Tottenham vs Watford Prediction & Betting tips
Tottenham Hotspur and Watford close this round in the Premier League on Monday-evening. At Tottenham they will want to go for a third place. Watford, on the other hand, wants to end up in the left-hand row, but then three points have to be taken at Wembley.
Tottenham Hotspur seems to qualify for Champions League football. The lead over Chelsea was five points prior to this round and The Spurs are not allowed to give that away. The men of Mauricio Pochettino could even pass Liverpool on the rankings. The deficit on The Reds is three points and Tottenham also played a match less than Liverpool. The third or fourth place as the final ranking does not make much difference for The Spurs, because it is simply that they know how to qualify for the Champions League.
Last weekend, Tottenham did not play in the Premier League, but the semi-final of the FA Cup was on the program. Manchester United was the opponent of The Spurs and Tottenham failed to qualify for the final: 2-1. Deli Alli still took care of the opening goal on behalf of The Spurs, but Michel Vorm had to end up with two more goals and with that the cup adventure of Tottenham came to an end. This weekend Wembley is waiting for a home match against Watford and Tottenham lost the last two home games. That is very striking, because in the 42 home matches before, The Spurs also lost only twice. There seems to be a bit of fatigue lately at The Spurs and that is partly reflected in the results of Tottenham.
For Watford the season can actually go two ways: Watford continues to lose points and sinks further and further away in the rankings or The Hornets try to end up in the left row. Of course, they would like to have the latter at Watford, but the results must improve quickly. Watford has not won in the Premier League since March 3 and the last win already dates from the previous calendar year. With 38 points Watford does not even feel that bad in the Premier League if you compare it with last season, but under Javi Gracia the best results are not achieved.
After two losses in a row, Watford did not crash again in the Premier League last weekend. Crystal Palace came to visit The Hornets and the match ended as it started: 0-0. With four defeats and two draws in the last six games, the shape of Watford is poor and when visiting Tottenham there seems to be no result for The Hornets either. What’s more, Watford did not reach the goal in four of the last six games and it seems that they should look down at Watford rather than at the left-hand row. With 38 points, however, Watford seems to be safe and with enforcement the season of The Hornets has succeeded.
