Tottenham Hotspur have a big challenge on their hands this afternoon as they look to get the better of Real Madrid in a friendly game.
It’s a final chance for Tottenham’s players to show manager Mauricio Pochettino why they deserve to be part of the team for the opening match of the Premier League season this weekend, away at Manchester United.
It’s also a final chance for the boss to try out some new tactics and ideas before the matches increase in intensity and importance.
It’s not going to be an easy game for Spurs because of the world class talent that Real Madrid have all over their squad.
It’s also a chance for old friends to catch up with Gareth Bale and Luka Modric both having become vital parts of the Real Madrid squad since leaving White Hart Lane.
While the result of this game isn’t vital for Spurs, it is a good chance for them to send out a warning to Manchester United and their other main rivals.
