The Spurs are hurting since both Toby Alderweireld, 27, and Harry Kane, 23, are out due to knee injuries. Though the club recently got some good news that the injuries aren’t season-ending, neither will be available for this game, according to Fox Sports. Harry might be eligible for the Spurs’ Premier League match on the 22. As for Toby, the club expects him out for weeks, not months. At this point, they’ll take what they can get.
Eric Dier, 22, will be called up to replace Toby, according to manager Mauricio Pochettino, 44. That may not be enough to deal with the attacks from Kevin Volland, 24, Javier Hernandez, 28, and Hakan Calhanoglu, 22. These three will pile on the pressure on the English side, just the way the coach taught them to.
“My philosophy of football is the style that we play at Leverkusen,” manager Roger Schmidt, 49, said, per the Independent. “We play intense football. One of our main points is a good organization against the ball. We try to win the ball very early, very close to the goal of the opposition. We try to be very fast to the ball, and switch to the offensive. It is a little bit similar to Tottenham.”
Using Hotspurs’ own style against them? That’s brilliant! That might be what they need to secure their first win in the Champions league group. They drew against Monaco and CSKA Moscow, which is better than a loss but not as good as a win. If Bayer wants to advance, they better start racking up the points or else this mediocre performance will leave them watching the rest of the Champions League from home.
Who do you want to win this match, HollywoodLifers? Are you hoping the Hotspurs take the win? Or do you back Bayer as they look for their first victory?
