Tottenham Hotspur host PSV in matchday 4 of European Champions League on Tuesday 6th November, 8:00pm at Wembley Stadium.
Spurs are winless in five CL matches (D2 L3), our longest ever winless run in a major European competition.
Group B currently looks like this:
Which effectively requires Spurs to have a talent transplant in order to continue meaningfully in the competition.
3rd place redirects us towards the insanity of the Europa League.
I’d prefer 4th spot and an opportunity to regroup against Crystal Palace, because I’m a rational person.
If you wish to invent scenarios whereby we are ‘still very much in this’, be my guest – on someone else’s wall.
Poch is not phased by an early exit, telling the BBC: “When you are competitive at that level, if you are not good enough, if you are not clinical, or defend poorly like in the last minute in the Inter Milan game… If you don’t deserve to go, it’s disappointing but not embarrassing.”
OUR XI: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Eriksen, Dele, Lucas, Son, Kane (C).
