Overview

Tottenham take on Atletico Madrid in their second International Champions Cup game and will be keen to record a victory following their loss to Juventus in the opening clash in Melbourne. Mauricio Pochettino gave a number of young players on tour a chance to impress along with the senior players. Summer signings Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen were also involved in the game and are likely to take part again during the clash against the La Liga giants.

Atletico, on the other hand, are playing their first match of the competition and are likely to be under-prepared on the fitness front compared to their opponents. Diego Simeone will be keen to give all the players at his disposal a run out against Spurs, who have already played two games thus far.

Fernando Torres is likely feature as he has been training with the team since the start of pre-season and so will other first-team stars Gabi, Oblak and Saul. The two teams have not faced each other since 1963 when they were up against each other in the Uefa European Cup Winners Cup, when Spurs won 5-1.
