Tottenham are preparing to break the British attendance record for a Champions League match against Monaco on Wednesday evening and fans are excited to be part of the feat.
The north Londoners are to play all their European home fixtures at Wembely this season as work is carried out on their new home stadium.
The club have already sold over 80,000 tickets for the fixture, a figure that will represent the biggest crowd ever seen at a Champions League home game in Britain.
Supporters on Twitter have shown their excitement at watching their side take on Europe’s elite at England’s national home.

Spurs have only won one game at Wembley since it was reopened after being redeveloped in 2007, most recently losing 2-0 against Chelsea in the 2015 Capital One Cup final.
The north Londoners progressed well in their last venture into the Champions League though, reaching the quarter finals in 2011 under then-manager Harry Redknapp.
Tottenham’s arch rivals Arsenal underwent the same move from their home stadium to Wembley between 1998 to 1999.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are joined in Group E by Bayer Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow as well as French outfit Monaco.
In other Tottenham news, Spurs have sealed a £19.5million deal.
