Tottenham play their second match in three days on Thursday evening when theytravel to Belgium to face Antwerp in Group J of the Europa League.
Antwerp won their first match in the group, coming from behind to secure a 2-1 success in Bulgaria against Ludogorets, and Ivan Leko’s team can be backed at 19/4 (5.75) with bet365.
Spurs are available at 53/100 (1.53) and the draw at 16/5 (4.20).
Spurs remain without defender Japhet Tanganga, while both Serge Aurier and Steven Bergwijn are both doubts. Jose Mourinho rested a number of regulars against LASK last week and is likely to do soonce again.
Antwerp, for their part, are without long-term absentees Sander Coopman and Alexis De Sart in midfield, as well as full-back Aurelio Buta.
Tottenham’s clean sheet at Turf Moor on Monday night was only their third in 11 competitive games this season and generally their matches have seen plenty of goals so far.
Indeed, Spurs are the top scorers in the Premier League currently, helped largely by their 6-1 win at Old Trafford, and they will feel confident of getting among the goals once again in Belgium even if their forward line is far from full strength.
The hosts have also been in excellent form in the final third over the last six weeks, scoring at least twice in each of their last seven matches, and should be able to contribute to another high-scoring clash.
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is available at 9/10 (1.90) and looks like a strong selection, given both sides’impressive recent scoring form.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
