Tottenham Hotspur have only played one match so far at their new stadium, but tomorrow night they will take to the pitch to face Manchester City in the Champions League.

This is the very first European game under the lights at the ground for Tottenham, with both sides looking to book their place in the semi finals.

Spurs have never reached the semis of the competition, with their only other quarter final appearance coming back in 2011 under Harry Redknapp.

However, the opponent this time around is far more familiar than a rampant Real Madrid, as Spurs take part in the only all-English tie.

As the club fight to secure Champions League for next season by finishing in the top four, they also seek to continue their fantastic run in the competition itself.

They have already pulled off a sensational group stage come back, as well as destroyed Borussia Dortmund home and away, but can they go one step further?

Pochettino was asked if this was the biggest game of his life (Football London): “Yes, maybe as a coach, yes I think it’s going to be one of the most important games. For us, it’s a massive bonus for us to have the opportunity to be here today and play in the quarter-finals with all the circumstances. We are going to try to beat them. The objective is to be in the semi-final. We respect Manchester City a lot, we know very well it’s going to be tough.”
