3-4-2-1: If Pochettino fields this Spurs XI, Real Madrid are getting smashed

Tottenham fans in the Tavern are in fine voice as they are confident in continuing their unbeaten start in Europe, especially after getting their first win at Wembley over Bournemouth on Saturday. Finally, for our north London locals, they’ve been able to celebrate a Premier League win there. 

Spurs have enjoyed their football recently as they look to be back in fine form and winnings ways. After a solid 7 goals being scored in their last 2 games and conceding none it looks as if this Spurs side are starting to build up momentum and a head of steam, getting back into gear. Well, their next game is certainly a big one.

After a 4-0 win away at Apoel, the London side are looking to carry their momentum into the upcoming game against European giants Real Madrid, which certainly won’t be easy. The Spanish side are also unbeaten to start off the campaign so a clash of two titans it will be. With Zinedine Zidane having won two Champions League titles on the bounce, Los Blancos certainly are quite the force.

Having had lots to ponder over the international break it’s now down to Pochettino to build on their win against Bournemouth ahead of their trip to Madrid, needing to prove his Spurs side aren’t only in the Champions League to make up the numbers.

So with a top seed finish at stake, can Pochettino and his men overcome arguably the world’s best, Ronaldo and co? Luckily for them, Gareth Bale looks like missing out, though Real certainly do have a variety of attacking options.

Here’s a look at the side that Pochettino should list to face the Spanish giants…
