Northampton and Colchester meet at Sixfields Stadium in League Two on Saturday. After a difficult last season and an unpleasant end for Northampton, we have huge expectations.

Northampton vs Colchester – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Colchester had a terrible last season and then turned into a completely dominant side at the end. How will they start the new campaign? Here are our predictions.

Northampton to Win

Northampton have not shown us anything good between the two seasons – the team struggled in all aspects of the game in their friendly games and we are not sure that they are in their best form right now. The team remains the better one out of the two here and we also have Colchester's conflicting form too. The visitors also did not perform weel in their friendly games and won just one of six friendlies. We think that Northampton will get to the win.

Over 2.5 Goals

Colchester and Northampton were not among the high-scoring teams in the previous season and had a plethora of games with under 2.5 goals. Moreover, a lot of the head-to-head matches between these teams also ended in under 2.5 goals. However, both sides have been having goal-packed games with goals from both sides in the off-season and we see some improvements in attack from Colchester. We expect an over 2.5 here.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

Northampton had one of the best teams defensively meaning that they had the best defense in the entire league. The team conceded only 38 goals in 46 games last season, which was impressive. However, their current form suggests a decline in defense while Colchester have definitely improved in attack. We have no doubts that Northampton will score here but we also believe that the visitors have it in them as well.

Northampton vs Colchester Match Preview: Northampton on track for promotion

Northampton

Northampton were one of the top teams in the previous campaign and rightfully reached the final playoffs for promotion to League One. The team, however, lost at the semi-finals and will have to play another season in the 4th tier of English football. If we were to base our expectations on the previous season, we would expect them to be at the top again but there is no guarantee right now because of their poor overall performances.

Colchester

Colchester spent most of last season in the relegation zone or the places around it and only improved at the most important final months. The team had several winning streaks and even managed to reach as high as 15h place, where they finished last season. Colchester have a lot of potential and especially in attack but their defense does not seem improved at all. This was their main problem in the previous season as they conceded 60 goals in 46 games.
