Middlesbrough vs Tottenham prediction Tottenham Hotspur will be eyeing their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals when they travel to the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday night to take on Middlesbrough.
Spurs beat Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 at home in the previous round of the competition, while Middlesbrough beat Manchester United at Old Trafford, winning on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
Middlesbrough were second best for the lengthy stage of their clash with Man United in the fourth round of the competition, and it would be fair to say their leveling from Matt Crooks was controversial, with Duncan Watmore appearing to tackle the ball before his team-mate converted from close range.
However, Crooks' goal was spared, and Boro, who reached the 1997 FA Cup final before losing to Chelsea, won 8-7 on penalties at Old Trafford to progress to the fifth round, and they will now look to claim another Premier League scalp in the form of Tottenham. .
Chris Wilder's side go into Tuesday's clash having lost 3-2 at Barnsley in the Championship on Saturday, which leaves them eighth in the table, two points off the top six.
Boro have actually won their last seven games in front of their own supporters so should be full of confidence ahead of Tuesday's clash, especially as they haven't lost an FA Cup home game since January 2018, including a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at home. the third round of the 2019-20 competition before losing in the replay.
Middlesbrough have not beaten Spurs in any competition since a 2-1 success in the Premier League in August 2008, which proved to be their first win over the North London club since May 2005.
Following their 3-2 win away to Manchester City on 19 February, Tottenham were brought back to earth at Burnley last week, suffering a 1-0 loss to the Clarets at Turf Moor.
However, Antonio Conte's side returned to winning ways on Saturday afternoon, beating Leeds United 4-0 in the Premier League, with the result leaving them seventh in the table, five points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with two games. remaining.
Conte will be desperate to lead his side into the quarter-finals of the competition on Tuesday night, but Middlesbrough have shown this season that they are capable of beating top-flight opponents.
Middlesbrough will return without Marc Bola's serve due to a knee injury, but Crooks is back from suspension and should return to the first team.
It's possible Wilder could have picked the same XI that started the previous round against Man United, with Folarin Balogun joining Andraz Sporar in the final third.
As a result, Watmore, who played a key role in Boro's equaliser at Old Trafford, is likely to come off the bench, while the return of Crooks is likely to see James Lea Siliki come off the side.
As for Tottenham, Rodrigo Bentancur will be sidelined with an ankle problem, while Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga are also doubts due to recent injury issues.
Lucas Moura is also in contention for the FA Cup, having missed Saturday's game against Leeds due to an injury he picked up in training.
Conte could refresh his full-backs for this clash, with Emerson Royal and Sergio Reguilon potentially in the squad, while Davinson Sanchez could replace Cristian Romero at the back, but Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski should start. three more.(red)
