Success and failure in football are known to be very close to each other. Tottenham Hotspur Football Club fought for the coveted Henkel pot in the Champions League final against Liverpool FC at the beginning of June. Half a year later, the club from the north of the English capital is in a major crisis.
Tottenham vs Red Star Belgrade Today’s Soccer Prediction
The “Lilywhites” won only one of the last seven competitive matches, but made a gross dropouts after another. There is not much left of the tremendous radiance of the past season, so predicting the home side will be anything but easy before the landmark duel in Group B between Tottenham and Red Star Belgrade.
Because coach Mauricio Pochettino’s team have only one point left after two games, a home win against one of their two direct rivals for second place is virtually essential. Whether the cracked self-confidence, which was clearly recognizable in the Premier League at the weekend, but sufficient to wary strong guests to put in the barriers, is an open question.
Anyway, we’re expecting an intense and thrilling encounter at the new stadium of the capital club on Tuesday evening, in which the Serbs may even get the unexpected chance to cause a surprise. In our eyes, Tottenham Vs. Red Star Belgrade – due to the odds offered – the hint that the underdog, at least in the first half, stands up well and at least considers a draw to be a lucrative option.
Tottenham – Statistics & Current Form
Played, consistent, solid – these three attributes would describe the team of last year’s Champions League finalist Tottenham actually short and concise. In the current season, however, the terms “unfocused”, “inconstant” and “vulnerable” are significantly better.
So far, the Londoners are not getting any momentum in the current game year and are already threatening to lose many of their goals at this early stage.
Although the “Lilywhites” ranked seventh in the Premier League, the 12 points collected, combined with the fact that Liverpool’s runners-up have more than doubled the number on the credit side, logically do not match the own, increased expectations.
Even worse than the snapshot of the table, however, is the current constitution, because of the disappointing 2: 2 to the Champions League opener at Olympiacos Piraeus, where you gave a comfortable comfortable 2-0 lead reckless, has in recent weeks the great uncertainty kept in check.
The English are currently in a single victory from the recent seven competitive matches. Absolutely low point was certainly the 2-7 clap at the beginning of October against Bayern, who followed a 3-0 defeat in the league in Brighton and another sobering 1-1 before the home crowd at the weekend against taillight Watford, known from Manchester City got eight goals. Also in the League Cup, the Spurs embarrassed and retired after penalties against the fourth division Colchester United.
The confidence on the ground, the playful ease that characterized the Pochettino Elf in the previous year has also been completely lost, even though the squad was even strengthened compared to 2018/2019. It is therefore inevitably a mental problem that is not easy to get out of the world. Consequently, we would be careful between Tottenham and Red Star Belgrade to make a prediction towards the hosts.
The fact is that the encounter has immense significance for the “Lilywhites”. If a win does not jump out in the third attempt either, you would still grace the last place in Group B and stand in the remaining three games with your back to the wall. In the event of an unexpected defeat, the knockout stages would even move into unreachable distance.
The hope for a positive result, however, is the fact that the Spurs have won eight of their season-spanning victories in the last twelve UEFA Champions League home games. The balance in the new stage is with a full sense of achievement and two bankruptcies, however, negative. In general, the North Londoners have not yet completely closed the newly built arena in their hearts. From the past ten home games, there were only three victories.
Hugo Lloris, Giovanni Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon will retire due to injury. A question mark is also behind the use of the Danish midfield strategist Christian Eriksen, who was recently brought into contact with Bayern again and again. Son, Foyth, Davies and Ndombele should definitely be in the starting eleven, compared to Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Watford.
Expected lineup of Tottenham:
➲ Gazzaniga – Davies, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Foyth – Ndombele, Winks, Sissoko – Lamela (Alli) – Son, Kane
➲ Coach: Pochettino
Last matches from Tottenham:

Red Star Belgrade – Statistics & Current Form
If we wrote with Tottenham of cracked self-confidence, then the exact opposite of Red Star Belgrade to assert. The Serbian champion is currently in excellent condition and may continue to dream of reaching the round of 16 in the premier class.
The youngest six competitive matches were won by the Red-Whites. The most important and sometimes most impressive success, however, was certainly the 3: 1 against Olympiakos Piraeus in the second matchday in Group B. Against the Greek opponents were at half-time the Serbs 0: 1 behind before a strong second half ensured the aforementioned threesome.
By this home win – it was only the fourth full success in the last 18 European games – incidentally, the team of coach Vladan Milojevic has temporarily taken the second place in the table and is thus two points ahead of Olympiakos and the Spurs. Should the actual underdog in the English capital once again score three times, the prospects for the round of the last 16 would rise exponentially.
What our Tottenham vs. Crvena Zvezda’s tip on the Double Chance X / 2 at half-time definitely favors the bottom line are good performances that have shown the Serbs so far in this international season. Even with the befitting 0: 3 at FC Bayern conceded the combative strong and defensively defensive guest two goals only in the last ten minutes.
In addition, the reigning national champion already demonstrated in the qualification what they are able to do in 2019/2020. Successively FK Suduva, HJK Helsinki, FC Copenhagen and in the playoffs the Young Boys from Berne were eliminated.
In a foreign country, the Eastern Europeans have traditionally made heavier, although they were never behind in the qualification at halftime. Nevertheless, the interesting statistic that Crvena Zvezda could not win any of the recent nine appearances at European level (four draws, five failures) is of course a reason for Tottenham vs Red Star Belgrade still exploit the odds for a home win after 90 minutes.
The fact that the current league leaders of the Serbian league is far from having the potential of the English top club is beyond doubt, but the guests will come across a stable collective and try to stay at zero for as long as possible with a defensive attitude. Heavy weighs, however, the probable failure of the most dangerous striker Richmond Boakye.
Expected formation of Red Star Belgrade:
➲ Borjan – Rodic, Milunovic, Degenek, Gobeljic – Canas, Jovancic – La Parra, Marin, Garcia – Tomane
➲ Coach: Milojevic
Last matches of Red Star Belgrade:
⚽️ 18.10.2019 – Red Star Belgrade vs. Rad Belgrade 3: 1 (Super League)

Tottenham vs Red Star Belgrade Our Best Soccer Predictions Explained
For the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club is on Tuesday night in the home game against Red Star Belgrade a lot at stake. The finalist from the previous year may not allow themselves in Group B actually another slip-up, if you do not want to gamble early on the chances of moving into the second round.

In view of this very stressful starting position in connection with the bad form of the Pochettino-Elf have played for us in the game Tottenham Vs. Red Star Belgrade the too low betting odds on a success of the hosts no promising value. Instead, we would not rule out that the “Lilywhites”, who won just one of their last seven competitive matches, are again struggling.
Key Facts – Tottenham vs Red Star Belgrade Tips
📌 Tottenham won only one of the last seven competitive games
📌 Red Star Belgrade have been without a win for nine European Cup appearances
📌 The Spurs won only three of their last ten home matches in all competitions
The guests from the Serbian capital have smelled revenge after a 3-1 victory against Olympiacos Piraeus and continue to cause a sensation in Group B. Already in the 0: 3 in Munich two of the three goals conceded only in the immediate final phase. Since then, the Milojevic Elf has built additional self-confidence.
We expect the unpleasant red-whites to focus again on a compact defensive. It is questionable whether the unsettled hosts will succeed in finding solutions to a defensive bulwark in the first 45 minutes.
We face the duel Tottenham Vs. Red Star Belgrade at least the prediction that a tip on the double chance X / 2 – based on the first half – brings some value.
