Last year’s beaten finalists Tottenham begin their 2019/20 UEFA Champions League campaign with a trip to Olympiakos this evening.
While the Greek club’s most recent competition appearance came in 2017/18, Spurs went all the way to the final last time out, winning memorable knockout ties against Manchester City and Ajax only to lose to Liverpool in the all English final in Madrid.
The clubs’ only previous fixtures came 47 years ago, in the 1972/73 UEFA Cup second round.
Spurs effectively sealed progress with a 4-0 win at White Hart Lane, Jimmy Pearce scoring twice with Martin Chivers and Ralph Coates also on target; a Roman Arguroidis goal gave Olympiakos some pride via a 1-0 second-leg victory.
Tonight’s match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 5.15pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
