Result Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Tottenham: final score, goals, highlights and Champions League match report

Tottenham had to settle for a point in Frankfurt after suffering a frustrating goalless draw from the Champions League Group D game.

Eager to bounce back after Saturday’s humiliating defeat by rivals Arsenal, Spurs put in a much-improved performance but failed to show enough quality in the final third.

Antonio Conte saw Son Heung-min and Harry Kane squander chances, meaning they had to settle for a 0-0 draw that left Tottenham with a good chance of qualifying for the knockout stages after three group games brought.

Conte left with the same eleven that lost the north London derby last weekend and Emerson Royal, sent off at the Emirates, looked determined to make amends with an early shot on goal.

A free-kick won by the Brazilian soon after dodged both Cristian Romero and Kane before the hosts enjoyed their best stretch of the first half. Frankfurt won three corners in quick succession, the first after captain Sebastian Rode saw his shot from inside the box deflected wide by Ivan Perisic, but Spurs stood firm and should have taken the lead in the 25th minute.

The visitors’ attacking trio connected brilliantly with Son receiving a pass from Richarlison after a smart fool, but his ball over the goal had too much pace and Kane was unable to convert.

Son and Kane were starting to get in the mood and they combined again, the latter shooting wide from 22 yards after an excellent spin. It was Son who threatened next just before half-time after a great shot from Kane, but the South Korean deflected that shot wide.

Tottenham were good up front but remained goalless at the break after Perisic saw a try deflected by Kristijan Jakic after Emerson’s cut.

Both teams pushed for a breakthrough at the beginning of the second period and the duel in Group D finally ended.

Frankfurt, who created the first chance after the restart when Djibril Sow brilliantly lobbed Ansgar Knauff on the run, but the full-back saw his feeble volley off the turn go straight at Hugo Lloris.

Conte’s side responded immediately with Son playing in the overlapping Perisic, but his cutback for Kane was thwarted by Evan Ndicka’s sliding tackle. Despite limping away after a slam on the knee, Kane carried on and Son wasted another beautiful opening in the 54th minute when he curled up.

Six minutes later, Frankfurt almost found Tottenham with a slob when Rode recovered the ball after a Romero error but Jesper Lindstrom curled up from the box.

The intensity of the second half waned after that and Conte turned to his bench with 19 minutes to go as Ryan Sessegnon was introduced and Ben Davies and Bryan Gil soon joined him on the pitch as the seconds ticked by.

Spurs survived penalty challenges from the hosts shortly after their double substitution when Knauff’s shot was blocked by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s hand, but referee Daniele Orsato was happy to let play continue.

Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was eventually tested for the first time in the 81st minute but Kane’s half-volley was easy and despite three minutes of added time in Germany Tottenham had to settle for a point that keeps them second in the group.
