Tottenham Hotspur take on Spanish giants Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League at Wembley Stadium this evening.

More than 80,000 fans are expected to be in attendance for the sold out group-stage fixture on Wednesday (October 3), and it promises to be a mouth-watering tie.

Kick off for the game is at 8pm, and supporters are anticipated to start travelling to the ground from 4pm onwards.

Travel routes into Wembley are expected to be heavily congested because of the match, and delays on roads and public transport are expected both before and after the match.

'Absolute garbage' - Manchester United and Everton fans livid with Spurs as match day changed

The TfL Twitter account warned those going to the game of delays earlier today.

The tweet said: “TONIGHT: @wembleystadium is hosting the @ChampionsLeague match between @SpursOfficial and @FCBarcelona , ko 8pm. Expect delays in the area before and after the match, particularly on the A406.”

We will bring you the latest updates for travelling to and from the game in our live blog below.

Uh oh...

No service on the Metropolitan Line between Rickmansworth and Amersham / Chesham while TfL fix a signal failure at Amersham. There is a good service on the rest of the line. Hopefully this clears up by the time fans go home if they live up that way.

There’s some slow traffic on the A404 High Road both ways from A4005 Bridgewater Road to A479 Wembley Hill Road. Kick off just a little more than half an hour away so hopefully you’re queuing up to get into the stadium and not to park.

Delays closer to the stadium

There are severe delays closer to the stadium at A4088 Forty Avenue Westbound between A407 High Road and Barn Rise. Looks like you can expect to wait 13 minutes more than usual to get through there.

Kick off in less than an hour!

Congestion near Neasden

Queues between the A406 North Circular Road northbound from A407 High Road to A4088 (Neasden Interchange).

Good service on Underground

All lines on the Tube are running a good service right now, although you’re unlikely to get a seat on the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines

Relax - kick off is 90 minutes away!

One Spurs fan has found the funny side of being stuck in traffic.

He has since said he arrived in good time!

Plan ahead as queues form

Queues are forming on many of the main roads around the stadium, such as the North Circular and Harrow Road.

Motorways running 'free of incident'

Some of the main motorways which many fans will use to get to Wembley Stadium are running freely at the moment, Highways England has said.

Severe delays

If you’re coming off the A40 at Northolt beware there are severe delays of 20 minutes on Mandeville Road northbound between Willow Tree Lane and Eastcote Lane North. The average speed there is five mph right now.

Harrow Road is slow between Scrubs Lane and the North Circular at Harrow Road Underpass.

Already some queues forming

Traffic is lining up on A4089 Ealing Road both ways from Alperton Station to Wembley Central Station. The gates at Wembley opened at 6pm so there is still plenty of time until the 8pm kick off.

What roads will be congested?

With kick off fast approaching, if you’re thinking about heading to Wembley by car it’s expected the A406, A1, A40, Harrow Road, Wembley High Road and roads around the stadium will be heavily congested.

Amended train timetable running

Chiltern Railways, which serves Wembley Stadium, is running an amended timetable this afternoon and evening because of the Champions League fixture.

The changes are necessary in order to provide sufficient additional train capacity for passengers travelling to Wembley, the train company has said.

The planned changes to evening peak services are;

  • 16.42 Marylebone - Aylesbury Vale Parkway will be formed of 2 carriages instead of 3.
  • 16.50 Marylebone - Oxford will be formed of 5 carriages instead of 6.
  • 17.11 Marylebone - Aylesbury will be formed of 4 carriages instead of 5.
