Tottenham vs Barcelona
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
Derby match of the Wednesday’s action in the Champions League is going to be contested between Tottenham and Barcelona.
After being defeated three times in a row, the hosts managed to improve their form and tie three wins. Tottenham are sitting on the 4th spot in the Premier League and they are five points behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side has been playing very well in the front, however they need to be tighter in the back. Although they had an away lead away to Inter in the opening round of this competition, home side failed to a 2-1 defeat in the finish of the match. They need to start winning some points if they want to earn the place in the knockout stage.
Barcelona opened their Champions League campaign pretty convincingly after beating PSV in front of the home crowd. Leo Messi put an excellent display as he scored a hat-trick.
However, the visitors entered a bad streak of results and they’ve been searching for a win in the last three occasions. Luckily enough for them, Real Madrid haven’t managed to take advantage of their rival’s poor form and these two teams are still sitting on the top spot of the table. Barcelona should be looking to get back on winning track as soon as possible.
Tottenham vs Barcelona: Head-to-head
These two teams faced each other just once in their history and that clash took place earlier this summer. Barcelona celebrated after the penalty shootout in International Champions Cup. In the regular 90 minutes, the crowd was able to enjoy four goals.
Tottenham vs Barcelona: Prediction
Home side is enjoying a good momentum and they might be able to take advantage of Barcelona’s bac streak. It wouldn’t be surprising if we see a home victory in this one and Tottenham might take all three points from this clash.
Both sides are doing very well in the front and we are expecting an open clash. The nets shouldn’t stay still in this one as each team is capable of scoring at least once in the match.
