Charlie Nicholas believes that Tottenham will draw 2-2 when they host Bayern Munich on Tuesday night in the Champions League.
Spurs play their second match of their Champions League group and will be looking to build on a 2-2 away draw against Olympiacos in their opening fixture.
They go into the contest in form that has seen them win just one of their last four games across all competitions, but that did come at the weekend at home to Southampton.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side battled for an hour with just 10 men to beat the Saints in the Premier League and lift the mood in the camp.
Sky Sports pundit can’t separate Spurs and upcoming German opponents Bayern, but did point out that Christian Eriksen is in a poor run of form right now.
He’s managed just one goal and one assist in nine games across all competitions so far this season and isn’t hitting the heights he is capable of.
“Harry Kane was clinical again [against Southampton] and does what he does but Christian Eriksen looked so out of sorts. Mauricio Pochettino seemed as if he might have lost the dressing room but the Saints game was a springboard victory for Tottenham with 10 men,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
“Bayern Munich are not as good as they once were and you can get at them – they rely heavily on Robert Lewandowksi. I’m going for a draw. This will be a result that Tottenham will be happy with.”
There is so much talk off the field about Eriksen’s future that it looks like it’s impacting his performances.
Eriksen’s current deal expires with Spurs at the end of the season and it’s unclear on where his future will lie.
The 27-year-old needs to settle down to rediscover his best form while he’s still playing for the club, regardless of what his future holds in the next year.
He is a Danish attacking midfielder that can dictate play for Pochettino’s team when he is at his best and they could do with him dropping a top performance against extremely tough opponents Bayern.
