Tottenham and Real Madrid lock horns at Wembley in UEFA Champions League this evening.
Having drawn 1-1 at the Bernabéu on matchday three, the pair remain level on points at the top of Group H and, crucially, hold a six-point advantage over Borussia Dortmund and Apoel, meaning either would confirm a top-two finish with three points in north London.
Tottenham have never beaten Madrid, having lost three of the previous five games between the clubs, drawing the other two.
Raphaël Varane’s own goal on matchday three is the only one Tottenham have scored against Madrid in 450 minutes of football.
Tottenham’s first UEFA Champions League campaign, in 2010/11, was ended by Madrid. The Spanish side were 4-0 winners at home in the quarter-final first leg, thanks to goals from future Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor (4,57) and one each from Ángel Di María (72) and Cristiano Ronaldo (87).
Tottenham played the majority of the match with ten men after Peter Crouch collected a second yellow card in the 15th minute.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm. Kick-off 7.45pm.
