The rough night began when Tomi Horvat skipped easily around Davinson Sanchez to curl a beautiful strike into the top corner with Spurs looking lethargic in the early stages.

Things took another dire turn for the visitors when Ryan Sessegnon picked up his second yellow card in just the 32nd minute, ending his comeback from injury early and leaving his side with a mountain to climb during an evening which should have been little more than a stroll in the park.

Antonio Conte rang the changes with four substitutions just before the hour mark and Spurs finally got level when Harry Kane drifted through to chip in the equaliser in the 72nd minute.

Tottenham did most of the attacking pressing late on but a winner evaded them and instead Mura charged up the field to score with the final kick of the game, Amadej Marosa’s effort deflecting past the stranded Pierluigi Gollini.
