Tottenham need a miracle in Portugal on Thursday night and we have free football betting tips.
When Eriksen netted from a delightful free kick at White Hart Lane on the 13th March, Tottenham should’ve marched on and took the attack to Benfica, however the Portuguese outfit had other things on their mind when Luisao scored two late on that will now mean Spurs need to overturn a two goal deficit when they face Benfica again, but this time at the Estadio de Luz.
Tottenham are faced with other problems when they travel to the capital of Portugal, an injury crisis in the Tottenham camp means Adebayor, who has been on good form for the North London side will miss the game along side playmaker, Paulinho.
The scale of the task also increases, as Benfica are on an impressive run that hasn’t seen the red shirts lose a game since November. Benfica are also seven points clear in their domestic Portugal league ahead of the likes of Porto and rivals, Sporting Lisbon. Confidence will also be brewing with a Portuguese flair, as Benfica won their last game 4-2 against the islanders, Nacional, whom are based in Madeira.
Tim Sherwood will have to rally his Spurs as they travel to Portugal after being defeated 1-0 against fierce rivals, Arsenal. Before that match up, a heavy defeat by Chelsea has also added to the reality of Everton catching up and over taking the white shirts.
With an inexperienced squad at the hands of Tim Sherwood, the chances of Benfica qualifying to the next round looks on the cards. However, Tottenham will show some fight and desire, and as seen in the last time these teams met, both teams managed score. Benfica to win and both teams to score is the top tip in this Europa League clash.
