Two Late Strikes Secures Victory For Sporting Lisbon Against Tottenham

Two late strikes from Portuguese Giant, Sporting Lisbon has secured the maximum three points for them against English side, Tottenham Hotspurs in the ongoing UEFA Champions League.

With what seem to be a 50-50 affair, the Portuguese side made good use of the last ten minutes leading to their reward.

Spurs in the first department of the game, had lots of possession but their sweet play could not secure them a goal.

Striker, Richardlison found the back of the net for the visiting team but his goal was ruled offside by a VAR check.

Sporting on the other hand knocked hard at the door of Tottenham and were almost rewarded in the last minute of the first half but skipper, Hugo Lloris denied the Portuguese side.

Sporting managed to nick it in the final moments!

A brilliant save from Lloris was for nothing as Paulinho headed in the resulting cross to seal what should be three points for the hosts and send the crowd into raptures.

Few minutes later, Arthur Gomes' sucker punch sealed it for the home side.

Sporting made two substitutions after their first goal.

One of the substitutes, Arthur Gomes, had just come on, ran down the pitch and doubled the lead.

His goal turned out to be his Sporting and European debut.
