Bayer Leverkusen vs Tottenham Spurs
Spurs have already shown many times that they have to be taken seriously in the Premier League, but now it’s time for the Champions League! „We have young players who I think need to gain experience in the Champions League so that they can go on to compete and have a chance of winning this competition” — Pochettino said. Unfortunately for Spurs, both of their main players: Harry Kane and Hugo Loris are out of the squad for this game.
My score prediction: 1:3 for Tottenham!
Real Madrid vs Legia Warsaw
After two rounds of the Champions League and matches against Borussia Dortmund and Sporting Lisbon. Legia has zero points and a rather unimpressive balance of goals 0–8. By far it is the worst team of the current edition. But without points and goals is also Club Brugge and Dinamo Zagreb (both balance goals 0–7), and no points — Borussia Moenchengladbach (1–6).
Even if Legia finishes the group round with no points, it’s still not enough to be remembered for a long time, because in Champions League history there were already 16 teams with such a notorious „record”. It happened for the first time in 1997 when 24 teams were competing for the title. Master FC Kosice (Slovakia) lost then all the group matches with Manchester United, Juventus and Feyenoord Rotterdam. Many strong teams dropped off with 0 points in UCL history like Olympique de Marseille in 2013, Villarreal in 2011, Anderlecht in 2004, and Fenerbahce Istanbul in 2001.
Real Madrid will play tonight 400th European Cup match, which is another bad piece of information for Legia Warsaw players. Galacticos love to be remembered in football history!
My score prediction: 7:0 for Real Madrid
