Red Star Belgrade vs Tottenham Prediction
With a win and two losses in Group B, FK Crvena Zvezda have skipped past Olympiacos on the ladder and are currently third, behind second-placed Tottenham. The hosts are also on a stellar winning streak back in their domestic campaign where they have been tasting nothing but success in their previous six games. The most recent of which was a 3-1 win over Backa Topola.
On the other hand, Tottenham have been struggling to get into the groove. Their only victory in their last five fixtures in all competitions came against this very same foe at home by a whopping 5-0 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that Spurs have been at the worst on the road this season. Their previous trip across Europe saw them salvage no more than a point against Olympiacos. While their most recent domestic outing witnessed them at the losing end against the in-form Liverpool.
Nevertheless, it goes without saying that Tottenham are a far more experienced and competitive side as opposed to their foes. The aforementioned was certainly evident in their maiden clash last month with the English outfit slotting five unanswered goals past them. As such, Tottenham are the favorites to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Be that as it may, the visitors can rule out any hopes of this clash turning into a walk in the park. The Stars have been resilient in their clashes on home soil. They have picked the win in all of their previous five games here on the trot. One of which, was against Olympiacos which they won by a very convincing 3-1 scoreline.
Meanwhile, Tottenham, as previously mentioned, have been a nervous bunch in their outings, and have just one clean sheet from their last seven outings, that too against fourth-tier side Colchester.
Given that the hosts have been scoring no less than three goals in each of their last four home clashes, count on Crvena Zvezda to put up a good fight and to bag a consolation goal at the least in this one.
