There is no doubt that the guests are much more experienced and have fantastic performers. However, we don't think that a Premier League team would prioritize the Conference League. Most likely, the Spurs will play openly and not try to keep the score, which gives the Portuguese a chance to score a home win. We believe that the hosts can avoid defeat.
Our second bet - Asian handicap (+1) to Pacos de Ferreira.
