Tottenham Hotspur will be ready and raring to go for the new Champions League campaign this season, especially after reaching the final last time out.

However, it appears as if the Spurs players and fans may have to keep on eye on the Red Star Belgrade faithful in the group stages.

Spurs were drawn against Red Star, Bayern Munich, and Olympiakos for the group stages of the competition this year.

Red Star Belgrade have now been charged with five offences by UEFA ahead of the fixtures against Spurs on October 22 (home) and November 6 (away) (Football London).

UEFA charged the Serbian club after their play-off second-leg match against Young Boys, in which fans were said to set off fireworks, throw objects, cause crowd disturbances, and block the stairways. The fifth charge came as improper conduct of the team itself.

Supporters reportedly drove a tank up to the Rajko Mitic Stadium before the Young Boys game, before partying on it and letting off flares after they qualified (Football London).

Definitely something for Spurs fans to watch out for.
