The Spurs manager has praised the job Zidane has done since he replaced Rafael Benitez as Real Madrid boss in January 2016. "Zidane is a pure talent, but it also represents the work and the sacrifice, the perseverance in search of perfection. It is a test that will tell us where we are".

Tottenham make the daunting trip to the Santiago Bernabeu for a showdown with the Champions League holders in Group H on Tuesday.

"We are going to measure ourselves against the best team in the world", he said.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane celebrates his 100th game in charge at the football club, while Cristiano Ronaldo faces his favourite rival when the Liga Santander Champions travel to play Getafe on Saturday.

Madrid became the first team the retain the trophy in its current guise in June when beating Juventus 4-1 under the watch of Zidane, who also enjoyed success in the competition during his playing days. "The passion is the same as that of a Bielsa team".

In the previous campaign Zidane had the luxury of resting Ronaldo on many occasions in the league, but considering their sluggish start to their title defence, the manager might feel hesitant to do that this time out.

Bale is currently nursing a calf issue while Benzema has a hamstring injury, joining Keylor Navas (Achilles), Marcelo (Thigh) and Mateo Kovacic (partial abductor tear) on the treatment table.
