Alongside with Napoli – Manchester City match, another central encounter of the upcoming Wednesday may be called a game between Tottenham and Real Madrid. Bookmakers have set the Spanish team as the clear favorites of the encounter, but the match between the opponents, which took place two weeks ago, clearly showed, that the Spurs are hardly weaker than the Royals at the moment.
Tottenham was without defeat for a long time, but the Spurs lost two latest matches. At first, to West Ham in the English League Cup, 2:3, although had an advantage during the course of the match, and after that, Tottenham lost to Manchester United at Old Trafford, 0:1. It is clearly seen, that Pochettino’s team is going through some gaming recession. The only question is how long will it last?
But Real also lost in the Spanish championship last weekend. The offenders of the strongest club team of the world was the Catalan Girona – the novice of Primera, which managed to defeat the Madridians with the score of 2:1. After that loss, the gap to the leading Barcelona has increased to eight points. Prior to the match against Girona, Real were stronger than Fuenlabrada in Copa del Rey and defeated Eibar, 3:0, in Primera. Real have gained seven points in the Champions League: the victories over Borussia Dortmund and APOEL and the draw with Tottenham at Santiago Bernabeu.
Tottenham are still learning to win at Wembley, but the Spurs have problems with results at the arena. But this doesn’t mean, that the Londoners will lose to Galacticos in the forthcoming match. The Lilywhites have learned to set themselves on big matches and take points in those.
Prediction for the match: Tottenham not to lose
