However, most eyes would be at Wembley Stadium, where Tottenham hope to pile more pressure on Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid side.

Real Madrid has come under scrutiny in Spain following their shock 2-1 defeat to Girona in the League.

Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino is very confident that striker Harry Kane would be fit to feature during the match.
