APOEL: The underdogs (Recent Form: DLLWDW)
APOEL are underdogs of group H and in the first match they suffered from an away loss to Real Madrid (0:3). On Tuesday, they take on Tottenham. “We should count ourselves fortunate to be playing such games. In the last five years, we have got stronger from playing against such massive opponents. Tomorrow, we face a team with great quality and we have prepared accordingly for the task at hand. A lot will also count on our own faith and mental strength. We need to keep believing even if the target of winning may seem formidable. We are realistic. We know that Tottenham are the better team. We need to be organised but to have more time on the ball than we did in Madrid. Confidence will play a huge role for us,” said coach Giorgos Donis. Ebecilio, Efrem, Milanov, Bertoglio are sidelined with injuries.
Tottenham: Positive start (Recent Form: WWDWWD)
Tottenham started the group phase with a home victory against Borussia Dortmund (3:1), so it’s been a positive start for ‘Spurs’. Now it’s time for away encounter. “We are expecting a difficult game. We know it will be tough but we are ready and looking forward to the test. I remember the atmosphere here well from playing for Wales in a EURO 2016 qualifier. It is a good memory because we won 1-0 which was key to reaching France at the time. It was a tough night and Cyprus gave us a tough time but the memory from that night here was a good one,” said defender Ben Davies. Wanyama and Rose are injured, Dembele is doubtful whereas Alli and Vertonghen are both suspended.
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
In conclusion, I believe that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Tottenham are favourites, but visitors have some absences amongst defensive players so perhaps APOEL may be able to find the net as well.
