Tottenham vs Newport – FA Cup: This Wednesday night, Tottenham hosts Newport at Wembley, on a match counting towards the 2nd leg of the FA Cup’s 16th finals.
Tottenham is currently in 5th place of the Premier League with 49 points conquered, thanks to a record of 14 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses. Their goal ratio counts with 51 goals scored and 24 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.9 goals per match.
Their record at Wembley has been very positive, with the team being unbeaten in that condition in the Premier League.
On the last 4 matches played by Pochettino’s team, they have only won 1 of them, so tomorrow they will have a good chance to get back on the winning track. On the previous round, the Spurs have eliminated Wimbledon with a 3-0 win.
Newport is on the 11th position of the 4th tier of English football with 46 points conquered, thanks to a record of 12 wins, 10 draws and 9 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Welsh side counts with 41 goals scored and 38 conceded, which therefore results on an average of 2.5 goals per match.
Their away record is similar to their home record, since they’ve gotten practically the same amount of points playing on both conditions.
The team’s moment of form isn’t good, since they haven’t recorded a single win on the last 4 matches they’ve played. On the previous rounds, Newport has eliminated Walsall, Cambridge Utd and Leeds.
Tottenham vs Newport – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Newport has put up a good fight on the first encounter that finished with a 1-1 draw. However, at Wembley, things will be different.
I should also highlight the fact that this Welsh side usually concedes more goals playing as visitors, with only 8 teams conceding more goals than Newport away from home in their league.
Tottenham presents very strong arguments on the attack, having inclusively scored 3 or more goals in 5 of their last 8 matches played at Wembley, so I believe that will happen again tonight.
