Dele Alli was a spectator when Tottenham Hotspur earned a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid earlier this month but after a frustrating wait he will get his first taste of Champions League action this season in Wednesday's return at Wembley.

Two of Europe's most prolific goalscorers will again go head-to-head at Wembley on Wednesday but, with Kane expected to be recovered from the hamstring injury that forced him out of the defeat against Manchester United on Saturday, Vertonghen paid his team-mate a glowing compliment.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said over the weekend that he was optimistic the prolific 24-year would get the green light to face the Spanish giants.

But I want to say one hundred percent sure a decision because we have one day more. "We're feeling good and we're thinking about the game".

Kane has been in sensational form so far this season, scoring 13 times in 12 appearances and his importance to Tottenham was summed by his leading role in Spurs' 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in Santiago Bernabeu.

The attacking midfielder's red card for a awful tackle in last season's Europa League exit at the hands of Belgian side Gent made him ineligible for Tottenham's first three Champions League games this season. I like that we have a big game coming up. "Having him is always a major boost, but definitely we can beat them and that's our intention going on the pitch without Harry Kane - we go for the win".

However, this is a really tough game. "They are a club with a chance to do great things".

Ronaldo and Kane: "They are two incredible players". I genuinely expect it to be much closer than the reverse tie in terms of performance and result.

"The players know where they are".

"I feel I work my best in these situations". They backed up a 3-0 win at home to Apoel Nicosia with a 3-1 victory away to Borussia Dortmund before drawing at home to Tottenham.
