Crawley vs Colchester Prediction & Match Preview

Crawley vs Colchester
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 29 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Broadfield Stadium (Crawley).

Crawley will try to make the most of the home advantage they have been afforded this Tuesday. Their league campaign so far has been in tatters, and the potential to make the Quarter Final of the EFL Cup will be welcomed with open hands. In spite of these, the incoming Colchester could make life complicated for fans at the Broadfield Stadium, with their comparatively superior form at present.

Crawley vs Colchester Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Seven of the former ten wins went to the Reds.
  • John McGreal’s men conceded twice or more in both these fixtures.
  • Five of the previous seven games had goals at either end of the pitch.
  • Five of the last six wins at this venue went to the hosts.
  • The last time these two met here, which was two weeks back, the game ended 2-1, in favor of the home side.

Crawley vs Colchester Prediction

The U’s have managed just two wins from their prior eight overall match-ups, and they have failed to find the back of the net in two of the previous three ties as well. On the road, the squad could record just three wins in total so far this season, and they forgot their scoring boots in their most recent road trip too.

In addition, these two had locked horns just two weeks back, which was also at this venue, and then the match ended 2-1, in favor of Crawley.

Add the home advantage to the list, and we should witness a fixture with the hosts avoiding a loss.

However, keep note that this is an opportunity to make it to the Quarter Final of significant competition, and for sure the guests will not let it go without a fight. Moreover, they are several spots above the hosts in the League Two table at the moment, and with the Reds conceding twice or more in five of their preceding seven games, chances for the BTTS clause to be fulfilled are very high.
