Our Prediction:

Tottenham will win

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

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.

Going from 2-0 up to 2-1 down is a rare occurrence, but at least they can be safe from any VAR issues in this trip. They could also use this clash as an opportunity to turn around their failing defence. While the offside call against Son on Saturday was ludicrous, theres obviously an issue with Spurs, which has seen them ship four goals in four days to throw away two leads. Mauricio Pochettino must still be fuming over the way their clash with Leicester turned against them.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g.
