Hugo Lloris tries to outdo his World Cup final gaffe with Barcelona shocker

All Philippe Coutinho had to do was smash it into an empty net

OK Hugo just don’t draw any attention to yourself in the first five minutes.

Mauricio Pochettino will have probably said something along those lines to his goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris before tonight’s game.

Especially after he’s been in the news for drink driving of late.

Just keep your head down, trust your defenders and be confident with anything coming your way.

Unfortunately Lloris had ideas of his own.

With the game just two minutes old, Lionel Messi spread the ball out to Jordi Alba in space down the left.

The next second Lloris was making a wild Jens Lehmann-style run out to the edge of his box to somehow close Alba down.

It did not end well.

In the above picture the Spurs backline are in all sorts of bother but Kieran Trippier must have been as surprised as anyone to see Lloris rushing off his line to try to collect the ball from here.

As the pictures show, Alba had all the composure in the world to square it to Coutinho for the Brazilian to thunder it into the empty net.

This is not the first time in the last few months that Lloris has made a very high profile mistake (and no we’re not talking about the drink driving).

The last match he played of this magnitude was the World Cup final against Croatia and can you remember his gaffe then?

Yes France had already scored four but it won’t fill Pochettino with confidence knowing his star goalkeeper has a huge mistake in him during crunch games.

Yeah… stick to the long ball next time Hugo
