Before we settle in for game time, I've got a burning question that I want to ask all of the Spurs fans out there: How much of a chance do you give us to get a result tonight? Obviously, even if Cristiano Ronaldo and others are not fit while Tom Huddlestone, Aaron Lennon, and Gareth Bale are, we're underdogs. Slight underdogs if all of that is the case, but underdogs nonetheless. However, as we all know, all things are possible with Welsh Jesus, VDV, and Lennon. So, how much of a chance do Tottenham Hotspur have of getting a result from Real Madrid tonight?

For my money, Huddlestone and Gonzalo Higuain are the x-factors. I am almost certain that both Bale and Ronaldo will start. I am fairly certain that Huddlestone and Higuain will not start, but will be on the bench. The starting lineup/bench placement of those two players is what will most affect my optimism, or lack thereof. How about you guys?
