(EFE) – Tottenham made up for the unexpected defeat (1-0) that they conceded on the last day against Belgian Antwerp, in the Europa League, with a comfortable victory (1-3) on their visit to the Bulgarian Ludogorets field, in a clash in which striker Harry Kane was once again essential.
The English international celebrated his 300th match in all competitions with the London team with a goal and an assist, which put the spurs on track.
Saddened by what happened a week ago in Antwerp, in a clash in which, as Jose Mourinho assured, “would have changed the eleven players at halftime”, the Portuguese stopped testing and lined up a powerful team led by Kane himself, the Welshman Gareth Bale and the Brazilian Lucas Moura.
A hat-trick that was decisive in Tottenham’s first two goals, since if Lucas Moura threw the corner that allowed Kane to open the scoring (0-1) to the English at 13 minutes, Moura himself was in charge of establishing in the 33 the 0-2 at the end of a play threaded between Bale and Kane.
Income with which Mourinho seemed to end the contest, as made clear by replacing Harry Kane at halftime with Brazilian Carlos Vinicius.
The change did not seem to sit well with Tottenham, who seemed to complicate the contest with the goal of Romanian Claudiu Keseru, who shortened distances for the locals (1-2) in the 50th minute.
Burden with which the Argentine Giovani Lo Celso was in charge of finishing, who established the final 1-3 in the 62nd minute at the end of a play by South Korean Heung-Min Son.
