Paulo Gazzaniga saved from Jerome Boateng as Tottenham beat Audi Cup hosts Bayern Munich on penalties in Wednesday’s final.

Tottenham won the 2019 Audi Cup by beating Bayern Munich 6-5 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the 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.

Benjamin Pavard headed over at the other end, but Spurs took the lead in the 19th minute.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou burst clear of his marker on the left wing and delivered a low cross to the back post that Lamela slid in to meet.
