It has been good news of late for Tottenham fans in the Champions League, as their club managed to put one foot into the quarter finals of the competition last week.

Spurs beat German League leaders Borussia Dortmund 3-0 at Wembley to take a commanding lead into the second leg.

This came after Tottenham pulled off one of the most remarkable come backs in the group stages, after taking just one point from their first three matches.

Spurs then beat Inter Milan, PSV, and took a point from Barca at the Nou Camp to qualify second in the group.

However, some bad news this week, as major doubts have been thrown over whether the new stadium will be able to host the quarter final home leg if Spurs reach that point.

A report by The Telegraph claims that it is unlikely Spurs will be allowed to open their new stadium with a high profile game such as the Champions League quarter final.

With the first leg (if Spurs are drawn to play first) to be held on April 9-10, Tottenham would need to open the new stadium against Brighton on April 6 in order to host the Champions League too.

However, FA Cup rescheduling may put a stop to this if Brighton make it to the semis of the cup.
