Tottenham Hotspur v APOEL Nicosia Betting Tips Explained


The group stage could not have gone much better for Tottenham Hotspur. Having been drawn alongside Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in Group H, Mauricio Pochettino’s side came into the group stage knowing that they would have to be at their best to progress to the last-16 – but they have been at their best through five games and that means they have already wrapped up a place in the knockout stage of the competition.

Spurs boast an unbeaten record into Matchday Six, having won both of their games against Dortmund while following up a draw in Madrid with a fantastic home win over Cristiano Ronaldo and his Real team-mates. That means they do have the luxury of taking their foot off the pedal for their last outing, against an APOEL Nicosia side they have already beaten 3-0, but this is not the time for Tottenham to go through the motions because they are in serious need of a victory.

Tottenham have managed to win just one of their last five games in all competitions and they have not managed a home win since they scraped past rock-bottom Crystal Palace a month ago. This disappointing form has seen them lose ground on the top four in the Premier League and with the crucial festive period coming up, they really need to stop the rot and rediscover that winning feeling, and this meeting with APOEL is the perfect opportunity for them to do just that.

The visitors are flying high on the domestic front and in Europe they have managed a couple of impressive results – drawing both meetings with Dortmund – but they were soundly beaten 3-0 when they hosted Spurs in late September and they suffered 3-0 and 6-0 defeats in their encounters with Real Madrid. Those convincing scorelines cannot be ignored and, despite Tottenham’s recent woes, I am confident we will see similar scenes at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night, with Spurs rounding off the group stage with a comfortable home win.

My second recommendation is to back Harry Kane to play a goal-scoring role. The odds on him scoring anytime are not exactly lucrative, but they are certainly worth considering for a man that has scored in three of his last four appearances for Tottenham Hotspur. Kane has shone in this competition so far, managing six goals in Spurs’ first five games in the group stage, and I expect him to add to that tally as Spurs ease past APOEL Nicosia.
