Result After 30 mins: Draw

Both Cambridge and Cheltenham tend to start games slowly. Cheltenham have scored only 3 league goals inside the opening 30 minutes all season. Cambridge are a bit better with 7 goals scored, but at home, they take on average 33 minutes before they score.

Also, as this is a direct clash between two sides close to each other in the standings and battling for survival we believe the result after only 30 minutes will be a draw.

Over 2.5 Goals

In all of the last 3 games between the sides, there had been more than 2.5 goals scored. To add to that, Cambridge managed to score 8 goals in their last 3 games against Cheltenham. Also, in 3 of Cheltenham’s last 4 away league games there were more than 2.5 goals scored.

All this makes us predict that this could happen again.

BTTS

Both clashes between the sides in 2022 saw BTTS and we think this might happen again now. Back in April, the result was 2-2 when Cambridge were hosts. In September Cheltenham won 2-1 at home.

Also, Cheltenham might have lost all of their last 4 away league games but they still managed to score at least 1 goal in 3 of them.

Cambridge vs Cheltenham preview: Form and Team News

Cambridge

Cambridge dropped into the relegation zone after being able to achieve just 1 win in the last 13 rounds. The form in 2023 had been particularly poor – only 2 points from the last 7 league games.

Part of the reason for the long run of poor results are the many injury issues. Cambridge have 6 long-term absentees. Among them the 2 main inner midfielders Dunk and May. Also, third important midfielder Brophy and 2 other players are deemed doubtful for the coming match.

Cheltenham

Cheltenham are just about hanging above the relegation zone after being able to achieve only 1 win in the last 10 rounds. The team’s form on the road had been particularly poor as of late – lost 5 of their last 6 away league games.

Problems in defence where regulars Williams and Freestone are missing injured. The main holding midfielder Bonds is also nursing an injury and is considered a doubt.
