Ryan Sessegnon equalised for Spurs in the 19th minute, smashing the ball passed Manuel Neuer into the left side of the net. This marked Sessegnon’s first goal for the club, an impressive feat in what was also his first start for Spurs.
Kingsley Coman suffered a horrific looking knee injury in the 27th minute. The Frenchman hyperextending his knee whilst chasing the ball.
Munich fired themselves back into the lead just on the stroke of halftime with substitute Thomas Muller drilling the ball into the middle of the goal following a deflection off the post.
