Luton Town vs Derby County
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Kenilworth Road, Luton.
Game after game they were labelled as big underdogs, and they keep surprising everyone for weeks now. Luton Town have won seven games in a row across all competitions, hoping to extend this magical streak this Saturday at home turf against Derby County.
This squad barely avoided relegation in campaign 2019/2020, and their fans would probably be super-happy with one of the middle table positions. Can they hope for something bigger?
Bookies certainly don’t think so, giving lower odds on Derby to win this match at 2.50. However, you should expect a narrow contest.
Luton Town vs Derby County Head-to-head
There were 22 duels between these opponents in the past, and Luton Town are having a small 10-8 lead in terms of victories. They have been very dominant when it comes to appearances at this stadium, winning 8 out of 11, while losing only two.
Last season’s match at Kenilworth Road was extremely enjoyable to watch, ending in 5-goals thriller and 3-2 home win. Jayden Bogle’s own goal in 86th minute granted three points for Luton.
Eight out of the last ten head to head encounters had two goals or less scored.
Luton Town vs Derby County Prediction
It’s reasonable to expect that Luton’s phenomenal form and winning streak is going to end soon. They are a squad with limited quality and not so wide bench. Beating Barnsley and Reading consecutively without conceding one single goal is truly great for their standards, but keep in mind their roster hasn’t changed a lot in comparison to previous season where they were 19th. Luton also had one of the worst defensive stats in the league.
As for their opposition, Derby County started the new season with a home loss to Reading, followed with another poor appearance and another loss to Preston in League Cup. They do have quality to compete for top six though.
Draw definitely stands out when it comes to most probable FT outcome. Your stake obviously shouldn’t be high.
