Tottenham face European giants Bayern Munich in Group B of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Here, the PA news agency takes a closer look at the German side.

Champions League fun in London

Bayern have generally enjoyed their visits to London, and specifically north London, in recent years. The Bundesliga side were paired with Arsenal for four seasons out of five between 2013 and 2017 and knocked the Gunners out three times – with the fourth set of games taking place in the group stage. They recorded 2-0, 3-1 and 5-1 wins at the Emirates, while they also won their fifth Champions League title across town at Wembley in 2013.

European Giants

That success at Wembley in the all-German affair with Borussia Dortmund cemented their position as a European heavyweight. Only Real Madrid, Liverpool and AC Milan have won the European Cup more than their five times, while they can also add a UEFA Cup, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup to their impressive haul of trophies. With 29 Bundesliga titles to boot, Bayern really are one of the continent's most dominant sides.

Coutinho leading a new era

Spurs know all about their German opponents after they met in the pre-season Audi Cup tournament, which they won on penalties after a 2-2 draw. But this will be just their fifth competitive meeting and first in 36 years. Tottenham progressed past Bayern in the third round of the UEFA Cup in 1983, a 2-0 home win enough to send them through 2-1 on aggregate. The German side were winners in the previous season, though, with a 4-1 home win doing the job in the Cup Winners' Cup.
