UEL: Spurs vs LASK

Last Sunday night, Tottenham led West Ham to 3 white goals after only 16 minutes of playing. Until the 81st minute, the score on the electronic board was still 3-0 for Spurs. Gareth Bale was also launched by Jose Mourinho in the 72nd minute to make his debut for a new team. The game was completely under Tottenham's control. But in just over 10 minutes of the match, the utopia happened when Spurs let West Ham score 3 goals and equalized 3-3. 

This is too unlucky to lose points for Tottenham. Because West Ham actually doesn't create any clear opportunities. Davinson Sanchez unfortunately burned his own net. And Manuel Lanzini scored a goal from a super-long shot, but if to comfortably repeat, this striker will not have scored. Remember that before, in a much more delicious situation, Bale had narrowly missed the vertical column. 

The bad luck has been chasing Spurs since the beginning of the season. Before the match against West Ham, they were also unlucky when they let Newcastle equalize 1-1 in the last minute of stoppage time, from a penalty that they did not deserve at all. Basically, in both losing points against West Ham, Newcastle, Tottenham have played well. And these are just unfortunate accidents of Mourinho teachers and students. 

Spurs are gradually bringing positive features in the new season. Mourinho is known as a pragmatic coach. But from the beginning of this season, Tottenham has been a bit more of an attacking team. The evidence is that in the last 3 matches, they hit the opponent's net in total ... 16 goals, a respectable performance. Rookies like Matt Doherty or Sergio Reguilon are also integrating well. Last week, Reguilon was the man to create the second goal for Harry Kane. Of course, it is impossible not to mention the highlight of the Harry Kane duo - Son Heung-min. This is the killer striker pair this season when constantly scoring and assisting each other to score in the Premier League. 

Tottenham need a melancholy win and tonight is a very good opportunity for them to do that. Mourinho will have many changes in the starting lineup. The Kane - Son pair will be rested, but it is more likely that Steven Bergwijn and Carlos Vinícius. The Brazilian striker was brought in as a backup for Kane in the midfield role. And tonight will be the opportunity for the striker born in 1995 to have his first main match in a new shirt. Bale is also likely to start, after having played the last 20 minutes against West Ham. Not Kane, Son, but basically Team B of Spurs still has a lot of quality names. 

LASK Linz is the representative of Austria. And of course they cannot match Tottenham in terms of class. Notably, this team also played very badly on away field when losing 5/12 times away from the nearest home. They can hardly stand on the first field Tottenham are looking for victory to release their anger because of the unfortunate results last weekend.
