Updated: October 1, 2014

Match Date: 02 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: White Hart Lane


A frustrated Besiktas travels to White Hart Lane in an attempt to snatch a win that will help them dominate the group.


But achieving such goal will not be easy for the visitors. Tottenham, the favorite of online bookies, is just as hungry as they are –they are willing to do everything to secure the points.


The contenders


Unable to maintain its strong start, winning the Europa League match against Besiktas , will allow Tottenham to mask its declining state. The aspired victory will somehow, give consolation to its legion of supporters who have been frustrated by Tottenham’s gradual fall in the Premier League table.


Tottenham made a strong start in the Europa League. Its first match ended in a scoreless stalemate that earned them a point. Considering the difficulty of its previous match, the result can be readily considered as a success. Nevertheless, this does not permit Tottenham to slack off since as everyone has noticed, Besiktas can be a surprised stunner at any given time.



Besiktas held long to its lead when it went against Asteras Tripolis. Unfortunately, it was their opponent, which had the last laugh after securing a late equalizer. Indeed, the result was a frustrating one, but Besiktas can readily use such opportunity to help them excel in their match against Tottenham.


Possible head turners

Tottenham must keep its tables on Gokhan Tore. The midfielder is readily capable of creating scoring opportunities and even nail a shot to pull them down.
