Betting: Back Tottenham at 40/1 or Real Madrid at 30/1 for Wembley showdown

ShareClose Comments
Both teams look well placed for a spot in the knockout stages of the Champions League but who will come out on top in Wednesday's Group H clash?

One of the standout fixtures of the upcoming Champions League round sees Tottenham host Real Madrid at Wembley after the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.

In fact, the teams have identical European records this term with seven points, seven goals scored and two conceded. Sitting six points ahead of third place Borussia Dortmund, this clash could go a long way towards deciding who qualifies in pole position in Group H.

In what looks to be a well-balanced game, Betfair have lined up two huge price boosts for anyone who is yet to open an account.


Anyone registering through the link provided can take either 40/1 (41.0) on Tottenham to win the game or 30/1 (31.0) about Zinedine Zidane's side coming out on top in London. £1 max bet. Winnings paid in free bets. T&Cs apply.

Spurs will take heart from their 3-1 win over Dortmund on match day one and indeed their showing in Madrid two weeks ago where they went toe-to-toe with the European champions, even taking the lead before being pegged back by Cristiano Ronaldo's goal.

Usually priced at 9/4 (3.25), the offer of 40/1 (41.0) about Mauricio Pochettino's men winning will catch the eye of some punters who believe Los Blancos are more vulnerable than in previous years on the European stage.

Madrid will be missing former Tottenham star Gareth Bale, who hasn't been included in the squad for this game and having lost 2-1 at newly promoted Girona at the weekend, Zidane's side certainly don't have that air of invincibility that has seen them win back-to-back Champions League crowns.

However, the visitors do a wealth of experience in this competition, something Tottenham don't have in abundance. With doubts over Harry Kane's involvement and with Spurs yet to make Wembley anything close to the fortress that White Hart Lane had become, the opportunity to side with Real at a huge 30/1 (31.0) will have plenty of backers regardless of their stuttering domestic results this season.

Betfair currently have an away win priced at 5/4 (2.25) so they clearly feel that it is Zidane's side who hold the upper hand, even without Bale to call upon.

Whichever side you're on ahead of Wednesday's clash, these offers mean there's the chance to bag a huge double-figure price winner to kick start your new Betfair account.
