Our Prediction:

Oxford Utd will win

Bristol Rovers – Oxford Utd Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

Such underlying number bode well ahead of a game against a struggling home side. They were unlucky not beat a strong Southend side in their most recent away match, while their defeat away to AFC Wimbledon prior to that was unmerited. On top of what was a commanding performance against Plymouth last time out, the Us have delivered a string of good performances on the road of late. Robinsons men have averaged 1.7 expected goals for in their last four on the road, while theyve conceded an average of 0.82 during that time.

However, while a lack of goals is hurting them, there are other problems at Memorial Stadium. Last weekend, they offered virtually nothing at Burton, while their efforts when losing at home to Walsall prior to that were also weak in terms of creativity. Rovers have also struggled when it comes to creating chances. In recent seasons, with Matty Taylor and Billy Bodin in their line-up, the Pirates were rarely short of goals, but having let both go, without bringing in apt replacements, Rovers now find themselves unable to hit the net on a regular basis.

Today's Tips

Both teams to score again here is 4/6, top price at Boylesports, another Oxford win yours at 8/5 through Coral. The Us won last weekend, beating Charlton in an upset at The Valley, a game filled with drama. Oxford United brought in Chelsea defender Todd Kane on loan until the end of the season, everyone connected to the club hoping the ambitious right back can help improve the team. Kashi and Magennis were both on target for The Addicks, Oxford twice hitting back, Henry and Kane keeping things interesting before Ledson scored a stoppage-time winner, 94 minutes on the clock.

We bet on Total under 3.5. Bristol Rovers, in their turn, will not afford losing points and therefore, we predict a boring game and 0-0 is rather possible outcome. The odds is valid at the moment of the prediction publication. We tend to believe that Oxford will be focused on defense to avoid the second loss on their home ground in a row not to disappoint their supporters.

On that occasion, the Pirates managed just five shots at goal, while they recorded just a single expected goal and emerged with an expected goal difference of +0.08, which doesnt exactly scream dominance. Rovers do come into this match off the back of two wins, but theyre still yet to really impress. Against Fleetwood they were aided by a red card, while the score-line didnt exactly tell the full story when they beat Walsall by three goals to one on Boxing Day.

A lack of goals continued to blight Darrell Clarkes men last weekend, as they failed to find the net for a fourth consecutive game. If ever there was a frustrating side, one that often plays reasonably well, but simply cannot get the ball in the net and one that has an awful habit of throwing games away, then it might just be Bristol Rovers this season. The manager has mentioned that an eagerness to move promising forwards on in recent times is now costing them, and while that may be true, Rovers should still be doing better.

Prior to their weak effort against the Shrimpers, Oxford were beginning to do well at home, especially in terms of overpowering the lesser sides, so theres definitely hope for the hosts. Whats more, Oxfords recent commanding performances against Rochdale and Gillingham bode well. The Us recorded a total 4.94 expected goals against those two opponents, while they conceded a total of just 1.53 at the other end. Southend were able to visit Kassam and nullify, but Bristol Rovers havent exactly been hard to pass on their travels this season.

After battling hard to earn a point away against a very good Doncaster side, Robinson wouldve fancied his men to make headway against Southend at the weekend, though the boss was forced to look on as his side delivered a rather flat performance. Theyll need to muster more than just a single shot on target if theyre to come out on top on this occasion.
