Read the match preview for Tottenham vs Twente below and get the latest odds and betting tips for the match.

Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Redknapp’s London side impressed last season in the Premier League finishing fourth and claiming a spot in the Champions League. This year the results have been more disappointing with only 8 points in six fixtures and a position in seventh place. In their last match they suffered defeat to league bottom West Ham, which was their second this season.

Tottenham qualified for the Champions League for the first time this year and started off with tough away game against Werder Bremen. Surprising they took an impressive 2-0 lead, but then was unable to defend this margin against the German side and had to settle for a good away draw.

Hotspurs now have chance to follow up on the good result by beating Twente at White Hart Lane, which normally is somewhat of a fortress for visiting sides. In addition their squad is without significant injuries, as only Jermaine Defoe is expected to miss the game.

FC Twente

Manager Steve McClaren secured Twente the Dutch title last season, but has now been replaced by Michel Preud’homme during the summer. However the new manager has not had an impact on the results and Twente have had a fantastic start to the new season as well. They are undefeated so far and managed a 2-2 draw against Ajax Amsterdam in their recent game.

Like their opponent tonight Twente is participating for the first time in the Champions League, which was not apparent in their first match. Michel Preud’homme’s men had the pleasure of current champions Inter Milan, but played the Italians unimpressively and secured a deserved draw.

Betting Tip and Prediction

Tottenham played a horrible game against West Ham Saturday, but must be confident after their result away against Werder Bremen. On the other hand Twente can be confident as well after their performance in the first round. We expect a very tight game tonight, which is tough to call. A likely result could be a draw, but we believe Tottenham will grab the three points by a small margin and our prediction will be 2-1 for Tottenham.
