Europa League Match: Antwerp vs Tottenham Hotspurs| Preview and Prediction

 


Tottenham visits Antwerp to honor Mattch Day 2 of the Europa League game


This is the first time Antwerp and Tottenham Hotspur are meeting in a competitive fixture.


Both Antwerp and Tottenham Hotspur managed to produce a win on Match Day 1 of the Europa League Group Stage and they will be looking to double that up on Thursday. The winning team will feel they are in a very good position to earn qualification to the Last 32 in the coming weeks and this should be a pretty good watch. 


The changes that Jose Mourinho is likely to make should mean Tottenham Hotspur rest some key names, but they showed in the win over LASK that it should not weaken them too much. They have really produced some of their best football away from home and I think Mourinho will be looking for another victory here which will give Tottenham Hotspur every chance of securing their place in the Last 32 following the two games against Ludogorets. 


I have to credit Antwerp for a long unbeaten run at home, but they don't often face teams of the quality of Tottenham Hotspur. The lack of European experience won't help Antwerp and they concede too many goals which is always an issue when going up several levels of quality in terms of an opponent. Even with the changes expected, I think Tottenham Hotspur will be too vibrant for Antwerp in the final third and I will back them to win and cover the Asian Handicap.


PREDICTION

Take Tottenham to score and over 1.5 goals

Alternative 

1-3 (Tottenham win)
