenham got a well-deserved 1-1 draw at Real Madrid on Tuesday to move to seven points, and Hugo Lloris did his part. The French goalkeeper somehow saved this header from Karim Benzema early in the second half.

What a leg save that is. He reads it perfectly, takes up as much space as he can and pulls off a world class save. One of the world's best goalkeepers with one of the best performances in the year with eight saves in all.
