Oxford to Win

Burton trumped Oxford in terms of the teams’ first League One results of the campaign at the weekend when Albion’s win at Shrewsbury topped United’s draw at Cambridge, but we’re tipping the U’s to claim the spoils of victory on Wednesday. Oxford hammered Burton in each of the teams’ last two encounters in convincing 4-0 and 5-1 drubbings – the most recent of which was in May – and Karl Robinson’s men are our favourites to triumph as a result.

Over 2.5 Goals

Oxford’s 4-0 and 5-1 roastings of Burton in the clubs’ last pair of meetings weren’t the only high-scoring recent skirmishes between the teams. 100% of the last four fixtures featuring the sides produced over 2.5 goals with the net rattling 5.0 times per 90 minutes on average. Those thrill-a-minute recent battles suggest we should expect more action on Wednesday and the over 2.5 goals market is worth backing again with that in mind.

Over 1.5 Oxford Team Goals

Two of Oxford’s biggest wins of the 2020/21 season came at Burton’s expense and United’s forwards seemed to relish the chance to showcase their skills against Albion’s defence. Alongside scoring nine goals in their last two games against them, Oxford have notched at least twice in each of their last four assignments against Burton and they are an appealing option in the over 1.5 team goals market on Wednesday with that superb record considered.

Burton vs Oxford: Match Preview

Burton

January appointment Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink started his first full season in charge of Burton on a positive note last weekend when Albion carved out a narrow 1-0 victory at Shrewsbury Town. The Dutchman suffered the biggest defeat of his Burton tenure so far when he last faced Oxford in May however, and with memories of their 4-0 battering still relatively fresh, Albion could struggle to make it two wins from two.

Oxford

Oxford were denied a win on the opening weekend of the League One season by a late spot-kick leveller for Cambridge, though there were still plenty of positives to take from their overall performance. Carabao Cup quarter-finalists in 2019, Oxford will be hoping for another deep run in the competition this term and a date with a team they like to hammer – Burton Albion – is a great opportunity to build some momentum.
