Tottenham vs. Red Star Belgrade Match Preview: Under press Poch hoping for response



Tottenham’s stuttering season continued on Saturday as Mauricio Pochettino’s side could only muster a draw against the Premier League’s bottom side Watford.

That result leaves them 13 points behind leaders Liverpool and five points adrift of the top four after nine games.

On Tuesday their attentions will again turn to the Champions League and like their domestic form, results in Europe have been far from inspiring. In fact they’ve been woeful. A solitary point from their opening two games sees them bottom of Group B.

Pochettino odds shortening in Premier League sack race

Letting a two goal lead slip in Greece was a little embarrassing, but then things got a whole lot worse two weeks later losing 7-2, at home, to Bayern Munich. The worst display by any English team in Europe. Defensively they were awful. Torn apart by Bayern’s pace and put to the sword by a ruthless strikeforce.

On another night, though, Spurs could and probably should have had four or five goals of their own. But they didn’t. And now they have it all to do if they’re to make it through to the knockout stage.

Tottenham will look for a convincing win tonight

Red Star Belgrade travel to the Tottenham Stadium having won six consecutive games in all competitions, including a win against Olympiacos in their last Champions League outing. They put in a respectable display in their opening group game at Bayern losing 3-0, and will provide Spurs with one hell of a test.

Harry Kane has two goals in two group games and he’s 23/10 to open the scoring.

Neither side has kept a clean sheet in Europe so far this season so expect goals at the Tottenham Stadium. It’s 10/11 for both teams to score and 7/5 for over 3.5 goals.

Whataretheodds spokesman Spencer James believes this a huge game for Spurs and the future of Pochettino.

“Failure to take all three points here could cost Poch his job. He’s had a torrid start to the season. Levy won’t mess around.”

Despite their run of poor form Spurs are 2/7 to bag all three points – In truth they should do so comfortably. The draw is 11/2 and Red Star are 12/1 to even more misery on Poch and Spurs.
