Colchester vs Tottenham
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 24 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Colchester Community Stadium (Colchester).
Colchester won the battle of nerves in the previous round and edged it past Premier League side Crystal Palace after the final scores at the end of regulation time were tied at 0-0. Although the latter clash was too close to call, the matchup this week is bound to be anything but.
The hosts are currently tenth in the fourth tier of English football and will be welcoming the runners up of the 2019 Champions League on the back of a two-match winning streak. On the other hand, Tottenham tasted defeat for the second time in the new season after Leicester mustered a comeback from being a goal down to ultimately posting a 2-1 scorecard in their favor.
However, Colchester can rule out any hopes of getting the better of visitors in this one, as Spurs are by means an easy side to take down, even when they are on the road.
Colchester vs Tottenham Head to head (h2h)
Disregarding a club-friendly in 2013, their only previous encounter was a 4-1 victory for Tottenham in the FA Cup.
Colchester vs Tottenham Prediction
The home team are unbeaten in their last three games here. That alone, however, is not going to cut it against a side that is as competitive and dominant as Tottenham.
Furthermore, despite squaring up against the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal, the away side been at the losing end just once in their last four outings in all competitions.
Taking into account that the hosts also managed not more than a stalemate against Crystal Palace in the previous round of this competition, expect Tottenham to be on top at the break without breaking much of a sweat and to come away with the win at the last blast of the whistle.
Additionally, the visitors have scored two goals or more in three of their last four trips on the road. Considering that their only previous head to head meeting here also featured a total of five goals on the charts, count on Spurs to rack up the goals tally without fail.
