UEFA to investigate how Red Star supporters bought tickets for Champions League game

Tottenham kick-started their Champions League campaign after a couple of poor results. Spurs had only one point from the opening two games but destroyed Red Star Belgrade at home 5-0.

Erik Lamela got one goal while Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scored braces as we put up a great display.

However, UEFA will investigate how Red Star fans were able to get tickets for the game (h/t Evening Standard).

The Serbian fans were banned from attending this clash after being found guilty of racism in previous games, but the report claims that more than 200 of them were able to make their way into the ground.

Police and stewards had to contain the fans and Tottenham were responsible for the ticket sales and segregation of the supporters.

The home side could face sanctions from UEFA unless they can prove they tried not to sell tickets to the wrong fans.

The report adds that Tottenham did not put the Champions League tickets on general sale to avoid them ending up with the Red Star fans. A spokesperson added that Tottenham had launched their own investigation into the issue and action could be taken against the guilty (h/t Evening Standard):

“We have launched a full investigation in order to understand how tickets have been acquired. We shall take the strongest possible action against any individual found to have sold their ticket on.”

There weren’t any major issues during the game but this is a concern given that the tickets weren’t put out for general sale either.

Tottenham needed a good win

Spurs had been struggling for most of the season and this win should give us more confidence. Our next game is far from an easy one as we travel to Merseyside and face Liverpool.

The Reds dropped points against Manchester United on Sunday and if we play to our best ability, we should get something from Anfield.
