Tottenham head to knockouts with comeback on Mourinho’s Champions League return

Harry Kane scored a second-half brace as Tottenham came back from two behind to beat Olympiacos 4-2, clinching a place in the next round.

Tottenham battled back from 2-0 down to secure a 4-2 win over Olympiacos and book their place in the knockout phase of the Champions League, with Serge Aurier and Harry Kane seeing them over the line in the final 17 minutes.

Jose Mourinho’s first European game and first home match at the Spurs helm began miserably but Dele Alli, Aurier and a Harry Kane brace saw them produce a blistering response and confirm a spot in the last 16 for last season’s beaten finalists.

A brilliant start by Olympiacos left Spurs stunned as Youssef El-Arabi and Ruben Semedo had the visitors two up by the 19th minute, only for a defensive lapse to hand Spurs a way back through Alli’s first Champions League goal in two years.

Kane restored parity early in the second half after some quick thinking from a ball boy, before Aurier blasted home to put Spurs ahead, their lead doubled as the captain got his second in the 77th minute.
