Charlie Nicholas' predictions for this week's Champions League matches

Real Madrid's first ever trip to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Wednesday will come as a welcome distraction to the European and Liga holders in the midst of their worst domestic run of results in five years.

Tottenham are level on seven points with Real Madrid in Group H after the sides shared a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu earlier this month.

But Zidane does not believe Tottenham's formation will be a big factor in Wednesday's game, although he admires the work Pochettino is doing at the Premier League club. We must play with freedom and enjoy the game. There is always pressure, but despite that we're not going to lose our heads. "We need to assess him tomorrow and after tomorrow and then take a decision". We must remember that we must play with freedom and enjoy the game, because if not this, it is hard to show your real quality. We have seen that in the away game. They'll hopefully be more expansive than their recent displays. "It's a great stage to play on against great opposition", he said. Hamstrings take a long time to settle down fully, even if he does feel fit to play.

"Unfortunately I won't be able to play tomorrow, but it's a attractive stadium and it will be a great spectacle".

Los Angeles Chargers hang tough, but fall to Patriots in Foxborough
The Chargers probably aren't good enough to overcome coaching and special teams blunders against a team like the Patriots. The Chargers jumped out to a 7-0 lead when Melvin Gordon ripped off an 87-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
