All of Tottenham’s away games this season have ended with the same scoreline

Tottenham have also faced 72 shots in those games

Tottenham started their Champions League campaign this season with an easy trip to Greece, or so they would have thought.

Olympiakos are giants in their division, but Spurs should have had enough quality to see off their hosts.

Spurs got off to a great start with Harry Kane scoring from the spot and Lucas Moura doubling the lead with a great goal.

However, familiar failings at the back allowed Daniel Podence to score just before the half-time break.

Spurs were under immense pressure at the start of the second half as the home side sought an equaliser.

They were handed a golden opportunity with Jan Vertonghen fouling in the penalty box and Mathieu Valbuena smashed in the spotkick to make it 2-2.

Olympiakos had the better chances to get the third goal but Spurs held on for the point.

This was Tottenham’s third 2-2 draw of the season and all their away games have ended with this scoreline.

The more worrying stat would also be the number of shots faced on goal.

Tottenham have defensive problems

Facing 30 shots against Manchester City would not be a concern given the attacking talent Pep Guardiola has.

Tottenham took their chances well in that game as they came out with a point. Lucas Moura got the all-important goal and Spurs even rode their luck a bit with VAR coming to rescue them late on.

However, not being able to defeat an Arsenal side with a poor defence would have hurt Spurs.

Tottenham raced to a two-goal lead but allowed the Gunners to come back, and in the end, they were lucky to leave the Emirates with a point.

Mauricio Pochettino has to take a hard look at his defence as they cannot keep shipping the goals in, and it will be interesting to see the scoreline in their next game when they travel to Leicester City.
