THE TEAM NEWS

OLYMPIAKOS PIRAEUS

  • Their start to the Greek Super League has been equally impressive as they have won all three matches, scoring seven and conceding none.
  • Fortounis and Christodoulopoulos are both unavailable for this match but there are plenty of quality options at Pedro Martins' disposal.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Jose Sa; Elabdellaoui, Cisse, Meriah, Koutris; Guilherme, Camara; Randjelovic, Valbuena, Daniel Podence; El-Arabi

Unavailable: Fortounis (Injured), Christodoulopoulos (Injured)

Doubtful:

TOTTENHAM

  • Spurs produced their best performance of the season on Saturday as they dismantled Crystal Palace 4-0 thanks to four first half goals.
  • Mauricio Pochettino may consider one or two rotations but he will be reluctant to alter things too much as they aim to put a run together.
  • Davies is a natural replacement for Rose at left-back while Alli and Ndombele could both come in at the expense of Sissoko and Lamela.

Predicted line-up (4-2-2-2): Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies; Winks, Ndombele; Eriksen, Alli; Son, Kane

Unavailable: Sessegnon (Injured), Foyth (Injured), Lo Celso (Injured)

Doubtful: Walker-Peters (Injured), Sanchez (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Last season's runners-up Tottenham face a tough start to their 2019/20 Champions League campaign as they come up against an in-form Olympiakos side. The Greeks have started the season extremely well and they will pose plenty of problems for this Spurs side so expect goals in a lively encounter.
