Midweek Football Preview

FA Cup replays!

FA Cup 3rd Round Replays

Newcastle vs. Rochdale

The previous fixture was a 1-1 draw as Newcastle failed to break Rochdale down. Newcastle have since drawn the game they have played while beat Bolton at the weekend. Rochdale have nothing to lose and the pressure is on Newcastle to win at home other wise a defeat would be embarrassing. 

Tranmere vs. Watford

Watford were winning 3-0 before Tranmere came back to draw 3-3. Tranmere since lost their game while Watford beat Bournemouth in a big game. Tranmere will make it difficult for the Hornets but Watford have the quality to win the game. 

Tottenham vs. Middlesbrough

Tottenham came back to draw the game against Middlesbrough and lost at the weekend to Liverpool while drew with Derby County. A tough game for both teams as Middlesbrough have decent enough players to nick a win. Mourinho though will want to progress as he looks to end Spurs trophy draught. 

Man United vs. Wolverhampton

The reverse fixture was a 0-0 draw and United won at the weekend while Wolves drew their game. A tough game especially with Wolves being better against bigger teams. Wolves could easily win but United will make it difficult.

Coppa Italia Round of 16

Coppa Italia is heating up in Italy as Napoli take on Perugia who are 8th in Serie B, Lazio take on Cremenose who are 17th in Serie B, Inter take on Cagliari, Atalanta travel to Fiorentina, Milan play SPAL, Juventus take on Udinese, and Parma invite Roma. Winnable fixtures for Napoli, Lazio, and Milan. The rest face decent tests to reach the quarter-fnals.
