Let’s face it, going into the second leg of their Champions League quarter final with Real Madrid at White Hart Lane, Tottenham face an impossible task. Spurs are 50/1 to overturn their 4-0 defeat and progress against Jose Mourinho’s men and if you ask me, even those odds are a little short.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth says “Experience tells us we shouldn’t write off Spurs in the Champions League, but even Harry Redknapp could have bitten off more than he can chew this time and he’s 50/1 to see off Mourinho.” However, Tottenham aren’t alone in needing a Lazarus-like comeback.
Inter Milan have a similarly difficult task, having a first leg 5-2 defeat to overturn, and just to make it that bit harder they have to travel to Schalke. But bet365 have “already been forced to cut Inter from 25/1 into 20/1 and of the two, punters think that Leonardo’s side are the more likely to pull off of a Lazarus-like comeback.”

Both are pretty impossible if you ask me, but Tottenham still have pride to play for at White Hart Lane and following their victory against Inter Milan in the group stages, they have another opportunity to get one over Inter, in one sense or another. Spurs are 11/8 to score more goals than Inter on Wednesday night and it would give Harry Redknapp’s men plenty of confidence for the rest of the Premier League season if they can go out of the Champions League with a bang!
How many goals can Spurs net against Madrid? Tottenham are 3/1 to fire a blank, 7/4 to score once, 3/1 to find the back of the net twice or three times and 9/2 to score 4 goals.
