Tottenham’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) campaign began with a 2-2 draw at Olympiakos, making it Tottenham’s eighth UCL group stage match in ten to feature over 2.5 goals. Even so, this could be a close one, as four of Tottenham’s last five UCL home matches have separated the teams by less than 1.5 goals. Encouragingly, the ‘Lilywhites’ have a strong all-time home record in UCL group-stage games against the top-seeded side in the group. Each of that quartet saw both teams score and produce over 3.5 total goals, and remarkably, all of the wins came via a 3-1 scoreline.
After a routine 3-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on UCL matchday one, Bayern Munich’s group stage record since the start of 2018/19 currently reads: W5, D2. All of those victories came by a margin of over 1.5 goals, with four yielding a clean sheet and the last three seeing them win both halves. They travel to London on the back of an impressive unbeaten away record in the UCL. In a testament to their staying power on hostile turf, four of their last five goals in those trips have arrived beyond the hour mark, with those later goals coming in uninterrupted pairs across two games.
