Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips: Carabao Cup Third Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Tottenham Hotspur haven’t won any major silverware since lifting this trophy in 2008, so will they stay on track to change that fact?

This time last week, Spurs came from behind to beat Marseille at Stade Vélodrome, thereby snatching top spot in their Champions League group.

Alongside that, Antonio Conte’s team are fourth in the Premier League, although they’ve now lost three of their last four.

Sunday’s 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool, proceeded by reverses against Man United and Newcastle, leaves Spurs eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal.

Of course, the Premier League and Champions League are important, but what Tottenham fans crave above all else is cup glory.

So, will the Lilywhites safely get through to round four?

These two clubs have met 121 times, the most famous of which came in the 1991 FA Cup Final, which Spurs won 2-1.

These days, Nottingham Forest are bottom of the Premier League, but there are encouraging signs for Steve Cooper.

The Reds drew 2-2 with Brentford on Saturday, snatching a point thanks to a fluke 96th minute own goal.

This means Forest are now unbeaten in three home games, drawing with Aston Villa and then beating Liverpool.

In this competition, Sam Surridge’s brace saw the Reds ease past Grimsby Town in round two.

Both clubs are four-times winners of this competition, but Forest have only reached the fourth round once in 18 seasons.

Will Tottenham avoid an early exit at the City Ground?
