Tottenham vs Olympiacos
The Champions League is set to return to our screens this week.
Tottenham’s latest clash in Europe’s most high-profile club competition sees them playing host to Greek outfit Olympiacos.
Spurs head into Tuesday’s tie sat 2nd in their Champions League group.
1st spot in Group B is currently occupied by Bayern Munich, and it is likely to remain that way once the group stage draws to a close.
The German powerhouse have already opened up a five-point lead over Spurs, and, with just two group games left to play, it is hard to see that gap diminishing too much.
In terms of the north London outfit securing 2nd spot in Group B, Spurs are four points ahead of 3rd placed Red Star Belgrade.
So, a win on Tuesday would see Tottenham secure their place in the next phase of the CL.
Spurs should really have no trouble seeing off bottom of the group Olympiacos, but it should also be pointed out that the only point the Greek side has earned in this season’s Champions League came against Spurs.
This tie will also be Jose Mourinho’s first European game as Spurs boss.

Spurs confirmed that Ben Davies, who suffered an ankle injury vs West Ham, is unavailable.
Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and Michel Vorm are all continuing rehabilitation.
But on a slightly more positive note, Spurs did state that Tanguy Ndombele and Jan Vertonghen have returned to training with the squad.
