Tottenham – Middlesbrough : Preview & Prediction
After the 1-1 of 5 January at Riverside Stadium, with Tottenham finding the same thanks to Lucas Moura after Middlesbrough with Ashley Fletcher had taken the lead, the replay is played at home of Josè Mourinho’s spurs of the FA Cup third round. Defeated at home in the last league round by league leaders Liverpool 0-1, Tottenham will try to extend their home unbeaten run in the 90 minutes against Middlesbrough in ten games (6 wins, 3 draws). Serious the absence of Kane in attack to which are also added those of Ndombele, Davies, Lloris, Sissko and Alderweireld. Jonathan Woodgate’s Middlesbrough is undefeated for 6 consecutive league and cup games, and in the final league round he bumped 2-2 at home against Derby County. Long list of injured players also in the “Boro” home: Shotton, Friend, Dijksteel, Randolph, Assombalonga and Ayala.
Tottenham have beaten Middlesbrough in 6 of their last 7 home games.
The Spurs have won their last 6 FA Cup home games with an average of 4.5 goals per game.
The Spurs are undefeated in the last 40 FA Cup home rounds against lower-level opponents (33 wins, 7 draws).
Middlesbrough has scored in the last 9 official games this season.
The 1 sign is the one that is the most popular but it is really of a very low altitude. Definitely more intriguing to focus on the goal as happened in the first leg. Boro haven’t scored at Tottenham since 2008 but the odds are worth more than doubling.
