After taking office at Tottenham Hotspur, manager Conte, who had been undefeated in 2 wins, 1 draw, suffered his first unexpected defeat in 4 matches.
It was Mura, the home team, who led the early game. Mura threatened Tottenham by creating an efficient counterattack scene even with a small number of strikers.
Tommy Horbart made a goal-like scene with a bold mid-range shot in the 9th minute, and it came to fruition right away in the 11th minute. Horbart did not miss the moment when Davinson Sanchez lost his balance and fell, and opened the door to Tottenham with an exquisite kick.
Tottenham suffered a blow and counterattacked, but the pass was not accurate in the attacking area, so they did not use their strength. In the 14th minute of the first half, Brian Hill’s shot went high. In the 24th minute of the first half, Hill’s pass went to Kane, but the strength and weakness did not match. Ali’s penetration pass in the 30th minute was too long for Kane to catch.
To make matters worse, Tottenham were sent off after Ryan Sessegnon received a second yellow card in the 32nd minute of the first half.
Then, in the 37th minute of the first half, Kane’s turning shot, who caught the ball with great effort, slightly missed the goal, and Nick Rorbeck’s shot of Mura skipped the post, and the first half ended with Mura’s lead by one goal without scoring an additional goal.

In the 13th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min broke through about 20m from the left flank, pierced the Mura defense and fired a powerful shot. In the 14th minute of the second half, Heung-Min Son’s corner kick was headed by Kane, but he headed straight for the goalkeeper.
Tottenham, who had a good flow, eventually equalized. In the 27th minute of the second half, Kane, who turned well after receiving a pass from Moura, scored with a chip shot in a situation where there was no angle.
Afterwards, Tottenham Hotspur, led by Kane and Son Heung-min, tried to come back, but lacked a back heart due to the absence of one.
Rather, Mura scored an additional goal with just one counter-attack at the end of the second half. Mura scored with a shot by Amademi Marosa in the 94th minute of the second half, ending the game 2-1.
In the end, Tottenham suffered a shock defeat, unable to overcome their numerical inferiority and early goals.
