Cambridge United vs Bury
England- League Two.
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Abbey Stadium (Cambridge).
After a 3 match win streak in the league, the U’s were defeated in their previous match against Oldham, 3-1. With 10 defeats and 5 wins in their 18 matches, they stand 21st in the table. There are only 4 points separating them and the relegation zone.
They have one of the worst defensive units in the league, which has already conceded 30 goals while scoring 17 instead.
In 6 recent competitive matches, they have 4 wins and a defeat. Recent 3 games played by United saw over 2.5 goals in total. At home, they are on a 3 match win streak and has 4 wins in 5 previous home matches. But those wins came against Grimsby and Macclesfield who are at the bottom of the table.
Under 2.5 goals were scored by both the teams in their last 3 home matches in the league.
The visitors are on a 4 match winning streak in all competitions. All of those matches saw over 3.5 goals in total at the final whistle. With this recent form, Bury are 8th in the table, just outside the playoff spot.
That will be in their minds as they travel to Cambridge for this match. A win may take them to third place below Lincoln. Their success at the start of the season is mainly due to the 32 goals they scored already in the league. The Shakers have also been average in their defending conceding a goal per game.
From the recent 6 games on the road, Bury has 3 wins and only 1 loss. Over 2.5 goals came in 6 of the last 9 games on the road. Manager Ryan Lowe has done a good job after his team was relegated this season. They have been playing some good attacking football, winning matches by at least 2 goals recently.
The hosts will have a real problem as far as their defense is concerned. Keeping a strong attacking side like Bury silent is a Herculean task for sure. So in paper Bury are favorites for winning this one.
