Tottenham Hotspur travel to Cyprus to face APOEL in Champions League Group H on Tuesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino's team kicked off their Champions League campaign with a thrilling 3-1 victory against German giants Borussia Dortmund at Wembley earlier this month and Spurs will be hoping to build on that result by beating the Cypriot champions.
Spurs made the perfect start to the competition by beating Peter Bosz's charges but Pochettino's team still face a daunting task to reach the knockout stages, with a trip to take on Dortmund in the reverse fixture still to come, as well as a crucial double-header against reigning European champions Real Madrid.
As such, it is vital that Spurs are victorious here and Pochettino's team can be backed at 5/18 (1.28) with SportPesa to deliver in the Cypriot capital; Spurs have been flawless on the road so far this season, winning each of their three competitive matches on their travels thus far.
The Nicosia outfit were beaten 3-0 when they travelled to Madrid to face Zinedine Zidane's charges earlier this month and the Cypriots are struggling to find form for the visit of Tottenham; indeed, APOEL have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions, collecting just four points from their opening three league games.
APOEL boss Giorgios Donis will be hopeful that success against Spurs will provide the catalyst as APOEL look to kickstart their campaign, but the hosts are available at a chunky 21/2 (11.50) with SportPesa to pick up all three points from this match, while the same firm go 19/4 (5.75) that the game ends all square.
Spurs have scored eight goals in three matches away from home so far this season and, with star striker Harry Kane in fine form, the north Londoners will fancy their chances of adding to that tally here; SportPesa go 20/21 (1.95) that Spurs strike in both halves, while the odds compilers offer 6/5 (2.20) that Tottenham score more than two goals in Cyprus.
Spurs were cruising against West Ham at the weekend before Serge Aurier saw red in east London and value may lie in backing Pochettino's team to claim a comfortable win against the Cypriot champions; SportPesa go 39/20 (2.95) that Spurs win by two or more goals on Tuesday.
Backing the visitors to win to nil in this match, though, could be a solid selection; Spurs have kept four clean sheets so far this season, winning three of those matches and siding with the Pochettino's men to march on without conceding against the out-of-sorts hosts could put punters on a path to profit ahead of Tuesday's tussle.
Also considering that whilst APOEL have netted four times this season, they all came in just one game against the league's worst defence and it is, therefore, SportPesa’s 10/11 (1.91) quote for Spurs to win to nil that could represent best value for punters here.
