Pacos Ferreira Preview – Could Pacos upset their Premier League opponents?

Pacos are not one of the big names in Portuguese football so even though this is the lowest level of European competition it’s already a big achievement for them to be competing and in with a chance of making it to the group stage. The man who led them to a fifth place finish in their domestic league has moved on to a rival and replaced by the nomadic Jorge Simao.

Simao has spent the majority of his career in Portugal, particularly in the lower leagues, including a spell at Pacos in between 2015/16. Unsuccessful spells in Saudi Arabia and Belgium have not deterred the club’s decision makers who have brought him back for another go.



Our betting prediction
Tottenham 2-0 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 17 August)

Larne of Northern Ireland proved to be no match for Pacos in the previous round of qualification. A 4-0 win at home was more than enough and they could afford a 1-0 loss in the away game. Everybody will be well aware that this tie is going to be a huge step-up in quality and would rank as a significant upset if Pacos do get through to the group stage.

Pacos’ have won one and loss one in their domestic league. Last year’s top scorer Douglas Tanque is yet to start a game with fellow Brazilians Lucas Silva and Denilson preferred in attack.

Tottenham Preview – Will Spurs show their quality and ease themselves into a lead at the halfway stage of this tie?

The Nuno Espirito Santo era got off to the best possible start with a 1-0 win at home to champions Manchester City on Sunday. A goal from the ever-impressive Son Heung-Min gave the former Wolves boss his first three points in charge of Spurs and took some of attention off of Harry Kane’s future. At least for the time being.

There will be a resolution to Kane’s future in less than two weeks with the closing of the transfer window but the England captain could return to action in this game having been named in the squad.

The reason Spurs find themselves in this competition rather than the Champions or Europa League is because of their inconsistencies from last season which seen them finish 7th. The challenge will be to ensure this is a one-off but whilst they are participating in it they will feel they could end that long wait for silverware and will be one of the favourites.

Espirto Santo may also use this competition to give some time to new signings Bryan Gil, Cristian Romero and Pierluigui Gollini as well as some of the younger talent. So it could be a help in the long run.

Pacos Ferreira vs Tottenham Betting Advice

Although there is a limited chance of Pacos qualifying being drawn against a team of Tottenham’s stature does at least give the club some glamour and a reward for their excellent season last time around. For Spurs they will hope this is a one off but their squad does look big enough to handle this commitment along with their domestic challenges.

Unsurprisingly this will be the first time the two teams have met in a competitive game.


Key Facts – Pacos Ferreira vs Tottenham Betting Tip

  • Pacos were too good for Larne in the previous round winning 4-1 on aggregate
  • A seventh place finished in last season’s Premier League means Spurs are in the third tier of European competition this season
  • Harry Kane could return to action in spite of his long-term future remaining uncertain


The new Tottenham boss will know the importance of building a winning mentality so I fully expect them to be going for the victory here. Back them to be winning at half time and again at full time.
