Tottenham vs Olympiacos: Spurs to be solid under Mourinho

Kick-off: 2000, 26/11/2019

Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Jose Mourinho is expected to enjoy a successful first home match as Tottenham boss when Olympiacos travel to London in the Champions League.

Spurs look well placed to finish second in Group B behind Bayern Munich after picking up seven points from four games, while the Greek outfit are bottom of the table on one point.

Mourinho will be eyeing a clinical victory and 6/5 for a home win to nil is our initial Tottenham vs Olympiacos prediction.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Spurs blew a two-goal lead when these sides met in Greece on Matchday 1 and then put themselves in trouble with a humiliating 7-2 loss to Bayern on home turf.

However, last season’s beaten finalists got back on track with a couple of emphatic triumphs over Red Star, prevailing 5-0 at this venue and then 4-0 in Belgrade.

Those impressive performances weren’t enough to save Mauricio Pochettino from being dismissed, due to a poor run of domestic results, but Mourinho is a strong replacement.

The Portuguese boss has picked up 25 trophies during a stellar career, including two Champions League triumphs with Porto and Inter Milan.

Although Spurs won 3-2 at West Ham in his first domestic match, Mourinho is renowned for his ability to build a side that is defensively rigid and will get to work quickly on drilling his new back line to make them far more solid.

Looking at the 13/2 for a professional 2-0 win in this contest.

A Look At Olympiacos’ Betting Odds

Olympiacos showed plenty of heart to fight back in that first encounter with Tottenham, but have not had much luck in this pool since then.

Pedro Martins’ side led at half-time when visiting Red Star, but were eventually made to pay for Yassine Benzia’s 57th-minute red card in a 3-1 defeat.

The Greek outfit put in another spirited display when losing 3-2 at home to Bayern, but again faded in the second period on the road when going down 2-0 in Munich.

Martins must now be tempted to concentrate on chasing domestic silverware, as Olympiacos are bang in contention to win back the Super League title they last claimed three seasons ago.

It would be no surprise to see a cagey affair in the early stages of this clash, but 3/1 for Draw HT/Spurs FT completes our Tottenham vs Olympiacos betting tips.
