Champions League
Date:  Tuesday, 26 November 2019

Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).

In a surprise turn of events, Jose Mourinho has taken over the managerial reigns of Tottenham. A gaffer, who is no less than a veteran in guiding teams to Champions League glory.

With Olympiacos yet to prove themselves worthy of a ticket to the next round, Spurs are likely to grant Mourinho his maiden European win, as a manager at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, no later than this week.

Tottenham vs Olympiacos Prediction

Despite making it all the way to the final of the Champions League last time around, it goes without saying that Tottenham are yet to emulate their previous winning mentality. The hosts are currently in contention to grab the final ticket of progression and are sitting second on the table, four points behind table-toppers Bayern.

It is also worth mentioning that the home side have not been faring any better back in their domestic campaign and are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder.

Be that as it may, it needs saying that Spurs have been at the losing end just twice on home soil this season. Furthermore, to their defense, one of those defeats was against the mighty Bayern Munich.

On the other hand, Olympiacos have not got off to the best of starts in Group B. The visitors are on a three-match losing streak at the moment and have slumped to the bottom of the cluster as well, with no more than a measly point to their name.

In addition, the away side have just one win to boast of from their previous five outings in all competitions. With both home advantage at hand, and the arrival of Jose Mourinho in the dugout, the odds are certainly stacked in favor of a comfortable win for Tottenham in this one.

Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the hosts have scored two goals or more in each of their group clashes so far. Meanwhile, Olympiacos have conceded five goals from their previous two European outings alone. Given that their last h2h meeting also witnessed over 2.5 goals on the charts, it is certainly well within reason to expect a high scoring affair to unfold this week.
