      Tip Reasoning

      Anderlecht’s impressive looking unbeaten streak came to an end in their second group game of the Europa League when they suffered a 1-0 defeat in Azerbaijan at the hands of Qarabag.

      This was their first loss in eight matches in all competitions, and they followed it up with a disappointing draw at home to Mechelen.

      They did manage to get back to form on Sunday though, beating Zulte-Waragem 4-0 to take their points tally to 22 in the Belgian Pro League.

      This leaves them in 3rd position in the table, just one point adrift of Gent and KV Oostende in 1st and 2nd place respectively.

      Tottenham Hotspur are currently in 7th place in the Premier League having picked up 14 points from their opening nine games. This is a fairly disappointing return, but the Premier League offers much more demanding competition than the Belgian leagues.

      Their 0-0 draw against Liverpool on Saturday made it three draws in a row for Spurs after ending level with Swansea and Monaco previously.

      In fact, they have only won one of their last five games in all competitions, although this was an impressive 4-1 defeat of Manchester City.

      While they may not be in the best of form at the moment, there is no doubting that Spurs are a hard to beat team. The high pressure they put on the opposition denies them of space, and it has helped the keep their loss tally for the season to just two defeats from 12 matches.

      I don’t think that Anderlecht have the quality to operate under the Spurs’ high pressing style, so I’m not expecting a home win.

      But Spurs have played out draws in six of their 12 games so far this season, so it’s definitely not a foregone conclusion that the visitors will get a win in Belgium. I think backing a draw offers the best odds, with bet365 offering excellent value odds of 23/10 for it to end all square.
