Ipswich to score first
These teams met twice previously in the EFL Trophy contest. Arsenal U21 won the first meeting in September 2020. However, the second duel ended 2-2 in December 2021. Unfortunately, Arsenal never scored the first goal in both encounters even though the visitors also won the second EFL Trophy duel with Ipswich on penalties. Six goals for the hosts in the first game of the contest this year means they can still score first, especially with home support. Arsenal has the tough challenge of playing away from home after a 2-0 victory in the first game of the 2022/23 EFL Trophy competitions.
Both sides to score
Ipswich and Arsenal are arguably some of the most in-form teams in the EFL Trophy 2022/23 competition. Clean sheet victories and at least two goals scored by both in the first game of Group stage matches is why we are backing another round of goals.
The fact that both Ipswich and Arsenal U21 had clean sheet wins in their first game complicates a winning equation in this clash. It is hard to hand either side a straight win in this second group stage match. While Arsenal won previous EFL Trophy encounters with Ipswich, the latter has improved immensely this season. We think the game with end in a stalemate.
