Spurs won the Premier League version of this fixture 3-1 back in November and are 6/4 (2.50) to put one foot into the final with another victory here, whilst the Blues are slightly longer at 39/20 (2.95).
With little to choose in the 1X2 market, we have put together a 7/2 (4.50) play using bet365’s Bet Builder which would see plenty of action: Both Teams to Score, Over 2 goals, Over 2 cards, Over 5 corners for Tottenham.
Both teams to score is currently priced at just 8/13 (1.62) and with good reason. This bet has paid out in each of the last four clashes between the pair as well as in six of the last seven.
As well, Chelsea have scored in all but one of their away matches in all competitions this season and 80 per cent of such games have seen over two goals. The same play has landed in 67 per cent of Spurs’ home matches.
This fixture almost always has plenty of tough tackling and – as such – no shortage of bookings, which and the fact it is a semi-final could help as hunger to reach the final sets in.
There has been more than two yellow cards in eight of the last 10 meetings, including the infamous Battle of the Bridge when no fewer than nine Spurs players, along with three Chelsea men, were booked in a 2-2 draw.
Finally, Spurs average 5.33 corners per home game this season in the Premier League and have taken 49 across their last seven matches against Chelsea – an average of seven per game.
An exciting game seems to be in store on Tuesday night and this 7/2 (4.50) would ensure that fans get their money’s worth in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.
