Brentford and Tottenham Play to entertaining 2–2 Draw in First Game Without Kane

Brentford and Tottenham Play to entertaining 2-2 Draw _

In their first match after Har­ry Kane absence, Tot­ten­ham bat­tled Brent­ford to an event­ful 2–2 draw. Both teams showed attack­ing flair but lacked fin­ish­ing qual­i­ty in the sec­ond half.

Cris­t­ian Romero head­ed Tot­ten­ham ahead in the open­ing min­utes from James Mad­dis­on’s free kick. How­ev­er, Romero suf­fered a head injury and was replaced by Davin­son Sanchez.

Brent­ford equal­ized from the penal­ty spot after Son was ruled to have tripped Math­ias Jensen. Yoane Wis­sa put the hosts ahead through a deflect­ed strike before Emer­son Roy­al lev­eled in first-half stop­page time.

The fiery first half yield­ed four goals and two injuries, as Jensen limped off for Brent­ford. The pace slowed after the break as chances grew fewer.

Vic­ario and Flekken made saves to deny Son and Vitaly Janelt, respec­tive­ly, as attacks failed to break the dead­lock. Brent­ford appealed for a late penal­ty when Kevin Schade went down but VAR did not intervene.

Richarli­son squan­dered a good chance for the win when he took too long to shoot and was blocked. Both man­agers will aim to sharp­en attack­ing qual­i­ty while defend­ing leads more solidly.

While Kane’s role up front for Tot­ten­ham remains unfilled, this result on the road shows they can cre­ate chances with­out him. Brent­ford proved a tough oppo­nent but missed chances to seize full advan­tage of Kane’s absence.

The enter­tain­ing 2–2 draw high­light­ed room for improve­ment on both sides as they search for con­sis­ten­cy with­out star play­ers in key positions.
