The Real Madrid vs. Tottenham match will be played on Tuesday, October 17, at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid. This is the third round derby game of UEFA Champions League group H. Real Madrid and Tottenham are neck-and-neck after the second round, with six points each and the same goal difference.
These teams played four matches against each other. Real Madrid won three games, while one match ended in a draw. Their most recent meeting was in April 2011, when Real Madrid eliminated Tottenham in the Champions League quarterfinal by 5:0 on aggregate.
Real Madrid is trailing by five points behind Barcelona after only eight rounds in Primera. Cristiano Ronaldo's suspension took its toll, and the team unexpectedly dropped many points. Ronaldo scored his first goal in Primera last weekend against Getafe, but he is as lethal as ever in Champions League - he scored four goals already. The upcoming match against Tottenham is vital for them. If they win, the first place in the group will be near.
