These sides have met 78 times in the past with Tottenham winning 45, they have drawn 12 times and Millwall have won 21 times.
Spurs are unbeaten in their last 13 matches against Millwall and have won the last 4 in a row. The last time they met was back in 1990 in what was then the old League Division 1 and it was a Gary Lineker goal for Spurs that separated the sides.
Tottenham are the 3rd most successful club in this competition, they have reached the final 9 times and won 8 of them. Last time they won it was back in 1991 and their fans will be desperate to repeat that feat this season.
Millwall have never won this trophy but they did manage to reach the final for the first time back in 2004, Millwall were a Championship side then (first division) and they faced Manchester United. They did not manage to beat United and suffered a 3-0 loss but by reaching the final it was enough for them to qualify for the Europa league which gave there fans some fantastic evenings.
Tottenham’s form has been ok of late winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 2 of their last 6 in all competitions. They are currently on a run of 4 unbeaten however and last time out they managed a good 3-2 win over Everton in the league.
Millwall have been in very good form of late and are on an unbeaten run. They have won 4 and drawn 2 of their last 6. Last time out they managed a 2-1 home win over MK Dons in the league.
Tottenham are without Danny Rose and Erik Lamela for this tie but have no new fresh injury problems.
The only doubt for Millwall is the former Spurs goalkeeper Jordan Archer is a doubt to face his former club with groin strain.
The bookies have this priced up as you would expect, Spurs are priced @ 1/6 with a few clubs including Bet365 to win in 90 minutes. The draw is @ 8/1 with a few firms including Bet365 and Millwall are @ 20/1 with a few firms including Ladbrokes.
