Tottenham vs Olympiakos

, KO: 20:00 Nov 26, 2019, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

JOSE Mourinho's return to the dugout got off to a dream start and the new Spurs boss will be targeting back-to-back wins when Olympiakos visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night.

The self proclaimed “Special One” made an instant impact by steering his new troops to a 3-2 win away at West Ham – a  first league success on the road for Tottenham since January – and the Portuguese will now be presented with the opportunity to book Spurs' place in the last-16 of the Champions League whilst making his home bow in north London.

Mourinho's predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino, oversaw Spurs' opening four Group B matches in which the capital club collected seven points from and another win on Tuesday night would send Tottenham through to the knockout-phase with a game to spare.

Standing in Spurs' way is an Olympiakos outfit who currently prop up the section having only managed to pick up a solitary point thus far – a 2-2 draw with Tottenham on matchday one.

Pedro Martins men have since tasted defeat away at Red Star Belgrade before suffering back-to-back losses to Group B pacesetters Bayern Munich.

Therefore, it's looking increasingly likely that a third-placed finish and a Europa League parachute represents the Piraeus clubs best chance of being involved in European competition come the new year.

Domestically, Olympiakos remain unbeaten and they currently occupy top-spot in the Greek Super League, however, the bookmakers don't believe that will count for much in the English capital with an away win an unfancied 9/1 (William Hill) and a draw is also deemed unlikely at 9/2 (William Hill) with the same firm.

Meanwhile, Mourinho's men are odds-on favourites at 1/3 (Bet 365) and as such punters will have to dig deep when trying to source value from a Tottenham triumph.

With Mourinho now at the helm, coupled with the fact that this occasion will mark his home debut, I can't see anything other than a home win here which is why the betting angles I'm going to opt for all hinge on a Spurs win.

The first of those is backing Spurs to win at 19/20 (Coral) in the half time/full time market – a bet that would have banked profit in Tottenahm's last five victories across all competitions.

What's more, Mourinho has inherited wealth of attacking talent and after getting off to a flyer on Saturday I fancy Spurs to come out the traps on Tuesday night.

In considering who may get on the scoresheet, Tottenahm talisman Harry Kane will tempt punters at 5/2 (UniBet) in the first goalscorer market and Son Heung Min is an eye-catching 7/5 (Ladbrokes) to score anytime.

However, I'm going to opt for an alternative angle by combining a Tottenham win and Kane to score at 8/11 (William Hill) – a combination that would have been a winning one in all but one of Spurs' successes this season so far.

Furthermore, Spurs can ill-afford a slip up here with a trip to Bayern Munich to follow in the final round of fixtures and therefore I fully expect last season's beaten finalists to rubber-stamp their last-16 ticket on Tuesday night.

However, I'm not expecting a goalfest given that the Greek champions have been competitive and spirited in all of their Group B Matches to date and with that in mind I'm going back to Spurs to win a game that sees under 4.5 match goals scored at 8/11 (Betway)

Mourinho will be keen to tighten up Tottenham's shaky defence and we may start to see the early signs of that on Tuesday night and as such I expect Spurs to march into the knockout-phase off the back of a professional victory over Olympiakos.
