Tottenham Hotspur will face Bayern Munich for the first time in the Champions League this Tuesday night.
Indeed, these two teams have not faced each other in a competitive duel since the third round of the UEFA Cup in 1983.
Bayern currently lead Group B with three points – two points clear of second-placed Tottenham after one matchday.
For many, this Tuesday night tie could decide the final standings in the group.
With Spurs struggling a little to start the season, coach Niko Kovac will be expected to take all three points from this fixture, but Bayern’s troubles at left back could throw a wrench into the works.
Bayern have won each of the last seven Bundesliga titles but have not lifted the European Cup since 2012-13, which is too long for a club of their calibre.
With thier resolve to end that jinx this season an explosive clash is expected at White Hart Lane tonight
