Exeter vs Colchester
England – League 2 Playoff
Date: Monday, 22 June 2020
Kick-off at 17:15 UK/ 18:15 CET
Venue: St James Park.
The first leg of the semis was a tense affair, at the end of which the U’s secured a narrow 1-0 win. The sole goal of the match-up had come in the 81st minute.
While this lead in the aggregate does give the U’s an edge, the Grecians have a great h2h record against them over the years. Especially so at this venue the hosts have performed supremely well in the past in h2h clashes – so much so that they have a 100% unbeaten record here.
On that account, expect Exeter to deliver the better performance this Monday. However, considering the better recent form of the U’s and their aggregate lead, it’s though that they will score at least once this game week.
Exeter vs Colchester: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the previous thirteen games ended with three or more goals.
- Four of the past six wins had gone to the Grecians.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% unbeaten record in the past decade.
- The U’s have not scored a single goal at this ground in the last eight years.
- The combined scoreline for the preceding four match-ups at this stadium is 7-0, in favor of the hosts.
Exeter vs Colchester: Prediction
The Grecians have an unbeaten h2h record at this venue, and they even have a combined scoreline of 7-0 in four of the past h2h clashes here. Moreover, they are on an unbeaten run at home in the last 18 appearances, and they also remained invincible in 24 of the prior 25 games here.
On the other hand, the U’s were winless in eight of their former ten road trips. Considering these stats, it’s concluded that Exeter should win at least one half this Monday.
However, this is a knockout semifinal, with promotion to the League One at stake. On top of that, the hosts will be forced to go after goals as they trail in aggregate. The U’s will smartly take advantage of this situation and score at least once.
