Tottenham's Champions League campaign gets underway against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday and on paper, the match holds the key to their hopes of qualification for the knockout rounds. "We need to feel that Wembley can be home".

The two sides are meeting in Group H at Wembley, with Dortmund returning to the scene of their 2013 final defeat to Bayern Munich.

"Last season after the first game against Monaco it was hard to change the dynamic", he said.

"But we have a good team as well".

Real are favourites to finish first - and also win the competition for a third consecutive season - while APOEL are expected to be bottom, leaving Spurs and Dortmund to battle for second place. "But football is not theories".

"We've got to play our game. It was a very painful experience because we couldn't be at the level we needed to be, but now that's not an excuse".

Spurs must improve at their temporary home, but will be without playmaker Dele Alli after his red card against Gent last season, with his suspension carrying over into his next European encounter.

"I saw Spurs' win over Everton at the weekend and he was fantastic in midfield, creating chances and dictating play".

"He's a fantastic player and we will miss him".

He said: "Last year we got off to a bad start, which didn't help us".

Freiburg's Yoric Ravet, who had initially been booked for the tackle, was sent off for the foul on Schmelzer after the video assistant referee spotted the midfielder had gone in studs up.
