AVB and Tottenham travel to Italy to face Inter this Thursday with a commanding 3-0 advantage from the first leg, and many will consider that huge advantage enough to see them progress to the next round of the Europa League.
Inter Milan will be massively disappointed by their shocking performance at White Hart Lane last week, but equally will be keen to try and put on a show for their supporters in the San Siro. Is there even a hint of a chance that the Nerazzurri can turn things round? You would have to say no considering Tottenham’s current vein of form.
Regardless of who progresses, how do we see this game panning out?
Inter have been bombproof at the San Siro since September last year, going 16 games unbeaten in all competitions before a surprising 1-0 loss to Bologna just 4 days after their loss to Spurs.
Tottenham’s objective here will be to keep things tight and possibly try and catch the home side on the counter, but the best bet for this clash may be a lack of goals. Spurs last 4 away games in the Europe have features 2 goals or less, and it could be worth opting for under 2.5 goals to be scored.
Verdict: Under 2.5 goals in the game @ 2.00 (Sky Bet)
- Inter @ 2.4 (bet365)
- Draw @ 3.6 (bet365)
- Spurs @ 3.13 (Bet Victor)
Who would oppose Gareth Bale in his current vein of form? He’s scored first in 3 of Tottenham’s last 5 games and will certainly be frightening the ageing Inter back line. The Welsh hitman is a 7.0 chance @7.00 (bet365)
Selected other first goalscorers:
- Jermain Defoe @ 7.5 (Sky Bet)
- Clint Dempsey @ 9.0 (Ladbrokes)
- Tommaso Rocchi@ 8.00 (Betfred)
