Spanish Champions Real Madrid will continue the defence of their Champions League title when they take on the English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night.
Real Madrid had to overcome a stubborn Getafe 2-1 in the weekend that helped them cut the lead to bitter rivals Barcelona at the top of La Liga standings to five points. Their form in the Champions League has been near-flawless that has seen them top Group H standings with six points from two matches. They defeated APOEL Nicosia 3-0 at home and Borussia Dortmund 3-1 away from home. With the 2nd placed Tottenham having an identical record, they could go clear at the top with a win. They have scored 26 goals in their 12 games this season but they kept only three clean sheets in these matches. In Champions League, their last home defeat came in 2015 and they have won 13 of their 16 home games since then. When it comes to group stages, the last time they lost at home was in 2009.
Tottenham have had a quiet start to their Premier League but have since regrouped and rounded off their weekend with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth that has seen them stay third, five points off the top. That makes them unbeaten in nine matches in all competitions including a 3-1 win over Dortmund and a 3-0 win over APOEL Nicosia – mirroring the results of Real Madrid. However, their away record in the Champions League is very poor as they won only three games ever, drawing three and losing four including a 4-0 thrashing in 2011. They have scored in all but two of these ten away games but it is going to be a difficult task for them to come out with a win in this Real Madrid vs Tottenham fixture.

It will be very tough for Mauricio Pochettino’s men to stop the free-scoring Zinedine Zidane’s men who haven’t yet reached second gear. Backing the hosts to win looks a good pick while a bet on both sides to score is appearing interesting too.
