Spurs vs Dnipro - betting preview with Betfred
27 February 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs suffered a narrow loss late on in Ukraine last week but they still have every chance of progressing.
Since 2008/09 Spurs have won 16 and lost only two out of 24 European home games and one of those defeats was against Real Madrid.
Dnipropetrovsk have travelled to Britain five times since 1990 and are yet to win, losing 3-0 in their two trips to English teams.
Moreover, they’ve lost eight out of nine trips to teams from the Big Five leagues since 2001/02.
Domestically they’ve kept just two clean sheets in their last 13 away matches, and in the past four seasons they’ve failed to win any of their 15 trips to top-five finishers.
They tend to be a better first-half team as in their last 10 away matches they’ve trailed at the break just once while they’ve lost the second half five times.
With the Ukrainian league on hiatus, Spurs should be able to take advantage of any lack of match fitness the longer the game goes on. With that in mind, the 16/5 for Draw/Spurs on the Half-Time/Full-Time market looks worth taking.
Backing the Half-Time 0-0 at 2/1 also appeals as since 2004/05, 55 teams have looked to overturn a first leg deficit in the Last 32 of the Europa League and 25 of the second legs have been goalless at the break.
Furthermore, 34 of the games have had fewer than three goals and that suggests the current price for Under 2.5 Goals of 10/11 is outstanding value.
