With the Premier League chip out of mind, Tottenham settled on that of the UEFA Europa League and concentration was pushed to the max with a resounding 4-1 win over Wolfsberger at the Púskas Arena in Budapest.
This was the meeting in which it was time for Gareth Bale to shine with Spurs, and the Welshman gave the assistance to Heung-Min Son to open the account at 13 minutes of play with a header almost from the ground behind his partner’s right center.
Minutes later the Cardiff Express put his name on the scoreboard after scuttling towards the bottom, making a hook that left an opponent on the ground and taking an unapproachable left-footed shot towards the goalkeeper’s far post.
In any case, not everything was said in the first half, as the Londoners scored the third thanks to an excellent individual play by Lucas Moura, who got into the area after passing between three rivals and shot from the right.
In the second half, the team led by José Mourinho took their foot off the accelerator and allowed themselves to come a bit, which allowed Wolfsberger to discount at 55 minutes, although he did not have too many shocks towards the end of the duel to put the final quarter at 89 ‘with Carlos Vinicius.
With this result, Tottenham set foot in the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League in anticipation of the second leg, while they will return to Premier League action against West Ham on Sunday 21.
