Tottenham Hotspur v Dnipro Preview, Europa League, Thursday 27th February 2014

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to respond from their 1-0 defeat picked up over in the Ukraine last week in a game where costly mistakes again at the back caused their own downfall and until manager Tim Sherwood does something about his back line, it does seem that this Spurs side will continue to concede goals, no matter who they face and this could see them not only eliminated from this tournament, but also cost them a place in Europe next season if things don’t change.

Dnipro will be on cloud nine after their victory in front of their home fans last week in the first leg and with all the controversy that is going on over in the Ukraine at the moment, it really is a testament to their players that their focus was not affected during that game and they will certainly fancy their chances against Spurs on thursday night and could very well be the ones that progress to the quarter finals stage of the tournament if they can produce a similar display like they did over at the Dnipro Arena.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

Chiriches, Lamela and Sandro continue to remain unavailable for manager Tim Sherwood as each player continues to recover from respective injury problems, Sigurdsson is still nursing a thigh problem, but will undertake a late fitness test to see if he can be involved along with both Kaboul and Kyle Walker who also both missed the first leg defeat last week.

Adebayor could be thrust back in the starting lineup for this game having been rested last week as this has now become a must win game for Tottenham Hotspur if they are to remain in the competition.

Dnipro Team News:

Defender Vitali Mandzyuk is the only casualty for the visitors as he continues to receive treatment for a knee problem picked up in early february. Other than him though manager Ramos has a full squad to choose his starting lineup from which is likely to be the same side that beat Spurs 1-0 over at the Dnipro Arena last week.

Thursday night’s game at White Hart Lane Stadium will become just the second meeting between the two clubs over the years with the previous match last week in the first leg having finished 1-0 to Dnipro.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

The first game between these two sides only saw one goal scored, although there were plenty of chances for both sides to add to that and I am expecting this match at White Hart Lane to see at least a few goals scored, especially if Adebayor does get the nod over Soldado who has been a major flop since his move to Tottenham last summer.

Tottenham Hotspur v Dnipro Recent Form (Left to Right)

Tottenham Hotspur: D W W L L

Dnipro: W D L W W

Dnipro have the clear advantage on the recent form statistics having managed to win 3 of their last 5 matches played, whilst Spurs have struggled in recent weeks having lost their last 2 games on the bounce and only having managed 2 victories in their last 5.

Tottenham Hotspur v Dnipro Match Betting Odds Market

Tottenham Hotspur are the clear odds on favourites to win this game on thursday night with the online bookmakers, which should not come as too much of a surprise as it really is a must win game for the Premiership side, but with their current best price available of 4/7 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) this does look a bit short in my opinion given their recent couple of performances.

The Draw would be enough to send Dnipro through to the quarter finals and they will certainly come to North London with a gameplan that will see them try and protect their 1-0 lead picked up in the first leg and with the Spurs defence prone to mistakes the visitors could easily grab another one in this game and for me this match does have a strong possibility of finishing all square at a best price of 10/3 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Dnipro will obviously fancy their chances of causing a huge upset on thursday night and will be confident about scoring having already unlocked the dodgy Spurs defence in the home leg last week, so although not many people will expect the little un-known side from Ukraine to win this game, I do think their current best price of 6/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) is a overpriced in my opinion.

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

For Tottenham Hotspur to win this game on thursday night and book their place in the quarter finals then Tim Sherwood has to play his strongest team which should include Adebayor, Kaboul and Lloris. If he decides that he can get away with playing the same team that lost last week over in the Ukraine then I can certainly see Dnipro going through to the quarter finals stage.

Dnipro created a number of chances last week in the first leg and I really do fancy them to score in this game, but if Spurs are fielding their strongest lineup then I would expect the hosts to score the goals they need and for me this game really does hang in the balance depending on what team the Tottenham manager goes with.
