Tottenham take a big step closer to qualifying for the Champions League round of 16 when they defeat Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt at home tonight. The two sides played a lackluster 0-0 draw last Tuesday, leaving them both down by four points from three games, and whoever wins tonight will be in pole position to exit the group stage.
Spurs bounced back from their winning streak at the weekend with a 1-0 win over Brighton in the Premier League, Harry Kane scoring the winner midway through the first half. He will look to further improve his record tonight and hopefully give Tottenham their second Champions League win of the season.
Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt decided to rest players for their Bundesliga match against VFL Bochum last Saturday, conceding three late goals to suffer a shock defeat in their domestic league. That puts pressure on Oliver Glasner’s side, who know they need to improve to pose a bigger threat to a Spurs side with selection and structure issues ahead of tonight’s encounter.
