Spurs to Win

Oftentimes when you factor in the mental block of one side, you totally focus on them and forget the context of everything. What you do need to remember is both opposition and the style in which they’re suited.

Spurs being away from home will have the price inflated but actually, they’re far more likely to control a game in the manner in which Conte will want them to.

It sounds counter-intuitive given they’ve won their three home games but that will revert to the mean in the end.

But teams who struggle to keep the ball, on a big pitch, against this front three, are meat and drink for Spurs.

Under 2.5 Goals

I say this because I don’t foresee a situation where Sporting can net. Spurs are building slowly from the back and the extra focus on not giving the ball away is directly related to Son’s underwhelming showing.

That is consistent now and a part of that identity. There won’t be consistent bombardment in attacking areas until the opportunity is borderline risk-free.

Under 0.5 First Half Goals

Spurs in Europe. Caution first, results eventually. Conte likes to figure it out as a game develops and he makes changes as they see the opposition’s attacking patterns.

What that means is that spectators are underwhelmed by their showing because they’re not blitzing lesser opposition away in the opening 15 minutes of a game.

Richarlison to Score or Assist

He’s due a run of form and we saw it briefly in the opening game against Marseille. Things haven’t gone exactly according to plan for him but that’s largely due to him playing in a side where he doesn’t get the ball and dribble a whole pile. He’s evolving now and you saw the goals come.

It would be folly to discount a player who’s going to be central to their best moments in transition in Europe, as Kane plays minutes here or there.
