Tottenham earned a surprise 1-1 draw in their Champions League Group H match on Tuesday, largely thanks to an inspired performance from keeper Hugo Lloris.
It wasn’t all one way traffic at the Bernabeu though, as Madrid’s Keylor Navas also produced several top-drawer saves to thwart Harry Kane.
Still, it was left to Lloris to make the save of the night, and perhaps the season, as he somehow managed to keep out Karim Benzema’s point-blank header with his foot.

The save certainly impressed his manager.
And quite a few others.

Lloris has just made the best save I have ever seen in my life with my own eyes

Although some thought that Benzema should have done better!
Is that an amazing Lloris save or trash finishing from Benzema?

Fans when Lloris saves Benzema's header; Benzema is trash, bin him.
Fans when Lloris saves Ronaldo's shot: What a save, unlucky Ronaldo.
