Plymouth to Win

The Pilgrims have started the new season well with one win and one loss in the league, along with a convincing win over Peterborough in the EFL Cup. Meanwhile, Cambridge is still waiting on their first win in the league, so our prediction for this match is for Plymouth to win since they are in better form and they are playing at home.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last three head-to-head matches between Plymouth and Cambridge have gone over 2.5 total goals. In fact, all three of theme have even gone under 1.5 total goals, so we can see a trend of low-scoring games between these two teams. With that in mind, we expect to see fewer than three goals in their upcoming duel as well.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we don’t expect to see many goals in this game, we also don’t expect both teams to score in it. After all, we haven’t seen this happen in the last three duels between Plymouth and Cambridge, so there’s no reason to expect something different in their next game. In addition to this, none of the first three matches played by the home team in all competitions have ended with both teams scoring.

Plymouth vs Cambridge preview: Can Plymouth win third game in a row?

The home team is doing a bit better at the start of the new season, while the guests are still getting used to the tougher competition. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their upcoming duel:

Plymouth

The last season in League One wasn’t that great for Plymouth since the team finished the season in the 18th spot in the standings. Still, relegation was avoided and that was the most important thing. Plymouth started the new season in the league with a win over Gillingham and a loss to Rotherham, as well as a great performance in a 4-0 win against Peterborough in the EFL Cup.

Cambridge

After gaining a direct promotion to League One by finishing second in League Two the previous season, Cambridge will be hoping for a good season – which basically means avoiding relegation. The team drew with Oxford and lost to Accrington in the first two league matches, but they also managed to eliminate Swindon in the EFL Cup after they did better on penalties.
