Rodrigo Bentancur scored a brace to help Tottenham produce one of the high-scoring football scores of the weekend in the. In a thrilling game, Jesse Marsch’s squad had a three-goal lead three times, but Spurs rallied against their grueling fixture schedule to steal the victory. With his fourth goal in four games, Crysencio Summerville gave the game the start it needed in the first ten minutes, but Harry Kane quickly equalized. After that, Rodrigo gave Leeds the lead back, and Ben Davies scored just after the half. With 14 minutes remaining, Leeds made a comeback and believed they had won when Rodrigo’s precise finish found the far corner.
Bentancur, who scored the game-winning goal against Bournemouth two weeks ago, was on hand to strike twice in a dizzying two minutes to send Spurs third and into the World Cup break on a high note, but they still had one last push in them. Leeds, who in the dying minutes had Tyler Adams dismissed for receiving a second card, had no response.
Leeds played as expected in the opening stages with good energy and spark, and for the eighth time in succession, Spurs gave up the opening goal when Summerville scampered behind Eric Dier and finished past Hugo Lloris. However, the Spurs were always a threat, particularly with the return of Dejan Kulusevski, and it was Kane who expertly slammed in the equalizer on his 350th appearance for the team. Brenden Aaronson, a driving force in front of Rodrigo, kept Marsch’s team moving forward at every chance. They took the lead into halftime when Rodrigo half-volleyed a goal through Lloris after a recycled corner fell to him.
Bentancur tied the score at 3-3 by scoring on a deflection off Luke Ayling and then Spurs immediately reverted to attacking after the opening kick. Kulusevski’s outstanding run disorganized Leeds’ defenders, and he found the right pass for Bentancur to slip home from close range. Completed comeback Leeds was stunned.
