Premier League Tottenham v Cardiff
Away from the consistency and quality football of the last season so far, the truth is that even though Tottenham have remained competitive enough to reach the 8th round of the Premier in 4th place, with 15 points, just four of the leadership shared by Manchester City and Liverpool and two of Chelsea in third place.
After defeats against Watford (1-2) and Liverpool (1-2), Tottenham responded with a 2-1 victory over Brighton, this time after a draw in Italy in their Champions League debut before Inter Milan, by … 1-2.
In the final round of the season, they once again won 2-0 away to Huddersfield Town, having already taken Watford away from the League Cup on penalties.
However, the bitter taste of the defeat reappeared last Wednesday, in the reception to Barcelona (2-4), for the second round of the group stage of the Champions.
Cardiff City has moved up this year to the top tier of English football and is far from being well adapted to the new reality.
In seven games, he scored only two points, taking 19th place in equal time with Huddersfield and Newcastle, with Fulham, Southampton and Brighton trio three points clear.
The only points added were won in the second and third games, Newcastle (0-0) and Huddersfield (0-0).
Cardiff lost the remaining five games, were already beaten by Chelsea (1-4) and Manchester City (0-5), having in the last round yielded again the three points at home, against Burnley (1-2 ).

Life is not easy for Cardiff in this championship start, but still securing a point in Tottenham’s loaned home is not bad at all, given the differences between the two teams.
I hope for a more expectant Welsh team, trying to play in the error of the opponent and to take advantage of exits for the counterattack, moment of the game where Tottenham proved vulnerable at the beginning of the season.
On the side of Pochettino’s team, there is no other purpose than victory, to maintain high pressure under the trio of the front and to continue in the fight for the first places of the table.
In this way, I expect a game with reasons of interest, between two teams to give everything to reach their objectives, albeit with different strategies.
