#Breaking: Tottenham Beat Bayern on penalties to Win Audi Cup

Tottenham won the 2019 Audi Cup by beating Bayern Munich 6-5 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the final, Jerome Boateng’s miss proving decisive.
 
Paulo Gazzaniga saved from Jerome Boateng as Tottenham beat Audi Cup hosts Bayern Munich on penalties in Wednesday’s final.

Tournament hosts Bayern named a youthful side for Wednesday’s game at the Allianz Arena, Niko Kovac’s side having thrashed Fenerbahce in the semi-finals a day earlier.

Spurs seemed set to follow their Real Madrid win with victory over the Bundesliga champions by going 2-0 up thanks to goals from Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen.

But Jann-Fiete Arp pulled one back for Bayern, who equalised in style thanks to a superb long-range hit from Alphonso Davies, only for Paulo Gazzaniga to deny Boateng in the shoot-out.

Manuel Neuer brilliantly thwarted Lucas Moura in the fifth minute as the Brazilian tried to turn home an excellent right-wing cross from Kyle Walker-Peters.
