In this match preview, we bring you the betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these sides.
Tottenham vs Southampton Betting Tips
The first leg result was 1:1, meaning that the second game needs to be played as per the rules of the FA Cup. Despite the fact that Tottenham came in the first match as the favorites, the hosts were the dominant side. Although their domination wasn’t drastic, the Saints did have more goal attempts as well as a higher percentage of the ball possession.
But, this time, the game is played at the ground of the Spurs, where they have been pretty decent lately. If it weren’t for the defeat to Liverpool, they would have all wins at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2020. Their good home run stretches even further back, in the times when the team was led by Maurizio Pochettino.
What’s interesting is that Southampton have been pretty awesome when it comes to playing away from home. They also lost to Liverpool, which put an end to their victorious run on the road of five straight away wins.
This season, Southampton have shown that they can be a tricky opponent, especially in the last two months. For instance, they got hammered by Leicester in the first part of the season, but beat the Foxes a few weeks ago.
This team seems very dangerous when the attack is concerned, with Danny Ings being one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League. Speaking of attack, Tottenham have serious problems there. Or, they had serious problems?
Their best player Harry Kane got injured recently, but they signed Bergwijn over the January transfer period. Although his primary role isn’t the one of a central forward, he definitely can play there if needed. In the game with Man City played on Sunday, he was employed on the side, although he moved inwards on many occasions. One of those occasions was in 63’ when he scored the goal that gave Tottenham the lead.
Son, who is another forward playing in a similar role as Bergwijn, was the man who scored the second and final goal of that match. The win over one of the richest clubs in the world has certainly given the Spurs a lot of confidence, which they can put to use in the FA Cup game.

They’ve been playing really well in the last couple of weeks, winning some matches which they really weren’t expected to win. Still, this hasn’t helped them move much up in the Premier League table. They’re still in the bottom half and there’s still a danger that they might get relegated at the end of the season. This is why they might not be 100% focused on the FA Cup.
