Premier League hot-shots Tottenham Hotspur are in a bit of a crisis.
Back-to-back defeats to West Ham in the Carabao Cup and to Manchester United in the high-profile Premier League clash this last weekend have sounded the alarm bells for Mauricio Pochettino.
The young tactician will have no time to rest as he is standing in front of yet another big challenge during the week. Locked on points and with the same goal difference, Tottenham and Real Madrid are playing it out for the first place in Group H where APOEL and Dortmund have virtually no chance of progressing through.
The forthcoming match is more than just playing for points as it’s a chance to claim bragging rights against the reigning European champions who travel to England without several first-team members including former Spurs favourite Gareth Bale.
Zinedine Zidane’s men have plenty of squad depth regardless and are expected to do their best to neutralize the attacking threat coming from the Tottenham end. The Spaniards won three of the last four meetings with Spurs and we believe that’s exactly how this forthcoming fixture will pan out as well.
Los Blancos are angry for letting lowly Girona claw back from behind for a 2-1 victory on Sunday and will be determined to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
Betfair, Sun Bets, Paddy Power and Betfred all have Spanish champions at valuable 11/10 to win in London.
