Champions League: Tottenham vs. PSV team news, starting XIs, TV channel, live stream

Should results go against them Pochettino’s Spurs could be knocked out tonight

Tottenham Hotspur vs. PSV Eindhoven
  • What: Champions League group B matchday four 
  • When: Tuesday 6 November 
  • Where: Wembley Stadium, London 
  • Kick-off: 8pm (UK time) 
  • TV channel: live on BT Sport 2 

The 2-2 draw against PSV in Holland two weeks ago has left Tottenham facing possible early elimination from the Uefa Champions League.

After three matches Spurs are bottom of group B with just one point, the same as PSV. If Inter Milan win against Barcelona tonight and Spurs fail to beat the Dutchmen at Wembley then the Premier League side will be unable to qualify for the last-16.

Following the disappointing draw in Holland on 24 October, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “If we need to blame someone, it is ourselves. We only have one point. It will be very difficult. We need to win the three games we have to play and also have some results that help us.

“When you compete at that level against Inter Milan or PSV, of course Barcelona, it is not easy to go to the next stage of the Champions League and qualify.”

Group B permutations

In tonight’s group B matches Inter play Barca at the San Siro and Tottenham host PSV at Wembley (both 8pm starts).

Uefa.com explains who can qualify and who can be knocked out this evening. Only the top two teams can qualify from the group.

  • Barcelona will be through as group winners with victory against Inter
  • Inter will be through with a win if the other game is drawn 
  • Spurs will be unable to finish in the top two if they fail to win and Inter gain victory 
  • PSV will be unable to finish in the top two if they fail to win and Inter gain victory

Team news and starting XIs
