The two teams enter the tie at Wembley having lost at the weekend and the pressure is beginning to build on Zinedine Zidane
Tottenham welcome Real Madrid to Wembley on Wednesday with both teams looking to take a step closer to the knock-out stage of the Champions League.
The sides are locked level on seven points each after the first three games and they could not be separated when they met at the Bernabeu in October, with the game finishing 1-1.
Both teams come into the game licking their wounds following weekend defeats, but the spotlight is firmly on Zinedine Zidane's men, who have been floundering this season.

Real Madrid have taken a 19-man squad to London for the game and they will be without a number of key players. Gareth Bale will miss out on a reunion with his old club, while Raphael Varane is also ruled out.
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas is injured, meaning Kiko Casilla will continue as number one, but there is good news after Isco was deemed fit enough to make the journey.

Real Madrid's shock La Liga defeat to Girona at the weekend was a serious blow to the champions in the race for the title as it allowed Barcelona to move eight points clear and it has raised questions over Zidane's stewardship of the club this season.
The French coach will be desperate to put that embarrassing loss behind him by picking up a win over Spurs in London, but that will require his key players to step up a level, particularly considering that Mauricio Pochettino's men were left bruised by their defeat to Man United at the weekend.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the joint-top scorer in the Champions League this season, along with Harry Kane, but the Portuguese has been finding it difficult on the domestic stage, scoring just once in six league appearances so far.
If Real are to overcome a hungry Spurs outfit at Wembley, they will need the likes of Ronaldo to hit the ground running and, while the season is far from over, the consequences could be far-reaching for Zidane should they fail to win.
