Tottenham Hotspur vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

Tottenham Hotspur’s winless streak extended to five games on Saturday when they could only manage a 1-1 draw against a Leicester side who had lost all of their away days in the Premier League this season. This followed on from their League Cup defeat in midweek and three consecutive draws against West Brom, Bayer Leverkusen, and Bournemouth.

Their failures have been down to a simple lack of goals since Harry Kane’s ankle injury, but the star striker is nearing a return to action now. He’s likely to be limited for time on Tuesday, but that could still prove the difference for them. I still don’t think it’s wise to back him to score though, simply due to the fact that he’s not likely to play the full 90 minutes if he returns to action at all.

Spurs’ draw with Bayer Leverkusen in Germany kept them in 2nd position in their Champions League group, with a home loss to Monaco and a win at CSKA Moscow giving them four points. They have only scored twice in their three Champions League games though, and considering they have only netted two in their last four in all competitions as well, I think we could be in for a low scoring affair on Tuesday.

Bayer Leverkusen are suffering from a dry period themselves. They managed a 2-1 win at Wolfsburg on Saturday, but prior to that they had failed to win any of their last four games in all competitions. Away from home they have won two, drawn two, and lost three of their last seven in all competitions, leaving them in a disappointing 10th position in the Bundesliga.

Bayer Leverkusen are in better scoring form than Spurs at the moment, but Mauricio Pocchettino is well known for his organisation at the back and I think, away from home in the Champions League, that the Germans will struggle to break Spurs down. Six of Tottenham’s last seven outings in all competitions have seen fewer than three goals scored as well, so backing Under 2.5 Goals at 1/1 looks a good option here. I’m going for a 1-0 win for Tottenham Hotspur at 7/1 as well.
