Our Prediction:

Tottenham will win

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

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.

This season has started in a good fashion for them. If we look at the tightness of the matches, we can see that this is a pretty good result. He will have to be on top of his game if they want to make a potential surprise. Their best scorer is Norris with 4 goals. They are healthy at the moment, no injuries or suspensions are listed so far and everybody will be ready to play and make a potential surprise. They can score, but their defense isnt a tight one, so they have conceded 11 goals already. They have already scored 17 goals in the league, which is almost two per game.

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.

The previous occasion was an FA Cup tie four seasons ago when most of Tottenhams big stars featured but Eric Dier was the only current player to get on the scoresheet in a 4-1 triumph. This will be a huge occasion for the Essex club, who are unlucky not to have got a financial windfall from live TV coverage when they face Spurs for only the second time.

Colchester vs Tottenham Head to head (h2h)

Its been a tough week for Spurs, as they disappointed at home and in Europe. However, their Carabao Cup trip to Colchester appears to be the perfect chance for them to turn things around. This clash could provide a confidence boost for Spurs, especially with tricky clashes with Southampton and Bayern Munich on the horizon. Spurs have hit a tricky patch of form with just one win in six matches.

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. 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. 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.

This game will be played in the perfect moment for them to score a much-needed win. Foyth, Lo Celso, and Sessegnon will not play in this game, due to some short-term injuries. Besides them, they have enough firepower to get past this round and score an easy win. They are known to be an inconsistent team so they have a changeable form. Tottenham is trying their best to make better results lately. They have a few injuries.

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.
