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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:

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.
