Spurs last won a diadem in 2008 and will be aiming for a win against the Dale to bolster their chances

Tottenham Hotspur square off with Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Crown Oil Arena on Sunday.

Having failed to nick a diadem in ten years despite their impressive outing in their last three seasons, Spurs will be rooting for victory in their quest to banish the unfortunate record.

Besides, they will not be lacking in confidence in this clash after putting up decent showings lately. They came from behind to hold Juventus on Tuesday night in the Champions League round of 16 tie at Allianz Stadium, just three days after edging past Arsenal in the Premier League. Therefore, Bet9ja is backing them to clinch another win at the odds of (1.18).

Though both sides will be meeting for the first time, punters who are bold can back a stalemate at an offer of (7.50).

Rochdale are currently not in their best of form with their ultimate aim being to avoid relegation from the League One at the end of the season. They are at the bottom of the log with 25 points from 28 matches. And after losing their last outing against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday, they stand a very slim chance of turning the table against their visitors at a hefty price of (14.25).

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have scored nine goals in their last five games and considering that they are playing a third-tier side, the bookies have quoted (1.47) for over 2.5 goals to surface in the clash and (1.60) is available for both sides NOT to score.

Spurs have scored the last goal in their previous five games and Bet9ja is backing them to repeat the feat in Greater Manchester at the price of (1.19).
