Northampton vs Oxford United Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Northampton vs Oxford United will be an interesting game between two curious teams from the same league. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

These teams have not played in years but back in the day, most matches were very competitive and had high scorelines. Now, the teams are back in the same league but they have not yet met in the new season. We expect to see some goals in this game, especially after seeing the games of Oxford in recent matches. Their four most recent matches had BTTS in League One and we expect the same on the road. The team is strong in attack but their defense concedes almost every time.

Match Result Prediction: Oxford United to Win

The visitors have been playing exceptional football for the level of League One this season and deservedly sit near the top of the table. Northampton have not had this success and they seem to be the weaker team out of the two. They got promoted from League Two last season and logically, they should be the weaker team on paper. Even more, Oxford seem to be far better than expected and this makes us believe in the win, which will also come at some extreme odds.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Oxford United

This has been the most common result for Oxford in the new season and we expect something similar here. Northampton are not a bad home side and they will put up a fight here. This is an important match for both sides. However, when we compare the Northampton vs Oxford United line ups, we think that the visitors have a solid strength advantage and have shown it in the season to date.

Northampton vs Oxford United Team Previews

Northampton Preview

Northampton played an exceptional season in League Two but the new one in League One has started in a bad way. The team has one major problem – their attack is not effective and obviously needs immediate improvements. We think that Northampton are up for a difficult season and they will face one of the toughest rivals from their league here.

Oxford United Preview

Oxford United started the season with some exceptional performances. They have four wins in the last five games in all tournaments. The team is very strong in attack and their only problem is that their defense concedes a goal in every single game. They have to start defending better if they want to achieve anything, whether it is in League One or the EFL Trophy.
