The Audi Cup live from the Allianz Arena on Tuesday with a semi final between Tottenham Hotspur and the star studded Real Madrid. Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez will be looking to continue his side's good pre season as Madrid picked up both the Chinese and Australian ICC cups and they will bring a strong squad to Germany for Bayern's Audi Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez will lead the way for the Galacticos as they look to regain their league and european titles from Barcelona. Real come into this game off the back of a draw with Milan. In two of the four pre season games Madrid have played they have struggled to score but with such an array of talent I do not think these struggles will continue. Two former Tottenham players will be involved for Real madrid with Gareth Bale and Luca Modric both key players for Madrid, having played a number of years in the Tottenham shirt.
Tottenham fans that travel over are sure to give both Modric and Bale big rounds of applause and I think that Tottenham fans will be looking forward to playing against their former superstars. Tottenham can bring a strong squad here but Harry Kane is their lead striker and top player from last season and he will have his work cut out to get anything from a solid Real Madrid back four. Manuel Pochettino has brought a solidity to Tottenham since coming in from Southampton last season. Toby Alderweireld has come in to boost the defence and along with Jan Vertoghen they should be a good partnership. Chadli, Erikson and Lamela will be key to everything Tottenham do going forward. This is going to be a good test for Tottenham's young midfield and one I think they will rise to.
Another solid pre season game here and one that we should be able to get some value from. I see both teams going for a win here but we should see lots of substitutions as well with players from both squads looking to get their way into the starting line up for their domestic leagues. I am taking the overs here in what should be an exciting game between two good attacking sides.
