Tottenham head to Serbia on Wednesday evening to play their fourth game in Group B of the Champions League against Red Star Belgrade.

Mauricio Pochettino's men beat the Serbian champions 5-0 in north London on matchday three but they are likley to find Red Star are a different prospect in front of their own fans.

Latest odds

The hosts are offered at 5.00 with Sportsbet to record their second win in this season's competition.

Spurs for their part have won just two of their last eight matches on the road in the Champions League and are priced at 1.62 to pick up three points with the draw at 4.00.

Red Star Belgrade vs Tottenham Team News

Harry Kane was missing from Spurs' 1-1 Premier League draw at Everton on Sunday with illness and it remains to be seen whether or not he recovers in time to be fully fit.

Hugo Lloris remains sidelined while Erik Lamela has missed the last two league games with a thigh problem.

Jan Vertonghen also missed the trip to Goodison Park with a hamstring problem and could be a doubt for Wednesday.

Red Star welcomed back injured trio Richmond Boakye, Miland Rodic and Milan Borjan at the weekend and all three could return to the starting eleven against Spurs.

Red Star Belgrade vs Tottenham Preview

This is only Red Star's second appearance in the group stages of the Champions League, yet the Belgrade outfit have shown they know how to make home advantage count.

Last season they beat eventual winners Liverpool 2-0 and drew 0-0 with Napoli.

Meanwhile the first home game of the current campaign saw them win 3-1 against Olympiakos, with those positive results contrasting starkly with their away form where they have lost all five matches they have ever contested in the group stages.

Spurs come into the game having conceded in injury time to Everton which prevented them recording a first away win in the league since January and there is a definite malaise surrounding Pochettino's side.

On matchday one they let slip a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at Olympiakos before a 7-2 home mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich.

There is little which currently inspires confidence in last season's runners-up and opposing them in a hostile atmopshere could make sense.

Tips and predictions

The hosts are offered at 1.92 to win with a +0.75 Asian handicap and that looks like a tempting option.

This bet pays out if Red Star win or draw, while half our stake is refunded if they lose by a single goal.
