Tottenham Hotspur will hold their third Champions League match under the lights of their new stadium this evening.

After beating Manchester City and losing the following match to Ajax, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be looking to return to winning ways.

A tough challenge awaits in the form of Bayern Munich, with former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry admitting that he is looking forward to stepping out onto the pitch of the state of the art stadium.

Spurs were held to a 2-2 draw in the opening match of the Group B campaign against Olympiacos in Athens, while Bayern comfortably swept aside Red Star Belgrade with a 3-0 victory in Munich.

A defeat for Spurs will realistically see them having to battle for second spot, while a victory for the North London side will certainly put the pressure back on the German giants.

Gnabry admits that Spurs will pose a tough threat having made it to the final of last season’s competition.

He told Focus: “It looks very modern and it will be a pleasure to play here.”

Gnabry added: “A victory tomorrow would take us a big step in the right direction.

“It will not be easy tomorrow, we play against the CL finalists last season, have to work together and take our chances. We look forward to the game.”


This is a pivotal match if Spurs harbour any desire of finishing top in the group.  Anything less than three points will see us having to settle for second at best and face the risk of playing a group winner in the knockout stages.
