Tottenham Hotspur – Bayern Munich
Tottenham Hotspur hosts Bayern Munich at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a match from Group B of the UEFA Champions League. Who do you think is the favourite here? Let’s take a look at this clash in the English capital London on Tuesday.
Tottenham Hotspur are among the favourites to secure the first two places in the group, but the last season finalists were unable to start with a win in this group. In the first round of the group stage Mauricio Pochettino’s boys travelled to Greece to face Olympiakos at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki. Everything started very well for Tottenham, because after half an hour they already had two goals lead. Harry Kane opened the score for Spurs from a penalty kick, while Lucas Moura doubled the English team’s lead.
Going against the odds, the Greeks showed some spirt and managed to equalise. Daniel Podence scored one back, while the French veteran Mathieu Valbuena equalised from another penalty kick.
Refreshed with some new players and showing a new face this season, Bayern Munich will chase only one thing in the Champions League – the trophy. The Bavarians signed new faces for almost every one of the lines, so now they have a lot of potential to improve and get back on top.
Bayer Munich showed a glimpse of this potential in the first round of the group stage when they crushed the visiting Crvena Zvezda at the Allianz Arena. Kingsley Coman scored for the German side in the first half, while Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller finished the job.
If you don’t think that Bayern Munich are in a terrific form at the moment, just look at their statistics – they are unbeaten since the Super Cup game against Borussia Dortmund, winning five of their last six matches in all competitions.
Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich are the two big favourites for winning this group in the Champions League, so we believe that both of them would want to take advantage in this direct clash in London. Let’s see.
