Peterborough vs Cambridge predictions and top betting tips
This all League One affair in the EFL Trophy will surely be an exciting watch for those of you who will be tuning in. Check out our predictions and top betting tips below.
Full-time result prediction: Peterborough United to win
For the first prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide have gone with a win for the home side, Peterborough United. Despite having a somewhat stuttering start to this current League One season with three wins and three defeats, the upcoming game, against their local rivals, is the perfect opportunity to kickstart their season. Cambridge United currently sit three points above their opponents in the league but with many changes in the teams expected, we predict Peterborough to have the stronger team out on the day to get the job done.
Both teams to score prediction: No
For our second prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide have gone with both teams not to score. Checking the form guide, Cambridge have only been involved in one game in their previous five outings that have seen both sides score whereas the hosts for this game, Peterborough United, have been involved in two games where both sides have failed to score. The previous five meetings between Peterborough and Cambridge have seen two games where both sides scored and three where both sides failed to do so.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Peterborough United
For our third and final prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide have gone with a 2-0 win for the home side, Peterborough United. Four of Cambridge United's previous five games have seen three 2-0 scorelines plus an additional 2-0 scoreline the last time these two sides faced off against each other. Peterborough have started the season slowly and come into this game on the back of three defeats in the league but they are showing all the signs that they can score goals with the club scoring four in their last three matches in all competitions. Peterborough United have home advantage for this tie and that will give them the boost they need to turn their stuttering start to the season round.
Peterborough United vs Cambridge United preview
Peterborough United preview
Peterborough United enter this encounter on the back of three straight defeats in league football for the first time since December of last year. The club also got to Wembley last season in the League One play off final but was shocked when Sheffield Wednesday managed to overturn Peterborough United's 4-0 first-leg win to come back and win the second-leg 5-1 which saw the tie go to penalties with Peterborough losing the shootout 5-3. Boasting the likes of Jonson Clarke-Harris, Kwame Poku, and Ephron Mason-Clarke, the club are gifted when it comes to their attacking options and they will be hoping their top players can pull them to promotion once again.
Cambridge United preview
Cambridge United only just survived relegation back to League Two last season finishing just one point above Milton Keynes Dons who were the highest placed of the four sides who suffered relegation to the bottom division in the EFL but have started this season much more organised which has shown in their six games so far this season, the club currently sit in sixth place having picked up four wins from their opening six games losing the other two.
