Tottenham Prediction – Can Tottenham re-discover their mojo?

Recent results suggest Tottenham are a long way from re-discovering their mojo as they continue to produce underwhelming results in the Premier League, with their most recent match against bottom club Watford ending in a disappointing 1-1 draw at home, leaving Spurs outside of the top six in 7th place.

In truth, Watford deserved to win that game, and having suffered recent heavy defeats to Bayern Munich 7-2 at home on Matchday 2 of the Champions League and an embarrassing 3-0 loss away from home to Brighton in the Premier League, Mauricio Pochettino’s side resemble a mere shadow of their former selves.

Indeed, Tottenham have managed to record just 2 wins out of their last 11 matches in all competitions which were both in the Premier League with victories over Crystal Palace 4-0 and a 2-1 win against Southampton, but results in the Champions League have also seen a dramatic decline.

Last season’s losing finalists in this competition have won just 1 of their last 6 Champions League ties and without a win so far in this season’s campaign (2-2 v Galatasaray and 2-7 v Bayern Munich) along with losing their last 3 home ties on the trot, Tottenham don’t deserve to be priced at such low odds for this clash.

Crvena Zvezda Prediction – Can Crvena Zvezda take advantage of Spurs slump?

A win and a loss so far in their opening two matches in Group B has placed Crvena Zvezda (or Red Star Belgrade if you prefer), in 2nd spot and 3 points behind group leaders, Bayern Munich, ahead of this week’s Matchday 3 action.

The Serbian visitors will also be in confident mood as they make their way to London for this important clash on the back of a 6-match winning streak in all competitions which includes a vital 3-1 home win over Greek side, Olympiakos, on Matchday 2 of the Champions League.

Having also scored a total of 21 goals from these last 6 matches, Crvena Zvezda represent a serious threat to their hosts, Tottenham, who have simply failed to live up to last season’s exploits in all departments and look decidedly suspect at the back too.

Crvena Zvezda have also lost just 1 of their last 6 Champions League ties overall, which was their opening group match away at Bayern Munich which ended in a 3-0 defeat, but they’ll take heart from their wins over Copenhagen and Young Boys in the qualifying rounds and fancy their chances of making life difficult for Tottenham on Tuesday night.


Key-Facts – Tottenham v Crvena Zvezda

  • Tottenham have won just 2 out of their last 11 matches in all competitions
  • Tottenham have won just 1 of their last 6 matches in the Champions League
  • Crvena Zvezda have won their last 6 matches on the trot in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict

By rights, Tottenham should win this one but recent performances suggest this tie could be a lot closer than many people would anticipate.
