Kane keen to see if Spurs are the Real deal in Europe

London: Tottenham Hotspur are looking forward to seeing how they measure up against Champions League holders Real Madrid in the group stages of this season's tournament, the Premier League side's striker Harry Kane has said.

"It's a great draw. You expect to play the best in Europe in the Champions League and it's exciting for us," Kane said on the club's website. “We look forward to these games. You want to test yourself against the best and Real Madrid are the best at the moment.”

Tottenham were handed a tough Group H draw against 11-time winners Real, German side Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia from Cyprus.

 “I remember the game against Real Madrid at the (White Hart Lane in 2011. I'm sure Wembley will be packed for the matches... Our aim is to win every game and this will be a good test."

The Spanish champions beat Tottenham 5-0 on aggregate when the two sides met in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2011. Spurs will host Real at Wembley this time, however, their temporary home until the completion of their new stadium.

Tottenham returned to Europe's elite competition last season after a five-year absence, but failed to progress to the knockout stages, finishing third in their group.
