Northampton Town vs Cambridge United Free EFL Trophy Match Predictions

Losing the first game of the competition was a huge setback for both Northampton and Cambridge United. The hosts were thrashed 6-0 by Ipswich Town in the first match of the competition while Cambridge United suffered a 2-0 loss in the hands of Arsenal U21. Our best free predictions for the second game of the competition between Northampton Town and Cambridge United are:

Under 2.5 goals

Under 2.5 goals is our first Northampton Town vs Cambridge United prediction. Losing the first game in the competition without scoring highlighted the need to bolster attacking on both sides. While Northampton has won the last three games since losing their first game of the EFL Cup, the visitors have only won once and lost the other two. Cambridge is likely to struggle to score in this game in as much as they fight hard to avoid another defeat. We are tipping a low scoreline.

Northampton to score first

Northampton has improved immensely since suffering a humiliating 6-nil defeat in the first cup fixture against Ipswich. They now have three wins, two with clean sheets, in the last three games. Together with expected home support in this cup fixture, the hosts are our favourites to open the scoring.

Northampton to win

We are further tipping a win for Northampton in this clash with Cambridge United. They have hosted Cambridge six times, lost only once in those fixtures, drew four times and won once. The hosts are having a strong resurgence after losing their first cup fixture while Cambridge hasn’t got any better. We think a narrow home victory in this game is very likely.

Northampton Town vs Cambridge United EFL Trophy Clash Preview

Northampton Town

Northampton Town sits last on EFL Trophy Southern Group H. They lost 6-0 against Ipswich in the first group stage match. The embarrassing defeat has confined Northampton to a struggling positition, so their main aim is to get some goals in this clash to reduce the massive goal difference in the group. They have won against Cambridge United four times, draw four times against the visitors and lost five matches in previous duels.

Cambridge United

Cambridge United is second-last in Group H. They lost 2-0 against Arsenal U21 in the first game of the competition. It will not be easy getting the much-needed points in this trip to Northampton. A poor run of 1 win and 2 losses since the league trophy defeat further threats Cambridge's prospects of winning their second league trophy game.
