UEFA Champions League 2018-19: 5 Matches in the Group Stage you can't afford to miss
#3 Tottenham Hotspur vs Barcelona - Wembley, 4th October, 12:30 AM [IST]
When you look at the Spurs’ roster, it is quite understandable why they didn't make a single signing this season. Their team is studded with stars! They have World Cup winning captain Hugo Lloris in goal and a strong defensive unit with Belgian pair Jan Vetronghen and Toby Aldeweireld and assist-man Kieran Trippier.
Their attack is led by Harry Kane and alongside him are Eriksen, Alli, Son and now Lucas Moura. It’s fair to say Spurs are a cohesive unit. Last season, when Barcelona drew Roma in the quarter-finals, everybody thought they had it easy. But lo and behold, Roma came back in the second leg to surprise everyone and beat Barcelona.
This year, Barca return with their fearsome attack of Messi, Coutinho, Dembele and Suarez with a mission. Hoping to avoid a slip like last year, the Spanish champions should play an enthralling match at Wembley, that should put up an atmosphere that’ll be deafening. Spurs will want to show that they can beat a European giant and will hope not to misstep like they did last year vs Juventus.
