Tottenham Hotspur supporters might have been a little worried at the start of the season, considering that Luka Modric was angling for a move away from White Hart Lane, not to mention the two Manchester clubs putting Spurs to the sword.
However, things have turned full circle for Harry Redknapp’s side and a second string team are also making good progress in the Europa League after collecting seven points from three matches.
Tottenham head to Russia this week for a tricky match against Rubin Kazan, with odds of 4/1 (William Hill – £25 free bets) available that the north London side return with all three points, something which will mean they are through to the last 32.
However, their opponents will be difficult customers in front of their own fans and there wasn’t much to separate the teams when Spurs won 1-0 a fortnight ago. Rubin are a best price 8/11 (Coral – £30 free betting) to claim victory and this price might shorten further as we get closer to kick-off.
Roman Pavlyuchenko is once again looking for a switch away from Tottenham considering he can’t get anywhere near the first team, although the Russian scored the only goal of the game two weeks ago and 10/1 looks a decent price about the striker.
