The drama has started early in Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League quarterfinal tie with Manchester City. Just 10 minutes in, the visitors were awarded a controversial penalty after a VAR review ruled that Danny Rose blocked a shot with his hand.

Up stepped Sergio Aguero, one of the most prolific goal scorers in Premier League history, but he couldn’t get his attempt past Hugo Lloris. The Frenchman made a very good save to keep the match scoreless early on.

We all knew this match-up had all the makings of a classic. So far, it’s living up to the hype. Buckle up. It’s going to be a wild ride.
