Sheffield United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur – FA Cup Betting Review


Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 market first where the host Sheffield United won @ 4.25.

Turning onto the Asian handicap betting where despite a reasonable start, Spurs let down the fans and backers massively. Sheffield United got a full win +0.75 @ 1.82.

Looking finally at the Under/Over goals market which was set at 2.75. It was a horribly dull game with Sheffield United very defensive and Spurs lacking any spark. The Under was an easy winner @ 1.85.


Match Summary

A lack lustre and unmotivated looking Tottenham fell flat on their face in a drab showing on Wednesday evening. The EPL club dropped out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 loss to championship club Sheffield United, who showed more desire and hunger to progress.

The home side were able to take advantage of a heavily rotated Spurs XI, scoring in the final 10 minutes to knock the 4th placed EPL side out and progress to the quarter finals.

Tottenham did bring in important players like Kane And Kulusevski in order to try and win the game, but the tone was already set for an extremely disappointing performance. Fair scores 1-0 and 0-0.

It is fair to say that Sheffield United upset the odds in order to progress from this tie, but it was a particularly pleasing and surprising result considering they also rested first teamers.

Spurs began well enough in a drab match, and the visitors went close to taking the lead as Richarlison fired a shot narrowly over the bar early on.

While the host sat back, Tottenham continued to apply pressure as they searched for the first goal. Lucas Moura’s chipped cross clipped the top of the bar before being cleared to safety.

The Blades were focussed on defending but had a good chance when Ismaila Coulibaly found himself through on goal, but the attacker was unable to find the target and pulled the shot wide.

Spurs pushed for the opener after the interval and went close from a corner, but Ivan Perišić’s header was held by Wes Foderingham.

The away team bright on Kane soon after the our mark as they became more lack lustre and less likely to score as the game grew on.

It was the Blades which found the winner that in truth, didn’t seem likely to arrive.

The home side sub Ndiaye was the man who got the goal, as the Senegal international beat a couple of very soft attempted tackles before firing under Forester.

Despite the presence of Harry Kane and Son Heng-min, Spurs were unable to respond in the closing stages and saw another opportunity to extend their trophy go astray.
