Latest Tottenham news: Tottenham could host Champions League quarter-final at new stadium

The Evening Standard reports that Tottenham could host the Champions League quarter-final second leg.

The report adds that Tottenham and UEFA are reluctant to inaugurate the stadium with such a high profile game.

The first leg of the quarter-finals falls on April 9 and 10, and the report claims that Brighton could be our first visitors on April 7.

However, that fixture could be postponed should the Seagulls defeat Millwall in the FA Cup tie on 17 March.

No problems with the second leg

The report adds that Tottenham should have no problem hosting the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final as it falls on April 16 and 17.

Tottenham host Huddersfield in the Premier League prior to this tie, which leaves the door open for the Champions League tie to be held at the new ground.

The dates for the two test events haven’t been finalised, and the report adds that Haringey Council are yet to be informed of the plans from the London club.

Mauricio Pochettino sounded confident of playing the quarter-final in the new stadium and spoke after our 1-0 win over Borussia Dortmund (h/t Evening Standard):

“I expect to play [the quarter-final] at the new stadium. I was talking yesterday with Daniel [Levy, Spurs chairman] and he was very positive.”

Tottenham return to Premier League action at the weekend with a trip to Southampton. However, Mauricio Pochettino will not be on the touchline as he was handed a two-match ban for his altercation with Mike Dean.
