Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Tottenham will be hoping to get their Champions League campaign back on track when they host Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Spurs looked in complete control during their opening match in Olympiakos, leading 2-0 after half-an-hour, but the Greek outfit hit back to claim a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw.
Bayern, meanwhile, had few problems seeing off Red Star Belgrade 3-0 in their opening match and have lost just one of their last 14 Champions League group stage matches.

Head To Head
These two teams have only met on four previous occasions – twice in the 1982-83 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and twice in the 1983-84 UEFA Cup.
Tottenham won 2-0 when they last locked horns in the English capital, although Bayern claimed a 1-1 draw in London on their first European visit in October 1982.
The pair did meet during their preparations for the 2019-20 campaign, though, and Spurs won on penalties following a 2-2 draw at the Allianz Arena.
