Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has said that the club’s Champions League game against Barcelona is a must-win one. Spurs take on Barcelona at Wembley on Wednesday. Both teams will be entering the match at the back of contrasting results in their previous Champions League fixture. While Barcelona thrashed PSV 4-0, Spurs lost 2-1 to Inter Milan.
However, both teams’ performances since their respective Champions League openers have also been contrasting. While Spurs have won all of their matches, Barcelona have won none of their matches. In last season’s Champions League, Tottenham played Real Madrid at Wembley and won 3-1. Hence, it will be interesting to see how the match goes.
Danny Rose said that the match is a very vital for Tottenham. He said, “It’s a massive game. We have to win. We’re fully aware of that. We’re all bitterly disappointed from how the Milan game finished and no mistakes, we have to win on Wednesday”
Rose also said that Spurs showed last season by beating Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund that they can be more than a match for Europe’s top teams. He said, “We went to the Bernabeu and were unlucky not to win that game and then when we played them at Wembley we outplayed them, and not just them, Dortmund as well. We’ve proved that we can do it. At the minute we’re winning ugly and we’re just waiting for the performance to go with the victories.”
Tottenham Hotspur beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 to return to the top four of the Premier League table. Their next Premier League is against Cardiff City on Saturday.
