The England international striker is in the line-up at Wembley as Tottenham face a strong side fielded by Zinedine Zidane

Tottenham striker Harry Kane will start against a strong Real Madrid side at Wembley amid rumours linking the England star to the Champions League winners.

Kane missed Spurs's defeat to Manchester United on Saturday with a hamstring injury but will lead the line for Mauricio Pochettino's side against the Liga champions.

Kane 16/5 to score first v Real Madrid

He is joined in the Spurs line-up by England team-mate Dele Alli, who is making his 2017-18 Champions League debut after serving a three-game suspension following a red card against Gent in the Europa League in March.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has chosen a first-choice side to face Spurs, with injury absentees Keylor Navas, Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale the only regulars not in the line-up.

The clubs find themselves tied atop Group H with seven points, even boasting identical records of seven goals scored and two conceded from three matches.
