Team News: Fernando Llorente up front alongside Harry Kane as Tottenham Hotspur face Real Madrid

Mauricio Pochettino opts for a front two of Harry Kane and Fernando Llorente ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League trip to Real Madrid.

Mauricio Pochettino has opted to pair Harry Kane with Fernando Llorente for Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League trip to Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

England international Harry Winks keeps his position in the team due to Dele Alli's suspension and injuries to Victor Wanyama and Moussa Dembele.

Moussa Sissoko replaces Son Heung-min in the middle of the park, while Serge Aurier is preferred to Kieran Trippier at right-back.

England left-back Danny Rose is back in the squad, making the bench after a nine-month injury lay-off.

Real Madrid revert to a familiar-looking XI after resting some of their key men in Saturday's 2-1 win at neighbours Getafe.

Former Spurs midfielder Luka Modric is back, but there is no place for the injured Gareth Bale.

Karim Benzema starts up front, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, for the first time in the Champions League this season.

Real Madrid: Navas, Achraf, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Isco, Ronaldo, Benzema
Subs: Casilla, Nacho, Theo, Lucas, Llorente, Asensio, Ceballos

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Aurier, Sissoko, Dier, Winks, Eriksen, Kane, Llorente
Subs: Vorm, Foyth, Trippier, Rose, Walker-Peters, Son, Georgiou
