It really is one of those, ‘Once more into the breach’ scenarios for Spurs tonight. Lots of whispers of dramatic comebacks but scoring five against one of the greatest teams in the world seems a somewhat optimistic outcome.
Spurs might have a ropey collection of strikers but they are are team with goals in them in virtually every position on the park, perhaps more so than most. So they may give Real a run for their money on the night, even if they ultimately leave the competition.
I’m struggling to see this as a low scoring game if I’m honest. Real know that if rocking up at The Lane with a four goal advantage wasn’t pretty good, then another on the night would have to finish Tottenham off for good. Over 2.5 goals is 8/11 and difficult to question too severely.
My heart says that this ought to be a night of Spurs really getting amongst it and to that end I’m going for a 3-1 win on the night. Of course, it doesn’t matter when the Real Madrid goal comes, once it’s in – show’s over. 3-1 is 22/1 and I’m sorry but I can’t even find it in my old Lilywhite heart that we’ll score four past Los Blancos.
Gareth Bale to score 2 or more goals is 20/1, Pav to do the same, 14/1, but if you went for Lennon the price goes out to 40/1. Could this be his personal comeback if not one for the whole Club.
