Bradford vs Portsmouth Prediction & Match Preview

Bradford vs Portsmouth
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 3rd November 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Valley Parade, Bradford.

As the 17th round of League One competition is about to begin, we have possibly the worst team in the league hosting the best.

Bradford occupies the dead last spot on the table with just ten points from 16 matches, while Portsmouth tops the table with 35 points so far from the same number of matches.

Bradford has been following the same pattern for the last few weeks with a string of losses. Last week they were put to a 3-0 outclassing by Gillingham at their home.

Bradford held the game goalless until the end of the first half, but after the halftime, Gillingham tightened their screws and took the available three points with three goals in the space of 20 minutes.

Portsmouth will be disappointed with their last week result, as their fans expect much from them now. The standard has been set a little bit high and any result below that would not be termed satisfactory. The league toppers had to share points with Accrington. The game saw two quick-fire goals in the 62nd and 64th minute. The game ended in a 1-1 scoreline.

Jack Payne has impressed for Bradford with four goals in the league, but the figure needs to be a little higher for Bradford to climb up from the relegation zone.

Several players have stepped up for Portsmouth to share the goalscoring duties and it has really been their winning strategy. Of these players, Jamal Lowe and Ronan Curtis have impressed the most with six goals each.

Bradford vs Portsmouth Prediction

This will be one of the easiest games to predict this weekend, maybe for the whole season of League One games, except maybe for the reverse fixture. Portsmouth has easily been the best team of the league so far, while Bradford has been the worst.

Portsmouth has been on terrific form both at their home and on the road. As of now, they are unbeaten in their last 11 away games. They dropped points last weekend, and will definitely try to make amends for that. Improving their goal difference too will be on the agenda.

Expect Portsmouth to easily win this game. Goals will be scored with much ease from the first half itself.

As a bonus, punters could go for the Over 2.5 match goals option too @ 2.20 (6/5).
