- Brentford have scored 13 goals in their last six games
- The visitors have seen both teams score in five of those six
- Tottenham have kept one clean sheet in six games
Mourinho’s Spurs to get a scare
The bookies clearly believe Tottenham will win this EFL Cup semi-final showdown on Tuesday night. The one-off nature of the game does give Brentford a little advantage, but will it drive the adventurous Championship side forward?
Jose Mourinho’s teams usually encourage their opposition to attack and we don’t think things will be any different here, but the visitors are a side to fear going forward. Brentford have won five of their last six games, scoring 13 times in that run.
The Bees have seen five of their last six finish with both teams scoring, while their run to the last four has seen them score eight times as they knocked out four Premier League sides.
Tottenham’s welcoming nature hasn’t exactly paid off for them of late, they’ve kept just one clean sheet in their last six games. While Spurs should dominate going forward with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min likely to feature, we’re backing goals at both ends in our predictions. Both teams to score is our pick, along with a 3-1 correct score pick.
