England forward Harry Kane has scored eight goals in eight games for club and country this seasonTottenham threw away a two-goal lead as last season's Champions League finalists were forced to settle for a point against Olympiakos in Greece.Two goals in four first-half minutes put Spurs in control, with Harry Kane opening the scoring from the penalty spot before Lucas Moura's scorching 20-yard finish.Yet Mauricio Pochettino's side conceded shortly before half-time through impressive Portuguese winger Daniel Podence's quality finish.
That lifted the passionate home crowd and Olympiakos equalised from the game's second penalty, former France forward Mathieu Valbuena beating Hugo Lloris, the current Les Bleus captain, from the spot. The result means both of last season's Champions League finalists have failed to win their opening group games, after holders Liverpool were beaten 2-0 by Napoli in Italy on Tuesday.

Key questions as 2019-20 Champions League campaign gets under way
Sloppy Spurs fail to hang on again
Pochettino's side showed Herculean spirit to go all the way to the final last season yet were far from their best as they made a shaky return to the competition in the port city of Piraeus. Having allowed a 2-0 lead to slip against Arsenal in the Premier League on 1 September, this was the second time in three games they been left to reflect on what might have been.With Bayern Munich and the unpredictable Red Star Belgrade also in Group B, Pochettino will hope this result does not come back to haunt his side.Kane won the penalty which led to him breaking the deadlock, the Spurs striker clearly tripped by Tunisia defender Yassine Meriah. Then Moura produced an emphatic finish after Ben Davies marked his return by winning back possession and laying on the pass for the Brazil winger.On a night of missed opportunities, Kane could have had a hat-trick.Yet, on two separate occasions, Dele Alli - making his first start of the season - and substitute Erik Lamela decided to go for glory instead of choosing the easier option of squaring to Kane to score.
Away way trouble for Spurs
Having failed to win any of their first three group games last season, Tottenham know a point in Greece could yet prove critical.Yet they have won just five of their 17 away games this calendar year, including an FA Cup tie at then-League Two club Tranmere Rovers.Since winning 2-1 at Fulham in the league on 20 January, Spurs have managed just two victories on the road - both in Europe, against Borussia Dortmund and Ajax.It is something of a worry for Pochettino, who heads straight back to England with his squad to prepare for a Saturday lunchtime game at Leicester City.It could have been worse. When the game was goalless and during a slow start by the visitors, Olympiakos hit the post through Miguel Angel Guerrero.That prompted Pochettino to leap out of his seat and make it known from the sidelines that he was not happy by his side's performance.His actions had some impact as Spurs raced into a 2-0 lead before being pegged back on a deeply frustrating night.
