Tottenham v Lyon Betting Tips February 14th 2013
Tip #1: Back Tottenham to win @ 1.80 with bet365
Tip #2: Back Draw No Bet Tottenham @ 1.30 with bet365
Despite placing 4th in the Premier League last season, Tottenham did not manage to qualify for Champions League, because of the fact that Chelsea did not place in Top 4, and won the tournament which won them a spot. The team finished 2nd in group J, with 10 points, two behind the leader Lazio, avoiding defeat in all 6 games. Tottenham’s record was W2-D4-L0, scoring 8 goals and conceding 4. The opponent they will be facing is also unbeaten, but with a better win-draw ratio 5-1. This would be Tottenham’s 4th participation in the round of 32 in Europa League/UEFA Cup. Two out of the three time, the team has managed to progress in the round of 16, doing so the first tow times, and missing out the last time in season 2008/9. Under the command of Villas-Boas the team started clumsy, but has now improved a lot and the team is just 1 point away from the 3rd spot in Premier League. The odds for Tottenham to win this match are @ 1.80 which seems fair, considering they have the home field advantage and are unbeaten this season, but their opponent is also unbeaten and will come out for a victory.

The team has managed to score 9 goals in those games and conceded just 2. Against English teams, Lyon struggles, with record W3-D6-L5 overall, away record in England W2-D1-L4. This is the first time Lyon is in Europa League since season 2002/03 and we are used to seeing them in Champions League. Their best achievement in UEFA Cup was back in 1999, when they managed to reach the quarter-finals. There have been two french teams coming on White Hart Lane against Tottenham and both lost, although many years ago, one of them was Lyon. The odds for the French team to win this match are @ 4.50, while the draw is priced @ 3.50. Despite Lyon’s good record of 5 victories and 1 draw, we believe they will not manage to win this one.
Tottenham is unbeaten this season in Europa league, but so is Lyon. The Spurs have a 100% winning home record against French team, but it has been over 30 years since the last visit. Overall the Spurs are showing good condition and great shape so we expect them to win here. Back Tottenham to win @ 1.80 with bet365.
