Portsmouth to Win

Even though Doncaster beat Portsmouth both times in the league last season, our prediction for this match is for Portsmouth to win. After all, Portsmouth started the season in League One with three wins, while Doncaster lost all three of their matches. So, the guests are clearly in better form and they are the better team as well.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While just two of the last five head-to-head meetings between Doncaster and Portsmouth have gone over 2.5 total goals, we expect this match to go over. The reason lies in the fact that we expect Doncaster to push hard from the beginning since they really need a win here to break their losing streak, which would leave a lot of room for Portsmouth to score and we believe that these teams can combine for at least three goals in the game.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect a high-scoring game, we also expect both teams to score in this one. After all, both teams have scored in three of the last five h2h matches between Portsmouth and Doncaster, so this wouldn’t be a huge surprise if it happened. That being said, we’ve seen both teams score in just one of the six matches played by these two teams in League One since the start of the season.

Doncaster vs Portsmouth preview: Can Portsmouth keep the run going?

The two teams enter this game in completely different moods, but we still expect to see an interesting match. With that in mind, here’s more information about both teams:

Doncaster

The season didn’t start well for Doncaster, a team that spent most of last season in the middle of the table. However, they lost all three league matches at the start of the new season, although two of those three were away games. On the bright side, Doncaster eliminated Wallsall in the EFL Cup, although they did need penalties in order to do so.

Portsmouth

The former Premier League clue failed to make the playoffs in League One last season, but they seem eager to do better this year. In the first three matches in the league, Portsmouth managed to win all three and they are currently sitting at the top of the standings. However, the team was eliminated from the EFL Cup after they lost their game to Millwall in the first round.
