Tottenham Hotspur - Dnipro Betting Preview: Back Spurs to come from behind and progress

After conceding a late goal last week, Spurs return to White Hart Lane looking to overturn a one goal deficit to progress and our tipster is backing them to do so
After winning eight straight Europa League matches, Tottenham Hotspur were brought back down to earth with a bang last week when they travelled to Ukraine to face Dnipro in the last 16 of the competition.

Former Spurs boss Juande Ramos got the better of the Londoners, who chose for a number of first team players to stay in England.

With a 1-0 aggregate lead to turn around, you can be sure Tim Sherwood will recall the big guns and look to carry on their fine form in Europe at home.

Spurs have won all four matches at White Hart Lane this season, scoring 12 goals conceding only twice. bet365 price them at 8/15 (1.53) to win the match.

Dnipro are currently on their winter break and have been since the start of December, which makes their result against Tottenham even more impressive. Ramos' men have only been beaten twice in the European competition this season, with Fiorentina handing out the defeats home and away.

With them winning their other matches, they will prove no pushovers as they travel to London and expect them to really push Spurs. bet365 price them at 6/1 (7.00) to win again, with the same firm backing the draw at 10/3 (4.33).

With Spurs too short to back in the match result market, it's worth looking at the qualifying market, with Tottenham slight underdogs at 19/20 (1.95) as they trail from the first leg. With Dnipro 17/20 (1.85) with bet365, the market is favouring the visitors.

With Jermain Defoe out of the match due to injury, Spurs and Sherwood won't be able to rely on the striker who has excelled in the competition this year.

Despite this loss, the price of them to qualify at 19/20 (1.95) can't be avoided. With Emmanuel Adebayor firing on all cylinders this season, expect him to lead the line and Spurs to continue their fine form at home in the Europa League and progress to the next round.
