After a tough trip to Everton on Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur visit the Red Star Stadium as they take on Red Star Belgrade in a crucial Champions League clash.
A win for Tottenham will boost their qualification hopes whilst Red Star can leapfrog their visitors into second in Group B with victory.

Red Star Belgrade have no injury concerns to report with a full squad available for selection.
Tottenham will welcome captain, Harry Kane back after illness forced him to miss their 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday.
Jan Vertonghen is also set to return from a hamstring injury that also kept him sidelined at the weekend, whilst Hugo Lloris is their only definite absentee with an elbow injury.
- Red Star Belgrade have lost two of their three previous meetings with Tottenham, although they did win their only previous meeting at home in December 1972 in the UEFA Cup.
- None of their previous three meetings saw both teams score in the same fixture, with only the home team managing to do so.
- Tottenham have drawn three of their last seven away Champions League trips – excluding last season’s Final at a neutral venue (W2, D3, L2).
- Red Star are unbeaten in eight of ten previous home meetings with English opposition, with their only home defeats coming against Bolton in the UEFA Cup in 2007-08 UEFA Cup and Arsenal in the 2017-18 Europa League Group Stage. (W6, D2 L2)
It is currently difficult to predict what type of Tottenham team to expect and that is just on form alone, although I am expecting to see a strong reaction to the tough events at Everton and particularly from Son if he features here.
Red Star however are a difficult team to beat at home and given Tottenham’s inconsistent away form, I can see quite a few goals coming here but am going for an away win if Spurs can replicate their showing from a fortnight ago although it will be closer.
Prediction: Red Star Belgrade 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Result: Red Star Belgrade 0-4 Tottenham Hotspur
