Tottenham Hotspur have finally broken the deadlock against ten-man Marseille in what has been a frustrating evening in north London.

The goal came in the 76th minute of the opening match in Group B when Ivan Perisic cut back inside to cross the ball and Richarlison found himself unmarked to power his header beyond Pau Lopez.

The goal was Tottenham’s first attempt on target with Antonio Conte’s side having struggled to create many clear cut chances.

Marseille were reduced to ten men when Chancel Mbemba was shown a straight red card for hacking down Heung-min Son when the South Korean was through on goal.
