Tottenham Hotspur v Sunderland Preview, 2013 Barclays Asia Trophy, Wednesday 24th July 2013

Andre Villas-Boas and his Tottenham Hotspur side will be looking at this tournament as the perfect preparation for their season campaign which gets underway in a few weeks time and having won the trophy in their only other appearance back in 2009 the fans and players will obviously be confident of winning it again.

Sunderland are making their first appearance in the tournament and under the guidance of manager Paolo Di Canio who has brought in a number of new summer signings to the side they too will be confident of doing well and this provides the club with a real chance to build some much needed confidence for their opening Barclays Premiership league match opener at home against Fulham on August 17th.

The two clubs have met each other on 98 previous occassion’s with Tottenham having won 37, Sunderland having won 34 and there having been 27 Draws which shows an overall picture of there not being much to choose between the two clubs.

However in recent meetings, Tottenham Hotspur have dominated as shown in our head to head table shown above where they have won an impressive 4 of the last 5 meetings, remaining unbeaten with the other game ending all square and when we compare the strength of the two squads, Tottenham Hotspur look the more likely to come away from this game with the victory.

Not a game to get too carried away with when looking for a betting opportunity as with both manager likely to make a number of changes to their side during this one the result really could go either way.

Tottenham Hotspur do have the stronger squad in my opinion and with a certain Mr Gareth Bale involved who has been setting the world alight with his breath-taking performances, Andre Villas-Boas’s side do look the more likely to come away as the winners here, with Gareth Bale looking good value at 11/4 to open the scoring.
