Tottenham Hotspur recorded a hard-earned point in their Champions League clash against Bayer Leverkusen in Germany on Tuesday night.
Although Mauricio Pochettino’s men had chances to score in the first half, a backs-to-the-wall performance at the BayArena in the second 45 minutes saw the Premier League side share the spoils.

Undoubtedly the moment of the match was Hugo Lloris’ miraculous save to denied Javier Hernandez’s close-range effort.
With the ball centred and the former Manchester United striker having the goal at his mercy, the France international somehow got down to keep the ball out of the Spurs net.
The White Hart Lane faithful have been quick to take to Twitter to praise the gifted goalkeeper, with Lloris being hailed as one of the best players in his position in English and world football.
The save itself is one of the best that many Spurs fans claim they have ever seen, with their appreciation of Lloris’ heroics clear for all to see.
Here are the best tweets.

Can we all take a moment to appreciate how good Leno and Lloris were last night. Arguably some of the best saves I’ve seen.
