SCORERS: Alli(27'56') Erisken(65') C. Ronaldo
VENUE: Wembley
REFEREE: Cüneyt Çakir
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is
"very confident" striker Harry Kane will be fit
to face Real Madrid in the Champions
League on Wednesday.
Kane has scored 13 goals in 12 games for
Spurs this season but missed Saturday's 1-0
defeat by Manchester United with a
hamstring problem.
He took part in training on Tuesday and
could play at Wembley.
"He's on the list. Maybe it's possible for him
to play but I don't want to say 100%," said
Spurs would qualify for the knockout stages
of the Champions League with a win - as
would their opponents Real.
The hosts are top of Champions League
Group H, above the defending champions
on goal difference. Both sides are six points
clear of Borussia Dortmund and Apoel
Spurs winger Erik Lamela is available after
just over a year out with a hip problem, but
midfielder Victor Wanyama is still out with a
knee problem.
Real forward Gareth Bale will miss the game
against his old club after failing to recover
from a calf injury. First-choice keeper Keylor
Navas and centre-back Raphael Varane
remain injured.
Real manager Zinedine Zidane is facing
criticism in Spain after a shock 2-1 defeat at
La Liga minnows Girona on Sunday.
They are eight points behind leaders
Barcelona after losing two and drawing two
of their opening 10 games and Zidane said:
"Perhaps some people might think that after
a defeat we are down in the dumps but
that's not the case."
"We all know how football works,
sometimes you are going to lose matches
and it's obviously frustrating.
"After a defeat people aren't happy but in
some ways I like this. I like that we have a
big game coming up. I feel I work my best
in these situations."
Real are unbeaten against Spurs in
European competition. They have faced each
other five times previously, with Real
winning three of them.
Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last 30
Champions League group games (W22 D8) -
their last defeat was in October 2012 away
against Borussia Dortmund.
They have failed to score only once in their
last 53 Champions League group games
(0-0 at Paris St-Germain, October 2015).
Having previously gone four home
Champions League games without a win
(D1 L3), Spurs have won their last two.
Tottenham Hotspur have never won at
home in European competition against
Spanish opposition (D2 L3).
No other team has registered more
attempts on the counter-attack than Spurs
this season in the Champions League (5 -
fast break); scoring with one of those
Each of the 27 times English clubs have had
seven or more points after three Champions
League match days they have progressed to
the last 16 (since the current format was
introduced in 2003-04).
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored once in each
of his three previous Champions League
games against Tottenham.
Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo have both
scored more goals than anyone else in the
competition this season (five).
