After falling at the last hurdle in last season’s Champions League campaign, Tottenham were unable to keep hold of a two goal advantage against a difficult Olympiacos side.

Here are the top stats and facts from the disappointing Group B opener in Greece.

Tottenham failed to win a Champions League game having been two goals ahead for the second time and first since drawing 2-2 with Werder Bremen in September 2010.

Since the start of last season, Spurs have conceded more goals than any other side in the Champions League (21).

Olympiakos are winless in nine Champions League matches (D2 L7), their longest winless run in the competition.

Only Ruud van Nistelrooy (19) and Roberto Soldado (19) scored their first 15 Champions League goals in fewer games than Harry Kane (20).

Lucas Moura scored just his second goal from outside the box for Tottenham in all competitions and his first since August 2018 vs Fulham. The Brazilian has also netted four goals in his last three Champions League games, as many as he’d netted in his previous 23 in the competition.
