Tottenham v APOEL betting preview


Tottenham Hotspur have certainly not have been at their best in the Premier League this season, with the temporary switch to Wembley Stadium during the building of a new stadium proving difficult to handle and the Lilywhites have not won in their last four away matches either, leaving them down in sixth place with 15 matches played and out of the EFL Cup also, leaving some fans wondering if the club are losing some momentum after three progressive seasons under Mauricio Pochettino.

The North Londoners can at least take some pride this season from their excellent performances in the Champions League. After being drawn out against the might of both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, the Lilywhites were perhaps fearing the worst but not only have they not lost in any of their five fixtures so far, they've also secured the top spot in the group after a win in Dortmund last time out. With the home advantage, they should win this one too at 2/9 with Ladbrokes.

APOEL Nicosia have been dominant in Cyprus' top tier in recent years although so far this season they find themselves a little off the pace. Despite being the title holders, APOEL are currently down in third position with 14 matches played and although they do have games in hand on both AEK Larnaca and Anorthosis, the two teams currently above them in 1.Division, they need to start performing more consistently if they're to retain the trophy this season.

This Champions League group has, unsurprisingly, proven a little too strong for them, but they could still secure a spot in the Europa League if they can better Borussia Dortmund's result against Real Madrid on their trip to Wembley. The Cypriot side have lost home and away to Real Madrid and in the reverse fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, but both games against the German side have ended in draws meaning a shock win in London at 14/1 with Coral could keep them in Europe.

With some vital Premier League fixtures coming up and Tottenham's league form no doubt a great concern to Mauricio Pochettino, this game may be seen as something of a hindrance with little to be gained from the victory. As such, we're anticipating that key players such as Harry Kane and Dele Alli will be rested in this fixture, but with the home advantage the hosts should still have enough quality to grind out a hard-fought win by a single goal margin at odds of 3/1 with Betfair.

Without Harry Kane in the starting line-up, Tottenham will look to summer signing Fernando Llorente to lead the line. The Spaniard, who joined from Swansea City at the start of this campaign, is yet to open his account for the club, but we've seen in the past with the Swans as well as at Juventus and Athletic Bilbao that he can be prolific when given the chance and he'll be hoping to finally get on the scoresheet for Spurs in this game at 3/1 with William Hill.

Recommended bets:
Tottenham to win by one goal @ 3/1 with Betfair
Fernando Llorente to score first @ 3/1 with William Hill
