Europa: Tottenham qualify for last 32

Heung-Min Son, Gareth Bale and Dele Alli papered over a poor Spurs performance as a 3-3 draw at LASK ensured Jose Mourinho’s side qualified for the Europa League last 32.

Spurs were outplayed in the first half on a freezing night in Linz and trailed to Peter Michorl’s long-range effort which squirmed under Joe Hart (42).

But the visitors were gifted an equaliser when Andres Andrade handled Tanguy Ndombele’s shot and Bale beat Alexander Schlager from the penalty spot (45+2).

Bale should have put the result beyond doubt six minutes later but he attempted to square for Son and missed his team-mate. Hart was then again at fault to allow Johannes Eggestein to level from outside the box (84).

LASK again had themselves to blame within minutes, however, with substitute Steven Bergwijn brought to ground in the box by Philipp Wiesinger.

Alli set himself to cheekily chip Schlager to give Spurs the lead, with the sort of swagger the rest of their performance had been severely lacking.

There was still time for more drama in added time as another substitute, Mamoudou Karamoko, levelled with another effort from distance which this time left Hart with no chance. It was not enough to keep LASK’s hopes alive, as their head-to-head record against Spurs saw them eliminated.
