Qarabag vs Tottenham 26 Nov 2015: Europa League Preview and Predictions

Spurs are back in action in the Europa league this week and after winning on the weekend, they will go into this match with confidence. Tottenham will be facing Qarabag away from home and this match might be a little tighter than it looks on paper.

Qarabag go into this match after winning their last two games in their domestic tournament. This side sits in third place in the Azerbaijan Premier League and this will give this side some belief. Furthermore they will be at home which is going to give them a boost since the home crowds in Azerbaijan make a big difference. Having said that, they will now how good Tottenham are and doubts may creep in considering the fact that they are on paper a world behind Spurs.

Tottenham on the other hand will have no doubts in their ability going into this encounter. This side has been winning lately and they will want to keep up the good work. A win for Spurs here will guarantee a spot for them in the knockout stage of the competition and that will be a priority for them. The only problem that English side might have is the travelling. Azerbaijan is a long way from White Hart Lane and with a big game against Chelsea coming up, there might be quite a few key players rested.

Overall Spurs should win this game. They are clearly the better side and ever a second grade Tottenham side should be too good. Qarabag will hope that they home ground advantage will help them but I don’t think it will be enough. I think that this game is going to be an easy win from Spurs but the away pressure will stop it from being a smashing. We are getting Spur -0.5 at 2.00 and honestly that should be a safe bet so we should take it. 

Pick:
Tottenham (-0.5)
