How Brighton could help Spurs beat City in the Champions League

Tottenham Hotspur finally found out their Champions League quarter final opponents yesterday, with an all English tie on the cards for April.

Spurs were drawn against Manchester City for the next round of the competition, with the North London clubs the underdogs to go through to the semis.

Tottenham are now set to play the Manchester side three times in the space of 10 days next month.

Fans may be surprised to hear that Brighton could help Spurs’ cause if they hope to beat Manchester City over two legs.

Brighton are currently down to play Spurs in the League on Sunday 7th April, however this date is set to change no matter what happens.

This is because Brighton are also still in the FA Cup, and face Millwall in the next round. If they progress, Spurs’ game in hand against Crystal Palace will be played on the 3rd of April.

Tottenham would then play Brighton at a later date. If Brighton lose to Millwall, they will play Tottenham on the Saturday instead of the Sunday.

As Man City will likely still be in the FA Cup themselves, with a date against Swansea, a Brighton win would see Spurs have a chunk of extra time to prepare for the Champions League quarters compared to their opponents.

Spurs face City at the new stadium on April 9.
