Tottenham vs Olympiakos Betting Preview | 26 Nov 2019

Opening the Jose Mourinho era with three points over the weekend, Tottenham will now turn their attention back to European duties as they welcome Olympiakos to North London on Tuesday night.

Managing to hold on to their lead away at West Ham on Saturday lunchtime and picking up a 3-2 win against their bitter London rivals, Spurs will know that another victory in midweek would see them secure a spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League.

On the flip side, while Spurs may have one foot outside of Group B, Olympiakos have really started to show some glaring signs of inconsistencies and nothing short of a shock victory on Tuesday can see them avoid being eliminated from the tournament in midweek.

However, putting in undoubtedly their best display during qualifying by managing to battle from two goals behind to snatch a point against Spurs out in Greece back in September, you might be interested to know that both teams to find the net in North London can be found pencilled in at 19/20 with William Hill.

Son to steal the show?

Although new boss Jose Mourinho may have been disappointed to have seen West Ham snatch two late goals on Saturday lunchtime, the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager did see his side pick up a much-needed victory.

Knowing that three points in midweek will be enough for last year’s Champions League finalists to secure a route out of Group B, one man to keep an eye out for on Tuesday and someone who really impressed at the London Stadium over the weekend is the red-hot Heung-Min Son.

Scoring the first goal in Mourinho’s tenure, the South Korean international has now bagged four goals in his last three appearances across all formats, including bagging a brace against Crvena Zvezda earlier in the month.

Even more impressive, with five goals in his last three Champions League appearances, you might be interested to know that the 27-year-old winger is pencilled in at 11/8 with Paddy Power to extend on his recent purple patch in midweek.

Olympiakos’ foreign soil headache

Although Olympiakos may have opened their Group B campaign with a 2-2 draw against Spurs back in September, the Greek giants have since continued on a European campaign to forget.

Putting in an extremely lackluster display in their 2-0 defeat away at Bayern Munich earlier in the month, Pedro Martins’ men have won just one of their last four matches across all competitions and only their goal difference keeps them at the top of the Super League standings.

Losing each of their last three Champions League matches on the bounce, a huge part of Olympiakos’ continued European issues has been their struggles at the back.

Shipping two or more goals in each of their four Group B appearances this year, you might be interested to know that Tuesday’s guests can be found at 2/5 with Coral to ship over 1.5 goals once again in midweek.
