Draw No Bet: Bradford
Comparing both teams at this point of the season is more or less pointless. While the level of England's League Two is obviously not high, Man Utd U21 is not an official team but a formation that participates only in the EFL Trophy. While this could mean that Man Utd's youngsters will be well-rested and ready for this match, it also means that their chemistry could not be at the highest level. We believe that Bradford will not lose this match. If the match ends at a draw, the stake will be returned to you as void.
Man Utd U21 to score in 2nd half – Yes
When we look at the previous match played by United for the EFL Trophy in August we see that Manchester was more active in the second half. And since we do not have much to compare in terms of recent results, this seems to be a relatively “safe” bet. Furthermore, Bradford played a match on Saturday and three days is not a lot of time to recover. We expect that Man Utd U21 will be the stronger team in the second half.
Number of Goals in Match – 2 or 3 Goals
Bradford City is not a team to score a lot of goals. At least, their current form suggests this issue. In the last 5 matches, their only one with more than 2 goals was exactly their first fixture for the EFL Trophy. For your information, they lost 0:3 to Lincoln which currently plays in League One. In turn, Man Utd U21 also lost to Lincoln with 3:2. Since this will be an important match for both teams, the style of play will unlikely be open and the teams will be careful not to concede goals.
