Football: More Wembley woe leaves Spurs in Euro danger

LONDON, Nov 2, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 03rd Nov, 2016 ) - Tottenham suffered more Champions League misery at Wembley as a 1-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday left them in danger of failing to qualify for the last 16. Mauricio Pochettino's side are playing their European matches at Wembley this season while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped and the temporary move has proved a disaster for the north London club. Already beaten by Monaco in their first game at their adopted home in September, Tottenham were rocked at Wembley again as Kevin Kampl bagged Leverkusen's second half winner.

Since winning their first match at the rebuilt English national stadium against Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final, Tottenham have now lost six consecutive games at Wembley. It could have serious consequences for Tottenham's Champions League campaign as Leverkusen's first ever win in England lifted them above the Premier League team into second place in Group E. Tottenham, without a win in their last six games in all competitions, are two points behind Leverkusen with two games remaining against Monaco and CSKA Moscow.

"We don't have the freedom to play and show real quality. After two games at Wembley, both have been poor. It is not an excuse, it is the truth," Pochettino said. "We need to improve and change some things. We are in a bad moment." Leverkusen coach Roger Schmidt added: "I'm very happy because this was a very difficult away game and we won it. "Tottenham are unbeaten in the Premier League so that makes it even more special."
