Very few Spurs fans are optimistic about progressing to the semi-finals of the Champions League after Tottenham were drawn against Manchester City in the quarter-final stage.
Given City’s recent form, it is probably the toughest draw Spurs could have gotten, especially considering that the second leg will be played at the Etihad.
If Tottenham are to have any chance of progressing, they have to beat City in the first leg which will be played at their new 62,062 capacity seater stadium.
However, now it looks as if Pep Guardiola’s men might have suffered a major blow ahead of the tie.
Leroy Sane had to be taken off during Germany’s game against Serbia after a being on the receiving end of a lunging challenge from Milan Pavkov.
Pavkov was sent off for the dangerous tackle, and Sane was seen limping after the full-time whistle. Germany boss Joachim Low has said after the game that Sane was lucky not to have broken his bone (Football.London), but it is unclear how long the wide man will be out for.
While Man City have players who can replace the German speedster, there is no doubt that losing the 23-year-old will be a big miss for Guardiola’s side, as he has been in sensational form in recent months.
