Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde believes they've drawn a difficult Champions League group.
"It's a difficult group, it's possibly the most difficult that we could have had," Valverde admitted in his pre-match press conference.
"There will be no respite, although in the same breath it's also a very attractive group.
"They are teams with great history but we have the belief we will progress."
"They're playing at a great level in recent years," he confirmed.
"Tottenham are a great blend of physical and technical potential and were one of the toughest opponents from the second pot."
