Eintracht Frankfurt vs Tottenham LIVE! Champions League match stream, team news, lineups, TV, prediction today



Tottenham look to bounce back from their painful north London derby defeat as they travel to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League tonight. Antonio Conte’s side were beaten in the Premier League for the first time this season as Arsenal secured bragging rights with a dominant display.

There is a need for Spurs to respond in Europe too, their last Champions League match being a 2-0 defeat to Sporting Lisbon. With the Portuguese side in pole position in Group D, these two matches between Frankfurt and Spurs in the space of eight days will have a huge bearing on who progresses to the knockout stages.

Last season’s Europa League winners Frankfurt have lost to Sporting and beat Marseille so far, matching Tottenham’s record, and sit sixth in the Bundesliga after a decent start to their domestic season. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below, with Dan Kilpatrick in Frankfurt providing expert analysis!

Ivan Perisic has backed Antonio Conte to deliver trophies for Tottenham and urged his team-mates to listen to their head coach.

Conte last night offered a robust defense of his tactics and selections in a punchy pre-match news conference here in Frankfurt, following Saturday’s 3-1 derby defeat to Arsenal. The Italian defended his decision to overlook wing-backs Djed Spence and Matt Doherty in favor of Emerson Royal and dismissed suggestions his side are too negative.

Conte issues strong defense of Tottenham style – ‘I’m not stupid’

A bristling Antonio Conte offered a robust defense of his Tottenham management following Saturday’s defeat to Arsenal, insisting he is “not stupid” and can “teach football to many people”.

Speaking in Germany the day after Manchester United’s 6-3 defeat to rivals Manchester City, Conte dismissed suggestions his tactics were negative, pointedly saying he had never conceded “six, seven or eight” as a manager.

He also defended his selection decisions after being told supporters were wondering if summer signing Djed Spence, 21, would be given an opportunity in the wake of Emerson Royal’s sending off at the weekend.

Fiery Conte sends clear Spurs message over selection and tactics

Antonio Conte hit back at his armchair critics here in Germany last night, offering a robust defense of his selections and tactics, which suggests the Tottenham boss is not about to change his approach against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Told supporters were wondering if summer signing Djed Spence would be given an opportunity at right wing-back after Emerson Royal’s red card against Arsenal on Saturday, a bristling Conte said the 21-year-old is still “not ready”.

Unprompted, he added: “Also [Matt] Doherty last season played every game. Now, I’m not seeing him in the right way to start the game. I am not stupid, I don’t want to lose. I try to pick the best team. If they [fans] trust me, it’s okay. If they don’t trust me, then I’m the coach and I need to take the best decisions for Tottenham.”

Prediction: 1-1 draw

Frankfurt were a different beast in Europe last season and turned their stadium into a fortress. With Spurs yet to fully convince, a draw away from home has to be seen as a good result.

1-1 draw.

Tottenham team news: Royal to continue, Ben Davies back

Conte has admitted he is worried about Spurs’ mounting injury problems, with Dejan Kulusevksi and Lucas Moura ruled out.

The Italian also says that Matt Doherty is not ready to start games and hinted something similar about Djed Spence. That means Emerson Royal will continue at right-back despite his red card against Arsenal, with options light.

Clement Lenglet will likely deputise in defense but Ben Davies is available once more, with Conte potentially switching to a 3-5-2 formation for the first time this season.
