Referee Joao Pinheiro handed out four red cards after the final whistle, including one to substitute goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin who hadn’t even featured in the encounter.
But despite the pandemonium upon the game’s conclusion,the Portuguese outlet claimed that a Tottenham had a representative in attendance to watch the goings-on at the Estadio Do Dragao.
However, there was no mention of which players Spurs in particular were planning to monitor.

The list of representatives also featured those from Sevilla, Villarreal, Celta Vigo, Fiorentina, Atalanta, Nice, Monaco, Montpellier and RB Leipzig, who all watched the feisty draw.
