Finalist of the last edition of the Champions League, Tottenham saw a very delicate start to the season. However, the Spurs are still largely in the game to pass in the 1/8 round of the final with 4 points ahead of the 3rd, the Red Star of Belgrade. Held in check by Olympiakos in the first leg (2-2) and humiliated by Bayern (2-7), they then easily dominated the Red Star twice (5-0 and 0-4).
