Exeter vs Northampton
England – League Two Playoff
Date: Monday, 29 June 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium.
This is it. The final hurdle. These ninety minutes will determine which of these two will pack their bags for the top flight, and which of the two will remain in this same competition at least for another year. A whole year of hard work boils down to these ninety minutes.
Both teams displayed exemplary fighting spirit in orchestrating comebacks in the second legs of their respective semifinal ties. And by all means we can expect the same fire this Monday as well.
As it is a do-or-die game, and considering the phenomenal grit of the two squads, expect one of the best games of the season at the Wembley Stadium this Monday, and for the game to turn into a goal-fest – especially taking into account the offensive potential of the teams.
Exeter vs Northampton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two clashed on the pitch, the Cobblers recorded a 2-0 win at home.
- Three of the previous four games had goals from both teams.
- Six of the prior seven wins had gone to the Cobblers.
- Three of the preceding four match-ups also had three or more goals.
- Six of the past seven encounters saw the Cobblers scoring two or more goals.
Exeter vs Northampton: Prediction
Both teams are high in confidence after the manner in which they turned around their first leg defeats with phenomenal performances in the respective return legs. Now, all that remains is these ninety minutes, and both teams will fancy their chances – especially with a ticket to the League One on line.
Considering the impressive displays of either offense in the recent past, as well as in their recent h2h encounters, we can expect at least one of the teams to find the back of the net any time during the ninety minutes.
And once one of the teams score a goal, the nature of the fixture will totally change. The team which conceded will then have nothing to lose, and they will be forced to relentlessly attack. This will lead to one of two things.
Either the relentless attack will lead to a goal, or ample spaces will be left behind due to these incessant runs, and the team which scored first will be able to increase the lead.
Anyhow, chances are very high that we are in line for a goal-fest.
