Colchester vs Exeter Prediction & Match Preview

Colchester vs Exeter
England- League Two.
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Colchester Community Stadium (Colchester).

Both the teams are in contention to promotion play-off, and we can expect a tightly contested match on Saturday.

Colchester are 4rth in the table with 9 wins and 5 defeats in their 18 league games. They have excelled in both scoring and defending their goal. With 31 goals scored and only 18 conceded they are playing great football until now. But their consistency is questionable with a recent loss to bottom side Grimsby.

They are on a 3 match losing streak in all completions and the latest defeat was against Newport in the league. The most frequent final score in last 7 games they played was 1-0, which occurred in 5 consecutive matches. All 6 of those 7 games had under 2.5 goals at the final whistle.

But at home it’s just the opposite. They are on a commendable 5 match win streak in all competitions, and 3 of those had been in the league. The Grecians are winless in their last 5 league games, which includes 2 defeats. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 5 competitive macthes.

They are also on a poor away run, as they had no wins in the last 5 matches on the road. Under 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 5 away fixtures as well. This was not a performance which the fans expected from a team that finished 4th last season.

Manager Matt Taylor will have to come up with something new to get his team going as soon as possible.

The visitors are just a point below their opponents for Saturday. So this is a must win games for both the teams to maintain their position in the league table.

Colchester vs Exeter: Prediction

The home team have been great at home recently. A 5 match win streak is the proof for that. But the away side has been just the opposite. They have not found 3 points in 5 games in the trot. So it’s pretty clear that the home team has more chances of winning at this ground also taking into account the h2h played here. So a bet can be placed on a home win with 1.61 odd.

Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of the last 5 h2h matches played at this particular venue. Half of the games played by Colchester saw a final score with more than 2.5 goals. This is also the case in 8 games played by the visitors. So we can bet on a score of over 2.5 goals with 2.05 odd.
