Tip Tottenham - Wolfsberger
Tottenham Hotspur are going through a tough run. The North London side will be seeking solace in their Europa League clash against visiting Austrian side Wolfsberger on Wednesday. In the first leg of this Round of 32 tie, Tottenham won 4-1 away in what is their only win in the last four matches. They’ve lost all the other three, the latest being a 2-1 reverse at the hands of West Ham United. Spurs have lost six of their last eight matches – the only wins in the process have been over Wolfsberger and West Bromwich Albion. Somehow, Spurs have struggled defensively in recent matches, a major reason for their slump. In the last 11 matches, they have one clean sheet – against West Brom, one of the poorest teams in the Premier League. As a result, their matches have been high scoring, seven of the last 10 producing over 2.5 goals. They will be glad to be back home for this game, after playing four straight away matches, and losing the last three. It has been kinder for Spurs in the Europa League; they head here unbeaten in the last five and with just one loss in the last seven matches. They’ve scored two or more goals in the last five matches in this competition and have four straight wins, with three clean sheets. In the last five Europa League games at home, Tottenham have scored 18 goals and conceded four.
Wolfsberger recovered from their midweek loss with a 2-1 away win at Sturm Graz. They need to score at least four times and keep a clean sheet to be able to advance in this clash. It is a very tough task for the Austrians who haven’t managed more than two goals in their last nine matches. They’ve however scored in five of their last six matches while four of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals. Even in the four away wins in five matches, the visitors have not managed to score more than two goals and keep a clean sheet. They actually have just two clean sheets in their last 10 Europa League matches and have three losses in the last five in the competition. In the last eight away matches in Europa League, Wolfsberger have managed four wins, and twice in the four, they scored four times.

Spurs’ main issue will be addressing their defensive failings but they will definitely find openings against a side seeking to score four goals after the heavy first leg loss. Wolfsberger have scored in five of their last six matches and should be able to get at least a goal here, looking at Spurs’ defensive returns. Over 2.5 goals will do here, with both sides scoring.
