Tottenham Hotspur vs Marseille Predictions
- In all six of their matches this season, both Marseille and Tottenham have scored.
- In four of their six matches, Tottenham conceded.
- Harry Kane scored in four of five Spurs games.
After a unbeaten start, hosts are on a high
Tottenham Hotspur returns to the Champions League after the 2019/20 season, and Antonio Conte’s team arrive on the continent with confidence following an impressive start to the campaign.
Their well-deserved win over Fulham on Saturday made it four wins and one draw from six games so far. Harry Kane’s goal took him to five goals for this season, an achievement only Erling Haaland or Ivan Toney could match.
Marseille flying high
Marseille has a similar record this season with five wins and one loss in six Ligue 1 matches.
Only PSG in France was better than Les Olympiens last season. They return to Champions League as a far superior side than the one that won the last five of their six group matches in 2020/21. This could be a serious threat for Spurs’ backline.
Expected goals at both ends in north London
Igor Tudor’s team is level on points with PSG, and have scored 13 goals in six matches. Both teams can score with Tottenham conceding in four out of six matches, but scoring in all their fixtures so far. This makes it appealing to back both sides.
Six consecutive wins at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have convinced me that the hosts will prevail. Saturday’s 2-1 win was a good value and I expect them to do so again.
Harry Kane is a worthy anytime goal scorer pick. The England captain has scored in four out of five of his last five appearances, and he also scored six goals in five Champions League appearances.
