HIGHLIGHTS
Highlights from Tottenham's 4-2 victory at home to Olympiakos.

It was a fantastic comeback from Jose Mourinho's side.

Stay tuned for highlights, they will be here when they are available.

Thank you for joining me here on Vavel for this important victory for Spurs and Jose Mourinho's second at the helm.

FULL TIME: TOTTENHAM 4-2 OLYMPIAKOS
Comeback complete for Spurs as a dominant second-half performance helps them qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champions League.
90' Three minutes added on here as Spurs control the closing stages of the game. After the fourth goal it has been incredibly comfortable for them.
88' Semedo gets his head onto the end of a cross from a corner but it does not trouble Gazzaniga at all.
85' SUBSTITUTION: Guerrero comes on for El-Arabi.
82' SUBSTITUTION: Dele Alli comes off for Tanguy Ndombele.

Dele has had another eye-catching performance to which he receives a standing ovation for.

81' Aurier draws another foul after another confident piece of dribbling to get away from his man. 

A man of the match candidate for sure.

77' Kane breaks the record for quickest player to reach 20 goals in the Champions League who is now on a hat-trick. 

Fantastic delivery from Eriksen and Kane buries the header from the free kick with ease. 

GOAL!!! TOTTENHAM 4-2 OLYMPIAKOS (KANE, 77')
FANTASTIC FROM ERIKSEN
75' Give Aurier credit where it is due, he has come under incredible stick from the media and fans this year, but he has been solid the last couple games and he has his reward.

Dele has been fouled by Podence but the Olympiakos man treads on him afterwards. Most likely an accident but the Olympiakos man receives a yellow.

73' WELL WHAT A STRIKE FROM SERGE AURIER! Dele Alli with a filthy piece of skill in the build up to get past his marker and drive a cross in which Son flicks on. His flick on reaches Aurier who hits the ball perfectly with swerve and pace! 
GOAL!!! TOTTENHAM 3-2 OLYMPIAKOS (AURIER, 73')
WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW
71' Yellow card for Tsimikas for a foul on Aurier who almost wipes out Jose Mourinho in the process.
70' Just wide! Eriksen strikes it so powerful and sweetly but it is fractionally wide and Olympiakos survive.
68' Free kick right on the edge of the Olympiakos area after great work from Dele! Chance here for Spurs to go in front!
65' There is the Eriksen Spurs have missed! He finds Son with a delicious ball out wide but his cross is turned behind for a corner.

The corner is poor and Olympiakos almost counter effectively.

63' Now the last referee decision was a shocker, but this one is almost more ridiculous - Winks tries to win a header in midfield, Camara has no intention of winning the ball and backs into him, wiping the Englishman out mid-air.

Free kick to Olympiakos.....

61' Alderweireld receives a yellow card - for the softest 'elbow' you will ever see. If Alderweireld was swatting a fly with that 'elbow' he wouldn't be doing it any harm.
61' SUBSTITUTION: Moussa Sissoko comes on for Lucas Moura.
60' Mady Camara has impressed tonight in the Olympiakos midfield and he almost sends Masouras through on goal but Gazzaniga is alert.
59' Foul on Gazzaniga lets Spurs off easy.
58' Olympiakos have a corner as they begin to probe the shaky Tottenham defence.
55' Wonderful clip of Jose Mourinho embracing the quick thinking ball boy after Kane's goal.

Bayern and Spurs going through to the knockout rounds as it stands.

53' There is still danger for Spurs however as another defensive mix up allows El-Arabi to almost get his head on a dangerous cross but Spurs survive.
50' Well, well played to the Tottenham ball boy who gets the ball rapidly for a quick throw in which Lucas Moura received, drove at the Olympiakos defence and pulled back for Harry Kane to bury home from close range!
GOAL!!! TOTTENHAM 2-2 OLYMPIAKOS (KANE, 49')
EQUALISER!!!

 

49' From one free kick chance to another, Olympiakos should be 3-1 up! Gazzaniga saves however before El Arabi can get a foot on it.
48' Fantastic ball in from Eriksen but Sanchez cannot direct it towards goal and it connects with his shoulder and goes well over.

Should be 2-2.

47' Spurs have started off on the front foot here, whatever Jose said at half time, it may have worked...

Free kick now for Eriksen to deliver.

46' Tottenham kick off the second half.
El Arabi goal
Have a look at this strike from Youssef El-Arabi!

This was to make it 1-0 to Olympiakos.

Half time scores
The scores from around the Champions League tonight.

Spurs trailing at home at the break.

HALF TIME: TOTTENHAM 1-2 OLYMPIAKOS
The corner was cleared easily but Dele's equaliser is a crucial one for Spurs. Half time now at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
45+1' Meriah has been a calm head at the back for Olympiakos but he attempts to clear and it was a complete air kick from him in the area and Dele taps home!

Corner to Spurs as well now!

GOAL!!! TOTTENHAM 1-2 OLYMPIAKOS (DELE ALLI, 45+1')
Disaster for Meriah!
45' Two minutes added time.
43' Kane knocks a high ball down for Eriksen to run on to but his touch is too heavy. 

Son then has a shot but it curls way too high and wide to trouble Sa.

42' Mourinho shouts "Calm" repeatedly towards Sanchez who overcooks his ball to Rose and it goes out for a throw in. 
41' The free kick was struck sweetly but it's just a little over the bar. Unlucky from Kane.
39' Semedo makes a fantastic tackle but the referee takes the opposite view. Yellow card for the defender and a free kick on the edge of the area for Spurs.
37' Olympiakos now look like they will sit back a bit and try and smother Spurs out but not take as many risks going forward.
32' Meriah has a strike from a long way out but Gazzaniga has it covered. This has been an awful performance so far from Spurs.
30' Only god knows what is going on inside Eric Dier's head right now, it is not often at all you see a player taken off after 29 minutes.
29' Aurier wins a corner out wide.

SUBSTITUTION: Eric Dier is replaced by Christian Eriksen after 29 minutes.

The corner is cleared.

28' Eriksen will be coming on shortly. 
27' Curse of the commentator as Semedo is back on; not really a curse for Olympiakos as the Portuguese defender has been fantastic for them this season.
24' The free kick arrives in a dangerous area but Spurs clear and then counter, but the referee stops play for an injury to Semedo. The defender does not look like he will be able to continue.
23' Lucas gives away a cheap foul on Tsimikas which gives Olympiakos the opportunity to whip in a free kick and put more pressure on the Spurs defence.
21' Kane is sent through by Lucas Moura but his shot goes wide, however the linesman's flag goes up anyway.
19' It was truly shocking defending from Spurs from the corner as they fail to clear or stop the flick on and then Alderweireld falls to sleep and lets Ruben Semedo ghost past him and tap home. Wow.
GOAL!!! TOTTENHAM 0-2 OLYMPIAKOS (SEMEDO, 19')
ANOTHER ONE FOR OLYMPIAKOS
18' Initial corner has been cleared but Dele gives the ball away cheaply which leads to another corner.
17' Sanchez finds Kane fantastically in the box with a whipped cross but Semedo clears.


Then Sanchez produces a Ledley King on Arjen Robben esque tackle on Podence who was bearing down on goal! Corner for Olympiakos now.

14' Wonderful save from Sa! It's a cute flick on from Son who tres to head it towards the far post but Sa parries it behind for a corner.

The corner is cleared twice but on the third time there is a pinball scramble in the box that almost drops to Son but the Greek side survive.

13' Free kick out wide for Spurs and Winks is over it.
12' Son runs directly at the Olympiakos defence as Dele creates the space but he overcooks his touch.

Dele finds Kane but Spurs can't make the most of the chance.

10' Spurs settling into the game well now and probing away as Dele is found in a pocket of space by Lucas Moura who the Englishman tries to find with a cute through-ball, but there is too much on it.
8' First chance for Spurs but Sa in goal for the Greek side is well alert to Alderweireld's long through ball seeking Son. If it was a fraction lighter, Son would have been through on goal.
6' What a strike from El-Arabi but Spurs will be disappointed with their efforts to close him down! The Moroccan was given plenty of space on the edge of the area and he strikes it cleanly into the bottom left corner past Gazzaniga.
GOAL!!! TOTTENHAM 0-1 OLYMPIAKOS (EL ARABI, 6')
Wow!
3' Injection of pace from Daniel Podence helps him glide past Eric Dier and Harry Winks but his through ball is poor. Masouras has a shot after which is held well by Paulo Gazzaniga.
2' Olympiakos controlling possession in the early exchanges but no chances yet.
Kick Off!
1' The atmosphere in the stadium is rocking tonight as Olympiakos kick off.
Five Minute warning!!!
Reverse fixture
Olympiakos held Tottenham to a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture earlier this year.

It is currently Olympiakos' only point in this season's Champions League.

Scene is set
It is Jose Mourinho's first game in charge at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

He has spoke so fondly of the stadium itself in the last week and it is easy to see why.

Earlier on today.....
Tottenham's U19 side faced off against Olympiakos's U19 side in the Uefa Youth League.

Troy Parrott scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory for Spurs with a wonderful finish.
