FT: Real Madrid 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur.
What a result, what a performance. And we probably should've won. So proud of the team, we came to the Bernabeu against Real Madrid, the champions of Europe two years running, and didn't look out of place. We defended fantastically and if it wasn't for a penalty and us not taking our chances we would've won. Great point, I'm so happy. COYS⚪️🔵 #THFC
The team selection has surprised everyone, but it must mean Poch has something special rolled up his sleeve. Llorente hasn't started a game all season for us and now he does away to the best team in the world? Must mean something... Looking at Real Madrid's team it seems unstoppable, but nothing is impossible. It's going to be extremely hard but we have to believe. We have absolutely nothing to lose tonight. Huge opportunity to make a real statement against the worlds best. I believe. COYS⚪️🔵 #THFC
@zidane on Tottenham: "We are playing against a very good team and that is good for us, it encourages us to play a good match. Tottenham has always been a great club, but they are constantly improving and they have a great coach. It will be a good game between two strong teams. It will be the group final." #THFC
It's match-day! It's the big one, we face @realmadrid in the Champions League at the Bernabeu.
What are your score predictions for this game? 👇 I don't want to be unrealistic and say we are going to win because it's unlikely, but I honestly believe that if we play to our very best and take our chances we can win tonight. I'm going for a 1-1 draw and I will take that all day.
I've been looking forward to this game for weeks, I cannot wait. We are ready, I believe! COYS⚪️🔵 #THFC
Last time out, 6 years ago, our opponents tomorrow night Real Madrid ended our amazing Champions League story, now it's our time to end there's.
AC Milan at the San Siro, Inter Milan at the Lane. We've done it before, so we can do it again. COYS⚪️🔵 #THFC
If Mousa Dembele is fit for the game tomorrow, he has to start. He is the key to our midfield along with Christian Eriksen of course. I honestly feel that he can control the middle in the game tomorrow if he plays. He's amazing and he will help us so much, in possession, defensively, going forward and to getting a result in Madrid. Hopefully he starts, it will give us a massive boost. 👊 #THFC @mousadembele
This is my predicted lineup for the game tomorrow. I have a feeling Poch will play Trippier left back as he said Danny Rose cannot start yet but he may be on the bench. If Dembele is fit then he has to play no question. He is our best midfielder and is vital to our team. The rest is unchanged apart from Aurier in at right back and Son in for the suspended Dele Alli who is serving his last game. Leave your thoughts below and if you would change anything👇 #THFC
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane says Tottenham striker Harry Kane is a complete player.
________________________________________________________"I don't know what will happen in the future, but in the present, he [Kane] is a very important player and key player for Tottenham. He is very good at everything, but what he does well is that he always goes towards the goal and his speed is very good. He is a complete player. He didn't seem to be [when he was younger], but in the end, that is what he is. But Tottenham is not just Kane -- it is a very good team and we are going to prepare very well." #THFC
Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld believes the team can beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu tomorrow.
Alderweireld: “We have a good team and we can beat them. That is not arrogance. It’s just confidence in our own game. When I was at Atletico, we believed we could hurt them (Real Madrid), and we have that belief at Tottenham too.” #THFC
Jan Vertonghen was superb yesterday and he may have to play left-back again on Tuesday if Ben Davies is out. It's between him and Son for that LWB role otherwise we will have to change formation and the team. Could be a problem for us if Davies isn't fit, let's pray he is. #THFC#COYS
Poch said in his post match press conference today that @bendavies33 is a doubt for the game on Tuesday against Real Madrid due to illness and that it's very unlikely he will play.
Also, he said @gknkoudou has suffered a blow to his head and felt a bit of dizziness after the game. He said hopefully he will be okay to train tomorrow though.
Davies is a massive loss for us, he's been outstanding recently and we really needed him for Tuesday. This means Vertonghen may have to play in his role or Son. Nkoudou may be needed also but we might have to change formation too to a 4-2-3-1. We will wait and see, let's pray Davies is fit for Madrid. #THFC
