Swansea vs Tottenham: The FA Cup’s quarter-finals propose us some interesting matches
But the one that is expected to be closer and tighter is the encounter between Swansea and Tottenham.
Carlos Carvalhal’s ability to question the superiority of their opponents will once again be tested, and it’s very likely that we will find a strategy from the Portuguese manager trying to neutralize Tottenham’s offensive strength.
The Welsh side is coming off a streak of 3 unbeaten matches, after having been battered in Brighton.
It is due to their defensive strategy that Swansea has been conquering most of the points they have, which doesn’t mean that the team doesn’t have the ability to score goals, just like they’ve done on the 2-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup or on the 4-1 victory over West Ham.
On the past week, the goalless draw against Huddersfield, on a match where they practically haven’t had a shot on goal, could have marked a trend that can happen again on this match against Tottenham.
The Spurs have had a great disappointment on the season by being eliminated, at home, by Juventus, on the Champions League, in a match where their weaknesses were exposed upon one of the most experienced teams in Europe.
There is still a way to go, for a team like Tottenham until they are able to be involved on the fight for the great European titles.
There are now 2 objectives left for them, which is finishing in the top 4 of the Premier League and reaching the FA Cup’s final.
Swansea vs Tottenham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Overcoming Swansea, as we have seen, has been a tough task. On the domestic competitions, the Spurs are coming off 5 consecutive victories, including a 4-1 win over Bournemouth last week, which clearly gives them confidence going into this match.
This is a match for us to watch Tottenham forcing the approach to Swansea’s box, while the Swans try to resist the best possible way they can, feeding the dream of Carlos Carvalhal.
