Tottenham Hotspur, who didn't had an impressive start to their UEFA Champions League 2019-20 campaign, will host Crvena Zvezda in their upcoming third matchday fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London on October 23. Spurs held a draw with Olympiacos in their inaugural Champions League game before they were badly defeated 7-2 by Bayern Munich. Indeed the runners-up from Champions League 2018-19 are having a tough time. Whereas, Crvena Zvezda thrashed Olympiacos 3-1. The UEFA Champions League 2019-20 fixture Tottenham Hotspur vs Crvena Zvezda will commence at 12:30 am.
Speaking to reporters on the team's poor start, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said, "Our performance is not as good as we can deliver. Of course, we need to improve. On the other side there are all of the rumours that happen at any club when you don't win but it doesn't mean they're true," he said.
For Spurs, Christian Eriksen, the 27-year-old midfielder, is expected to rejoin the squad for Tuesday night's game. The side will be without their Captain Hugo Lloris, who picked up ligament injury. Red Star, on the other hand, will travel without Richmond Boakye. The 26-year-old striker suffered a calf injury due to which he was rested for two games.
