Tottenham have warned their fans not to wear club colours when travelling to Moscow for next week’s Champions League game against CSKA Moscow in Russia.
The Group E fixture will be the first between clubs from England and Russia since the violence that sparked outrage during the last Euro 2016 tournament in France.

Now Spurs have taken the unusual step of urging supporters not to display anything giving away their allegiance – until they get inside the stadium on Tuesday night.
A travel advice on the club’s website reads: “Please note, for additional personal security, it is suggested that you do not show your football colours until you are inside the stadium.
“Whilst flags and banners are welcome at the stadium, we recommend that they are not openly shown in the city centre.”
Spurs will be looking to put the disappointment of losing 2-1 to Monaco – in their first Champions League ‘home’ game at Wembley – behind them.
