Event of the day

Our event of the day 


is the UEFA Champions League Group H fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid at Wembley Stadium, London.

The two teams are looking strong favourites to progress to the group stages, sharing an identical record of 7 points from their opening 3 games with an identical goal difference. This is particularly impressive from Spurs considering Real Madrid are the defending champions and widely regarded as one of, if not the best team in Europe. 


An intimidating atmosphere will greet the Spanish champions in London tonight and it is likely to be a thrilling game of football. When the two sides met just over a fortnight ago the result was seen as Tottenham finally making the step up to the highest level where they can compete with the biggest names on the European stage. The combative display was testament to the quality and mental strength of this Tottenham side. Tonight, they will look to take the game to Real more, with home advantage and wanting to bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend. If striker Harry Kane is fit it will drastically improve their chances of getting something from tonight – either way it should be a close game full of quality.

Honourable mentions

around the globe go to the third day of the ATP Rolex Paris Masters at the AccorHotels Arena. Some of the top seeds of the tournament are in action including Rafael Nadal, Marin Čilić and Alexander Zverev with Nadal bidding to finish the year as the World Number One, with a win in the French capital. We have reached the conclusion of the Baseball season with a game 7 in the World Series, the LA Dodgers take on the Houston Astros at Dodger Stadium, the winner of the game takes the Championship - it should be a thrilling evening. In cricket, India take on New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi for the first T20 International of a three-game series.
