Real Madrid v Totttenham Hotspur meet on Tuesday (19:45, UK Time) in the third week of the Champions League group stage. Both teams won their two last matches in this competition, so they’re fighting to get the first place in this difficult group.
Real Madrid v Tottenham Preview
Real Madrid won against Getafe (1-2) this Saturday in a very tough derby. Karim Benzema returned to the line-up with his first goal in La Liga, whereas Cristiano Ronaldo also found the net for the very first time in this competition this year. Both should be in the attacking line with Isco, who had some rest during the weekend. Gareth Bale and Mateo Kovacic are the two injury concerns for this game because Keylor Navas should be back to defend the goal.
Tottenham also got the three points in the Premier League after beating (1-0) Bournemouth with a goal scored by Erikssen. This is their first victory at home in the Premier League this season, but in the Champions League they were able to beat Borussia Dortmund, so they have six points, fighting with Real Madrid for the first spot. Wanyama and Lamela are injured, whereas Alli is suspended.

Tottenham Hotspur is a very tough rival, especially away this season. However, the Champions League is not their competition.

However, we expect a lot of goals here, with Los Blancos also conceding goals.
