Mauricio Pochettino takes his Tottenham side to Bayer Leverkusen this evening knowing that the back-to-back games against the German side will go a long way to deciding whether his side progress to the Champions League knock out stages. 

Spurs sit second in Group E with three points after following up their defeat to Monaco with an impressive win at CSKA Moscow last time out. Bayer have been in indifferent form domestically this season and currently occupy mid-table in the Bundesliga, while the German side have recorded consecutive draws in the Champions League.

The Key Battle - Javier Hernandez vs Jan Vertonghen

The former Manchester United striker has been in fine form for Leverkusen this season, notching five league goals in six starts. Without his usual defensive partner Toby Alderweireld due to injury, the onus will be on Vertonghen to lead the defence and stop the Mexican international adding to his tally.

Last Meeting:

The two sides have met just once before, in a UEFA Cup group stage tie in November 2006. Dimitar Berbatov's first half goal was enough to secure a 1-0 win for Tottenham in the BayArena.
