One of the biggest matches of this European Tuesday will take place at Santiago Bernabéu, with Real Madrid and Tottenham facing off on a 3rd round match of this group H.
Real Madrid has 2 wins in 2 matches, therefore they are leading this group H (with the same points as their opponents this Tuesday).
On the 1st round they didn’t have any trouble beating APOEL 3-0, while on the 2nd round they put together an excellent performance that ended on a 3-1 triumph in Dortmund.
This start of the season, and despite already having lifted a trophy, has had some slightly less positive moments, with Real Madrid showing more defensive flaws than usual.
On their first 9 official matches, they have conceded in 7 of them. The Welsh Gareth Bale, the wing back Carvajal and the midfielder Kovacic shouldn’t be within the set of Zidane’s options for this match.
Tottenham comes into this match sharing the leadership of group H with Real Madrid, thanks to a 3-0 win in Cyprus and a 3-1 home win over Dortmund.
Pochettino’s team has been playing well on this start of the season, having won 8 out of the 11 matches they have already played.
Real Madrid vs Tottenham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
They were able to score in all of those 11 matches, except on the match against Swansea, that finished with a 0-0 draw.
If on the Spanish side Cristiano already has 4 goals scored so far, on the Spurs’ side the English Harry Kane has already scored 5 goals in 2 matches, which means he is the top goal scorer of this competition at the moment.
For this trip to the Spanish capital, Dele Alli, Rose, Wanyama and Lamela won’t be available.
It is tough to imagine a Champions League match at the Bernabéu without any goals from Real, so, given the fact that they are in bad form defensively and the fact that they will face a team with excellent arguments.
I believe that Both teams scoring is the natural thing to happen.
