While Tottenham may have made a much-needed return to winning ways over the weekend, Spurs will now turn their attentions back to Champions League duties when Bayern Munich travel to North London on Tuesday night.
Throwing away a two-goal lead in their European opener against Olympiakos a fortnight ago and having to settle for just a point out in Greece, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have now won just one of their last four matches across all competitions.
While the mood Spurs’ camp might remain incredibly fragile, the defending German champions have opened the new Bundesliga campaign in their usual style.
Already reclaiming their spot at the top of Germany’s top-tier heading into October, The Bavarians opened their Group B campaign with a routine 3-0 victory over Crvena Zvezda.
You might be interested to know, that with the two sides playing out a dramatic 2-2 draw when they met in the Audi Cup during their pre-season tour, another high-scoring encounter of over 3.5 goals can be found at 11/8 with Ladbrokes.
Spurs seeking stability
Although Mauricio Pochettino may have seen his 10-man Spurs side secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over Southampton on Saturday, Tottenham are a side desperately seeking some stability.
Now sat outside of the top-four and crashing out of the EFL Cup at the hands of League Two outfit Colchester last week, Tuesday’s hosts have won just a pair of their last eight appearances.
Also still searching for their first Champions League victory after throwing away a two-goal lead out in Greece a fortnight ago, there is no doubt that Pochettino will be calling on Harry Kane to spearhead their charge in midweek.
Finding the net against Southampton over the weekend, the England skipper has now found the net in his last three matchups across all formats and the 26-year-old can be found at 5/4 with Betfair to extend that run on home soil.
Elsewhere, while they might not quite be the side that reached the Champions League final over the summer, there is some good news for fans in North London.
Despite being withdrawn over the weekend; winger Son Heung-min has been declared fit to be handed a spot in Pochettino’s starting XI on Tuesday.
Bayern Munich – The European dark horses?
Although Bayern Munich may have only just managed to reclaim their domestic crown last season, it has been an incredibly bright start for Niko Kovač’s men.
Putting three past debutants Paderborn over the weekend, they have once again climbed to the top of the standings and are one of just two sides in the Bundesliga who can boast an unbeaten start to the new campaign.
Unsurprisingly, The Bavarians are pencilled in as a huge favourite to secure an automatic route to the knockout stage of Europe’s premier tournament this season.
Tuesday’s guests can be found at 4/11 with Bet365 to clinch top spot in Group B, ahead of Tottenham who currently find themselves at 2/1.
While Philippe Coutinho may have made an immediate impact since making a loan move from Barcelona, one man to watch on Tuesday will be the red-hot Robert Lewandowski.
Remarkably, the Polish marksman has now bagged 12 goals in just his last eight matchups for the European giants and you will be interested to know that the former BVB striker can be found at 19/20 with Ladbrokes to extend his purple patch on foreign soil.
