Europa League – Tottenham Hotspur vs Anderlecht Betting Preview

Tottenham moved up to 5th place in the league on the weekend with a 3-1 vicotory over Aston Villa and with Chelsea still struggling for form, a spot in the top four has really opened up for the likes of Spurs to attack which could see Mauricio Pochettino put out a weaker side here. It will be interesting to see who starts for Tottenham with huge game against Arsenal at the Emirates coming up on Sunday.

Tottenham have been very strong recently and have lost just twice in their last 14 matches and we are starting the see the effects of Pochettino’s management with Spurs getting through a lot of running in matches. This is a crucial game for them as they are just one point behind top of the group Monaco but also just one point ahead of Qarabag in bottom so they will need at least a draw here realistically.

Anderlecht would have been devastated after losing to Qarabag on the road after getting a point from Monaco the match before but after beating Tottenham last time out, they have redeemed themselves and a result here would put them in a good position to progress in the competition with a home match against Qarabag still to come. Their worry will be that the last time they even got a point let alone a win out of an away match in the Europa League was back in 2011.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Anderlecht Head to Head Statistics

06/05/84 EUR Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur 1 : 1

These sides have met four times over the years with both sides claiming one win each and the remaining two matches ending one a piece. The match that Anderlecht won came just a fortnight ago in the reverse fixture in this competition where after suffering an early goal from Christian Eriksen, they came back to find what would be the winner in the 75th minute.

Using head to head statistics alone is difficult to come to a conclusion about the result of this match as it is even overall but with Tottenham beating Anderlecht on penalties at the only meeting between these sides that has taken place on home turf for Tottenham.

Tottenham are in average form at the moment with two wins, two draws and a loss in their last five fixtures with that loss coming in the reverse fixture against Anderlecht.They have bounced back from that loss with two wins over Bournemouth and Aston Villa but they will face much stiffer opposition here.

Anderlecht Recent Form

Anderlecht are in fine form with four wins in their last five with the remaining game ending in a tie. As well as their victory over Tottenham, they have secured two solid victories over 4th and 5th place in the league which will give them confidence ahead of this game.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

Mauricio Pochettino will have a full squad to chose from going into this game as there has been no reported injuries but it will be interesting to see what team he sends out onto the pitch as Tottenham face rivals Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Anderlecht Team News:

Anderlecht are also free from any injury concerns at this moment in time which should see them line-up with a similar staring XI that played in the reverse fixture as they have an easier opponent on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Anderlecht Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that this is a very difficult game to predict without seeing the line-ups for both teams but more importantly the Spurs team because Pochettino could easily rest the spine of the team which would obviously effect their performance. But in this game I do see both teams getting on the score sheet as excluding the 0-0 against Liverpool, Tottenham have scored and conceded in all of their last seven matches. And with Pochettino likely to rest at least a couple players from the defence in this match that will only make them more vulnerable but at the other end of the pitch, Anderlecht have conceded in eight of their last nine Europa League matches.

And for my saver I have gone with the result at the end of the match to be a draw as this game is a must not-lose for both teams and Tottenham are unlikely to have their full-strength team out and therefore will struggle against what is expected to be a strong Anderlecht side.
