Ryan Sessegnon marked his first Tottenham Hotspur start with a goal but could not prevent Spurs from losing 3-1 to Bayern Munich in Manager Jose Mourinho’s final UEFA Champions League group game.

 

Both sides had already qualified for the last 16, with Bayern progressing as Group B winners and Tottenham going through as runners-up, and consequently made numerous changes for Yesterday’s encounter at the Allianz Arena.

 

Bayern,who beat Spurs 7-2 in their first meeting in this season’s competition at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium,took an early lead through Kingsley Coman.

 

Spurs hit back soon after when Sessegnon showed great composure to bring a pass under control inside the area and rifle a powerful finish beyond Manuel Neuer.

 

Thomas Muller, who had come on as a first-half substitute after Coman picked up an injury, then struck just before the break when he tapped in after Alphonso Davies had hit the post.

 

Philippe Coutinho went close to scoring a spectacular third for the hosts but his fierce drive from distance bounced off the underside of the crossbar before being cleared.

 

The former Liverpool forward however got on the scoresheet in the second half when he curled into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

 

Tottenham return to English Premier League action this weekend when they travel to Wolves on Sunday.

 

Meanwhile, the draw for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League comes up next Monday.
