Lyon v Tottenham Odds: Spurs can get the draw they need to qualify in France

There is all to play for in Lyon on Thursday evening as the French side welcome Tottenham to Stade de Gerland for the second leg of their crunch Europa League tie (ITV4, 6pm). Spurs hold all the aces going into the second match of this last-32 fixture after Gareth Bale's last gasp free kick gave them a 2-1 win in the first game at White Hart Lane last week.

Spurs have had a week off since that narrow victory and they are 1/2 odds on to finish the job and qualify for the last-sixteen, where the winner of the match between Inter Milan and FC Cluj will lie in wait. Lyon will hope to have their say in the tie on Thursday though and they are right in the mix after grabbing a crucial away goal in North London, with Bet Victor going 6/4 that they qualify.

Indeed, it is the French side who start favourites in the match betting for Thursday night as they are handed odds of 5/4 to win the upcoming fixture. Tottenham can be backed at 12/5 to record a win in France, although the draw looks like the pick of the odds at 5/2 and that would be enough to see Tottenham through to the last-sixteen.

Andre Villas-Boas isn't expected to make too many changes to his Tottenham team this week which means that Hugo Lloris won't get to play against his former club and Brad Friedel will continue to deputise. Villas-Boas will hope to see a bit more from Emmanuel Adebayor in this match though as he was anonymous at White Hart Lane last week and he will be relied upon to lead the line with Jermain Defoe still out injured.

Gareth Bale has more than made up for Defoe's absence and Adebayor's profligacy though as the Welshman has now scored seven goals in his last five appearances for club and country. Bale scored both goals in the first leg win over Lyon as he struck with stunning free kicks at the end of each half and he is a tempting 6/1 to score first and 2/1 to score anytime with Victor Chandler this week.

Spurs go into this match full of confidence following a run of form which has seen them lose just two of their last 19. That run has lifted them up to fourth in the Premier League table, just one point behind Chelsea in third, and they will be confident of progressing in Europe this week too, with Bet Victor offering a best price 7/1 for a 1-1 correct score.

Tottenham will fancy their chances of scoring against a Lyon side who have won just two of their last six matches, including defeats in three of their last four. The French outfit are currently second in Ligue 1, three points behind Paris Saint-Germain, following a 4-0 win at Bordeaux at the weekend and they are desperately trying to reverse a run of form that has seen them win just one of their last four on home soil.

They showed enough attacking prowess in the first leg to suggest they can score against Tottenham this week and Bafetimbi Gomis is 5/1 favourite to score first after notching 14 goals this season. However, Lyon might struggle to keep Tottenham out and the 13/20 for both teams to score could be worth a look for odds on backers.
