Cambridge to Score First

Oxford had been struggling defensively all season. In recent weeks they had gotten only worse. Currently, they are on a run of 11 consecutive games without a clean sheet. At the same time, in all their struggles Cambridge remain aggressive at home and they managed to score at least once in all of their last 4 home matches. Considering all that our first Cambridge vs Oxford prediction is that Cambridge will score the first goal of the game.

Cambridge or Draw

With our second Cambridge vs Oxford prediction we venture into the double chance market. We believe Cambridge will be able to earn something at home from this match.

Our reasons are as follows. Oxford’s form in the last 6 rounds had been the worst in the entire division – (W0 D1 L5). Also, Cambridge haven’t lost at home any of the last 7 editions of this fiery derby – W3 D4

Over 2.5 Goals

With 2 of the last 3 clashes between the sides going well over 2.5 total goals – 4-1 and 4-2 – we think this might happen again. Considering Oxford’s poor defending mentioned above, Cambridge’s desperate need for points and the general charge always coming with this clash between these old rivals we see it turning into another goal fest.

Cambridge vs Oxford Lineups, Team News and Form

Cambridge

Cambridge find themselves 3 points adrift from safety after earning just 1 win in the last 14 rounds. Still, 2 draws in the last 4 games show that the fighting spirit is still there.

The squad’s health remains a serious issue. Continue to have 7 long-term absentees, among them important defender Dunk and star playmaker May. On top of that experienced centre-back Taylor and dangerous winger Knibbs (5 goals) are considered major doubts

Oxford

The U’s had been playing some awful football in the last month or so. They’ve earned just 1 point from the last 6 league matches. Also, haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet in the last 11 rounds. As a result, all promotion hopes look over now and Oxford seem to be stuck in mid-table for the rest of the season.

Star playmaker Bodin is out injured. Also, Browne is deemed doubtful for this weekend. Main striker Joseph (6 goals) is in a hole right now, he hasn’t scored in the last 7 rounds. Despite that Joseph’s expected to start up front.
