Burton Albion vs Oxford United Prediction, Odds, and Top League One Tips

With two postponed games yet to be played, it’s hard to say if Burton Albion will stay in the relegation zone for long. Especially if coach Dino Maamria’s boys defeat Oxford United on the 28th of January.

Oxford United to Win

Pirelli Stadium is no longer a venue that strikes fear into the opponents’ hearts. Burton Albion have lost too many matches this season at home so they can hardly be considered favorites to win against anyone.

With six consecutive victories for Oxford United against Burton Albion, it’s understandable why we base the Burton Albion vs Oxford United prediction on a solid performance by the visitors. The last time Burton Albion managed to poach points away from the U’s was on the 11th of February, 2020.

Victor Adeboyejo to Score Anytime

Say what you want about Burton Albion’s performance as a team this season, but Victor Adeboyejo has been a true gem this season. Without him, the Brewers’ ticket to League Two would’ve been punched long ago.

He slid it past the goalkeepers on 11 occasions this season and he’s on penalty duty. Victor Adeboyejo is the focal point of attacks and he’s certainly a man who needs to be tightly marked in the penalty area. Oxford United are good, but they are known to make mistakes at the back, which the 25-year-old might exploit.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Burton Albion vs Oxford United prediction here is for plenty of goals at Pirelli Stadium. How could it be otherwise when nine of the last 10 games between the two teams ended with at least three goals being scored?

The last dull game was recorded on the 2nd of February, 2019, when the two teams shared the spoils after a goalless tie.

Burton Albion vs Oxford United: Match Preview & News

If you want to make a solid Burton Albion vs Oxford United bet, you better check out the brief match preview we have stored for you below.

Burton Albion

The Brewers’ management shouldn’t be too surprised why they have the 3rd-lowest attendance in the league. The club is in the relegation zone and is participating in a survival battle against the likes of Morecambe and Forest Green. What else could you expect from your fanbase after such a devastating performance?

After back-to-back postponements, Burton have been carrying the weight of the heavy defeat against Shrewsbury for almost 2 weeks. Dino Maamria comes into the game with his team still struggling with the big threat of relegation and there could be changes to the line-up as a result. Burton Albion are just a point above the bottom. Conor Shaughnessy is the only injury problem for the hosts.

Oxford United

We feel that the Burton Albion vs Oxford United prediction you saw above is more than sufficient for you to make a good bet due to the U’s tremendous season. Everyone pegged them to be a relegation-linked side this season but coach Karl Robinson’s boys defied all odds and are currently sitting in 12th place with dreams of promotion.

Karl Robinson saw his team’s winning sequence end with the loss to Wycombe. However, there may not be a lot of changes to the line-up as the visitors target a push for the play-off places. There are no injury concerns for Robinson and his team ahead of the game. Remove matches, Oxford have been particularly good and they have picked up five wins in the last six games against Burton.
