Tottenham Hotspur vs Marseille: How to watch UEFA Champions League clash on TV, live stream, team news

Tottenham Hotspur kick off their Champions League campaign on Tuesday as they take on French title challengers Olympique de Marseille on home soil.

Spurs will be eager to make a strong start in Europe, mirroring their early season success in the Premier League.

After beating Fulham on Saturday, Antonio Conte’s side are unbeaten in their opening six league matches and sit third in the table.

Now they’ll be hoping to maintain momentum in a switch of competition, but it won’t be easy as Marseille too are unbeaten in league matches this term.

Winning five and drawing one in Ligue 1, Les Olympiens have piled on the pressure for league leaders Paris Saint-Germain and are oozing with confidence.

Marseille top scorers Alexis Sanchez and Nuno Tavares - who have netted three each - are both ex-Arsenal players, so there could be a little extra on the line come game day.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Spurs vs Marseille, including the latest team news, the kick-off time, and how to watch the clash on live UK television.
