The draw for the 2019/2020 Champions League group stages have been made and Tottenham have been dealt a good hand.

In pot two, Spurs knew they were almost guaranteed to get a European powerhouse, although there was also 16 per cent that Mauricio Pochettino’s men would get paired with Russia champions Zenit St Petersburg, which was by far the easiest of the pot one sides.

Tottenham avoided going to the Russia’s second biggest city and were drawn to play Bundesliga winners Bayern Munich, meaning they will return to the scene of their pre-season Audi Cup victory last month to play the German side for the first time in a competitive match since the 1982/1983 UEFA Cup.

Pochettino’s men were joined in Group B by Greek league winners Olympiacos, who won a record 44th title last term and then Serbian champions Red Star Belgrade – also known as Crvena Zvezda – who shocked Liverpool in last seasons group stage, beating them 2-0, whilst also holding Napoli to a goalless draw at the Rajko Mitic Stadium.
