Champions League: Spurs blow two-goal lead to draw at Olympiakos

Tottenham Hotspur began their UEFA Champions League campaign with a disappointing 2-2 draw as they blew a two-goal lead against Olympiakos.

Spurs, who finished as silver medalists last season in the competition, were forced to settle for a point in their opener.

Two goals in four minutes put the English side in control, with Harry Kane opening the scoring from the penalty spot before Lucas Moura’s scorching 20-yard finish on the half hour mark.

But Portuguese winger Daniel Podence halved the deficit for Olympiakos just before halftime.
