Werder Bremen v Tottenham Hotspur Preview
Spurs are coming off an aggregate win over Swiss side Young Boys while Werder Bremen knocked out Sampdoria to make it to the group stage.
Both teams have a decent chance at making it to the knockout stage but likely will be fighting for second with Inter Milan also in the group. The other team in the group is Twente Enschede, who won the Dutch Eredivisie in the 2009-10 season.
Tottenham know that playing on the road is always tough and Werder Bremen presents a tough callenge. The poor showing by Spurs against Young Boys should benefit them in this match. They know that a poor start will likely mean no points from the match. Werder Bremen, on the other hand, need to get result from all their home matches and will be disappointed with anything less than three points.
Bremen are favored in this match but the addition of Rafael Van Der Vaart and William Gallas have given a boost to Tottenham’s chances. A close match is expected but Bremen even odds for the win and Tottenham almost 3/1 for the win. The odds seem a bit too high for home side and Tottenham should surprise with a draw.
