The Euro Soccer and the EPL (English Premier League) this week has some exciting match-ups, and one in particular is the Tottenham Hotspur F.C. (4th in EPL) playing the Leicester City F.C. (2nd in EPL) with the game being played at White Hart Lane Stadium on London, England on Wednesday the 13th of January 2016 with the kick-off schedule for 4:05 PM ET.
Yes these 2 teams are at it again after playing to a 2-2 tie in the 3rd round of the FA Cup and here they are again at White Hart lane on Wednesday afternoon. Both clubs are equal in the number of losses this season with 2 losses each. Now the fans wonder will this be another game that ends as a draw, or will 1 of these 2 teams finally get the win they have been seeking?
The fans of the Tottenham Hotspurs you know your team to date have a 9-9-2 record and your team should feel fortunate that they had a 3rd round replay against Leicester. Then the Hotspurs had a penalty shot in minute 89 as a result of a hand ball, and Kane scored the penalty goal to tie the score at 2-2.
The Hotspurs manager M. Pochettino had new starting team in that game due to injuries and they hope to be at full strength in their roster for starters in this re-match and hosting Leicester City on Wednesday afternoon. To date this season the Spurs defense has been very tight only allowing 7 goals this season and that ranks them a 3rd to date in the EPL. Even with a stingy defense, their offense had trouble scoring as in 5 of their 10 home games their record is with 5 wins 4 losses and 1 draw. Even with their offense struggling, the defense still kept the Spurs many times just scoring 1 goal would have earned them 3 points.
Their leading goal scorer is Kane who in all games to date as accumulated some 14 goals, and is seeking more playing at home in this game against Leicester City. In all games this season at home field Kane in the ultimate 7 home games scored some 7 goals or an average of 1 each of those home games.
The fans of Leicester City surely know their team’s record this season is with 12 wins 3 losses and 5 draws, and they did not have a very merry Christmas season since in their 3 games during that period the managed a total of 2 points, lost 1 and drew on 2 in a period of 8 days, and that dropped them to 2nd in the EPL rankings.
Not only was that stretch of game devastating with the lack of scoring in those three games a goal, they also are wondering if their leading scorer with 15, J. Hardy will play in this upcoming game since he confronted a injury to his groin and without Hardy the team is at a loss.
Yes they will miss Hardy playing against the Spurs but they still have R. Mahrez and S. Okazaki who each can score and be dangerous for opposing defenses. This season in the EPL Mahrez is the lead scorer with 13 goals of which he scored 6 goals in their 1st 3 games this season. The Foxes of Leicester to date in the EPL are the most difficult opponent who in their last 10 games to date have won 6 games and only lost 1 and on the road scored 21 goals to date.
The online wagering prediction in this game is that the Tottenham Spurs overtake Leicester City scoring 2 goals to 0 and Leicester losses their 4th consecutive game.
