Birmingham to Win 

Unfortunately for The U’s, they landed one of the most one-sided match-ups in the first League Cup round. It also doesn’t help that Colchester just had its worst season in over 20 years. The guest side finished 20th in League Two and was close to being knocked out of the EFL and into the 5th tier of English football. Head-to-head the teams have played just two games together, one being drawn and the other won by Birmingham. Furthermore, the hosts just won over the recently relegated Sheffield United and got off to a good Championship start. 

BTTS – Yes 

Back in the season of 2006/2007, essentially in Colchester’s peak form, both the games they played resulted in a BTTS – Yes outcome. Now it would be much harder for The U’s to score, but Birmingham has recently shown weakness, so the possibility is there. The hosts kept just 2 clean sheets in their last 10 games, conceding 11 goals in their 5 pre-season friendlies. What was most concerning was losing 3-1 to Tamworth FC, which plays in the semi-professional Southern League. 

Over 2.5 Goals 

According to the previous game results, this match-up tends to produce goals. Looking through Birmingham’s games we can see a ton of goals getting scored. 7 out of Birmingham’s last 10 have resulted in over 2.5 goals, with 5 of them covering the over 3.5 goals bet as well.

Are Lee Bowyer and his squad prepared for the new campaign? 

Great expectations are set for Lee Bowyer’s career as a manager. His first achievement was promoting Charlton to the Championship and is now working on bringing Birmingham back to the top. Being appointed near the end of the 2020/2021 campaign he didn’t have the time to make the impact he wanted. 

With a new season ahead of us, Lee Bowyer will show us if he can continue his success. The pre-season friendlies were a bunch of mixed results with a lot of goals conceded. The game versus Colchester will be a great opportunity to fine-tune the team before the Championship takes off with full force.
