In terms of results compared to last season, Tottenham Hotspur started their Champions League campaign better by getting a draw at Olympiacos. But how they got there is a source of consternation for Mauricio Pochettino ahead of Saturday's challenge from a spiky Leicester City side looking to bounce back from their first league loss.
The 2019 Champions League runners-up frittered away a two-goal lead in Athens on Wednesday night in settling for a 2-2 draw. Pochettino was incensed about the first goal, with came about shortly before halftime that gave a lifeline to the Greek squad they took full advantage of early in the second when Mathieu Valbuena goaded Jan Vertonghen into a penalty.
Valbuena then beat compatriot Hugo Lloris from the spot as Olympiacos claimed a share of the points and left Pochettino flustered over Spurs (2-2-1) blowing a two-goal lead for the second time in less than three weeks.
