Bayern expecting challenging opponent in Tottenham, ahead of Champions League clash

(SOUNDBITE) (German) BAYERN MUNICH COACH NIKO KOVAC, SAYING: "I personally think it (the game) will be a mix.

They are playing in their own stadium on their island, that means they will be pushed by the fans.

And of course the team they are up against is Bayern Munich.

They will certainly be giving it their all from the first minute.

They are going to try and put us under pressure which is what a lot of the British teams do when they are playing at home.

But aside from that there is the actual football element.

The football that Tottenham plays is very creative, very good to look at, very innovative.

And this will be awaiting us tomorrow so we have to see that we are ready both physically and mentally but are also tactically able to answer what they throw at us tomorrow." STORY: Tottenham Hotspur's philosophy under manager Mauricio Pochettino should be held up as a beacon for clubs competing in Europe and is proof that patience is ultimately rewarded, Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac said on Monday.

Despite a limited transfer budget, Spurs have qualified for the Champions League for four consecutive seasons under Pochettino and they exceeded expectations by reaching their maiden final last year, finishing runners-up to Liverpool.

Spurs' biggest threat is Harry Kane, who has scored 160 goals in all competitions in the past five seasons, and Kovac said he saw similarities in his own striker Robert Lewandowski, who has finished as Bundesliga's top scorer four times.

Kovac confirmed defender Lucas Hernandez, who was injured in their last Bundesliga match at Paderborn, was not involved in training while full back David Alaba and winger Ivan Perisic would be fit to play on Tuesday.
