Tottenham Hotspur’s 5-0 first-leg win over Dinamo Tbilisi puts them in a commanding position to qualify for the Europa League group stage and, while changes to the side are expected ahead of this weekend’s north London derby against Arsenal, the quality of players coming in points to another goal-fest.
Spurs’ show of dominance in Georgia sees them priced up at just 19/100 to win again, with the away side available at 19/2 and the draw at 5/1.
However, with so many big-money signings arriving at the club during the summer, games like this give players on the fringes of the team a chance to impress and against a poor Dinamo side the 21/20 on more than 3.5 goals being scored in the match looks a great bet.
January buy Lewis Holtby, who scored four goals and laid on seven assists in the Bundesliga for Schalke before his move to England, is pushing for a start after recovering from an injury picked up on Germany Under-21 duty.
Jermain Defoe, who scored a hat-trick against NK Maribor in the group stage last year, could also feature in place of Roberto Soldado up front.
New England call-up Andros Townsend may keep his place on the wing following his stand-out performance in Tbilisi, which yielded a goal and two assists.
Andre Villas-Boas could hardly be accused of taking the Europa League lightly, having won the competition three seasons ago during his short, successful spell managing Porto.
The Primeira Liga giants were relentless over two legs in that campaign, battering Belgian side Genk 7-2 on aggregate in the qualifiers.
They also racked up five goals in three European games in a row at home and away to Spartak Moscow and against Villarreal in the Estadio do Dragao.
Villas-Boas played close to a full strength 11 in all the knockout stage matches last season as Tottenham went unbeaten at home in Europe, winning four of their six games and scoring 13 goals in the process.
