How does the Tottenham vs Middlesbrough FA Cup 3rd round replay work?
As the first match at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium finished 1-1, rules stipulate there will be a replay at the other team's home ground, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. If the replay also finishes in a draw, there will be 2 periods of extra time played out in full, 15 minutes each way. If the teams still can't be separated after extra time there will be a penalty shootout.
Who will win the FA Cup 3rd round match between Tottenham and Middlesbrough?
We love fairytales and underdog stories here at Finder and wish there were more of them. If Middlesbrough found a way to overturn poor Championship form and continue a magical FA Cup run, it would be great theatre and we would be all for it.
It would also be worth it just to see Jose Mourinho's post-match press conference.
But there is a reason those fairytale runs become so legendary – they don't happen very often. Mourinho is likely to pick a reasonably strong side and they will surely be too deep and too talented at home in this one.
