Spurs at ‘home’ to Real Madrid it is folks. Wembley Stadium. The Champions League. Will Geoff Shreeves plus one other Sky monkey helicopter into the stadium, I wonder? If they do, I beseech thee, thank of the pilot and his family. The emergency service personnel who would have to shovel it all up. Do not let ill thought cloud your minds.
Los Blancos land as favourites. We’re 11/5 and the other lot 11/10. The draw is 11/4.
Real Madrid’s form is monster. They are unbeaten in their last 30 Champions League group games (W22 D8), their last defeat dating back to October 2012 away against Dortmund.
The prices generally don’t allow for retirement unless you look very hard. I love Spurs to win by 1 goal, which 4/1, by 2 goals is 9/1.
For those looking for an extra morsel of doom n’ gloom, Spurs have never won at home in European competition versus Spanish opposition.
Good job we’re playing at Wembley then, eh?!
