Tottenham Hotspur F.C. UEFA Champions League Odds

Soccer Betting Odds

The first English team to win a European competition may come as a surprise, and it could win you a pint at the pub. It wasn’t one of the big five clubs that most people think of when they think of the Premier League, but Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs won the UEFA Cup Winners Cup in 1963, the year after they made it all the way to the Champions League semifinals in their first appearance. They hammered Atletico Madrid 5-1 in Rotterdam to claim the trophy, and Spurs have been able to claim a couple more European titles since then.

Tottenham didn’t have to wait too long to win a European competition after that. Spurs won the Europa League on their initial foray into that tournament as well, beating A.C. Milan in the semifinals before knocking off domestic foe Wolverhampton for the crown. They nearly claimed a second Europa League title two years later, but they fell to Feyenoord in the final.

After losing in the finals, it took nearly a decade for Tottenham to qualify for European play once more. Spurs were able to claim another title though, winning the 1984 Europa League title by outlasting Anderlecht in penalty kicks. Unfortunately, a year later the Heysel Stadium disaster led to English clubs being banned from European play for the next five seasons.

Since then, Tottenham have had a tough time making their mark on Europe. The club has not made it past the quarterfinals of any European competition, and they have only regularly qualified for continental play in the last decade.

Domestically, Spurs have had a good amount of success. They have only been able to win two league titles, but they have snagged eight FA Cups, four League Cups, and seven FA Community Shields.

2018-19 Champions League -

Last season may not have ended in silverware, but it was a great year for Tottenham nonetheless. Spurs were able to finish in third place in the Premier League, making it the third straight year where they have been able to do so.

However, the real story was Tottenham’s performance in the Champions League. Spurs were drawn into a tough group that included Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, but they cruised to first place in the group with relative ease. They hammered minnows APOEL in both meetings, toppled Borussia Dortmund in each leg, and knocked off Real Madrid at home while drawing on the road.

Unfortunately, Tottenham was a little unlucky in the knockout round. Although they were constantly swarming and looked the better side for much of their two matches against Serie A champions Juventus, Spurs fell 4-3 on aggregate.

Tottenham’s brass has decided to run it back this year. Spurs have done less in the offseason than any other major club in Europe, being content to keep their core group of young players together. The club has successfully held off suitors for Harry Kane once more, and the continued development of Kieran Trippier, Son Heung-min, and Dele Alli makes Tottenham a legitimate contender to win the Champions League. The club also has one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Hugo Lloris, and he was superb as France’s starter throughout their run to World Cup glory. Keep an eye on Lucas Moura as well. Moura was the club’s big ticket acquisition in winter, and he has looked great in the preseason.
