Glenn Hoddle has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 12th October, that Tottenham Hotspur are set to face a massive test when they travel to take on Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Spurs are set to face Madrid next Tuesday in Champions League action, and if they can pull off a shock victory they will almost confirm their passage into the knockout stages of the European competition.

Tottenham have won their first two Champions League matches this season, to move into a commanding position in the group.

And Hoddle has suggested that Tottenham need to travel to the Spanish capital with no fear of what could happen.

“It’ll be a massive test for Tottenham, but they’re going to have to come up with some sort of plan,” Hoddle said.

“Spurs have to go over there believing they can get a decent result, and why not? They should be going there going toe-to-toe and see if they can come away with a decent result and a draw would be a good result.”

Tottenham are boosted with the news that Gareth Bale and Keylor Navas are both set to miss the game.

However, picking up three points against Madrid will still be a major challenge for Spurs.

Tottenham do have the matter of a Premier League match against Bournemouth to be concerned with first too.

Spurs are due to face the Cherries on Saturday, when they will be looking to pick up their first three points at Wembley in the league.
