ROCHDALE VS TOTTENHAM

LEAGUE ; FA CUP ROUND 5 
DATE : 18-02-2018
VENUE : SPOTLAND STADIUM 
TIME : 1900 HRS GMT+3

 The FA  cup has been largely easy for the top four teams at the premier league as they have faced league one and championship opponents. Rochdale has had a good run of form in the fa cu tie. They are performing dismally in the league contrary to our expectations that they can achieve higher given that they have had a good form in the cup tie.They are bottom of the table with just 25 points from 28 league matches and might be relegated if their form does not improve.

Rochdale played Bristol rovers on Tuesday evening  and they suffered a 3-2 defeat making it seven defeats in their last thirteen matches. On the other hand, Tottenham  played Juventus in Turin on Tuesday in the champions league tie which ended in a draw thanks to Harry Kane and christian  ericksen goals. 

Tottenham Hotspurs have gone thirteen consecutive  matches without a single defeat in all competitions. They have fairly struggled in the fa cup. the fourth round saw them getting held to a 1-1 draw by new port county in the first leg of the tie and won 2-0 in the replay match.
Tottenham have not been performing well on the road, they have drawn four times away from home in the past four matches. Rochdale is expected to put a high defensive line at their back and this might cause problems to Spurs. So it is expected that the match will be a tough one.
