Bayern Munich will travel to North London in order to face Pochettino’s Tottenham in a Champions League derby.

Bundesliga looks like it’s never been as competitive as this season in recent times. All of RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, and Bayern Munich are serious title candidates.

Bayen brought in some backup, mainly Coutinho from Barcelona for the creative department, and Perisic from Inter to provide stability on the left-wing when needed.

However, they lost their defensive cornerstone in Mats Hummels who returned to Dortmund, replacing him with Hernandez from Atletico.

Pavard also joined the young defensive setup, and Bayern look set to go both after the Champions League trophy and the domestic titles.

The Bavarians haven’t conquered Europe since Jupp Heynckens and the 2012/13 season.

Tonight, Bayern will have to face Tottenham and their all-around striker, Harry Kane.

Kovac was full of praise for Kane, putting him in the same tier with Robert Lewandowski. According to FourFourTwo, Kovac said:

“I can say something about Harry Kane but there is no need to do so.

“People sitting in front of me have already said everything there is to say about him, every word is already too much.

“His quality in the Premier League but also in the England squad speaks for itself, he’s sensational.

“He’s a player that can do it all. He is great at keeping the ball, he’s good with his head, there is nothing he cannot do.

“He’s a very strong striker. Him and Lewandowski are probably in the top three, four in the world. That’s the way it is at the moment.

“Both of them are hugely successful and I look forward to seeing out things pan out tomorrow.

“I am going to give my team some information about Harry Kane which I am not going to tell you.”

It’s safe to say that Kovac has a lot of respect for Kane. Tonight we’ll see a clash of two world-class strikers at their best.
