Tromso - Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: Back solid Spurs to ease the pain of City catastrophe

Andre Villas-Boas' men will look to put recent defeats behind them when they take on Steinar Nilsen's men in Norway and our tipster is backing the visitors to win to nil here
Tottenham Hotspur will look to put the humiliation of Sunday’s 6-0 rout at the hands of Manchester City behind them when they make the long trip to Norway to take on Tromso in the Europa League group stages on Thursday evening.

With four wins out of four in the group stages thus far, Andre Villas-Boas’ men are already assured of a place in the next round of the competition and can be backed at just 1/3 (1.34) with Coral to ensure that they claim top spot in the group by claiming all three points here.

Tromso have collected just a solitary point from their first four group matches and are available at a chunky 8/1 (9.0) with Coral to shock Spurs on Thursday while the draw is rated as a 4/1 (5.0) chance with the same firm.

Spurs have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions inside 90 minutes but have often produced their best form in the Europa League this season and Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping for a welcome return to form for his side ahead of this weekend’s Premier League crunch clash against Manchester United at White Hart Lane. Despite plenty of changes expected, the visiting side should have too much for the hosts.

Spurs have notched an impressive 17 goals in six Europa League matches thus far this term and, with just one goal conceded in Europe, there may be value in backing the north Londoners to win to nil at a juicy 21/20 (2.05) with Coral here.

Tromso have scored just one goal in their last five Europa League ties while Steinar Nilsen’s men have notched just three goals in their last five matches in all competitions.

The Norwegian outfit are enduring a dire run of form at present, having won just one of their last eleven games and Thursday’s fixture should provide the perfect tonic for Andre Villas-Boas’ side ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Manchester United.

Therefore, punters are advised to snap up Coral’s generous 21/20 (2.05) quote for Spurs to win to nil in Norway on Thursday evening.
