Once again dropping points away at Goodison Park over the weekend, Tottenham will now turn their attentions back to European duties when they make the trip to Crvena Zvezda on Wednesday night.
While Mauricio Pochettino’s men might be continuing on what has been a hugely inconsistent run entering November, the Lilywhites still find themselves sat second in Group B and have a spot in the knockout stage on their agenda.
On the flip side, making a return to winning ways and enjoying a stellar run domestically, Wednesday’s Serbian hosts have won their last three Super Liga appearances on the spin and they will know that an upset victory in midweek would see them leapfrog Spurs.
However, although the mood around the Stadion Rajko Mitić remains at a continued high, they do have some rather unpleasant memories of their previous meeting against the Premier League outfit.

The Stadion Rajko Mitić to host another upset?
Although Crvena Zvezda may have been extremely disappointed to have been dismantled in North London a fortnight ago, Vladan Milojević has plenty of positives to take away after a bright start to the new campaign.
Once again holding a six-point buffer at the top of the Super Liga, their European performances at the Stadion Rajko Mitić have seen them gain a growing reputation across Europe.
Aside from a defeat against PSG back in December 2018, Crveno-beli are unbeaten in their other 11 Champions League matches on home soil, a run that was highlighted by a 2-0 win over Liverpool last season.
If the Serbian champions are to pull off yet another famous victory and move into pole position in Group B, then fans around Beograd will be looking for attacking talisman Mateo Garcia to lead their charge.
After joining from Greek outfit Aris over the summer, the 23-year-old has quickly cemented his spot as a fan favourite and has now managed to find the net in back-to-back appearances.

Tottenham’s issues on the road
Although Mauricio Pochettino’s side may still be seen as a landslide favourite to secure a spot in the knockout stage come next month, last year’s finalists have continued to flatter to deceive.
Throwing away another lead against Everton on Sunday, Tottenham have won just one of their last six matches across all formats, a run highlighted by their infamous 7-2 hammering against Bayern Munich last month.
Enduring their worst domestic start in recent memory, much like last season, a huge part of Tottenham’s continued issues have come down to some woeful displays outside of North London.
Along with dropping two more points at Goodison Park over the weekend, the one-time Southampton boss has seen his side remarkably fail to win any of their eight away matches across all competitions since opening the 2019/2020 campaign.
Looking to pick up three crucial Group B points in midweek, there is no doubt that Pochettino will be desperate for MVP Harry Kane to overcome a late fitness test.
Missing the trip to Merseyside on Sunday, Tottenham remain hopeful the England skipper can lead the line out in Serbia, especially as he has scored 18 times in 22 Champions League matches.
