Olympiacos Squander Two-Goal Lead to Lose 4-2 Against Tottenham



Olympiacos gave new Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho a scare on his home debut on Tuesday, but despite an impressive first-half performance, the Greek side threw away a two-goal lead and lost 4-2 to the English Premier League club at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

Morocco international El Arabi, who was afforded his eighth appearance in the competition this season, opened the scoring for the Greek club six minutes into the encounter.

Ruben Semedo doubled the lead before Aurier ignited Spurs’ comeback win, setting up Dele Alli’s strike just before the half-time break.

Harry Kane finished shortly after the interval to level, and Serge Aurier netted in the 73rd minute before Kane headed a fourth four minutes later.

All is not lost for Olympiacos though, as they can still make the Europa League knockout stages if they win their last game.
