Preview: Tottenham vs. Bayer Leverkusen – Betting Odds, Team News, Tips and Predictions

02-11-2016-tottenham-vs-bayer-levekusen-pa-images-icon-sportA victory for Spurs at Wembley this evening would be a major boost in their chances of reaching the knockout stage of this season’s Champions League. Spurs left Germany with a hard-fought goalless draw and they’re sat second in Group E.

Leverkusen have drawn every game in the group so far and desperately need a win to kick start their campaign, however form isn’t on their side as they’ve only won 2 of their last 24 away games in the Champions League.

Team News

Harry Kane’s return is imminent, however it’s likely that he’ll be saved for the game against Arsenal at the weekend and won’t feature tonight. Toby Alderweireld is also close to a return, but Erik Lamela has a hip complaint and is doubtful.


• Tottenham’s only previous Champions League game at Wembley ended in a defeat to Monaco last month.
• Leverkusen have drawn one and lost seven of their last eight away games to English opposition in the Champions League.
• Leverkusen have drawn their last five Champions League group games.
• Spurs have failed to score more than one goal in their last seven Champions League games.
• Javier Hernandez has scored seven goals in his last 10 Champions League starts.

Match Prediction and Odds

• 1-1 (NetBet odds 6/1)
• Javier Hernandez to score first (NetBet odds 11/2)
