The Lowdown: Spurs seal opening group win…
Spurs sealed a hard-fought opening group game win over the Ligue 1 side on Wednesday evening courtesy of a quick fire brace from Richarlison.
The Brazilian enjoyed one of the nights of his career as his two late goals guided the Lilywhites to victory in Europe’s most prestigious competition.
In the last 15 minutes, Antonio Conte’s side managed to scrape a dramatic win to kickstart their Champions League campaign – but there were a few unsung heroes on the night also.
The Latest: Perisic praised…
Indeed, after he notched an assist for Richarlison and put in yet another effective display at wing-back, Croatia international Perisic has been lavished with praise.
Antonio Valle of ESPN was particularly in awe, claiming on social media that he just isn’t ‘talked about enough’.
“Perisic, that extremely constant player who is not talked about enough.”
The Verdict: Phenomenal signing…
Putting in another wonderful performance with a solid 7.2/10 match rating from SofaScore, last night’s encounter wasn’t Perisic’s only impressive display in a Spurs shirt so far.
The experienced international has proved a very capable outlet at wing-back thus far and could end up being one of the bargains of the summer at zero transfer cost.
Another piece of good news for Spurs supporters is the fact they have Perisic tied down until 2024.
