Sky Sports football expert Charlie Nicholas believes Olympiacos will surprise fans and not lose in the starting group stage match of the Champions League against Tottenham Hotspur.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will start the new 2019/20 campaign in Athens, while Bayern Munich will play against Red Star Belgrade in the other match of this group.
“This is an awkward one. Tottenham were very impressive in the first half against Crystal Palace, which allowed them to ease down to second gear in the second half. They kept hold of Christian Eriksen and so things have calmed down a bit. He started against Palace, so is that why it has calmed down?” Nicholas wrote on Sky Sports.
“Mauricio Pochettino has changed his team too much and that is why they look vulnerable at the back. I would imagine Tottenham would try to control possession, but this is an awkward trip and these are dangerous teams to travel to. Tottenham are still unpredictable.” he added.
