Real Madrid vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Real Madrid vs Tottenham Hotspur 

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 17th October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Real Madrid famously became the first team to retain the Champions League trophy when they won it last season beating a previously watertight Juventus by 4-1 and they look like they want to win for another record breaking third consecutive time this season.

They have started this season’s competition well beating APOEL 3-0 at home before earning another three points from a 3-1 away win over Borussia Dortmund.

They are currently joint top of the league table with Tottenham and have a chance to go three points clear if they can win this game.

Real Madrid may be solid in attack but they are not the best side defensively as they kept just 3 cleans sheets so far this season.

Harry Kane could make them pay for any defensive sloppiness.

Tottenham have finally broken the curse of Wembley and with the help of Harry Kane have made a solid start to the new season.

Their narrow win over Bournemouth on Saturday was their first league win at their temporary home and that will have provided some relief as well as some boost to their morale when they travel to the Bernabeu for this game.

That win makes it 9 games unbeaten for them in all competitions but their away record in the Champions League shows they have managed to win just three times, drawn three and lost four of those ten games including a humiliating defeat at this venue in 2011.

Tottenham have scored in 8 of those ten away games and they will be looking to bag a couple of goals against a questionable Real defence.
