Spurs v Sporting Betting Tips & Predictions

Antonio Conte’s side are 11/21 favourites for a vital Champions League contest with Sporting at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday night.

Sporting are aiming to bounce back from consecutive Champions League defeats to Marseille when they visit north London this week.

Group D is wide open with three points separating the four teams. Spurs are top on seven points coming into this match, but could fall out of the top two if they lose. 

Having notched a win when these teams met in Lisbon, Sporting carry confidence into this fixture. Spurs have hit a poor run of form, losing their last two Premier League matches. 

Both Teams To Score: Yes

4/5 (Betfred)

Sporting have only failed to score once since August. Spurs have found the net in all of their home fixtures this season, and have only kept one clean sheet in their last four at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

Both teams have scored in five of Sporting’s last six in all competitions. Their attack tormented Tottenham earlier in the group stage, and should be able to get on the scoresheet on Wednesday night. 

Total Home Goals: Over 2.5

33/20 (Unibet)

Sporting are without several defenders in Sebastien Coates, Luis Neto, Ricardo Esgaio and Jeremiah St. Juste. Spurs’ attack is weakened with Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski sidelined, but this is a matchup for Harry Kane and Heung-min Son to wreak havoc.

Spurs were poor at home to Newcastle at the weekend, but they have scored over 2.5 goals on three occasions at home this season. Only five teams have amassed more expected goals in the Champions League so far, while Sporting’s defence is in the bottom 10 in expected goals conceded. 

To Score Two Or More Goals: Harry Kane

4/1 (Bet365)

Harry Kane has 3.1 expected goals in the Champions League (second only to Erling Haaland) and just a lone converted penalty to show for it.

The England captain is getting shots off out at an impressive rate, including five against Newcastle at the weekend. He also managed seven over the two matches against Eintracht Frankfurt.

If the Sporting defence struggles as expected, Kane is bound to be the beneficiary. This is a great price on two or more goals.
