Daily Dynamo Selections – Tottenham Hotspur v Benfica

Betting Tips, Dynamo Bet, Europa League | Article posted on March 11th, 2014

If the hopes of English clubs in the Champions League generally look pretty forlorn, then the Premier League can at least gain some solace from the Europa League, even if the EPL is down to one contender. Tottenham though are second favourites to win the competition, and UEFA’s second-tier European competition frequently lacks the lustre of the Champions League, Spurs at least have a genuinely attractive last sixteen tie to look forward to here.

Benfica have been the dominant team in this season’s Portugese League, and though their Champions League campaign wasn’t overly successful, they are a force to be reckoned with in the Europa League. By contrast, Tottenham are something of a club in crisis at the moment, with the North London club having been thoroughly beaten by Chelsea at the weekend, and manager Tim Sherwood’s future seemingly far from certain.

Spurs have particularly struggled to score goals this season, and it has been in their forward line that the club have really missed the departed Gareth Bale. Roberto Soldado has not scored the goals expected of him, while the recruitment of £30 million Erik Lamela has been pretty disastrous thus far.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham have the firepower to trouble a more than competent Benfica side who have the best defensive record in the Portugese league conceding only 13 goals. Thus, I feel on the balance of evidence, and with the second-leg to come, that this could be a cagey first-leg with neither side wanting to give too much away.

Selections: Safe Bet – Under 2.5 Goals (4/5 with SkyBet), Value Bet – Draw (12/5 with BetVictor)
