Tottenham are considered the obvious favorite of the match, but whether Lokomotiv is capable of the feat of September 17 – you will find the answer in the forecast. Is a sensation possible?
Lokomotiv has already managed to beat one rival in the Europa League – in the last round Bruno Akrapovic’s team passed the Montenegrin Iskra with some difficulty. Everything was decided by one goal of the “black-and-white” from the penalty spot at the end of the meeting, the opponent had no more energy left for a comeback.
Lokomotiv is not very successful in the Bulgarian championship yet – after five rounds it occupies the sixth place in the table, losing three points to the leader Ludogorets.
Tottenham was close to failure last season – Jose Mourinho’s team could not compete for a ticket to the Champions League. Moreover, Spurs made their way to the Europa League with great difficulty, finishing in sixth place in the table.
Tottenham was also unsuccessful in the new season – at home they lost 0: 1 to Everton and ended up in 14th place in the table. Newcomers Pierre Heybjerg and Matt Doherty managed to debut for the team.
In each of the last five home matches Lokomotiv conceded
Lokomotiv won only two wins in their last five home games
Tottenham have not lost in any of their last three away matches – win and two draws
Tottenham kicked off the season with a defeat to Everton, and the Spurs will have a tough ride at St Mary’s next Saturday to visit Southampton. Obviously, the rotation cannot be avoided and the roster will be far from the main one, but this hardly leaves even the slightest chance for the owners – there is a gap in the class between the teams and even taking into account the rotation, the “spurs” are able to get a major victory.
We believe the hosts have no chance. Forecast – Asian handicap (-2) at Tottenham . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 2.05
