Defence earns travelling Bayer Leverkusen three points with 1-0 shutout over Tottenham.
Home fans came out in full support of the host side and would have hoped for a bit more as Tottenham entered the break tied with visiting Bayer Leverkusen. The home supporters did all they could to rally their side to victory, but were silenced by a second-half goal for Bayer Leverkusen. In the end, the one goal would be all the visitors needed as they were able to frustrate the host attack and keep the clean sheet.
Bayer Leverkusen’s lead on the scoreline was reflected on the field as well. They outshot Tottenham 11-9, with both teams hitting the target twice. Bayer Leverkusen finished the game with five corner kicks, while Tottenham took four.
Referee Eriksson was relatively anonymous as it was a pretty simple match to manage. Neither team was cautioned throughout the match, though both committed 10 fouls.
What Pochettino had to say
“There is nowhere better in the world to play football. We were the problem, not Wembley.”
“It is embarrassing for me.
“After two games at Wembley, Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen, there is no excuse. We were poor and we need to find the answer in ourselves.
“We are very disappointed and we cannot show the performance that we have in recent weeks – that is the problem.”
#Tottenham booed off following bizarre, limp display at Wembey. Wasted opportunity in front of 85,000, some of whom may not come back.

Moussa Sissoko catching plenty of criticism from Spurs fans inside Wembley tonight – this was the Newcastle Sissoko not the France Sissoko.
