Keane backs Spurs to beat Man City in Champions League

Robbie Keane believes that Tottenham Hotspur can beat Manchester City in the Champions League.

The former Spurs striker scored a genuinely superb goal on Saturday as a Spurs legends team took on Inter Forever, lobbing Julio Cesar with his back to the stopper.

The Republic of Ireland international is Spurs’ 11th-highest goalscorer, having enjoyed two spells at the club, and he insists that Mauricio Pochettino’s men have every chance of beating the Premier League champions in the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition.

Speaking in the mixed zone after the 5-4 thriller, he said: “It’s going to be a tough one because you’ve got two fantastic teams.

“People will say City are the favourites because of how they’re playing at the moment but this Tottenham team can beat anyone on their day.

“They’re a difficult team to play against and have some top, top players. It’ll certainly be an intriguing game and I’m looking forward to it.”

Spurs have never progressed beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League and face a significant task if they are to overcome City.

Pep Guardiola’s side racked up 100 points last season and are continuing to fight for the Premier League title, alongside Jurgen Klopp’s exciting Liverpool team.

City won 1-0 at Wembley earlier this season, in a game that was played on the remnants of an NFL pitch.
