Tottenham have a toughie in Leverkusen while Leicester aim to preserve their 100% record against FC Copenhagen

The Champions League is back this week, with two Premier League clubs in action on Tuesday night and Tottenham Hotspur have the toughest assignment.

Having bounced back from that home defeat against Monaco with a victory away to CSKA Moscow, Spurs now have a double header against Bayer Leverkusen and they will be targeting four points from the two games.

A draw in Germany would represent an excellent return although Toby Alderweireld’s injury has thrown a spanner in the works, with Harry Kane also missing in attack.

The other Group E match pits CSKA against Monaco, with the French side slight favourites to continue their strong start in the Champions League this term.

Meanwhile, Leicester City are within touching distance of the last sixteen stage already and three more points against FC Copenhagen puts them in a practically unassailable position.

The Foxes have enjoyed wins against Club Brugge and FC Porto, with the Danish champions looking to try and gain a point from their trip to the King Power.

Real Madrid are overwhelming favourites to beat Legia Warsaw and it could be a mammoth scoreline for the champions of Europe, while Borussia Dortmund are in Portugal for a clash against Sporting.

Italian champions Juventus are favourites to win away to Lyon, with Sevilla heading to Croatia for a match against Dinamo.
