Tottenham boss Redknapp won't take tactical risks in Champions League

Harry Redknapp will adopt a safety-first approach to Tottenham's maiden Champions League campaign. "I am not going to go away from home and play 4-4-2 as you will get opened up," said Redknapp, who watched his side fall 3-0 behind to Young Boys at the Stade de Suisse before fighting back to win the tie 6-3.

"We go to Germany and they play with a diamond, and so they will have four players in the middle of the park.

"We have two in there and will run around chasing shadows as they pop it around. So we will have to look at that."

He added: "At home, I am 90% certain I will play with two strikers. But away from home, it will be different."
