Tottenham vs. Crvena Zvezda preview 2019 take on the Red-Whites
Crvena Zvezda started just their third UEFA Champions League campaign of the decade with a 3-0 away defeat to Bayern Munich. However, that was to be expected given the stature of the Bundesliga giants. The Serbian side did, however, manage to win their most winnable game against Olympiakos with a 3-1 victory at home.
That result currently puts them in second place in Group B and they have an excellent chance at gaining more points against the faltering Tottenham Hotspur, where even snatching one point out of a possible six against last year’s Champions League finalists would be a good result.

Tottenham vs Crvena Zvezda preview 2019 take on the Spurs
So far, it’s been a season to forget for Tottenham. They first squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 away to Olympiakos on the opening day of the campaign. Mauricio Pochettino’s men then suffered an embarrassing 7-2 defeat at home to Bayern Munich. They will now be desperate for two wins out of two against Crvena, but it won’t be easy given how their season has been unraveling.
They have only won two out of their 10 games in all competitions since their opening day league win over Aston Villa. Things could get worse on Matchday three. The Spurs are +3500 to win the UEFA Champions League. Can they keep up with the other 2019-2020 Champions League favorites?
Tottenham have only won twice in their last eight Champions League group stage games since the start of the 2017/18 season.
Tottenham have conceded an average of 2.375 goals per game in their last eight Champions League group stage games.
