Middlesbrough vs Tottenham in the FA Cup on Mar 1. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Middlesbrough vs Tottenham in the FA Cup on Mar 1. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Middlesbrough will be smelling blood inside the Riverside Stadium.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are battered, bruised and limping into this FA Cup tie off the back of a horrible February of defeats and will be wary in taking on one of the Championship’s in-form outfits.

Middlesbrough may have never won the FA Cup, but they have contested a final more recently than Spurs.

Their 1997 final defeat to Chelsea came six years after Tottenham’s last final – and FA Cup win – in 1991, with the Lilywhites racking up eight FA Cup titles over their history.

But that was then and this is now – Tuesday night under the floodlights is expected to be one of the ties of the round and we’re not expecting the hosts to roll over to Premier League opposition.

We’re on hand at the Riverside with our expert betting tips hoping to get us over the line in profit!

Middlesbrough vs Tottenham Draw in 90 minutes

Despite Tottenham’s burning desire to lift a trophy – it will be 5,119 days since an EFL Cup win by kick-off on Tuesday – we’re not certain it’s going to come easy.

Antonio Conte already looks a troubled man at the Tottenham helm and a tricky away day in Middlesbrough on a Tuesday night isn’t quite the tonic he needs.

Middlesbrough have the second-best home record in the Championship winning a whopping 11 out of 17 home games this campaign, losing just four.

They’re on a home winning streak of seven and Spurs have another thing coming if they think the hosts will roll over at the Riverside.

The draw is available at around 3/1 with bet 365, and with the best sports betting sites.

Middlesbrough Form, squad news, opinion

Sitting just outside the Championship playoff spots, the 2021-22 season has been a success for Middlesbrough so far.

Chris Wilder’s side are set for their highest finish in three seasons and have the momentum to push towards a spot in the top six.

Their FA Cup run has been a huge bonus on the side.

They’ve got the better of Mansfield Town and Manchester United (on penalties) so far and won’t fear the visit of Harry Kane and co.

In Matt Crooks, Boro have one of the form midfielders in the Championship, with the 28-year-old bagging five in his last seven.

Tottenham Form, squad news, opinion

A dramatic win away to Manchester City for Tottenham has been bookended by defeats to Chelsea, Southampton, Wolves and Burnley in the Premier League, forcing Conte to raise big questions of his squad.

The Italian is struggling for momentum in north London but might be grateful for a change of scenery in the FA Cup.

Spurs have had a couple of scares so far in the Cup, nudging past both Morecambe and Brighton 3-1 on home soil.

Brighter news for the Lilywhites is the form of their new signing Dejan Kulusevski.

The 21-year-old scored and assisted in a 3-2 away win to Manchester City and looks to be on the same page as Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min in attack.

History

Middlesbrough and Tottenham have a long history of head-to-head encounters, with their last meetings coming in the 2020 FA Cup.

A 1-1 draw at the Riverside was followed by a 2-1 Tottenham victory in the replay, meaning Tottenham have suffered just one defeat to the Teesiders in their last 13 meetings.

Middlesbrough’s one and only appearance in an FA Cup final came in a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea in 1997 – the same season they were relegated from the Premiership – whereas Tottenham have reached nine finals, winning an impressive eight.

About the Venue

The Riverside Stadium has been home to Middlesbrough since 1995 and has an official capacity of 34,742.

The stadium sits on the south bank of the River Tees, where the North Stand backs on to.

For sponsorship reasons the stadium has previous names of Cellnet Riverside Stadium, BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium and Captain James Cook Stadium.

Conclusion

Tottenham would be foolish to take the challenge of Middlesbrough lightly.

Their home form has been impressive all season and Boro look like a real force under the management of Chris Wilder.

It should be a close game on Teeside, with the draw providing great value in 90 minutes.
