Marine Up Against the Odds this Weekend

Last Match

Marine haven't played a competitive match since beating City of Liverpool 2-1 away on 26th December, a result which sees the club sitting 6th in the NPL – North West Division. Tottenham were at home to Leeds Utd last time out, cruising to a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Kane, Son and Alderweireld. That result pushed Spurs back into the top four ahead of Everton.

Form Guide

Marine head into Sunday's clash as the form favourites with four wins, one defeat and one draw from their last six matches in all competitions. Tottenham have secured two wins, two draws and suffered two defeats in their last si outings, but they have obviously been playing against much higher quality opponents than this weekend's hosts.

Head-to-Head Record

These two teams have never locked horns before and this is just the second time that Marine have reached the third round of the FA Cup. The last time Marine made it this far in the FA Cup they lost 3-1 to Crewe Alexandra back in 1992/93. Tottenham have won the FA Cup eight times in total, but haven't had their hands on the illustrious trophy since way back in 1990/91.

Team News

Gareth Bale, Matt Doherty and Giovani Lo Celso have been ruled out of this weekend's match for the visitors, while Steven Bergwijn is unlikely to be risked following a groin strain.

Result & Both Teams to Score: Tottenham & BTTS

Marine have only failed to score in one of their last six matches in all competitions and Spurs have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last six attempts. Both teams scored in Marine's last game, a 2-1 win at City of Liverpool, while both teams have scored in four of Tottenham's last six fixtures.

Total Goals Under/Over: Over 4.5 Goals

Tottenham have scored exactly 3-goals in two of their last three matches in league and cup, and those games were against much tougher opposition than Marine. Even if Spurs make a number of changes to their starting eleven as expected, the Premier League side will be expected to come through this game with relative ease. Spurs could easily score 4, 5 or even more goals on Sunday, and don't forget that we have backed Marine to get on the scoreboard as well. Over 4.5 goals will be expected in this tie and at 4/6, it's a bet worth taking.
