Royal Antwerp FC is welcoming Tottenham to Bosuilstadion in round 2 in the UEFA Europa League.
Antwerp has ended in 4th place last season in the Belgian First Division A, but they got awarded with the Europa League spot because they reached the Belgian Cup finals. Antwerp is in great form at the moment, and they haven’t lost any of their last 7 games while winning 6 of those 7 games. Antwerp is at the top of the First Division A standings with 20 points, 21 scored goals, and 14 conceded goals so far. Antwerp was playing against Ludogorets on the road in the first Europa League game last week, and they have had 48% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Antwerp was losing this match in the 46th minute, but they were able to turn the game around with 2 quick goals, and Antwerp has won this match 1-2. Gerkens and Refaelov have each scored 1 goal for Antwerp so far, while Juklerod added 1 assist. Matheus, Coopman, De Sart, and Buta are all injured for Royal Antwerp. There are no superstars or any well-known players playing for Antwerp, but they are led by a good coach, and at least for now, Antwerp is doing incredibly well in the Belgian national league.
Tottenham hasn’t lost any of their last 10 games while winning their last 2 games. During this stretch, Tottenham has scored 4 goals while conceding 0 goals. Tottenham is also doing well in the EPL where they have won their last match against Burnley on the road. This was a tough game, but Tottenham was able to score a goal in the 76th minute, and that was enough for a 0-1 victory on the road. Tottenham is now in 5th place in the EPL standings with 11 points. In the Europa League, Tottenham was playing against LASK at home last week, and they have had 55% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a decent 81% of the correct passes. Tottenham was in complete control in this game, and they have deservedly won 3-0. Son and Moura have each scored 1 goal for Tottenham in the Europa League so far, while Vinicius added 2 assists. There are no injuries or suspensions in Tottenham as of right now. This is the first time in a while that coach Mourinho will have all of his players at his disposal, and it will certainly help them in this dense schedule. Tottenham is playing well, and Kane and Son are playing fantastic soccer this season, and they are probably the best duo in Europe right now.
The bookies are expecting goals in this game, and so do I. Both teams are applying well, and Antwerp doesn’t have the defense to stop Tottenham, but they can be a dangerous team. I will take the goals in this one.
