In a week of attractive fixtures in the International Champions Cup, Tuesday brings a clash between Spurs and Roma, as the Premier League meets Serie A in New Jersey.
The London club battled from a losing position in their most recent match to overcome PSG in what was a highly entertaining encounter that finished 4-2.
Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, who scored a wonder goal in that game, will be looking to build on his fine form with Spurs last campaign with more encouraging pre-season performances.
Both sides finished as runners-up in their respective leagues last season and both finished having scored more goals than the actual champions.

Spurs were the only team that put in a challenge against eventual title winners Chelsea and Roma were hot on the tails of the Old Lady, ultimately finishing four points behind them.
Although Mauricio Pochettino fielded some young blood against PSG last time out, he will still want to see how his team fares in the ICC against some of Europe’s best, with domestic rivals Manchester City still to come.
Interestingly, PSG were also the last team that Roma faced in the competition but, unlike Spurs, they failed to beat them during normal time and came undone when the match went to penalties.
With this winning momentum on their side, I believe Spurs possess the confidence as well as the quality across the pitch to take the points against Roma.
I’m backing Tottenham for the win at 2.33 with Sportsbet.io
