UEFA Champions League 2017/18
Date: Tuesday, 17th October 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).
Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur are locked on six points when the ball rolls at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night.
Madrid defeated APOEL 3-0 on matchday 1 before bagging a big win in Germany against Borussia Dortmund in the last round by a 3-1 margin.
Spurs on the other hand, started positively with a 3-1 win against Spurs before putting 3 goals past APEOL in Cyprus on matchday 2.
Form-wise, Zidane’s team has been a big shaky at time and dropped a fair share of points at home. They drew the likes of Levante and Valencia before losing to Real Betis. Their home stats in all competitions this season is 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss from 6 games.
On the other hand, Spurs yet struggle to get their best out at Wembley. But, they are lethal while on the road. Pochettino’s men won their 5 away matches in all competitions this season scoring 15 goals as against 2 conceded.
Real Madrid vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
The Blancos are unbeaten in the four head-to-head meetings against Tottenham so far, with wins in three of them.
Their most recent meeting was in Tottenham’s first Champions League campaign in 2010/11 season. Madrid knocked Spurs out of the quarter finals with a 5-0 aggregate win – 4-0 at Bernabeu and 1-0 at White Hart Lane. Ronaldo scored a goal each in either legs.
Madrid’s record against English Premier League sides is 15 wins, 10 draws and 10 losses from 35 matches. The record at Bernabeu is quite strong with 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses from 10 matches.
Spurs have a terrible record against Spanish sides with 1 win coming from 10 games, drawn 3 and lost 6. The lone win came in the 1963 edition of the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup final in a neutral venue against Atletico Madrid. They are win-less in both home and away games against La Liga opposition.
Real Madrid vs Tottenham: Prediction
Madrid’s domestic form this season is nothing but shaky. But Zidane often gets his team highly charged up while going against quality oppositions. They had already defeated the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona over two legs. They are most likely to repeat the feat on Tuesday evening as well.
