Sheffield Utd vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
There is only one point seven matchdays before the end of the Premier League season between Sheffield United (9th) and Tottenham Hotspur (7th). The blades therefore have a great chance of moving past the Spurs with a home three.
In the run-up to the game between Sheffield United and Tottenham, however, the odds of the bookmakers speak against the home side, as the odds comparison on a betting basis reveals. After all, with the Lilywhites, last year’s Champions League finalist was guest at Bramall Lane with almost the best cast.
For Sheffield United against Tottenham, however, the forecast must take into account that the Londoners could only win three of the 15 away games in the Premier League. It is all the more difficult to recommend Tip 2 at Sheffield United against Tottenham.
Against this background, the tip “Both teams meet: Yes” seems to us to be more sustainable. After all, the first leg in London ended with a 1-1 draw. Further betting recommendations and analyzes are available in the Premier League betting tips section.
The traditional club Sheffield United, which was the English champion in 1898, played an all-round solid season. The blades won eleven of their 31 games and, with just one point behind the Spurs, can still hope for a direct entry into an international competition.
To do this, of course, you need a home win that is not considered particularly likely at Sheffield United against Tottenham according to bookmaker odds.
One reason for this is certainly the fact that Chris Wilder’s men “only” won seven of their 15 home games at Bramall Lane. Although this is very respectable for a newcomer, United only places twelfth in the home table.
In particular, the 17 home goals in 15 home games are not considered overly impressive. But probably the only 13 goals with which Sheffield is behind the two clubs from Manchester and Liverpool FC, the fourth best home defensive of the Premier League.
Defense is the showpiece of the blades. In 31 league games, the promoted team conceded just 31 goals. This also means England’s fourth best defensive in general.
The only thing missing from the front is Chris Wilder. Bournemouth new signing Lys Mousset is actually United’s most successful goal scorer with just five goals this season, which really gives a deep look. It is all the more difficult to overcome the recent losing streak of four competitive games without a win with only one goal scored by yourself.
It is still unclear how the 2019/20 season for Tottenham Hotspur should be evaluated in the end. But it is clear that with seven games remaining and nine points behind in fourth place, the renewed Champions League qualification will most likely be missed.
After four seasons in a row in the premier class, the grand finale was reached last summer, the Lilywhites have to bake smaller rolls again or not. The transfer market could be all the more hectic. After all, this time there are no arguments to persuade long-standing top performers like Harry Kane or Dele Alli to stay.
In addition, Pochettino’s successor José Mourinho didn’t really get the cart out of the dirt. Under the Portuguese, only twelve of the 28 competitive games were won.
It was all the more important to have a good restart, which can in principle be said. Four points from the two home games against Manchester United and West Ham cemented at least seventh place. However, the gap to the Wolves in sixth place is a striking seven.
At Sheffield United against Tottenham, a tip on London’s away win is considered likely, but the misery of the Lilywhites is primarily due to their weakness away. The Spurs won only three league games in foreign places.
Nevertheless, two factors encourage you. First, all the top performers of the club, which has been hit by so many injuries, are currently available. Secondly, the rest of the London program is quite pleasant. With Leicester City on the penultimate matchday, there is only one team from the current top six.
