Spurs v Anderlecht - betting preview with Marathonbet
04 November 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs versus Anderlecht has huge historical meaning at White Hart Lane – and there is a betting pattern as well.
Thursday night’s Europa League Group encounter represents the first time Anderlecht have played at the Lane since the UEFA Cup Final of 1984, where Graham Roberts scored late to take the game into extra time and then Tony Parks kept out two penalties in the shoot-out to help Spurs to a famous win.
The teams have now met four times in European competition after Anderlecht’s win in the first Group J meeting in Brussels a fortnight ago.
Both teams have scored in all four games stretching back to both legs of the final (both ended 1-1) in 1984 so if you fancy history to repeat itself, both teams to score is priced at 41/50 at Marathonbet. Both teams to score and a Spurs win is 49/20.
The goals are flowing at Spurs at the moment with over 2.5 goals in the games against Anderlecht, Bournemouth and Villa - go for a Spurs win with over 2.5 goals in the game this time around and you’ll find odds at 191/100.
If you fancy Anderlecht to win, the Belgians are priced at 22/5.
