Pochettino confirms failed Spurs approach for top Real Madrid talent

Pochettino confirms failed Spurs approach for top Real Madrid talent

Both Dortmund and APOEL are seeking their first points in the group after successive defeats in what is the first encounter between the two clubs.

Levy has become well known for his awkward negotiating which particularly riled Sir Alex Ferguson. 'What he does is always towards the goal, he attacks space at speed.

We are a team that is still under construction.

Winks is among the contenders to feature in central midfield, having played a full part in each of Tottenham's last three games either side of the international break, but he acknowledges that there is now serious competition for places.

Tottenham arrived looking for a good performance to show it can compete against the best in Europe.

"This is the first final in this group", Zidane said.

Kane's 13-goal haul in September matched the best ever goalscoring month by Messi or Ronaldo.

Pep Guardiola's Premier League pace-setters lock horns with Serie A front-runners Napoli as Manchester City attempt to make it three wins from three in the section. At this stage last season they had scored 22 league goals compared to just 15 so far this year.

Real started their usual charm offensive with a player they want to sign, that has been seen many times, with Zidane yesterday saying, "I don't know what will happen in the future".

Real have not lost a group stage match in the Champions League for a record 29 games, a run stretching back five years, and have not been beaten at home since 2009.


The capital club have turned around a poor start to the season with a nine-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.

"I was expecting a frosty reception from the fans tonight so I just have to say thank you to them for giving me a great reception when I came on and when I was training afterwards", Rose said.

The Spain playmaker has been scoring goals and creating opportunities for his teammates lately.

"I'm very happy about how things are going", Isco said.

Thankfully for Spurs, Real were not much better at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur was a tough opponent and could have left the Spanish capital with a win if it wasn't for a few missed chances near the end.

Lloris also made a brilliant save with his foot after a close-range header by Karim Benzema in the second half.

Pochettino said Rose is expected to be a reserve.

Meanwhile, Real have been boosted by the return of first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas from injury.

Bale is definitely out of this week's contest, with Zidane unsure about the reverse fixture as well.
