Olympique Lyonnais vs Tottenham Free Betting Tip & Preview

Spurs aim to preserve first-leg lead at Stade de Gerland. Two Gareth Bale free kicks at White Hart Lane handed Andre Villas-Boas\’ side a slim advantage, but Les Gones have a valuable away goal courtesy of Samuel Umtiti\’s wonder strike.

Tip: Olympique Lyonnais 1 – 1 Tottenham

Lyon manager Remi Garde has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Les Gones’ second-leg clash with Tottenham, though Yoann Gourcuff (hamstring) remains sidelined.

Steed Malbranque was not in the squad for Lyon\’s 4-0 win over Bordeaux on Sunday, while his replacement, Clement Grenier, grabbed two goals and an assist which could see him start against Spurs.

Tottenham are without their top scorer in the Europa League Jermain Defoe (ankle), while Younes Kaboul (knee) is still several weeks away from returning to first-team duty.

With Tom Huddlestone (knee) a doubt for the match and Brazilian enforcer Sandro (also knee) out for the remainder of the season, Scott Parker and Mousa Dembele are likely to continue in midfield.

Andre Villas-Boas may rotate his squad with one eye on Monday night\’s Premier League clash with West Ham, so Steven Caulker and Kyle Naughton could slot back into the defence.

Spurs\’ Portuguese boss has opted to rotate his goalkeepers in Europe, which means Brad Friedel is likely to start and thus deny ex-Lyon shot-stopper Hugo Lloris a reunion with his former club.


LYON: Vercoutre, Reveillere, Bisevac, Lovren, Umtiti, Fofana, Gonalons, Lacazette, Grenier, Lopez, Gomis

TOTTENHAM: Friedel, Walker, Gallas, Caulker, Naughton, Dembele, Parker, Lennon, Dempsey, Bale, Adebayor

Prediction: Neither keeper was worked especially hard at White Hart Lane, but Lyon, fresh from striking four times against Bordeaux, are more attack-minded at home, while Tottenham have counter-attacked to good effect on their travels this year. Les Gones will have to work hard to penetrate Spurs\’ increasingly solid defensive shape, and risk being stung on the break if they over-commit. As ever, how Lyon deal with Gareth Bale could decide the match.

Tip: Olympique Lyonnais 1 – 1 Tottenham
