Tottenham Hotspur is taking on Sheriff Tiraspol in a UEFA Europa League Group K match. Tottenham is the only team in the group to win a game, and they’ve won both of theirs. That has them sitting with a 4-point lead after only two games. Sheriff Tiraspol is sitting in second with two points off of two draws.
Sheriff has never played an English team before. There isn’t much to base any projections of this match off of. With the way Tottenham is playing in the English Premier League, one of the world’s toughest, this match looks like an easy six points, even if it is on the road.
In the 1999-2000 UEFA Cup, the Spurs took on a team that was once rivals of Sheriff, FC Zimbru Chisinau. They won at home 3-0 and earned a draw on the road. That was a long time ago and the Spurs have the edge in this match up.
