Spurs’ Harry Kane and Delle Alli can earn themselves a favour
It’s difficult to enter into Real Madrid’s den and snatch a point, but Tottenham Hotspur will have to do it. Santiago Bernabeu’s crowd never let their team down and they used to be on their feet till final whistle is blown. It helps Los Blancos to fight till the end and teach every visitor a lesson, “it was never over”.
Tottenham Hotspur will visit Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night and they’ll have to prove their worth on European soil. Spurs’ have their golden generation of footballers and yet they need to win a trophy. In absence of trophy they may lose their some quality talents next season and in that case Spurs at least need to capitalize on their outgoing players.
Madrid visit gives that opportunity to the North Londoners. Merengues have a very keen eye on their talented squad. Harry Kane and Dele Alli may be their latest victim to be lured away from the Spurs and it’s perfect time for North Londoners to increase their quality players’ base price.
You go to Santiago Bernabeu and give a difficult time to the hosts and you earn yourself a favour. Your players are already on their watch list and one epic performance from them will force Madrid giants to spend heavily to bring those players to Santiago Bernabeu at permanent basis.
Tottenham Hotspurs’ board members sitting in Santiago Bernabeu’s royal boxes must be hoping to see a quality performance from individuals to cash in. Mauricio Pochettino may not see it that way, but he’ll still be looking for a victory at Santiago Bernabeu.
Disappointedly Dele Alli won’t be able to play at Santiago Bernabeu due to his suspension, but Harry Kane will definitely have an eye on Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez’s royal box. Everyone loves coming to Madrid and play for Real Madrid and it’s difficult to say no to them.
“Nobody says no to Real Madrid”. Luka Modric and Gareth Bale switched to Real from Spurs in 2012 and 2013 respectively. 2018 may be Kane and Alli’s time. Although, current generation of Spurs’ players have been very faithful to the club signing new deals but you never know the future in football. All credit goes to Spurs’ boss Pochettino to convince his players to stay at Spurs boasting about clubs’ grand plans, but long term projects never convince a player due to his short career at top level.
It creates a loophole and best talents always lured away with hefty sum promises. Real Madrid is very good in it and they love the talent coming from North London club. Tottenham Hotspur may not be able to stop Real Madrid from luring their talents, but at least they can increase their quality players’ base price to help them in negotiations.
Both Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur share the same point on group H points table. They have six points from their last two victories and they are even term, this fixture including home and away will decide the group winner and it will definitely give an edge going into the round of 16. Spurs couldn’t expect more topping the table in a group consisting of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Apoel FC and themselves.
