Tottenham vs Brentford
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 5 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs are one of the best teams in the EPL, and have been so for the past several years. They are determined to lift the title at the end of this season, especially after so many years of near-misses.
Moreover, the arrival of Jose Mourinho as the gaffer, and the fiery form of Harry Kane, as well as Son Heung-Min, have led fans to have wild expectations.
This Tuesday, they are on the cusp of getting to the final hurdle of a significant trophy. In the semi-final of the EFL Cup, they are pitted against a team from the Championship, and this alone should pick out Jose’s men as the favorites.
Going on, the game takes place at their home, and this is a single-game knockout fixture as well.
In addition, the Spurs also have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years too.
By the looks of things, count on Tottenham to emerge victorious this game week.
Tottenham vs Brentford: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-0 win for Mourinho’s men.
- They have scored two or more goals in all but one fixture in the past three decades.
- They have kept clean sheets in the previous two match-ups.
- Spurs have a 100% unbeaten record in the last thirty years, and a 100% winning record in the period, barring a draw.
Tottenham vs Brentford Prediction
Jose’s men registered a 1-3 win on the road in the previous round, against Stoke. In the meantime, the Bees recorded a 1-0 win at home against Newcastle.
Going on, Mourinho’s men are one of the title-contenders in arguably the most competitive league in the world, while their opposite number are from the lower division.
On top of that, Spurs have a 100% winning record in h2h meetings since 1990 barring a single draw, and have scored two or more goals in all but one such game as well.
In addition, they are desperate to deliver any title for their eager fans, and a win this Tuesday will get them into the final of the Carabao Cup.
Under no circumstance will the Portuguese gaffer let go of that opportunity. We can surely count on Tottenham to post the win this Tuesday.
And with this being a knockout fixture in a major tournament, especially with some of the best attackers in the world lining up for the hosts, expect a high-scoring affair, particularly towards the end.
