Mauricio Pochettino is likely to field a weakened team for Thursday’s match against AEL Limassol, with a Tottenham reserve side still likely to prove too strong for the Cypriot side.
Tottenham began their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win at West Ham, with Spurs targeting a top four spot this term and it’s unlikely that they will afford too much respect to the Europa League.
Bet365 are among the firms offering a best price 4/9 about the London side claiming victory and the manager will want to make sure of a positive result to avoid wielding the big guns for next week’s second leg match.
AEL Limassol were runners-up in the Cypriot league last season, with the team winning fifteen of their eighteen matches at home last term, although the level of football is nowhere near the English Premier League.
Brad Friedel, Michael Dawson, Ben Davies, Lewis Holtby and Andros Townsend are all likely to feature, with Roberto Soldado likely to be employed in attack, while Harry Kane might also earn a start.
These reserve players will be looking to impress the manager and BetVictor’s 11/10 about Spurs leading at half-time and full-time looks like a price worth taking.
