Is there anything riding on game week six in the Champions League for Spurs?

Tottenham Hotspur were placed in a pretty tough Champions League group again this season, coming up against Bayern Munich, Olympiacos, and Red Star Belgrade.

Although the latter two are teams you would expect Spurs to beat, Olympiacos proved to be tough opponents and Red Star defeated Liverpool last year.

However, Spurs are now comfortably through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, no matter what happens on game week six for the Lilywhites.

Spurs face an away trip to Bayern Munich for their final match, with absolutely nothing riding on it for either side involved.

Red Star and Olympiacos are still battling it out to see who will drop into the Europa League and who will be knocked out of Europe.

However, with Bayern on 15 points, Spurs on 10, Red Star Belgrade on three, and Olympiacos on one, there is nothing to play for in Germany.

Tottenham can’t climb up and take the top spot in the group, and they can’t drop down and miss out on qualification. They are guaranteed second place.

Hopefully, this means that Mourinho will have the chance to rest his first team. Or perhaps he will be out for revenge after Bayern beat his new team 7-2 at home earlier this season.
