Tottenham v Red Star Belgrade Betting Tips & Predictions
Tottenham Hotspur might have reached the 2019 Champions League final although their prospects of faring well in this season’s European Cup look fairly bleak after two matches played.
Spurs firstly let a two-goal lead slip away at Olympiacos before a 7-2 drubbing at home to Bayern Munich, with the German champions running riot during the second half as the home team crumbled and couldn’t stop the flow of goals.
Now comes a double header against Red Star Belgrade and these two matches will have a serious bearing on whether Mauricio Pochettino’s side will make the last sixteen of this competition.
Pochettino will still feel confident that his team can qualify behind Bayern and the London outfit are strong favourites to claim a victory in this game, with Spurs having had the international break to take stock of affairs.
Red Star came from behind to beat Olympiacos in their last group game, although the Serbian side did only get in front when their opponents had been reduced to ten men.
In addition, they are a different animal on home soil and often show frailties on the road, losing their opener 3-0 away to Bayern and failing to create meaningful chances against elite opponents.
It’s also worth noting that Tottenham were the better team against their German opponents before losing the match by a 7-2 scoreline. Son Heung-Min was especially lively and we’re expecting another fast start on this occasion.
We’ll plump for Spurs to lead this clash at half-time and full-time. The personnel within the squad is largely the same as the players that engineered that brilliant Champions League adventure last season and they’re still arguably the third-best team in England.
