Maribor vs. Tottenham Hotspur  1 - 1

General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' N. Komazec enters the game and replaces Marcos Tavares.
Maribor's main man Tavares is replaced by Nikola Komazec. The Brazilian was largely ineffective tonight. Far from a defensive sub, manager Milanic has brought on an out-and-out striker.
88' Vertonghen steps up from centre-back and Maribor fail to get out and close him down. The Belgian takes aim and launches a rasping drive from 35-yards that whizzes past Handanovic and his far post. Close!
86' Naughton makes an excellent challenge to halt Milec's advances down the flank. Maribor recover possession and find Tavares, who almost finds Ibraimi inside the box. Spurs yet to create anything more than a half-chance since drawing level.
84' J. Livermore enters the game and replaces Sandro.
Sandro, arguably Spurs best player of the night, is replaced by Jake Livermore.
82' Maribor are beginning to operate a little more defensively, perhaps happy to settle for a point. Tottenham continue to probe but without really testing Handanovic.
79' Dempsey is found in space, takes a touch and attempts an ambitious 35-yard shot. It's poorly struck and easy for Handanovic to save. The American had time, space and options there.
77' WHAT A CHANCE! The centre-back Rajcevic bursts forward from defence, gliding past Huddlestone and the Spurs midfield. He feeds Milec and the full-back plays a brilliant ball across the face of goal for Beric. The striker can't sort his feet out quickly enough, and the ball bounces off his shin and just wide of Lloris' post. The French keeper was scrambling, but the Maribor frontman was belatedly flagged offside.
75' C. Dempsey enters the game and replaces G. Sigurðsson.
Sigurdsson, who scored Spurs' equaliser but was otherwise disappointing, is replaced by Clint Dempsey. Villas-Boas is looking for a winner.
73' K. Naughton gets yellow.
Ž. Filipović enters the game and replaces D. Mezga.
Naughton gets forward and jinks his way into the box. He side-steps Milec and looks to have his ankles kicked by the full-back. The referee blows his whistle, but only to give Naughton a yellow card for diving. Harsh, the Maribor defender looked to have made contact with Naughton there.
70' Spurs have extended possession in Maribor's half before Huddlestone tries a dinked cross into the box. Falque recovers the ball and lays it off for Defoe, who takes a touch, cuts inside and fires a deflected shot into the arms of Handanovic.
