Spurs v Bayer Leverkusen: (match preview)
Venue: Wembley stadium
Date: Wednesday 2nd November 19:45pm
Live: BT Sport 2
Referee: Jonas Eriksson (SWE)
Head2Heads: 0-0, 1-0 Spurs.
Despite having a good start to the season Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side are without a win in five matches, and the Lillywhites will be desperate to win against Bayer Leverkusen in tonights important Champions league match. Leverkusen were a tough side to play against two weeks ago at the Bay arena and the German clubs attacking style of play caused us many problems. Tonight’s big game comes just four days before the north London Derby but our lads can defeat Leverkusen tonight without a shadow of a doubt and with an electric atmosphere the fans can spur the lads on to a victory tonight in front of a sea of Lillywhite. Leverkusen have a fantastic attack but I reckon we can find our way past their defence and grab a vital three points. COYS
Picture below, Kevin Schmidt’s side training in London’s Regent’s Park earlier today.
Team news: Despite returning to full training yesterday Harry Kane won’t feature tonight, neither will Toby Alderweireld who remains injured. Meanwhile Erik Lamela could also miss tonight’s match after picking up a small hip injury in training.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lloris, Trippier, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Dembele, Nkoudou, Alli, Son, Janssen.
One to watch: Bayer Leverkusen striker Javier Hernandez.
