Our Prediction:

Tottenham will win

Colchester – Tottenham Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 14:45

Colchester have no pressure on them here, but that doesnt exactly leave them playing with freedom. Meanwhile, Colchester are middling in the fourth tier, which has left them just shy of the playoffs. Theyve already struggled to score goals in the fourth tier, so will they prove to be out of their depth here? Theyve turned around a poor League Cup record to make it this far, but the hosts may be stretched a little too far against top-flight opponents.

Tottenham is clearly a favorite in this one, by looking at the fact, that they play in the Premier League or the top division of English football. So it is going to be a tough job to predict the exact result of this match. On the other side, Colchester is playing in League two or the fourth tier of English football. Premier Leaguer did not start this season as they would like to, but I have to consider the fact that they are playing against much better opponents. They are currently standing at the fourth position after 5 matches played. These two rivals only played twice before.

Tottenham were able to make the semis of this competition last season, while we are backing them to cruise into the fourth round this week. Tottenham have the basis of a strong back-line, but the visitors need to settle things down at the back. We know what Spurs can look like at their very best, while they shouldnt need to stretch themselves for a clash with League Two opposition.

It isnt the worst record, but they are unlikely to add to that against Spurs. Colchester have scored 11 times in 10 matches at League Two level this season. Theyve just managed to get through to the third round, but they are unlikely to cause a shock here. Before this term, the hosts had failed to win nine outings in this competition. With the hosts struggling for goals and given their poor Carabao Cup record, were backing Spurs to win to nil in this clash. They failed to score against Crystal Palace in the second round, while this is an even bigger test.

From the ones that have been chalked up, one that does stand out is Tottenham / Draw in the HT/FT Market. Theres few markets available on this match (at the time of writing) highlighted by the lack of First Goalscorer and anytime onion bagger market. Working on the assumption that Spurs will rotate fully and play two teams as they did on Tuesday, then the 22/1 on offer with Sportingbet is of interest.

Spurs are determined to make amends for an unlucky 2-1 loss to Leicester City and we are positive that they are going to fight tooth and nail against the League Two side. Colchester United did well to eliminate Crystal Palace on penalties in the previous round, but we do not believe that they are capable of claiming yet another major scalp in the competition. When the two teams met in the FA Cup three years ago Tottenham crushed Colchester United 4-1 and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
