Tottenham can keep their Europa League unbeaten record intact in Brussels
Mauricio Pochettino may want to invoke the Spirit of ’84 as his Tottenham Hotspur team travel to the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium to face Anderlecht, their opponents in the final of the UEFA Cup 30 years ago.
Spurs won that two-legged final on penalties after both matches had ended as 1-1 draws. We are offering 22/5 for that outcome again in our Correct Score betting.
It also ended 1-1 when the teams met in Brussels in 2007 and three of Spurs’ six previous matches against teams from Belgium in European competition have ended in draws so the stalemate could be looking good at 23/10 in our Full Time Results betting as the Londoners look to extend their unbeaten record in Group J of the Europa League.
However, they should have won in Monaco two weeks ago and top the section after beating Qarabag on matchday one, though will be without the injured Seung-min Son and Nacer Chadli for a few weeks so the latter misses a return to his homeland.
But Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Moussa Dembele will all be faces familiar to Belgian fans and Tottenham are likely to field a strong side for what is a key clash with Delle Alli, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane all likely starters – Italian Stefan Okaka is likely lead the Anderlecht attack and is 9/4 to be an Anytime Goalscorer with Alli at 4/1.
The match kicks off at 6.00pm on Thursday, October 22nd at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, Brussels
