UEFA Champions League Group A: Tottenham Hotspur vs. Werder Bremen (Live Blog)

Chris PotterCorrespondent INovember 24, 2010

Good evening and welcome to my live blog for tonight's match, arguably Tottenham Hotspur's biggest in their 128-year footballing history.

A win sees them qualify from and possibly top Group A—no easy feat considering that they have had to face the European Champions and the Dutch title holders.

A loss or draw will see them travel to Holland to face FC Twente needing at least a draw just to progress.

Tonight, Tottenham host Werder Bremen at White Hart Lane for a 19:45 kickoff (GMT).

In the reverse match on 14 September, the London club's first ever Champions League match, Spurs raced into an early two-goal lead thanks to an own goal and a header from Peter Crouch (pictured). However, the team wilted under pressure after the interval and goals from Marko Marin and Hugo Almeida either side of the break meant Spurs had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Since then, the clubs have taken different directions: Spurs have won two in a row in the league and sit seventh, while Bremen have leaked goals at an alarming rate and have lost five of their last six league matches.

The bookies have made the home team overwhelming favourites, despite their uninspiring home form in the league. But beware a German team which boasts the quality of midfield playmaker Marko Marin, the best player on the pitch when the two sides last met.
