Tottenham Hotspur host Barcelona at Wembley on Wednesday night in a significant group B clash in the Champions League, kicking off at 8:00pm local time. Tottenham had suffered a disappointing loss at Inter Milan on match day one, conceding two goals in the last five minutes to lose 2-1 at Inter Milan, whilst Barcelona won comfortably 4-0 at home to PSV Eindhoven, with Lionel Messi scoring a hat-trick.

Home Team: Tottenham Hotspur

tottenham hotspur betting.footballThis is just the type of games Tottenham would have dreamt about a few years ago in pursuing their dreams of reaching Champions League football. Now, Tottenham have been consistently in European’s top competition in the last fear years and following meetings with Juventus, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, they now welcome Barcelona to Wembley Stadium. Tottenham seem to get drawn difficult groups, and it’s no different this season and already they are up against it, with their qualification hopes in the balance. They’ll know that defeat to Barcelona will make it very difficult for them to progress to the knockout stages, as they’ll sit on 0 points after two games. Harry Kane is back in scoring form for the club, and Tottenham are back to winning ways following that devastating loss to Inter Milan a few weeks ago. Two wins, four goals, three from Harry Kane has put belief back into Spurs following a very tough spell for Tottenham. Will they be able to hold of European giants Barcelona?

Away Team: Barcelona

Barcelona are always tipped to win the Champions League, but since their success back in 2015, they have had to begrudgingly watch Real Madrid win it three times in a row as they themselves have always come up short. Barcelona will be inspired more than ever to recapture the Champions League trophy, which would be their 6th title in their in history. Barcelona have had a catastrophic week for their very high standards, picking up just two points from three La Liga games this past week. Home draws against Girona and Athletic Bilbao, with an away defeat at Leganes sandwiched between the two all came unexpectedly, but Barcelona still maintain top spot in La Liga. There isn’t a better way for them to get back to their best, and back to winning ways with an impressive performance at Wembley on Wednesday night. The stadium is famous for Barcelona, having won two Champions League trophies here, once in 1992 and more recently in 2011.

Head to Head

The two sides have only met twice in their past, back in the UEFA European Cup Winners Cup way back in 1982, at the semi-final stage. Tottenham had drew the first leg 1-0, but Barcelona managed to win the tie overall as they beat Tottenham 1-0 at the return leg in the Camp Nou. Barcelona went onto the final, and won the competition that year.

Predictions and Betting Tips

Tottenham are at 12/5 to get the win, with a draw being at 14/5 and an away win the most likely, priced at EVENS. With Barcelona failing to win against mediocre Spanish opposition three times last week, you can’t help but back Tottenham who are impressive at home in the Champions League. Tottenham defeated Real Madrid 3-1 around this time last year, and for them to repeat a similar success, you can get odds of 25/1 of the same score line. On the contrary though, the one golden rule may be to never back against Barcelona considering the amount of talent at their disposal, so my honest prediction would be a narrow 2-1 victory for Barcelona at 8/1. Lionel Messi is at 10/11 to score at any time, and he is the most likely scorer on the pitch, with Harry Kane at 11/10 for the home side to score at any time. I am hoping for entertainment, so let’s hope there is many goals for the neutral to cheer. If you want that cheer to turn into money, then bet on there being more than 4.5 goals at 11/4.
