Just before kick-off, word filtered around the arena that unbeaten group leaders Sporting Lisbon had lost 4-1 against Marseille, meaning either side could go straight to the top with a win. Frankfurt dominated the early stages of the game, with Japanese midfielder Daichi Kamada pulling the strings up front while deputizing for the injured Mario Goetze.

Captain Sebastian Rode had the home side’s best chance of the opening half and was set up just to the right of the penalty spot in the 18th minute, only for Spurs midfielder Ivan Perisic to get his head on target.

As the half wore on, Tottenham looked more comfortable and seemed to shake off the funk left over from their disappointing 3-1 derby defeat to Arsenal at the weekend – their first of the Premier League campaign.

The visitors’ best chances of the opening half fell to Kane, but the England captain was unable to connect as he had a shot when presented with an open goal in the 39th minute. Kane’s usual strike partner Son took matters into his own hands just a minute later, but he blazed his shot over the bar.

Frankfurt roared out of the blocks after the break, with Dortmund loanee Ansgar Knauff attempting an acrobatic finish when one-on-one with Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Loris but going unrewarded in the early stages of the second stanza. Lindstrom had another golden chance to open the scoring in the 60th minute but smashed the ball over the bar despite some pressure from the Tottenham defence.

Frustration crept into the closing stages, Kane picking up a yellow card with five minutes remaining for a charge on Makoto Hasebe.

Both sides finished with a point and are now level in the group, with the second leg in London on 12 October looming ever more decisive.
