Match Betting (1x2)

Tottenham Hotspur would have pencilled a potential four points from clashes against Olympiacos and Bayern Munich, although Spurs threw away a two-goal lead against their Greek opponents and worse was to come when they played the German champions.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were humbled 7-2 in that clash, although the bookies still think that Tottenham are past the post for this encounter, with Paddy Power going 1/5 that the London side get back on track against a Red Star side who bagged a win in their last group match.

The Serbian team did trail by a goal at home to Olympiacos, although they managed to rally and win the game by a 3-1 scoreline, with Unibet going 13/1 that they pull off a shock which would really have Spurs staring down the barrel.

Red Star might fancy their chances of beating the same opponents on home soild and it might therefore pay to consider this game being drawn.

After all, four points from the Belgrade side would mean they have seven compared to Spurs’ two and you can get 6/1 that this clash ends all square which is far more attractive than the price about the home side.

First Goalscorer

Harry Kane is always trading as favourite to score first when Tottenham have these kind of opponents, with the striker trading at 5/2 with William Hill to score the opening goal of the game.

Kane will be on penalty duties and it’s perfectly possible that he can score from the spot considering that Red Star will be defending at all costs, although we actually prefer the 4/1 about Son Heung-Min.

The South Korean star opened the scoring against Bayern Munich and we think he could be a big danger in that number ten role, while Dele Alli is now looking to make his mark on the new season and you can get 6/1 about someone who has recently been left out of the England squad.

Asian Handicap

There seems to be a consensus that Tottenham will win this clash although it could be a nervy match for the home side considering they will be desperate to get three points on the board.

Spurs are 3/10 with a -1 handicap at Unibet, while some might fancy the 7/10 about Pochettino’s side with a -1.5 handicap which means they would need to enjoy a two goal winning margin or better.

However, we’re erring towards looking at a bet on Red Star Belgrade on the Asian Handicap. They only trailed 1-0 against Bayern Munich for a long part of the game before losing the clash 3-0.

BetVictor have 5/4 about Red Star +1.5 and it means that Tottenham landing a one-goal margin of victory would see them over the line in this clash, while there’s also the chance to back them at 13/17 with a +2 start.

This bet would mean you get money back if the visitors lose by two goals, while anything better from that side and you would profit with this bet.

Both Teams to Score

The bookies are erring towards the possibility that both teams will not score in this clash and it’s fair to say that Red Star Belgrade have traditionally struggled away from home in Europe compared to their performances in front of their own supporters.

The “No” option on the BTTS market is available at 37/40 with BetVictor and this would cover the goalless draw along with any Tottenham victory that also involves the home side keeping a clean sheet.

Spurs will want to run a tight ship after conceding seven goals against Bayern, although those that think Red Star could be good for at least one goal can back BTTS Yes at odds of 17/20 with Paddy Power.

Over / Under Goals

The bookies aren’t expecting this to be a low-scoring affair, with thirteen goals being bagged in the past two Spurs Champions League matches. The previous Tottenham matches have been lively affairs and Over 2.5 Goals is trading at 4/9 although those looking for a bigger price can back Over 3.5 Goals at a tasty 57/50.

When it comes to Under 3.5 Goals, you can get 8/11 and that means you would need three goals or less to be scored.

Correct Score

Pochettino simply needs a comprehensive win in the Champions League, with Unibet going 7/1 about Tottenham winning by a 3-0 scoreline and we can see them outclassing their Serbian opponents over ninety minutes.

If you want to go bigger on Spurs, then a 4-0 victory is available at 12/1 with BetVictor and we know that the home side are capable of running in the goals and giving their supporters something to cheer about.
