Tottenham Hotspur v Tromso Preview, Europa League, Thursday 19th September 2013

Things are starting to look very good for Tottenham Hotspur as with the club currently sitting in 3rd place of the Premiership league table and just 1pt behind leaders Liverpool and the new signings by manager Andre Villas-Boas already having an impact, this could be a very exciting season for all spurs fans and Tromso look to be in for a very difficult game come thursday night in North London.

Tromso play their domestic football in the Norwegian Eliteserien and have just 7 games to go until their season is finished and this probably can’t happen soon enough for their fans, as Tromso are having a torrid time of it this season and sit just once place above the relegation play-off spot. This competition is obviously not top of their priorities at the moment so I don’t expect the manager to risk key players in a game that he knows deep down his side is going to lose and this should be one way traffic all the way for the hosts.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News :

Manager Villas-Boas has virtualy a full squad to choose his starting eleven from with the exception of midfielder Etienne Capoue who is still recovering from a malleolar injury picked up in the 1-0 defeat against Arsenal.

Jermain Defoe, Aarron Lennon, Chadli, Kaboul and Erik Lamela should all be involved having missed the weekend’s victory against Norwich City and spurs fans will be keen to see what the new wonderkid signing from Roma has to offer.

Tromso Team News :

Coach Agnar Christensen has no injury problems or suspensions to contend with but doesn’t look likely to risk all of his star players for this game with his side involved in a fierce battle for survival in the Norwegian Eliteserien.

Zdenek Ondrášek, Remi Johansen and Thomas Bendiksen have scored 17 goals between them this season and will provide the main danger for the spurs defence if given the green light to play.

Tottenham Hotspur v Tromso Head to Head Statistics

Thursday night’s game from White Hart Lane Stadium will become the first time these two sides have met each other before, so we have provided you with results of each teams last 3 matches in our head to head stats table shown below.

Who Has The Advantage ?

Both sides head into this game on the back of a victory, Tottenham Hotspur were comfortable 2-0 winners against Norwich City at the weekend in a match that saw Villa-Boas side secure an incredible 69% possession and Tromso caused a huge upset by beating current league leaders Ronsenborg 1-0.

Average Goals Per Game ?

11 goals have been scored in the previous 6 games that both sides have played between them which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 1.83 which suggests that this game might only see one or two goals scored on thursday night.

Tottenham Hotspur dominate the recent form stats having won four of their last five games, losing just once. Tromso have managed just two victories from their last five games, of which they have lost twice.

Tottenham Hotspur v Tromso Match Betting Odds Market

Tottenham Hotspur are the clear odds on favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game at a very short price of 1/6 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit + £25 Matched Free Bet for New Customers) which will come as no real shock to anyone, but does this represent value ?

The Draw looks an unlikely result at a current best price of 7/1 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) but with the goal stats suggesting only one or two goals to be scored in this game, this could turn out to be huge value for those willing to take a risk.

Tromso have it all to do here according to the online bookmakers who currently offer a best price of 30/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) and for me this looks way overpriced as they have just beaten Rosenborg who lead the Norwegian Eliteserien and knocked out Besiktas in the previous round who are certainly no easy side to beat.

Tottenham Hotspur v Tromso Betting Predictions:

A game that 95% of people will have down as a home win on their midweek football coupon and although it does look unlikely that Tromso will win this game there is a lot to like about their current odds with them having beaten Rosenborg and dumped out Besiktas in the previous round.

However, this Tottenham side looks to be one of the best for many years and although manager Villas-Boas will probably rest a few of his first team players for this one, they do do have squad capable of beating anyone at the moment and with home advantage it would be a huge shock if Tottenham didn’t win this game.

The goal stats don’t see this game seeing too many goals being scored and the Norwegian side will probably adapt a very defensive formation in the hope of securing a point from this game, but that could become their undoing as with the explosive speed that this Spurs side has available to them, it should only be a matter of time before the Tromso net is bulging with the first Tottenham goal of the night.
