Tottenham head out on the road for the first time in this season’s Champions League group stage on Tuesday night.

The Lilywhites will be looking to build on their solid start earned against Marseille on Match Day One.

Sporting did impress in their opener with a good away win at Frankfurt. Will they cause Spurs a problem or two?

Sporting Preview – Sporting bring some form

Portuguese side Sporting CP appear to be back in the mood after a little blip they had suffered.

With only one victory in their first four league fixtures of the new campaign, they were slow out of the gates.

They shipped at least two goals in each of those four matches as well, losing back-to-back games along the way against Porto and Chaves.

But things are different now as they have turned their form around.

Sporting have won their last three matches on the spin, scoring nine goals in the process without conceding.

That is more of what will have been expected of the Portuguese Liga side.

However, they do go into this fixture on Tuesday night as heavy underdogs in Champions League odds.

The home win in Sporting vs Tottenham betting is at 14/5 odds with Betfair*

But can they do enough to at least trouble the Lilywhites?

1/1 Correct Score

On Match Day One Sporting made a trip to Germany to face Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Portuguese outfit recorded an impressive win at the Deutsche Bank Park as well, winning 3-0.

All of the goals came in the second half of the match, and it was a game in which Sporting completely dominated possession.

They can expect a tougher time against Premier League side Tottenham of course.

In all but of Sporting’s last seven Champions League matches, there have been at least 3 goals scored.

That’s a fairly strong trend and over 2.5 goals is a quote of 10/11*


Tottenham Preview – Can Spurs Double Up?

There was a winning start made by Tottenham in this season’s Champions League group stage.

They were hosts to Ligue 1 side Marseille in their opener.

While Spurs looked a bit ponderous at times and lacked a clinical edge up front on the night, they got the job done.

Summer signing Richarlison weighed in with both goals in the 2-0 victory.

Across all competitions, this season Antonio Conte’s Tottenham remain undefeated.

They are W5 D2 in all competitions but have only taken the three clean sheets in that sequence.

On the road, they have returned a W1 D2 record so far this season.

A win in Portugal on Tuesday night would see very well positioned in their section, and they will want to wrap up qualification as soon as possible.

With an extra break on the weekend, Tottenham will go to Portugal nice and fresh.

The last time that Tottenham were in the UEFA Champions League, they did struggle on the road.

During their 2019/20 campaign, Tottenham went W1 D1 L2 on their travels.

They conceded at least two goals in three of those four away fixtures.

Tottenham haven’t looked totally convincing at the back this season, and that could leave them just a touch vulnerable.

This isn’t a make-or-break, must-win game for Spurs on the night and they did make really hard work of beating Marseille on Match Day One.

Conte’s men should be easily good enough to avoid defeat, but parity looks the way to go here.
