Tottenham Hotspur vs Real Madrid Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Real Madrid

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 1st November 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Tottenham are having a good season. They may have lost their last competitive match to Manchester United, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side have continued to perform beyond expectations.

They welcome a Real Madrid side that is in crisis and should be short on confidence following their loss to newly promoted Girona over the weekend.

The Lillywhites have also struggled for form since they defeated Liverpool 4-1.

They let a 2 goals lead slip in their Carabao Cup game against West Ham to lose 3-2 and lost 1-0 to Manchester United on Saturday.

They are still without the service of Harry Kane in this game as the England man has failed to recover from the Hamstring injury he suffered against Liverpool.

Their impressive play in the first leg of this game will give them confidence ahead of this game.

Real Madrid surrendered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 against newly promoted Girona on Sunday and that result has thrown their La Liga title defence into major doubt as they are now 8 points of the top spot occupied by Barcelona, although they have a game in hand.

They have performed better in the champions League as a pair of 3 goal wins saw them defeat APOEL (3-0) and Borussia Dortmund (3-1) before earning a frustrating draw at home to Tottenham in their last game.

Real Madrid have won 7 of their 8 away games this season scoring at least 2 goals in all but one of these games.

With Tottenham struggling at home they will be confident that they can take all three points here.
