brutal Champions League draw a blessing?

Post by kemacooll » Sun Sep 24, 2017 12:30 pm

Tottenham Hotspur were drawn into the Champions League “group of death,” but that could be more a blessing than a curse for Spurs.

Tottenham Hotspur supporters who are convinced whatever football gods may be out there are against their beloved Lilywhites probably didn’t feel any differently about that particular matter after watching the Champions League draw take place earlier this week. For those who somehow missed it or are in denial, Tottenham will be matched
against defending champions Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL of Cyprus.

The reactions had by Tottenham supporters and casual observers to this grouping were about what one would expect. Spurs fans found themselves in a state somewhere between disbelief and outright laughter at the club’s situation, while respected journalists around the world pointed out Tottenham have little chance of making much noise in this season’s competition. The following from Roger Gonzalez of CBS Sports, who listed Spurs as one of the losers of the draw:

Poor Spurs. After a good group last year, the team is now drawn with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. That’s four matches against two top contenders in the cup. How in the world are they expected to get through, especially with [sic] the team is playing poorly at home at Wembley? They are going to have to get at least seven points in the fourth matches against Real and Dortmund to have a chance. I don’t see that happening.
Every point Gonzalez made is fair, if not completely accurate. Four matches against two top contenders, two of which will be played against what has to be considered the top side in the world today, is brutal for any side that isn’t Barcelona. So much has been made about Tottenham’s inability to earn positive results at Wembley Stadium, the club’s home for the 2017-18 season, that you probably stumbled upon this piece by accident if you don’t know about that narrative.
