Tottenham vs Eintracht Frankfurt LIVE!

Champions League Group D is finally at the halfway point when Tottenham host Eintracht Frankfurt tonight. The two teams sit on four points, with Sporting in the lead on six and Marseille bottom of the group on three points. A couple of sub-par performances away from home have left Antonio Conte’s side in need of improvement in Europe.

It was goalless in Frankfurt a week ago, and Spurs have since beaten Brighton in the Premier League when they switched to a 3-5-2 formation. Conte has opted for the extra attacker in Richarlison tonight, which means Yves Bissouma falls to the bench.

Frankfurt suffered a miserable loss to VfL Bochum at the weekend, the only game the bottom Bundesliga side have won in the league all season, so significant improvement is needed tonight. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below!

Sporty – 6

Tottenham – 4

Eintracht Frankfurt – 4

There is still a lot to play for in Group D at the halfway point. Win for Spurs tonight and they will be in a strong position ahead of hosting Sporting in North London.

Anything else, however, and things will start to get very edgy for Conte’s side.

Kane: Time to show we’ve changed

19:17 , mate verri

Harry Kane has challenged his Tottenham teammates to show how they have matured under Antonio Conte in tonight’s Champions League clash.

Spurs have been unconvincing on their return to competition, beating Marseille at home only after the French side went down to 10 men, then lost at Sporting Lisbon and drew 0-0 in Germany last week.

Kane has acknowledged that there is pressure to step up under the lights tonight and says it is time for the team to show their improved mindset since Conte took over.

“I think a lot has changed. [under Conte]I think we’ve really tried to change the mindset of the club, not just the players, the whole club in general, and I think we’ve had a good impact on that,” Kane said. “We still have room to improve, for sure, in all departments. Antonio is a top-level coach”.

There’s not much to live for tonight

For those who are very, very, very bored while we wait for the teams to be announced, here are some “highlights” from last week’s clash between the two teams in Frankfurt.

Finished goalless – Spurs are sure to be more forceful to push for a win at home tonight.

Team news track?

18:34 , mate verri

Richarlison will be desperate to get started tonight, alongside Son and Kane. However, if it is a 3-5-2 from Conte, he is likely to miss out again.

Conte’s trusted midfield duo

18:28 , mate verri

Tottenham’s 0-0 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt last week was summed up in a late stretch of the game that included one of the only moments of true individual quality.

In the 91st minute, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg pulled away from an opponent on the edge of his own box and charged down the pitch at half-time. The Dane passed Harry Kane and moved on, but the striker’s return ball was hit too hard and another Spurs attack was broken.

Spurs’ three-forward squandering was the story of a forgettable game, but while Kane, Heung-min Son and Richarlison were frustrated in Germany, Hojbjerg and his midfield partner Rodrigo Bentancur were quietly assured. The two also put on a standout performance in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Brighton, this time aided by a third midfielder, Yves Bissouma, with the top two sure to keep their places tonight.

Minute of silence will be held

18:19 , mate verri

Tottenham players and staff took part in a ceremony to create a permanent tribute to the late fitness trainer Gian Piero Ventrone.

An evergreen Italian oak tree was planted at the club’s Hotspur Way training ground on Monday morning, with the club publishing a picture of head coach Antonio Conte helping to lay the ground for the tribute.

A minute’s silence was also observed in memory of Ventrone after his tragic death at the age of 61 on Thursday.

More tributes will be paid in north London tonight before kick-off, both to Ventrone and former Spurs striker John Duncan.

Prediction

18:11 , mate verri

Spurs’ change of formation against Brighton brought an immediate upgrade in midfield and a large chunk of possession, to hand the Seagulls their first home loss in nine months.

Antonio Conte will be tempted to continue in the same 3-5-2 form against Frankfurt, and Spurs should have more than enough if they see more of the ball to beat the Germans and take a big step towards the round of 16.

Spurs to win 2-0.

The visitors have arrived!

News from the Frankfurt team

17:58 , mate verri

For Frankfurt, Mario Gotze remains a doubt for the game with an ankle injury, but Kristijan Jakic is back and fit.

The match is likely to come too early for Jerome Onguene, who is suffering from a hip injury.

Tottenham striker Dejan Kulusevski will miss the game as he works to overcome a thigh injury, although Harry Kane avoided an ankle injury after a tough tackle against Brighton.

Lucas Moura will return to the substitutes’ bench after a loss, while Emerson Royal is available and his suspension only affects domestic games.

A potential line-up change will be at the forefront of Antonio Conte’s thinking, with Richarlison potentially returning to the top three, along with Heung-min Son and Kane.

A change from the 3-5-2 used against Brighton to a 3-4-3 would make Yves Bissouma the midfielder most likely to break through.

Predicted Tottenham XI (3-4-3): You cry; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son.
