Colchester United vs Brighton U21: Top Free Betting Tips

Group 9's opening fixture saw Charlton triumph over Gillingham. The first round will be completed at the Colchester Community Stadium, where the U's take on the challenge of Brighton U21.

Colchester United to Win

Thanks to a hattrick by Evan Ferguson, Brighton U21 trounced their rivals from Leicester City U21. However, they have a tough task on their hands as they take on League Two outfit Colchester United. Although the U's are winless in four outings, they should have enough in the tank to get over the line. Home advantage is on their side, which should propel them in the right direction.

Over 2.5 Goals

Only one of Colchester United's last eight fixtures has seen three or more goals. It is not the case for Brighton, who have seen three of their last four fixtures conclude with Over 2.5 Goals. It is the youthful Seagulls who will be under pressure, making us predict a high-scoring affair at their own expense.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

With six goals in their last two outings, Brighton U21 will be confident in their ability to trouble Colchester United. The U's have found it difficult scoring but with their rivals conceding eight goals in their last four outings, we should see goals at both ends of the Colchester Community Stadium.

Colchester United vs Brighton U21: Team News and Match Preview

Colchester United

A midtable finish last season was more than what the U's deserved. It is being evidenced in their performances this year as Colchester struggle in 17th place. They are winless in four outings, losing three and drawing once. They need to get their attacking unit in order or it will be early curtains for their 2022/23 campaign ambitions.

Brighton U21

Despite going on the road, Brighton U21s gave a good account of their abilities at the LCFC Training Ground. Evan Ferguson merged as their saviour with an impressive hat trick. The 17-year-old will be required to step up again as the Seagulls will want to start on the right foot for a positive stint in the EFL Trophy.
