Video: Lamela escapes red card for dangerous challenge


Erik Lamela has had a lucky escape with a challenge which could have easily seen him shown a straight red card.

The winger lost possession of the ball on the halfway line and tried to win the ball back with two feet, making contact with Marcelo Brozovic instead.

The Inter Milan midfielder was left in a crumpled heap on the floor and accused Lamela of stamping on him.

That could have been a disaster for Tottenham if they were to have been reduced to ten men, thankfully, Lamela was instead shown a yellow card by the Turkish referee.
