Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Erik Lamela will be unavailable for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade.
The Argentine has missed Spurs’ last two matches with a hamstring injury.
Lamela was excellent when Mauricio Pochettino’s side welcomed Red Star to London – scoring once and providing two assists in a 5-0 win.

The attacker has missed Tottenham’s last two Premier League games with Liverpool and Everton, though, and will not be available on Wednesday night.
Indeed, the London club’s official Twitter account confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon, stating that Lamela would miss the Champions League tie but could be available for this weekend’s Premier League clash with Sheffield United.
A number of Spurs fans took to social media to comment on the news, and whilst some were upset, others are not all that surprised due to the 27-year-old’s injury problems in recent seasons – particularly last term as he made just 19 league appearances.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
