Match Preview

A win, a loss and a draw in their first three matches left Tottenham’s position in Champions League Group D delicately balanced ahead of their fourth game, which hosts Eintracht Frankfurt.

Spurs remain favorites to win the group despite trailing Sporting Lisbon by two points, and two of their remaining fixtures are at home, starting with the second leg of last week’s 0-0 draw in Germany.

Both teams had a good chance of winning this game and racked up an expected 2.3 goals between them despite their stalemate.

Frankfurt followed that up with a disappointing 3-0 loss to bottom Bundesliga side VfL Bochum on Saturday.

Manager Oliver Glasner had rested some of his key players for this clash, but the boss was still frustrated with his side’s performance.

Last year’s Europa League winners struggled to stay consistent in the new campaign – they had beaten league leaders Union Berlin 2-0 before their loss to basement boys Bochum.

Their squad may not be deep enough to deal with the relentless nature of the balance between Champions League football and their Bundesliga endeavours.

Much has been made of Tottenham’s recent struggles, which featured a 3-1 loss to rivals Arsenal. However, Antonio Conte’s side remain just four points clear of the Premier League summit after claiming a 1-0 win over Brighton at the weekend.

Harry Kane scored his eighth league goal of the campaign in the win and looks set for this clash after hobbling with a minor ankle injury against the Seagulls.

Despite consternation over their form, Tottenham showed plenty at the start of the season to show that they remain on track and have been rock solid at home.

Spurs have won their five games in all competitions in their own backyard, scoring 15 goals in the process.

Their problems came on the road, where they won just two of their seven matches. They will therefore relish this return to north London after playing four of their last five away matches.

Conte’s men are expected to overcome a one-goal deficit on handicap given Frankfurt’s poor showing at the weekend and the fact that Spurs have been prodigious scorers at home.

Proponents of the correct score may also be eyeing a 3-1 victory for Tottenham, given that Spurs have conceded three of their five home wins.

Key stat

Tottenham have scored 15 goals in five home games this season.
