ATHENS (Reuters) – Olympiakos Piraeus battled back from a two-goal deficit to earn a 2-2 home draw with last year’s runners-up Tottenham Hotspur in their Champions League Group B opener on Wednesday.

The hosts were stunned as Tottenham struck twice in four minutes midway through the opening half, first with Harry Kane’s penalty and then a stunner by Lucas Moura.

Daniel Podence halved the deficit shortly before halftime and Olympiakos were level after 54 minutes when Mathieu Valbuena beat fellow Frenchman Hugo Lloris from the penalty spot.

Tottenham looked the more likely winner in the closing stages with Dele Alli and Erik Lamela squandering chances.
