Real Madrid vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur are tipped to serve up an open contest when they clash at the Allianz Arena in the opening match of the 2019 Audi Cup.

Real Madrid CF Form & Team News


Real Madrid are making their second appearance at the Audi Cup having reached the final in the 2015 edition. The Spaniards lost 7-3 to city rivals Atletico Madrid in their previous match in the International Champions Cup. 

That defeat meant Real have failed to win any of their three matches in preseason and have produced over 2.5 goals in all their encounters. Zinedine Zidane’s men are valued at 2.15 for a win but giving the amount of goals produced in their recent matches, a bet on goals is advised.

Real Madrid have a formidable attacking line and the acquisition of Eden Hazard should add more spark. The Belgian is likely to feature for the Spaniards alongside fellow new signing Luca Jovic and Karim Benzema who was the team’s top scorer last season.

The English Premier League club are coming off a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in their previous match in the UEFA Champions League. Lucas Moura grabbed the consolation goal for Spurs

Mauricio Pochetinno's men are looking to build on last season’s showing and gain some momentum ahead of the new campaign. They have won one and lost one of their two matches in preseason and are set at odds of 3.00 for a win while a draw is priced at 3.75.

Lucas Moura was one of the standout players for Spurs last season and was particularly impressive towards the end of the campaign. The Brazilian forward is in contention to feature in attack alongside Erik Lamela and Harry Kane.
