After two disappointing results for Tottenham Hotspur in the space of a week, attentions turn back to the Champions League for the visit of Real Madrid.

The match at Wembley sees the two remaining unbeaten sides in Group H meet once again, with both level on 7 points. A victory for either side would see them book their place in the next round of the competition.

Tottenham performed heroically during the 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabéu, but have since experienced defeats at the hands of West Ham and Manchester United.

Fitness doubts over Harry Kane have only compounded the misery over the past week, but on a positive note, he did return to training on Tuesday. Dele Alli is also available after serving his three match suspension.

If you were Mauricio Pochettino, what would your Spurs team be for the match against Real Madrid? Leave your team selections and comments below.

Here’s our team…

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. That would be the team I would pick too, good call The Spur !
    On current form I have no place for Dier, but that’s not to say he can be one of the subs.

  2. No, I'd have Dier. His best place is defensive midfield, and, alongside Dembele, he can spray the passes to the final third and flanks, as well as cover the back three, while Dembele can supply more space on the park by winning, holding and keeping the ball centrally. Winks is a fine young player but he's just played 3 games on the spin, and he should sub out for this one. Apart from that, I wouldn't argue against the team suggested here, being put out.
    Aurier has worried me since he came in, and I fear he'll be nowhere as near as good as Walker. Especially as he's at his peak, age wise, already.
    Rose is not yet ready to supplant Davies for most games (if he'll ever be again), while Son is an impact player only, against the best teams. Sissoko has improved but not enough to take anyone's place in the team against RM.
