Olympiakos Team News   
Olympiacos boss Pedro Martins will have to do without Kostas Fortounis who is out with a cruciate ligament rupture, as well as centre-back Ruben Semedo who is missing with a meniscal injury.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News   
Defenders Danny Rose and Serge Aurier have been rested and did not travel with the squad, with Pochettino saying he will make changes to the side that beat Crystal Palace 4-0 last weekend. Ryan Sessegnon also did not travel after reporting irritation with a previous hamstring strain while fellow summer signing Giovani Lo Celso is out until at least the end of October with a hip injury. Juan Foyth is back in training after an ankle problem but is not expected to return to first-team action for another few weeks.

Pochettino's View   
"No-one today is thinking or giving us chance to be a contender to be in the final in Istanbul this season," added the Argentine, who will take charge of his 50th European game for Tottenham in Greece. "But that is normal. That makes it again very exciting, our run in the Champions League. "We know we have to start by winning. However, you can talk but tomorrow you need to show your quality. We need to show we have learned from the past."

Line Ups

We do seriously need to sort our defence out.

Toby going & Verts on the wane

Rose & Davies aren’t great

Aurier is erratic and kwp isn’t trusted by poch

If Poch didn't want to do more in the transfer market to resolve the right back situation then he must really have rated Foyth playing there and it's unfortunate that he got injured.

Can we stop blaming the players and start blaming the manager, he picks the team.

Blame Poch for the performance if you like but fack me, asking for his head!

Anyone would think we're down in 17th place in the league and have just gone out of the CL reading this reaction.

How many games do you want Spurs to keep throwing away before you start to wake up mate. The last six months have been awful.

Spurs have won just two of six games this season, drawn all three away games, two of them after leading 2-0 in both games, and lost at home to Newcastle. Not like what happened tonight is anything new. It isn`t. This sort of nonsense has been going on for months, if not years with the manager. Good teams do not keep blowing leads.

Some context required. 2 of the games this season have been 2 of the hardest in the league for Spurs.

You say this has gone on for months. Well we had a poor back end of last season but also reached a CL at the same time.

To make out we're in some sort of crisis is just stupid.

Not a crisis, but the manager is making so many basic errors in his team selections. He has to be able to see games out.
