Betting. Tottenham Hotspur vs Bayer Leverkusen [02.11.16] : a ding-dong battle

Champions League

Group E


Bet: Total Goals under 2,75

In the space of two weeks Tottenham and Bayer are to meet again in the Champions League. This time they will play at Wembley, on Wednesday, November 2. After the first three matches both sides have some unsolved problems that is why the game promises to be tough and intense.

After a brilliant start that was not predicted by sports betting experts Tottenham slowed down. The Spurs are currently on a 5-match winless run in all competitions. In spite of remaining the only unbeaten team in the Premier League they sit on the 5th place with 5 wins and 5 draws. Besides, Pochettino’s side lost to Liverpool in the Football League Cup (1-2). In addition, their Champions League results are far from being perfect. Contrary to all betting predictions the Spurs lost to Monaco (1-2). Then they got a narrow away win over CSKA (1-0) and drew with Bayer (0-0).

As for Bayer, they also can’t be proud of their recent results. At the start of the season Leverkusen definitely lacked consistency. But with time Bayer’s results only got worst. The betting companies didn’t expect them to lose to Werder (1-2) and Hoffenheim (0-3) in Bundesliga. But that wasn’t the end of Roger Schmidt’s troubles. His side suffered a shocking defeat (2-3) at the hands of the representative of the Liga. 3 Lotte in the German Cup which became a terrible surprise for the betting markets. Finally, the winless run was ended only due to a victory over miserable Wolfsburg (2-1).

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that none of the two teams are in good form now. But if Tottenham has 4 points and a home game against an underdog CSKA in reserve, Bayer  yielded points in all three previous matches (2-2 with CSKA, 1-1 with Monaco and 0-0 with Tottenham) and sit on the third place with 3 points. So Leverkusen is making the trip to London in the hope of a victory because they desperately need to improve their situation. The Spurs are also aiming a win as it would be a significant step towards the knockout stage. This game promises to be intense which is confirmed by the sports betting markets: Tottenham – 2,00, Draw – 3,70, Bayer – 3,95.

While analyzing the bets it is important to pay attention to the fact that in the last 5 matches Tottenham have scored only three times – far less than earlier. In this context Harry Kane’s return could become a great boost for the Londoners. However, even if Kane manages to get fit enough to play, he will most likely not be at his full potential. As for Schmidt’s selection concerns, Pohjanpalo, Bellarabi, Toprak and Yurchenko are all reported to be injured. So both teams have problems and this match will be probably won by a single goal. That is why the option “Winning Margin Tottenham 1 goal or Draw” (1,81) seems to get through. Besides there is a risky bet “Winning Margin Tottenham 1 goal” (3,70). Also the bet “Total Goals Under 2,75” (1,80) is definitely worth your attention.
