Having it in our heads that we’ve done that already is a good thing.“We didn’t start this campaign great either but we got the win against Red Star and we’re in a better position than we were after a few games last season.“If we win we’d be in a great spot to qualify and then in  the knockout stage, as you saw last year, it can go anyone’s way.”Spurs travel to Red Star Belgrade tonight having won just four of their FIFTEEN games in all competitions this season.Kane said: “I’ve said before, over the last few weeks, that it’s hard to put a finger on it. It’s the first time that this group has been through a poor spell like this.5 Spurs will look to bounce back from their draw against Everton on WednesdayCredit: AFPRed Star Belgrade fans make it into the Tottenham Hotspur stadium despite being banned by UEFA for racist chanting“We’ve normally started seasons well and picked up form and then got better and better. In this one, we are struggling to find that form and to get wins over the line.”Kane returns after missing Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Everton with a virus.He said: “Even on Sunday, we were 1-0 up, trying to hold on. It could have been a big away win and we obviously conceded. We can’t quite get there, we can’t quite get over the line.“It’s nothing to do with the fight in the squad. It’s just one of those spells. All we can do is try and put it right on the pitch. We had a good win in the Champions League in our last outing and that’s what we’re going to try and do again.“We’ve then got an important game at home to Sheffield United before the international break. We want to get a win just so we can go away with a better feeling than what we have been.”Spurs sit 11th in the Premier League with 13 points from 11 matches having mustered just three wins so far.But in the Champions League, despite being hammered 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich last month, they are doing better than last year, with four points from their opening three games.They are second in Group B, five points behind Bayern, who have just sacked manager Niko Kovac.Kane said: “Obviously the Champions League campaign last year was so good for us. We got further than a lot of people thought we would but our league form wasn’t great towards the end of last season.“They are two big competitions — the Premier League and the Champions League. It takes a lot of energy and commitment, playing midweek and then weekends, so we’ve got to try and get our Champions League form to match our Premier League form.“We’ve got to try to find a way of consistently winning games in both competitions and not just in one and then lose in the other.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big one“We’re here to win trophies. If we can win one of the trophies we are still in, we will see that as a success.”Tottenham thrashed Red Star 5-0 at home two weeks ago, when away fans were banned as punishment for racist chanting at a play-off in Helsinki in July.Red Star posted an anti-racism video on their Instagram account amid fears of a repeat tonight.And England captain Kane, who informed the officials when his Three Lions team-mates were abused in Bulgaria last month, said: “Hopefully it doesn’t happen again and we will play a tough football match and get the win we need to take us a step closer to qualifying.“If anything does happen, there will be a protocol in place like there was in Sofia and we will follow that.“I’ve been told by a few people who have played there and been there that it will be a really hostile game and a really hostile atmosphere, but that’s what European nights are about.“I’m looking forward to it and I know the other players are looking forward to it too. It’s going to be a tough test, a tougher game than what we had at home.

But without setting deadlines. It is clear that he wants to return when he is 100% full of confidence. When, in summary, it is the Asensio before the injury. From the first moment he wants to fight for a place in the eleven holder of Zidane because he knows he has the full confidence of the French coach.

And, above all, disciplined and hardworking: he has been doing daily eight-hour sessions in Valdebebas for months.

In addition, the Juventus striker holds the record for most goals in a single season: 17 in the 2013-2014 campaign with the Real Madrid shirt. As if that were not enough, the other two best records are also from Portuguese: 16, in 2015-2016 and 15, in the 2017-2018 campaign. The domain of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi hIt has been overwhelming. The Barcelona attacker adds six Champions League top scorer awards, five of them alone. It was specifically Messi the pichichi last season with 12 goals. Only Gerd Müller is close to what was achieved by Christian Y Messi. Whoever was Bayern striker took over four trophies top scorer in the 70s although two of them shared.The drought of Cristiano and Messi in this group stageAll these data surprise with this season. Both figures only accumulate two goals each in the first phase. Very poor figure and well below their usual numbers. Quite the opposite of what was shown by the striker of Bayern, what He has scored 10 goals in six games. To one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of eleven goals in the group stage of the Champions League. What has been achieved by Haaland is unique. 8 goals in his debut in the final phase of the Champions League and with 19 years. Predicting that he may be the potential scorer of the next decade.

Both of them they are eclipsing to the two great nominees of the award in recent years: Cristiano Ronaldo Y Lionel messi. The deed of Lewandowski and of Haaland It is not a small thing since we have to go back to the 2006-2007 campaign to find a player at the top that is neither the Portuguese nor the Argentine crack.

Simeone comes to this moment so significant for him become a legend of a Athletic that has returned to give to speak in European football after his triumph in Liverpool. Cholo is for many the most important technician of the red and white entity, the one that changed the history of Athletic, turned back into a big one. With seven titles is the coach who has won the most in the rojiblanco club. Two Europas League, two European Super Cups, one League, one Cup and one Spanish Super Cup are its seven titles. And he played two Champions League finals. Luis Aragones, with six, it is behind the Cholo. It is one of the three that has won the league tournament how player and as a coach (The others are Luis Aragonés and Marcel Domingo). SimeoneHowever, it also had an important career as a footballer. First was three seasons (campaigns 94-95, 95-96 and 96-97), in which he won the league and cup tournament hand in hand by Radomir Antic. That medullary line in which he formed was made up of Caminero, Vizcaíno, Pantic and Simeone. If Vizcaíno put the balance, Pantic the stopped ball and Caminero the quality, the Colo was a compendium of all of them. I know he went to Italy for return later to Vicente Calderón and play two more exercises de rojiblanco: seasons 2003-04 and 04-05. In total, he defended the shirt of the Atlético in 172 games and scored 30 goals. Already as a footballer he connected with the mattress stands. If your playing career was positive, as a coach has done history. He arrived in December 2011 and his first match disputed it before the Malaga on January 7, 2012. Atlético tied at zero, which was then considered a big success since the Madrid team had been eliminated shortly before the Cup against Albacete, a Segunda B. He failed to qualify for the Champions League, but he won the Europa League in an unforgettable final against Athletic in Bucharest.Since then so far (eight and a half seasons) is the corner piece on which they have been based all successes of a club that has come to be second in the UEFA ranking. The match by match, the Never stop believing are already historical slogans of a team that looks Barcelona and Real Madrid in the face. Winning the league title in 2013-14 was the subject of study in many places. Football Europe praised that red and white rebellion for jump the queue between the two greats of Spain, led by Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.In total has coached Atlético in 467 games with a incredible balance: 280 games won, 109 tied and 78 lost. His Atleti has scored 773 goals and has conceded 344. It is the second that has led the Madrid team the most in its entire history, behind Luis Aragonés (612). And 28 wins separate him from the ‘Sage of Hortaleza’. Simeone is called to become the coach with the most wins in Atlético’s history. He has two more years of contract. For now, and until the competition returns, he has a dream: to reach the Champions League final and conquer that title he lacks.. Until then, you can enjoy your 50 years as a family.
