Portsmouth to Win

Cambridge find themselves in the penultimate spot after losing 8 of their last 11 league games. They won just 1 of those 11 matches. At the same time, Portsmouth have been near-perfect in the last 4 rounds (W3 D1). Pompey also enjoy serious dominance in the H2H stats (W7 D1 L2). All that makes our first Cambridge vs Portsmouth prediction a logical outcome.

Result After 30 Mins – Draw

With 3 of Cambridge’s last 4 games locked in a draw after the opening 30 minutes, we think this might happen again. Our second Cambridge vs Portsmouth prediction is also backed by the fact that Pompey are notoriously slow starters. They have scored only 18.4% of their goals inside the opening 30 minutes.

BTTS – No

Our final Cambridge vs Portsmouth prediction is that at least one of the sides will be able to keep a clean sheet. Pompey did that in 3 of the last 4 rounds. They conceded just 1 goal in those 4 matches. At the same time, in only 1 of Cambridge’s last 5 league games both teams scored.

Cambridge vs Portsmouth Lineups and Team News

Cambridge

Cambridge with yet another poor display last weekend when losing 0-2 on their visit to Exeter. With 4 defeats in the last 5 rounds and a single win in the last 11 games, the situation is pretty desperate. The displays remain very poor, especially in attack with Cambridge having the fewest shot attempts and the fewest shots on target of any team in the last 6 rounds.

The squad remains badly crippled and weakened in every part of the pitch with 8 field players currently nursing injuries. Among them the important Dunk (starting centre-back), May (key playmaker) and Kribbs (main striker).

Portsmouth

Portsmouth played a very strong game when hosting Bolton last weekend and after an excellent attacking display a deserved 3-1 win was achieved. With only 1 goal conceded in the last 4 rounds and just 2 points dropped Portsmouth are just about keeping their slim promotion chances still alive.

Top scorer Bishop (13 goals) remains the main hope up front. Lately, the 18-year-old Scarlett has been helping him a lot. The teenager has created 7 big chances in just the last 3 rounds.

Pompey have no fresh injury issues, but they remain without 5 long-term absentees. Among them are the main left-back Swanson and the important inner midfielder Pack.
