Tottenham Prediction – Can Tottenham clinch top two finish?

Jose Mourinho’s new reign at Tottenham started on a positive note as Spurs recorded a 3-2 win away at West Ham but as predicted, Tottenham’s susceptibility at the back was once again exposed by The Hammers with the margin of victory being slimmer than it perhaps should have been.

Nevertheless, a good start for Tottenham under Mourinho and now they turn their attentions to the Champions League where the north London club sit in 2nd place and 5 points behind Group B leaders, Bayern Munich ahead of Matchday 5.

Spurs won’t catch the Germans now with just 2 matches remaining of the group phase but the hosts can do themselves a huge favour by winning this return clash against Olympiakos to confirm their place in the knockout stages of the competition.

Following last season’s ultimate disappointment when they lost in the Champions League final to Liverpool, Tottenham’s campaign this season got off to a poor start as they drew 2-2 at Olympiakos and suffered a heavy 7-2 loss at home to Bayern Munich but they’ve since registered back-to-back wins against Red Star Belgrade home and away to place themselves in pole position to qualify for the next phase.

Olympiakos Prediction – Can Olympiakos make late claim for Europa League?

Sitting bottom of Group B with just 1 point under their belts and 2 points adrift of closest rivals, Red Star Belgrade, Olympiakos’s best chances of further participation in Europe this season seems to be gaining 3rd place and qualifying for the knockout stages of the secondary European competition as they also trail Tottenham by 6 points prior to this Matchday 5 clash in London.

Olympiakos’s point came on Matchday 1 when they held tonight’s opponents, Tottenham, to a 2-2 draw at their Stadio Georgios Karaiskáki, but the wheels have well and truly fallen off in their subsequent 3 matches in Group B.

The visitors have suffered 3 defeats on the trot with a 3-1 loss away at Red Star Belgrade, 3-2 at home to Bayern Munich and a 2-0 loss away in Germany in the corresponding fixture, so confidence levels are likely to be fragile at best for this encounter against Tottenham.

Results away from home have also been ordinary for the Greek outfit as they’ve managed to collect just 2 away wins out of their last 8 matches on their travels which were at Istanbul Basaksehir and Krasnodar during the qualifying rounds but away at Tottenham here may well present further problems for Olympiakos.


Key-Facts – Tottenham vs Olympiakos

  • Tottenham have won their last 2 group matches on the trot in Group B
  • Olympiakos have registered just 2 away wins out of their last 8 matches in the CL
  • The previous meeting between these two sides ended in a 2-2 draw in Madrid


Betting Tips Verdict

Tottenham know a win here would seal their place in the knockout rounds and they should also cover the handicap here too.
