Watch: Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris Pulls Off Incredible Save To Deny Leverkusen’s Chicharito

Tottenham secured what could be a precious Champions League point away at Bayer Leverkusen, thanks in no small part to the heroics of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Above all else, Spurs couldn’t afford to lose a second game out of their opening three, and actually enjoyed a good spell in the first half and hit the bar through Vincent Janssen in the first half.

However, Leverkusen thought they had scored just two minutes into the second half, former Manchester United striker Javier Hernández connecting on the end of a low cross from Lars Bender to slide the ball towards goal only to be denied by an incredible save from Lloris.

 

Hernández was convinced the ball had crossed the line, and even began to argue with the official behind the goal, but goal line technology clearly showed the the ball, somehow, had not crossed the line. In the end, the game finished scoreless.

At the halfway point of the group stage, Tottenham sit in second place with four points but Mauricio Pochettino knows that their next three results will have to be better, while Leverkusen will have to snap out of a run that has seen them draw their first three games.
