Referee: Antonio Mateu Lahoz
This evening Spurs face CSKA Moscow in their second group game of this seasons UEFA Champions League, the Lillywhites will be desperate to avoid defeat following their defeat to Monaco in their first group game. Tonight’s game is a massive game for Spurs as Mauricio Pochettino’s side really can not afford to lose but Pochettino’s team have a tough task ahead of them. CSKA’s side are arguably the best in Russia, they are a well set up side with an good defence and an excellent midfield, with the likes of Alan Dzagoev and Roman Eremenko players to look out for. Meanwhile CSKA !Moscow 6 foot eight inches strikers Lacina Traoré will be a constant goal threat. Tonight’s match will undoubtedly will be an incredibly tough game but we are capable of getting a victory however, Spurs will have to be on the top their game if they are break down CSKA’s solid defence, but I do believe that the lads have the quality to win tonight.
