Tottenham Hotspur flew out to Greece today in preparation of their Champions League tie against Olympiacos tomorrow.

This is the first match in the 2019/20 group stage for Spurs after they were drawn in a group with Olympiacos, Bayern Munich, and Red Star Belgrade.

A tough away match in Greece will be a testing start for Pochettino’s boys in their first European match since the Champions League Final defeat to Liverpool.

Poch will be hoping to start the campaign a lot better than last year, with Tottenham taking just one point from the first three group stage games.

The Argentine gaffer has kept up his trend of leaving a couple of first-team players at home for away ties, as Alasdair Gold has revealed that neither Rose nor Aurier travelled with the team.

This comes after both players had a big part to play in the 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace at the weekend and perhaps with Leicester away in mind.
