Harry Kane has already done plenty to ensure he goes down in Tottenham Hotspur folklore this season, leading the club’s scoring charts with 24 goals in all competitions and notching some vital strikes against the north Londoners’ closest rivals.
What happens over the course of the next two games could guarantee the Walthamstow lad legendary status for the rest of his life however, should he score the goals that put Spurs through to the next stage of the Europa League and beat Chelsea in the Capital One Cup final days later.
Starting in Florence, where Tottenham sit level with Fiorentina at one apiece following the first leg in north London, Kane will be expected to lead the Lilywhites’ line to get the critical away goal the side need to gain a foothold in the tie.
Although he started the first leg on the bench, Ladbrokes clearly expect the England U21 international to be in from the off in Italy, as they’ve boosted Kane’s odds to score the first goal from 6/1 to 8s.
The once often on-loan front man built his now exploded reputation in the Europa League earlier in the season, scoring five times in the competition as he found overtaking Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor in the pecking order a tough task.
Two of those strikes were the first goals of the game, while he managed a third deadlock-breaker in the competition’s playoff-round when playing at home to AEL Limassol.
When his Premier League record is taken into consideration, Kane’s chances of landing Ladbrokes customers a windfall at enhanced odds get better.
Of the 14 top-flight strikes he’s slotted home this season, four have been the first of the match. He has also found greater success on the road, scoring eight times away compared to six at White Hart Lane.
