Tottenham v. Bayer Leverkusen: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips.
This betting preview contains recent form, predicted lineups, injury news, match predictions and betting tips for Tottenham vs. Bayer Leverkusen.
Fixture: Tottenham v. Bayer Leverkusen
Tournament: Champions League
Venue: Wembley, London
Date: Wednesday 2nd November
Tottenham head into their second matchup with Bayer Leverkusen on the back of a five match winless streak in all competitions. Spurs remain incredibly sturdy at the back, but as of late they lack a finishing touch in front of goal. With home advantage, Tottenham enter the match as slight favorites.
Bayer have had issues of their own lately, as well, but a 2-1 comeback victory over Bundesliga strugglers Wolfsburg may instill some confidence in their side. They’ll likely look to Chicharito and Hakan Calhanoglu for any attacking inspiration, but they’ll face steep competition from a Dier & Vertonghen center back pairing that is rear-guarded by Hugo Lloris.
There was nothing to separate the two sides when they met just over a fortnight ago at the BayArena in Germany. Tottenham stormed out of the gates and registered all of their shots (6) in the first half, whilst Bayer dominated the second half registering 13 shots at the Spurs goal.
Just one point separates the two sides in Group E, making this one a six pointer. Bayer have drawn all three of their matches so far and whilst Tottenham look poor in attack, their defensive efforts have more than compensated.
