Spurs swagger past Red Star in record Champions League win

Date published: Tuesday 22nd October 2019 9:54

Tottenham eased past Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League, as goals from Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Erik Lamela secured a comfortable 5-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The result was a record for Spurs in the competition, beating their previous best – a 4-1 home victory over FC Twente in 2010.

Kane – captaining the side in the absence of Hugo Lloris – opened the scoring for Spurs in the 9th minute, flicking the ball in from a superbly whipped corner by Lamela.

The Argentinian got his second assist just five minutes later, expertly picking out Son in the box to fire home from close range.

Son made it three on the stroke of half time, after Belgrade captain Marko Marin lost possession to Tanguy Ndombele, who drove towards goal before laying the ball on a plate for the South Korean.

Lamela scored the goal that his all round play deserved 10 minutes into the second half, controlling a Serge Aurier cross expertly in the box before firing his shot past Milan Borjan.

Kane made it five soon after, slotting the ball into the far corner after a through ball from Moussa Sissoko.

Spurs missed a host of further chances as they were afforded the freedom of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium throughout by a dodgy Red Star defence.
