Europa League – Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview

Anderlecht will have been happy with a point in the opening game of the group stage against Monaco just to get them started and something to build off of but after losing Qarabag last week, it has left them in last position in the group. And if they were to lose this game here then they would be left in a very difficult position which is why a huge performance is needed from the Belgian’s here.

Anderlecht have got off to a decent start to their domestic campaign and are now unbeaten in eight matches but they need to transform that form in to the Europa League. Anderlecht have lost just one home game in the whole of 2015 which will give them great confidence of getting at least a point from this tough match.

Tottenham have started to pick up some form of late, they are now unbeaten since the opening weekend of the Premiership and will be happy with their start to the Europa League after beating Qarabag and getting a point away from home against Monaco. Tottenham have lost just one of their last eleven matches and I think that they would be pleased to get a point from this match as it will set them up nicely for the second half of the group stage.

Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head Statistics

09/12/07 EUR Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur 1 : 1
23/05/84 EUR Tottenham Hotspur vs Anderlecht 1 : 1 (4 : 3 Pen)
06/05/84 EUR Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur 1 : 1

These two sides have met just three times throughout their joint history with Tottenham slightly edging the meetings after beating Anderlecht in the 1984 Final on penalties. All three matches have finished 1-1 in 90 minutes with the most recent meetings coming in 2007.

Two of those meetings took place in Anderlecht but as both ended 1-1, neither team comes out of the games with an advantage.

Using head to head statistics alone, it would suggest that the match on Thursday will end in a draw.

Anderlecht Recent Form

18/10/15 JUP Waregem vs Anderlecht 0 : 4
04/10/15 JUP Anderlecht vs KV Mechelen 1 : 1
01/10/15 EUR Qarabag vs Anderlecht 1 : 0
27/09/15 JUP Anderlecht vs St. Truiden 1 : 0
23/09/15 BEL Anderlecht vs Spouwen-Mopertingen 3 : 1

Anderlecht are in decent form with three wins, a draw and a loss in their last five matches but with that loss coming against Qarabag in the Europa League, it puts huge pressure on them to get a result here.

Tottenham Hotspur Recent Form

17/10/15 BPL Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool 0 : 0
14/10/15 BPL Swansea vs Tottenham Hotspur 2 : 2
01/10/15 EUR Monaco vs Tottenham Hotspur 1 : 1
26/09/15 BPL Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City 4 : 1
23/09/15 CAP Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal 1 : 2

On the surface it looks as if Tottenham are struggling for form as they have won just one of their last five fixtures whilst drawing three and losing the remaining game but they have faced tough opposition in those five games. Their win came against Manchester City which shows their strength but since then, they have faced both Swansea and Monaco away from home and then Liverpool at home in the league where all three have resulted in a point being taken from the game.

Anderlecht Team News:

Anderlecht will have their full complement of players available for selection in this one and it will be interesting to see if they make any changes going into this game. Matias Suarez and Youri Tielemans will be pushing for a place in the side with strong performaces from both off the bench recently.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

Tottenham will be without Nacer Chadli who picked up an injury against Liverpool that has ruled him out for around six weeks which should see either Heung-Min Son return or possibly Andros Townsend.

Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the three matches that have taken place between these two sides, there has been a total of six goals meaning that there has been an average goals per game of exactly 2. And as the two matches at Anderlecht have also ended in 1-1 draws, that means that the average goals per game there is also 2.

Therefore both sets of data suggest that the game on Thursday evening should see around two goals posted between the two sides.

Anderlecht vs Tottenham Hotspur Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

Both teams here will not want to lose the match so I think a draw in this match is great value. And also, Anderlecht have drew three of their last five home games whilst Tottenham have drew three of their last four away games. That is why my banker in this match is for the Result to be a draw because at 12/5, I couldn’t ignore the value.

For my saver, I have gone along the same lines with a correct score prediction of 1-1. All three previous meetings between these sides have finished 1-1 in 90 minutes as well as the fact that both Anderlecht and Tottenham have had two 1-1 draws in their last four home and away matches respectively.
