Luton vs AFC Wimbledon
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road (Luton).
A game between two teams from extreme ends of the spectrum. The overall form during this season, and subsequently their current objectives are entirely contrasting. Luton is the table-topper and needs just one more win to ensure their direct-promotion to the Championship. More than that, they have set sights on the title as well. The team needs only five points to mathematically secure the league crown.
Wimbledon, meanwhile, is languishing in the relegation zone. They have been trying extremely hard recently, but still needs to overcome a deficit of one point from the next three ties. The fact that they are on the road against the potential champion might be pulling their hopes down though.

Luton vs AFC Wimbledon Prediction
Luton needs just a single win to ensure direct promotion to the Championship, and just five more points to lift the title. With just three more match-days remaining, the team would not take a chance and would try to finish things off as early as possible. They do have the home advantage and is taking on a relegation battler. On top of that, Luton has a 100% winning record in League One h2h matches and won three of the last four meetings.
In addition, four of the last five h2h encounters saw Luton scoring two or more goals, and in seven of their last eight home ties as well. Importantly, they were unbeaten in 23 of their last 24 home fixtures, and 17 of them were wins. Expect a home win this Tuesday.
Wimbledon will not roll over and let go of their future that easily though. Instead of spending a season in the lower division, the team would fight as if their lives depended on it in the next three match-ups. They were also unbeaten in eight of their last nine away ties, while Luton conceded in four of the last six fixtures, and two or more goals in two of their last three home ties. The desperate lot would sweat blood on the pitch, and find the back of the net at any cost.
