Reasons for Apoel Nicosia vs Tottenham Hotspurs
Tottenham had a lot of troubles against West Ham United this weekend, but eventually, the Spurs managed to win. They are now traveling to Cyprus to face another challenging task. The champions of this country APOEL Nicosia will host them in the second round of the Champions League Group H competition. After losing away from home against Real Madrid, they consider this as the first chance to grab the first points in this years edition.
Apoel Nicosia Preview
The Cypriot champion is not that good this season. To be totally honest, they are looking extremely bad in the recent two weeks. They played three games in which they haven’t won. Troubles started after the match with Real Madrid 0-3 and continued to the domestic campaign. APOEL also hasn’t scored during those 3 encounters, and that is the biggest problem for coach George Donis. Like in the previous seasons, this team prefers a low tempo and slow games, in which we can’t see more than 2 or 3 goals. When playing at home, APOEL often wins with one or two scores after which he closes, waiting for the counter-attack.
Tottenham Hotspur Preview
A very clumsy and reckless challenge by Serge Aurier could have cost the Spurs a victory against West Ham. The French international was sent off, in the moments when his team had two goals lead. The game against Hammers was the 6th in a row in which Tottenham hasn’t lost. With 4 wins and two draws, we might say that they could be satisfied, although they could do more.
Since the start of the season, the Spurs were victorious in all the matches away from home. In three games they score 8 goals keeping the clean sheets twice. Each time Kane and the assembly scored at least two goals, proving that they have the best possible counter-attack in England.
Harry Kane started splashing from all positions as soon as September started and the best striker in England is in an excellent shape since the international break with 6 goals.

Apple Nicosia vs Tottenham Hotspurs Prediction and Betting Tips
There is no doubt that Harry Kane and the boys are going to win this match. They are far superior in all aspects of the game, and above all, they like to play away from home.
Tottenham Hotspurs to win halftime/fulltime is our first suggestion.
For the second one, we are picking the guests to score in both halves. Each time when Tottenham won, this situation happened.
As we mentioned Kane is superb at the moment, and a longshot would be him to score the first goal in the match. Instead of this, Spurs to win with a handicap would be better.
