It’s been a somewhat crazy Champions League journey for Spurs this season after just three group games. They travel to Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday night in a bid to make it back-to-back wins in the competition.
Spurs have certainly failed to pick up from where they left off last season in Europe. After narrowly losing out to Liverpool in the final last time out, they’ve been nervously making their way through the group stage matches this time around.
An opening day draw at Olympiacos was followed by a stunning 7-2 loss at home to Bayern Munich. Spurs did, however, manage to get back on track soon after. They beat Red Star 5-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month.
They face the Serbian side once again in the return meeting, hoping to keep up the pace with group leaders Bayern.
The hosts have just one win to their name, beating the ten men of Olympiacos in between defeats at Bayern and Spurs. They can be backed at 4/1 to pick up their second win of the campaign.
Substitutions Milos Vulic and Richmond Boakye were among the goals in their only win. The former is 12/1 to grab the opening goal of the game on Wednesday evening. And the latter can be backed at 8/1 to score the game’s opener.
A draw between the pair is currently available at 3/1. But the visitors are strong favourites to win at 4/6.
Spurs will take huge confidence from their meeting with Red Star two weeks ago. It’s currently 40/1 for Mauricio Pochettino’s side to run out as 5-0 winners once again.
Doubles from Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min helped the hosts to a comfortable victory, with Erik Lamela also on target.
Kane is available at 13/5 if he can shake off an illness and score the opening goal of the game. His fellow forward Son is currently 9/2 to score first.
The away side have been given odds of 9/4 to once again win to nil, and odds of 10/3 to win both halves.
Spurs will also be keen to see through the 90 minutes with another clean sheet in order to boost confidence at the back. They can be backed at 7/4 to do so.
Red Star have been given odds of 13/2 to upset the status quo and win a game involving goals from both teams. And it’s 21/10 for a Spurs result with both teams scoring.
