Gillingham to Win

It's clear that the guests are favourites in this game since they play in a league above Colchester and the bookies agree with this. In fact, we agree as well and our prediction is for Gillingham to win this game, especially since Gillingham won three of the last five head-to-head duels against Colchester. 

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Neither team is playing high-scoring matches this season, which is reflected in their averages in their respective leagues. For example, Gillingham averages 2.20 goals per game in League One, while Colchester averaged just 1.60 goals per game so far in League Two, which is among the worst in the league. Also, three of their last five duels have gone under 2.5 total goals as well.

Both Teams to Score – No

Three of the previous five h2h matches between Colchester and Gillingham have ended without both teams scoring a goal in the match and we don't expect to see both teams scoring in this game either. That being said, both teams have scored in 80% of all Gillingham matches in League One, while the same is true for 60% of all Colchester matches in League Two. 

Colchester vs Gillingham preview:

Both teams enter this game in similar form, so this should be a very close game. With that in mind, let's take a more detailed view at both teams ahead of this game:

Colchester

The start of the new season wasn't the best for Colchester since the team only managed to win one game in the first five matches in League Two, along with three draws and one loss. Furthermore, Colchester was eliminated in the first round of the EFL Cup as well, after they lost their match against Birmingham. So, a win in the first round of the EFL Trophy would be a good confidence boost for the team.

Gillingham

Just like their upcoming rival, Gillingham also started the new season with just one win in the first five rounds in the league. However, Gillingham also has two draws and two losses in League One, which is a bit better. The team also managed to get out of the first round in the EFL Cup after beating Crawley Town on penalties, but they lost in the second round against Cheltenham, once again after penalties.
