Toby Alderweireld says Tottenham can win Champions League

Posted September 29, 2016

The Bundesliga champions travel to Madrid on Wednesday to face the side that knocked them out of last season's Champions League semi-finals - where Griezmann scored - and are eyeing revenge.

Bayern have now won only two of their last 11 away games in the competition and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer summed up another disappointing loss on foreign soil, saying: "Atletico were clever and had the killer instinct which we didn't have".

Lewandowski acknowledges the strength of Atleti's defence but says Bayern must show they have learned from last season's disappointment if they are to make it two wins from two in Group D.

A 1 - 1 draw is the most likely outcome with William Hill and Bet365 offering odds of 11/2 and 5/1 respectively. "And for that I do not think we had too many chances to get back into it". "Hopefully that the game goes well for us".

Bayern join Barcelona in now tasting defeat twice amongst Atletico's 14 wins at the Calderon under Simeone.

The first meeting between the pair, Barcelona will be looking to improve on their recent form in Germany, having failed to win their last three matches there. "The most risky is Griezmann, he scored in the semi-final in Munich, but what makes Atletico unsafe is how the play as a team".

The five-time European champions had opened their latest continental campaign with a 5-0 demolition of Rostov, while Atletico, who have reached the final of Europe's elite club competition in two of the past three seasons, edged a 1-0 win at PSV Eindhoven. "We could have played better".

"We must play differently to the last time in Madrid, and I hope we will do it better".

The Gunners face Swiss Champions FC Basel at the Emirates and one the most interesting thing about the fixture is the Xhaka brother's coming face to face in club football just as they did in global level when Switzerland played against Georgia at Euro 2016.

"The base has been here since the team won the triple [Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League in 2013]", Alonso said.

Diego Simeone and Carlo Ancelotti have been going head to head for nearly 20 years, first while Simeone was a player at Inter Milan and Lazio, and Ancelotti was coaching some of the best teams in Italy from the mid-90s through the early 2000s. "All three have recovered sufficiently to play the game". "It is a top match", said the former German captain.

Winning 48% of his duels (4.8 per game), Lewandowski is a nightmare in a box for any defender.
