Tottenham Hotspur picked up another three points in the Champions League last night, making back-to-back wins in the competition, both coming against Red Star Belgrade.

Spurs managed to beat the Serbian side 5-0 and 4-0 within the space of a month, doing both their points tally and their goal difference the world of good.

Tottenham now have just two games left in the 2019/20 Champions League group stages as they prepare to welcome Olympiacos to their new stadium, before an away trip to Bayern Munich on game week six.

Spurs currently have seven points in Group B, with Bayern leading the table on a perfect 12, Red Star Belgrade on 3 and Olympiacos on 1.

This means that a win against Olympiacos at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next time out would be enough to secure a qualification spot into the knockouts no matter what.

Qualifying in the number one position will be extremely tough and involves Bayern losing their final two games.

Spurs could still qualify in second even if they draw or lose to Olympiacos, as long as Bayern take points off Red Star.
