Cambridge United vs Northampton Prediction

The host will be playing their opening match in the tournament and hence there is no streak to follow in the EFL fixtures. Their performance will be purely deduced from their previous home matches in major competitions and the h2h history with the traveling side.

The Cobblers had their opening match tied and later won it in the penalty shootout. Alongside that, their second attempt in the tournament resulted in a heavy loss at home. Moreover, the visitor has not been able to register a win yet in the EFL schedule.

Apart from that, the United squad has lost three of the last five home ties while the guest has recorded two losses and a draw from their previous five away fixtures in EFL. Moreover, their previous h2h meeting saw the host coming on top in the end. Also, both teams have seen the back of the net in the last six h2h encounters.

Henceforth, the chances of winning can be put to a double chance mostly favoring the home team. One can also expect to see goals at both ends of the field.
