England: Premier League
Match start: 18:00 (GMT+2)
The first victory of the EPL vice-champion Tottenham during the group stage of the Champions League over Borussia Dortmund (3:1) was rather bright and confident. The most remarkable were two scored goals in the first half by Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.
For two times the goals were scored from one and the same point after clear runs of Korean winger and English forward on the left wing.
Tottenham (the head coach Mauricio Pochettino)
Simultaneously with the meeting at Wembley the defending champion of Europe Real Madrid at its Estadio Santiago Bernabéu has devastated APOEL from Cyprus (3:0). So, the teams of Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane became the leaders of the 8th group H. But they will meet each other only in the third round (on the 17th of October).
Now the 5th round of the national championship begins in which the only Wales EPL teams will become the rival of Tottenham during the home match.
Swansea (the head coach Paul Clement)
Contrary to the club from London the beginning of the new season can’t be considered to be successful for its nearest rival. As in the 4th last round the Swans from Liberty Stadium had earned only 4 points and are now taking the 15th line.
But if the first home defeat of Swansea to the team of José Mourinho was rather predictable (0:4) a week ago having hosted Newcastle the hosts of Liberty Stadium have spent 3/4 of the game time near the gates of the rival but, as a result, on the 76th minute an accidental goal was scored (0:1).
The club from Wales is playing in the Premier League its 7th season (since August 2011). During this time 6 calendar meetings of the current opponents in London had finished with 6 wins of Tottenham with the total score - 15:4 (3:1, 1:0, 1:0, 3:2, 2:1 and the last time - 5:0). Nobody doubts in successful outcome of the match for the hosts of Wembley. Now the teams of Mauricio Pochettino and Paul Clement demonstrate very smart game.
Tottenham– 1.20, draw – 6.00, Swansea– 15.00;
tip: Both teams to score NO - odds 1.75 Betfair
