Wednesday 6 November: 8pm

Live on BT Sport

Tottenham won the reverse fixture 5-0 but are still in trouble in this Champions League group. Red Star Belgrade have a fearsome home record and a win for them on Wednesday would turn this group upside down.

Latest Odds

Tottenham start this game second in Group B but only a point ahead of their opponents. They failed to win their first two group games but then hammered Red Star 5-0 at home. The odds on them qualifying for the last sixteen are 1/9 (1.11) at BetVictor. That price will shorten dramatically if they can go to Belgrade and win this match.

It’s 7/10 (1.7) at Ladbrokes on a Tottenham away win. However, their away record is not inspiring nor is their consistency at present. No away Premier League wins since January and their only game on the road in this group saw them draw at Olympiakos. Unibet wil give you odds of 3/1 (4.0) on this game being drawn which would be a decent result for Spurs.

Red Star are 11/1 (12.0) at Betfair to make it into the knock-out stages. They will go two points clear of Tottenham if winning this match. Their only home game so far has seen them beat Olympiakos 3-1. They have just one loss in their last 12 home Champions League games. Last season they beat Liverpool at home and drew with Napoli. It’s 4/1 (5.0) at Paddy Power that they beat Tottenham.

Head-to-Head

There have been three previous meetings between the two clubs. All three have been home wins but never have both teams scored. A trip to Coral will see you receive odds of 6/10 (1.6) on that stat making its first appearance in this match.

Team News

Harry Kane missed the game at Everton on Sunday but may return for this match. It’s not known if Heung-min Son will play after the incident in the dying moments of that game on Sunday.

Prediction

This won’t be easy for Tottenham in what will be a hostile environment. Red Star have two of their final three games at home and will be a lot more competitive than the game in London. A bet on a draw and both teams to score has odds of 4/1 (5.0) at Betfred.
