Tottenham Hotspur were on the wrong side of a three-goal drama in Monaco on Tuesday which saw the London club crash out of the Champions League.
Monaco rubber-stamped first place in Group E and a ticket to the Champions League round 16 thanks to a 2-1 win over Spurs, who must now concentrate on finishing third.
The French side might have taken the lead after 11 minutes when Hugo Lloris saved Radamel Falcao’s penalty, and Valere Germain also spurned a glorious chance before the break. Instead, it was Djibril Sidibé’s header that put the hosts in front three minutes after the interval.
Although Harry Kane levelled from the spot four minutes later, Monaco reclaimed the lead immediately with Thomas Lemar producing an expert finish from Sidibe’s deep cross. In fact, Monaco ended in control, and they would have added a third if not for an inspired save by Lloris from Kamil Glik.
