Real Madrid gets the better of the Spurs as Cristiano Ronaldo outscores Harry Kane. Real Madrid 2, Tottenham 1.
Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday hoping a result against European champions Real Madrid will mean they retain at least a share of the lead in Group H.
Theirs is the only pool in which two teams sit level on six points after each winning their first two matches of the campaign, meaning the points on offer on Matchday 3 will have a tremendous hand in deciding the group winner.
As if Real and Spurs weren’t close enough after two games, the Group H joint leaders are also identical in goals scored and conceded after beating pool rivals Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia 3-1 and 3-0, respectively.
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino left the helm of former club Espanyol before Real counterpart Zinedine Zidane rose into the continent’s managerial hierarchy, and he’ll hope seniority has a part to play on Tuesday.
Read on for all the necessary viewing details and live-stream information to tune into Tuesday’s clash, complete with the latest team news.
Los Blancos had a number of key faces missing from Saturday’s 2-1 win at Getafe for various reasons, but Wales winger Gareth Bale will be noted as the key absence after suffering a recurrence of his calf injury last month.
Former Spurs star Luka Modric will be fit to face his old club, but Bale’s situation is more bleak, and Zidane addressed the media on Friday, when he was unable to give a reliable estimate on the Welshman’s return, per Reuters (h/t Eurosport UK):
“I can’t say when he’ll be back, but he’s better, I can’t say if he’ll return in a week or 10 days, we’ll have to see.
“He’s getting better every day. He had two problems, one in Dortmund when he only seemed a bit worn out, and then he had a different problem with his calf. Now we have to take it easy with him and be patient.”
