Tottenham Hotspur hand a debut to deadline day signing Serge Aurier in tonight’s Champions League opener.
The Ivory Coast international starts at right-back.
Fellow new boy Davinson Sanchez also starts, while Juan Foyth and Fernando Llorente are on the bench.
Spurs are without the suspended Dele Alli, who serves the first game of his three-match ban for a red card in last season’s Europa League.
There are three changes to the side that beat Everton last weekend. Heung-min Son, Mousa Dembele and Aurier replace Alli, Kieran Trippier and Moussa Sissoko.
Erik Lamela (hip), Danny Rose (knee) and Victor Wanyama (knee) all remain sidelined.
Starting XI: Lloris (C), Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Son, Kane
