Despite making it through to the knockout stages for a third consecutive season, Tottenham’s Champions League campaign has been a complete disaster from start to finish.
From squandering a two-goal lead in Athens against Olympiacos in their Group B opener, to that unforgettable mauling they were handed out by Bayern Munich in early-October – Spurs have looked a shadow of the team that reached the final less than 12 months ago.
One player in particular that has endured a difficult time in Europe this term is captain Hugo Lloris. The Frenchman started Spurs’ opening two group stage matches, conceding nine times in three hours of football before that nasty elbow injury against Brighton back in October mean he didn’t return until the knockouts.
Lloris looked back to his best in the first leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, making a host of wonderful saves to keep the German’s lead at just one.
However, in Leipzig on Tuesday, Lloris was anything but heroic. The goalkeeper made two howlers from Marcel Sabitzer and effectively cost his side the tie just 21 minutes into the second leg.
The three goals he conceded in Germany means that he actually let in more goals than saves he made in this seasons competition.
