Real Madrid vs Tottenham Hotspur 18/10/17
Something’s to give as Real Madrid host Tottenham in the Spanish capital. Both teams are on a perfect two wins out of two so far, have scored six each and conceded once. It is also a reunion for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, who go up against their former team. Modric left for Madrid in 2012, and was joined by Bale a year later in what was a world record transfer fee then.
Madrid have history on their side having won three of the previous four games between the clubs, drawing the other. The most recent matchup was in the 2010/11 quarter-finals, which Madrid easily won 5-0 on aggregate. Tottenham have never scored against Madrid in 360 minutes of football.
Dele Alli won’t be available as he serves the final game of a three-match ban, while Jan Vertonghen is good to go after being suspended against APOEL.
