Champions League Preview: Tottenham - FC Twente

As Tottenham welcome the visit of FC Twente on Wednesday night, it will be a truly special occasion for fans of the club.

For the first time in 48 years, Spurs fans will witness a tie in Europe's elite club competition at their home ground. The last time that a European Cup game took place at north London club’s home was in 1962, when Bill Nicholson’s Spurs were dumped out of the tournament by eventual winners Benfica - after the second leg in London saw the hosts succumb to a 4-3 aggregate.

The story is too old to be commented.
