Lionsbet Preview: Tottenham Hotspur vs Stoke City: Back the Lilywhites to win the first half at Wembley
Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be looking to start this game on a flying note having done the same in the midweek
Having qualified for the knock-out stage of the Champions League as group leaders, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will now shift their attention back to the English top flight and continue their push for the top four finish. They are currently in the sixth spot with 25 points from 15 games, 18 points adrift of leaders, Manchester City.
The Lilywhites have triumphed in six of their last eight games at Wembley and are looking good to come out on top here following their emphatic 3-0 win over APOEL on Wednesday night. LionsBet is offering (1.30) for them to record their eighth league win in the encounter.
Eight of their last 35 meetings with their visitors have ended in draw and punters can back the same outcome at an offer of (6.00).
On the other hand, Mark Hughes’ side will be hoping to build on their 2-1 victory over Swansea City last time out having previously gone four games without a win.
However, having lost 24 of their 35 meetings with Spurs it is clear why they have been tagged underdogs for the tie at the odds of (11.00).
Meanwhile, goals will be expected to be at a premium after the reverse fixture ended 4-0 in favour of the London outfit. The bookmakers are offering (1.50) for more than three goals and (1.80) for both sides NOT to score.
