Luis Suarez has great record against Tottenham

Tottenham host European giants Barcelona on Wednesday night in the Champions League group stages and are under some pressure after beginning the group with a defeat to Inter Milan.

Spurs will come up against some of the best players in world football in midweek, with all eyes likely to be on Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi to run the show.

But Barcelona centre-forward Luis Suarez is perhaps the player the North London club need to fear most, as he has an incredible record against them in recent encounters.

Suarez is now renowned as one of the world-class strikers in the world and has already proven he can terrorise Premier League defences in the past.

He has managed just three goals in his nine appearances in all competitions this season and is not quite on top form, but it would be no surprise to see him at his very best at Wembley.

Spurs are without key centre-back Jan Vertonghen for the Champions League due to injury, meaning it could be left to Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez to try limit Suarez’s influence in front of goal.
