Tottenham vs APOEL predictions-There were sharp intakes of breath all around North London when this Champions League group was drawn earlier in the season. Being alongside European heavyweights such as Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund meant that Tottenham looked to be in for a rough ride, but they’ve absolutely excelled in their five group games.
They started with an entertaining 3-1 win over Dortmund at Wembley, a result which many thought could prove crucial in their inevitable battle for second place. That battle turned out to be anything but inevitable though, as they took four points from two games against back to back Champions League winners Real Madrid to put them on course for the top spot. That top spot standing is sealed now, and they can look forward to the knockout stages in 2018.
Spurs’ form has declined recently though. Their only win in the last five games was their victory away to Dortmund, with defeats to Arsenal and Leicester and dismal draws against West Brom and Watford overshadowing that performance. Still, in the Champions League they have won four and drawn one, including their 3-0 win away to APOEL.

APOEL aren’t going to be lying down though. They have managed to take two points off Borussia Dortmund and only lag behind the German giants on goal difference. Considering they were largely deemed as the group whipping boys, APOEL have done amazingly well to still have a chance of progressing to the Europa League.
Undoubtedly, APOEL are still huge underdogs for this game, and rightly so. Tottenham won’t be taking this game lightly as they look to restore confidence in the squad, and the Cypriots were well beaten in both of their matches against Real Madrid and their hosting of Spurs in September.
Away from home they actually seem to perform a bit better though. They were battered 6-0 at home to Real Madrid but only lost 3-0 away, and they obviously got a draw away to Dortmund as well. Considering Spurs’ goalscoring prowess has declined recently, with none of the last six games seeing four or more goals, we’re liking the look of a Tottenham Win and Under 3.5 Goals alongside a 2-0 correct score Tottenham vs APOEL predictions.
