Tottenham 11/4 to beat Barcelona in Wednesdays Champions League clash

Competition: Champions League

Market: Tottenham win

Odds: 11/4 @ Bet 365

Looking to pick up their first win in this years Champions League group stage, Tottenham will welcome the defending La Liga champions to Wembley on Wednesday night.

Starting with Mauricio Pochettino’s side, Tottenham’s Argentinian boss will be desperate to bounce back from their opening game defeat against Inter Milan. Despite leading at the San Siro, Spurs slumped to two late goals and left Italy empty handed. While their three defeats on the bounce offering some cause for concern, the Lilywhites have bounced back with a hat-trick of wins in all competitions. Tottenham will be looking for England captain Harry Kane to carry on his recent goalscoring form. Although he was suffering a drought for club and country, the two-time Golden Boot winner now has three in his last two.

As for the defending Spanish champions, while it was the usual bright start that many expected for Barcelona, Ernesto Valverde’s side have hit a worrying patch of form. Fighting back to take a point off of Athletic Bilbao at the Nou Camp over the weekend, the 25-time La Liga kings are now without a win in their last three. Failing to come past the likes of Girona and a 2-1 loss away at Leganes, Barca have also now recorded just one clean sheet in their last six matches in all competitions. Given their recent struggles, we’re backing another tricky nights work for Valverde’s visitors.
