It's a great comeback for the hosts after going down 2-0. Spurs would have expected the three points at that point, but truth be told, the Greek side was the stronger team early on. A point each entering Matchday 2.
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Olympiacos Champions League score: Kane and Co. blow two-goal lead, earn draw in opener
Tottenham gave up a goal right before and right after half time
Tottenham opened up its Champions League campaign with a 2-2 draw at Olympiacos on Wednesday in Group B play. Spurs blew a 2-0 lead that they earned just 30 minutes into the match. Harry Kane scoring a penalty in the 26th minute and Lucas Moura made it 2-0 four minutes later with a lovely placed finish into the left side of the goal.
But Olympiacos did not give up, using pressure to cause Spurs trouble. Daniel Podence cut the lead to 2-1 just before the break with a clever finish. The home side then got a penalty of its own that Mathie Valbuena finished with precision to draw level at 2-2 early in the second half. Here's Podence's strike.
It's a fine result for both teams. Olympiakos started off better and deserved to go a goal up in the first half. Spurs will be bothered with blowing the lead, but they were fortunate to go up with the early chances the hosts had.
