Spurs and Belgrade play stalemate
18 Sep 2014 22:10
Paritzan Belgrade 0-0 Tottenham
-
Tottenham held firm in intimidating conditions to kick off the Europa League group stage with a hard-fought, goalless draw at Partizan Belgrade.
-
Given manager Mauricio Pochettino left five key players in north London for this match, it was always likely to be a tough test, and so it proved.
-
Spurs lacked creativity but defended resolutely to secure a 0-0 draw in a daunting atmosphere at Partizan Stadium, where some home fans displayed what appeared to be an anti-Semitic banner.
-
It was an unsavoury sight and one Spurs may well complain about to governing body UEFA, just two years on from the disgusting racial abuse suffered by England Under-21s in Serbia.
-
Spurs left-back Danny Rose was caught up in the problems that night and was among those rested for the match against Partizan, which began brightly as Harry Kane rattled the crossbar inside the opening two minutes.
-
That, though, was to prove Spurs' best chance as they struggled to create clear-cut opportunities and spent large parts of the match on the back foot.
