Tottenham Hotspur v Espanyol Preview, Pre Season Friendly, Saturday 10th August 2013

It’s not been a productive pre-season for Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas as with rumours still rife about the departure of star player Gareth Bale, the side’s recent results seem to reflect that the players minds are not completely on the job as defeats by Sunderland, MK Dons and Monaco have all Spurs fans questioning what the new season has in store.

Espanyol have not done much better in their pre-season warmup either, from the three games they have been involved in they have lost one and draw the other two and those results have hardly inspired their fans who must be dreading the start of their new season which begins with an away match against Celta Vigo on monday 19th August.

Tottenham Hotspur v Espanyol Team News

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

Gareth Bale will probably be unlikely to feature as he does seem destined to be sold to Real Madrid for what will be a world record fee, but we could see new signing’s Paulinho, Chadli and Soldado feature at some point during the game.

Espanyol Team News:

The visitors are expected to bring a strong squad to White Hart Lane, so players like Sergio García, Lanzarote, Victor Sanchez, Simao and Alfonso should all get some playing time during this one.

Tottenham Hotspur v Espanyol Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

If Tottenham Hotspur lose this game then I can see them having a very tough time of it this season and any hopes of finishing in a top four position will become an almost impossibility, however if manager Andre Villas-Boas decides to play his new signing’s then a victory does look likely as with a packed out stadium fully behind them the players will surely rise to the occasion.

Espanyol haven’t made any significant new signing’s to their squad which could only manage a 13th place finish in the Spanish Primera last season and I can’t honestly see them doing any better than that this time around and it would come as a bit of a shock to see them win this game in my opinion.

The betting options for this game will probably be quite limited as the online bookmakers will surely have the host’s priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this match, so with the average goals per game stats suggesting a couple of goals to be scored, the anytime goal scorer markets and total match goals could be the way to go when looking for some value.
