Tottenham travel to Croatia to face Dinamo Zagreb in the last-16 of the Europa League on Thursday evening, with Jose Mourinho’s men well-placed to progress in the competition.
Spurs have a healthy 2-0 aggregate lead thanks to Harry Kane’s brace last week’s first legand are clear favourites to make it through to the quarter-final of the tournament.
Spurs come into the game off the back of a disappointing defeat in the north London derby against Arsenal at the weekend, yet they are fancied to get back to winning ways at evens (2.00) with bet365.
The hosts, meanwhile, have been in strong form winning nine of their last 10 games in all competitions, with defeat in the English capital being their only loss since January 30.
Dinamo can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) with the draw at 12/5 (3.40).
The north Londoners are without Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who is suspended, while Giovani Lo Celso and Son Heung-Min are both injured.
Full-back Sadegh Moharrami is injured for Dinamo.
The hosts’ preparations for this game have been severely affected with the departure of manager Zoran Mamic this week, who is facing serious legal issues.
As a result, Dinamo will be coached by former player Dario Krznar on Thursday evening, but it is clearly a huge blow for the Croatians and one which Spurs will hope to take advantage of.
The Europa League remains a realistic chance of silverware for Mourinho’s men and despite their first leg lead, they will no doubt be taking Thursday’s match extremely seriously.
Spurs had been on an impressive run before their weekend derby defeat and backing them to get back to winning ways makes plenty of sense.
The price of evens (2.00)forSpurs to beat a side they were clearly superior to last week looks highly appealing.
Alsoworthy of consideration is combining this selection with the visitors to score over 1.5 goals, which sees the odds rise to 6/4 (2.50) and which comfortably paid out in the first leg.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
