Tottenham vs Birmingham – The Lane to stage final day drama

| 20.05.2011

Birmingham fans will not be looking forward to their trip to London on Sunday as they prepare to watch their side fight for Premier League survival.

Tottenham Hotspur must win to secure European football next season and this makes Birmingham’ position more precarious, although expect plenty of twists and turns in a fixture which throws up plenty of late goals.

Total Goals

There are goals to be had in this game and the bad news for Birmingham fans is that they’ve never kept a clean sheet on the final day of a Premier League season.

The good news is Spurs have conceded more goals on the final day (35) than any other side and both teams to score looks a certainty at 8/15.

Incredibly, five of the last seven meetings between these two have produced a goal in second half stoppage time, and nine goals have been scored in the final 15 minutes of those seven matches.

All eyes will be on White Hart Lane as the final day of the Premier League season enters the closing minutes and bet on Birmingham coming from behind to win or draw at 11/2.

Match Odds

Birmingham have gone 60 games without scoring more than two goals in a match and the 2-2 result looks the best bet at 16/1.

Spurs have drawn all of their last three home games and with Birmingham desperate to take anything from the game, the draw looks the best bet at 3/1.

Tottenham are the 4/7 favourites to win with Birmingham available at 9/2, but with the radios glued to their ear and with fingernails bitten back to the knuckle, the Birmingham fans can expect at least a point in their bid for survival.

A £10 stake on Tottenham and Birmingham drawing 2-2 would return £170. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
