Newly appointed Tottenham Hotspur youth coach Yaya Toure was one of the people tasked with drawing balls from tournaments, and Yaya came from Tottenham in big fashion, drawing with Spurs in Group D alongside Eintracht Frankfurt, Sporting Lisbon and Marseille.
- Eintracht Frankfurt
- Tottenham Hotspur
- Sporting Lisbon
Sooooo remember that “best screenplay” I drew in Champions League Article preview fee? Almost nailed. Spurs drew the easiest possible opponent in the first pot, and one of the lowest ranked pot 3 competitors. They ended up with Marseille, who was a 4 bowler whale, but this is a group that Spurs should consider as a top favorite to advance.
If you want to #narrative, Sporting has ex-Tottenham player Marcus Edwards, who has been playing very well in Portugal. So far this season, Sporting tied with Braga and entered by Porto in the Spanish first division football NOS, perhaps that bodes well for Tottenham? Meanwhile, Marseille is full of Arsenal matches, which makes the competition normal. However, Frankfurt feels like a promenade. In fact, I think I might be more afraid of Marseille than of Frankfurt.
yes. It’s a really good draw. Tottenham should be impressive. I know I am! Thanks yay!
Let’s look at the rest of the draw:
