Partizan No Pushovers
Spurs & Partizan To Draw
Tottenham Hotspur make the long journey to face Partizan Belgrade and Matt Le Tissier has football betting tips for their opening Europa League Group C clash.
The hosts are in good form recently having won their last seven games in a row and Partizan are unbeaten at home for over a year. At 35, Marko Nikolic is a young coach and his squad is also on the youthful side, so expect a fearless display from this up and coming batch of players. Partizan were knocked out of the Champions League on away goals after two draws with Ludogorets, a side which almost nicked a point at Anfield on Tuesday night, so they may be able to go toe-to-toe with Tottenham.
Spurs will of course represent a step up in class to Partizan’s usual quality of opponent, but the Premier League side may not be at full strength if Mouricio Pochettino makes changes as expected. Tottenham have picked up just a single point from their last two league games, so don’t head to Serbia in the best of form.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “Spurs are the better side in my opinion, but I don’t think Partizan will be pushovers in their own back yard, so I fancy this one to finish level. The draw is 29/10 with Betvictor where Correct Score punters can also get best odds 7/1 on the game ending 1-1.”
Petar Skuletic misses out through suspension, so Ismael Fofana could start up front alongside Danko Lazovic who has scored five goals in his last six matches. Elsewhere Partizan should remain unchanged to the side which made it 7 successive wins against Cukaricki at the weekend.
As Adebayor, Rose, Dembele, Chadli and Kaboul did not travel, Pochettino looks set to ring the changes for this one. Roberto Soldado returned to training on Tuesday and stands a chance of being involved along with Jan Vertonghen, while new Spurs signings Fazio and Stambouli could start for the first time.
