At this point, it is safe to say that this has been one of the best seasons ever for Tottenham Hotspur. The team is currently 2nd in the Premier League with 53 points, 10 points away from the current championship leader, Chelsea. The upcoming match against Crystal Palace also looks like a match that Spurs can win if the players can stay true to form, but this match will have to wait.
This is because the match against Crystal Palace is scheduled on the same day as the FA Cup quarter-final match. Manchester United will be playing against Chelsea, while Tottenham will host Millwall for an epic FA Cup match at White Hart Lane.
Tickets and Other News
The biggest news coming out of this upcoming match is the disagreement between the two teams. Millwall would have been entitled to about 4,000 tickets for their fans, but – initially – Tottenham only offered 2,800 to the League One team. This resulted in a series of back and forth discussions regarding ticket allocation.
Eventually, the two teams reached an agreement. Tottenham allocated 3,681 tickets for Millwall, close to what the opposing team expected. The number was reached after a series of discussions involving the two parties, the local Safety Advisory Group, and representatives from the local council. This agreement means Millwall fans can start buying tickets to watch the March 12th clash between the two teams.
It is also worth noting that the betting scene for this match is particularly exciting. A lot of avid sports punters are already hard at work, analysing past matches between the two teams and making predictions.

The rivalry between Tottenham and Millwall stretches back longer than you might think. The two teams were in the United League when they first met in 1896. Millwall Athletic won against Tottenham Hotspur with a final score of 6-5. Since that first match, Tottenham has faced Millwall 78 times, winning 45 of those matches and maintaining the upper hand in the process.
Millwall, on the other hand, has only won 21 matches against Spurs. The two teams last met in 1990 during a League Division One match. Spurs won with a 1-goal lead at the time and the two have not met since.
If we look closer at past matches, Tottenham won four out of five matches against Millwall, with one match ending in a draw. The four matches were all League Division One matches, including the epic match on April 29th, 1989, where Tottenham won by a whopping five goals.
Preview and Predictions
As mentioned early in this article, Spurs are in sparkling form. They continue to show one great performance after another, securing 15 victories out of the 26 games that we’ve seen so far. Their 53 Premier League points are truly a sign of strength, considering the competition has been very tough this season.
A lot of sports fans and experts are predicting another victory against Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final match. That said, Millwall is eager to score a victory and is known to have great tactics when facing giants. It would be interesting to see what they do during the match against Tottenham.
