Despite their absentees, the English side took the lead on 13 minutes through a beautiful Lucas Moura free kick, which found the net against the run of play.

However, nine minutes later the La Liga side were level.

Juanpe headed home the equaliser after a free-kick rebounded off the post. His side were ahead before half time as a low cross from the right was slotted into the Tottenham net by Anthony Lozano.

Within the first 16 minutes of the second period, the game was finished.

Portu bagged the third while Aleix Garcia eventually smashed home the fourth after something of a scramble.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are yet to make a signing this summer and start their Premier League campaign at Newcastle on Saturday, the first lunchtime kick off of the new season.
