Exeter vs Cambridge United Prediction

Exeter further reiterated their desire for the top spot by taking down Forest Green by a narrow 1-0 scoreline in their last League Two clash on the road. The hosts further extended their winning streak to two games in all competitions by upsetting the odds to get the better of Ipswich in the EFL Trophy.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team have not been at the losing end in any of their previous eight clashes in the fourth division.

On the other hand, Cambridge United have been struggling to get things going for them this term. They have admitted defeat in all but one of their past five clashes, with their only win coming against rock-bottom side Morecambe.

To make matters worse, the guests have dropped points in ten of their past three outings. Currently, they are on a two-match losing streak away from home as well.

Furthermore, Cambridge United have been recording back to back defeats in each of their last three visits here. Given the evident difference in form between the two sides, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Exeter this weekend.

In addition, the visitors have been virtually invisible in the final third in their recent outings. Miserably, they have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four trips on the road.

Meanwhile, the hosts have kept a clean sheet in four of their past six games at home. Taking into account that Exeter have also won each of their last three h2h meetings here by a 1-0 scorecard, count on the hosts to deprive Cambridge United of even a consolation goal.
