Tottenham Hotspur did not make a mistake in Group J of the Europa League on Thursday-evening. José Mourinho’s team lost to Royal Antwerp (2-1) last week, but this time won 1-3 against the still scoreless Ludogorets. Harry Kane opened the scoring and is now scoring 200 goals for Tottenham in 300 official games. Steven Bergwijn came in halfway through the second half at Tottenham as a replacement for Gareth Bale.
It took Kane only twelve minutes to reach his milestone. The striker was allowed to move undisturbed in the penalty area after a corner from Lucas Moura and headed from close range: 0-1. With the 0-2 the roles were reversed: Kane prepared Lucas’s goal. After 32 minutes of play, Kane received the ball on the right side of the penalty area from Gareth Bale. He passed the doctrine directly to Lucas, who was in the right place to double the margin for Tottenham.
It was a logical score, as Tottenham dominated in the first half. Mourinho’s team played considerably better than last week, when Royal Antwerp was too strong. Ludogorets needed a lot of time to get into the game, but came out threatening a few times. Shortly after the break, Ludogorets came back into the game. It was a fortunate goal: a bet by Bernhard Tekpetey, who came in the lines in the second half as a replacement for Elvis Manu, was changed direction by Tottenham Hotspur, after which Claudiu Keseru was able to work in the ball from close range.
However, it did not take long before Tottenham expanded the margin to two goals again. The visitors easily combined towards the enemy goal and Giovani Lo Celso acted as the end station of the attack, after a sharp pass from substitute Heung-Min Son: 1-3. Just after the goal, Bergwijn made his entrance and a few seconds later he almost scored, but his shot rolled wide of the goal.
