Tottenham Hotspur Vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 March 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Tottenham have lost their last two matches and now face a must-win match against a Wolves side just two places and one point behind them in the race for European qualification. Wolves are in the better form, however, and their solid defensive record should give them confidence of taking at least a point.
Tottenham campaign lately seems to be in jeopardy. After losing Harry Kane and recently Son Heung Min till the rest of the season, their forward is in crisis. Mourinho’s men have been defeated for the last two games. They are still not moving from the sixth of the table. This weekend, Delle Alli and Co will be meeting their rival for the European competition spot next season, Wolverhampton. Both teams are separated by one point. No wonder that this clash will be a intense as well as the decisive one.
Tottenham vs Wolverhampton Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met, Tottenham had won 1-2 on the road.
- Four of the last five wins had gone to Spurs.
- Six of the last seven clashes had goals from both teams.
- Three of the prior five encounters at Tottenham’s home had four or more goals.
- Since 2003, barring a single game, every single h2h meeting for which the Spurs hosted, there were goals from both teams.
Tottenham vs Wolverhampton Prediction
Tottenham might have difficulty in sealing three points here as Raul Jimenez and Co have had their positive results recently, including in Europa League. If Mourinho could stun the visitor with his unusual tactics, the host’s hope for a win is alive. A narrow win seems quite possible for the Lilywhites.
