Tottenham Hotspur took part in the Audi Cup semi-final today, playing against Real Madrid in the semi-final of the pre-season tournament.

The Lilywhites came through as 1-0 winners and will now play the winner of Bayern Munich and Fenerbahce in the final in Germany tomorrow.

Let’s take a look at how the players got on in the Allianz Arena:

Paulo Gazzaniga – 7 – Came out well to block an early chance and stood firm to every save he had to make. An improvement from his performances in Asia.

Juan Foyth – 6.5 – Defensively he looked very strong at right-back, as you would expect. However, he rarely got forward in attack and seemed a little bit lost past the halfway line.

Toby Alderweireld – 8 – Solid as always. Threw himself in front of several shots and defended expertly.

Jan Vertonghen – 7.5 – Does what Toby does but using his left foot.

Danny Rose – 6.5 – Great to see Rose back out there and had a decent run out considering he hasn’t played much football.

Harry Winks – 6.5 – Kept the ball nicely and always seems to keep things moving. However, we haven’t seen anything close to his best so far this pre-season.

Tanguy Ndombele – 6.5 – Another relatively quiet one from the Frenchman, but he certainly isn’t doing anything wrong. Probably a case of bedding into the new style of play.

Christian Eriksen – 6 – Looked decent in attack but there was little end product. Again, he has had little football so it’s a case of building up fitness and sharpess.

Erik Lamela – 8.5 – I thought the Argentine looked great out there. Lots of effort, skill on the ball, and created numerous chances for Spurs.

Heung Min Son – 7.5 – A good chunk of minutes under his belt and the Korean looked sharp again. Went close with one edge of the box shot.

Harry Kane – 8.5 – Could have had a few out there today, but he took his goal expertly. Looks extremely fit and ready for the new season.

SUBS:

Hugo Lloris – 6.5 – Didn’t have too much to do but he didn’t put a foot wrong really. Could have done a little better on the offside goal.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 6 – Looked good going forward but a little defensively naive today.

Davinson Sanchez – 7 – Defended really well and looked very mature in that young second half back line. Good signs for the Colombian.

Japhet Tanganga – 8.5 – Yet again a star performer. Threw himself in front of shot after shot and stopped Hazard from scoring a sure goal.

Anthony Georgiou – 7 – Looked better all around today, but I see his role as a third-choice at best this season.

Oliver Skipp – 6.5 – Came on and did a job defensively. Good signs for the season ahead after a solid pre-season.

Moussa Sissoko – 7 – Far better defensively and moving forward today after that strange affair against United.

Dele Alli – 7.5 – On the ball, a tad sloppy again. However, his off the ball runs were on point and he deserved a goal or two.

Lucas Moura – 7 – His usual live wire self, just without a goal. Put in a delightful cross to Dele Alli.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou – 5 – Seems like Spurs are trying to put him in the shop window and I for one would not buy after that.

Troy Parrott – 7.5 – Looked sharp again and dug out a brilliant shot to hit the post late on. How he hasn’t scored in pre-season, I will never know.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Skipp was MOTM for me. I’d like to see the 2nd half tackle stats, sure he had the most. And really crisp and direct passing. Hope he keeps developing
