Tottenham vs Leverkusen by PatrickBateman
Tottenham are five games witout a win, following a stellar performance which saw them beat Manchester City. They are in kind of small crisis which began after Kane`s injury, and still looking to get out of it. This weekend they drew at home against Leicester, in a game in which they were a better team, and conceded from the only shot on goal. In BayArena two weeks ago however, they were weaker team and could`ve lost had it not been for out-of-this-world Lloris` save. They are still without Kane and Alderweireld, while Lamela is questionable due to being sick.
Visitors are in even worse form and coming into this game after a DFB Cup loss against third league side Lotte, and a turnaround win against out of sorts Wolfsburg, which saw them break a run of 4 games without a win. They are still without a win in Champions League, drawing all three matches. However this group is as even as it gets, and they have every chance of progressing. They will be witohut Bellarabi, Bender, Pohjanpalo, Yurchenko and maybe Kruse.
Tottenham will be looking to break their bad run and to put themselves in comanding position in their group, especially beacuse Champions League means so much to them, having even decided to play their games in Wembley instead of their home ground so they can have bigger support. Bayer Leverkusen is not at all a bad team and they even dictated the game last time these two met, but I think that they are very vulnerable, and I consider Tottenham to have better players who can decide a game by themselves. They are missing Kane for sure, not just his goalscoring abilities, but his presence all around the pitch where he drags oponents, lays down passes and even plays defence sometimes, but they have bunch of other players who can ruin anyone`s day anytime. And I think that is going to prevail tonight and Tottenham will win easy way or hard and break their run of 5 games without a win.
