Tottenham – Newport
Tottenham Hotspur faces Newport County in a replay match from the 4th round of the English FA Cup. Here are our predictions football 1×2 for this clash at the Wembley Stadium in London.
These two teams are going to play again after they made a 1-1 draw at the Rodney Parade in Newport at the end of January. Tottenham were really close to leave the competition, losing with 0-1 until the 82th minute. Padraig Amond gave Newport County the lead, but Tottenham’s superstar Harry Kane saved Tottenham from a humilating defeat eight minutes before the end.
After Newport County missed their chance in the first leg, now they will have a really difficult task at the Wembley Stadium.
After nearly losing in the first leg, we shall expect to see Tottenham’s manager Mauricio Pochettino picking his best players for the replay. The FA Cup is an important competition and Pochettino can’t risk anything here. Tottenham’s ambition is to reach the final, so they will be really motivated to fix their mistake from the first game.
In the Premier League Spurs are currently 5th in the standings, but being on just one point behind the 4th Chelsea. Tottenham’s record in the league is 14 wins, 7 draws and 5 defeats.
