Spurs vs Olympiacos – UCL Tips


Tottenham Hotspur vs Olympiacos

Who? Tottenham Hotspur vs Olympiacos in Group B of Matchweek 5 of the UEFA Champions League 2019/20.

Where? Tottenham Hotspur Stadum, London

When? 20:00 GMT, Tuesday 26th November 2019

Overview

It’s Jose Mourinho’s first Champions League match back as manager as Tottenham host Olympiacos in Group B, with the hosts able to secure qualification with a win.

Tottenham Hotspur

The Portuguese head coach got off to a perfect start in his first game in charge of the North London club. Spurs went 3-0 up against West Ham and looked deadly going forward, however a late surge from the Hammers meant they have to settle for a 3-2 win. A quick turnaround means he has had just two days to work on his new team ahead of this important Champions League match. Spurs have been very unconvincing this season and yet they are in pole position to grab the second and final spot into the Round of 16. We expect a steady win for the hosts.

Olympiacos

For the Greek giants, Olympiacos are looking to win their first Super League in three seasons. The last two titles have gone to AEK Athens and PAOK. The latter are currently level on points with Spurs’ visitors in the league, having not lost this season. In the Champions League, however, it has been a disappointing campaign to date. They managed an impressive comeback to draw against Spurs in the reverse fixture However, the away defeat to Red Star Belgrade in Matchweek 2 really scuppered any thin chances of getting out the group.

Team News

Tottenham (2/7* to Win): The hosts are without goalkeepers Michel Vorm and Hugo Lloris. Forward Erik Lamela and defender Jan Vertonghen are doubts for this tie. We expect a similar line-up to Saturday’s win against West Ham.

Olympiacos (9/1* to Win): The away side will be without experienced midfielder Lazaros Christodoulopoulos for this tie. Pape Abou Cisse, Leonardo Koutris and goal-scoring midfielder Konstantinos Fortounis are also ruled out.
