APOEL would have been happy with how well they played against Real Madrid in their last game and although it did not get them any points, it would have given the side a lot of confidence. This week, things don’t get any easier as Tottenham travel to play them at home. This is a big game for both sides, but for completely different reasons.
APOEL will be excited to be able to host Tottenham at their home ground. This is a game that the home side don’t ever expect to win but they will hope that they have what it takes to impress the home crowd and cause the Spurs some headaches. This may not be the case but it will still be a big occasion for the club.
Tottenham, on the other hand, knows that they need to have a big win in this game since goal difference will be a major factor for them in regards to qualifying to the round of 16. There are three top-level sides in this group and that makes it hard for any side. On paper, it is expected that Spurs will win with ease but this might not always be the case since traveling abroad has not always been the best experience for the North London club. That being said, I am sure they will win this game and get a much needed three points on the board.
As far as betting is concerned, this is a game where betting on Spurs to win makes no sense since we are getting a very short price on that bet. That being said, there is still a ton of value in this game. I think this will be a high scoring game and as a result, the over 2.5 goals is a bet which looks very good.
