Oxford vs Rochdale Prediction & Match Preview

Oxford vs Rochdale
England League 1
Date: Saturday, 26 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kassam Stadium (Oxford).

Both teams are performing admirably at the moment and will be keen to keep the momentum going. Of the two, however, Oxford is in the hunt for a spot in the top tier, and with their unbeaten streak, and home advantage, they really could make a push for the same.

But we need to take into account the form of Rochdale as well, in spite of the fact that they are on the road. And this leads to the deduction that goals are expected at either end of the pitch.

Oxford vs Rochdale Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Six of the former eight wins went to the U’s.
  • Three of the previous five clashes ended with Karl Robinson’s men scoring two or more goals.
  • Six of the former seven overall wins went to the teams that had hosted the tie.
  • Four of the preceding five meetings at this venue ended in four wins and a draw.
  • Three of the last four encounters at this ground saw the BTTS clause being fulfilled.

Oxford vs Rochdale Prediction

Robinson’s men are unbeaten in the preceding nine games and had won five of the former seven as well. In addition, they had also scored twice or more in 11 of their former 13 match-ups. At home, they went invincible in 17 of their previous 19 appearances, and five of their prior six. Moreover, they are on a streak of scoring twice or more in their last nine games here.

Meanwhile, their counterparts have a three-game winning run to boast of, but their form on the road is not that impressive, with them losing four of their prior five road trips.

Furthermore, h2h clashes have predominantly come out in favor of the U’s, and it has been an entirely different level at this stadium.

As such, a win for the hosts looks the probable ending this Saturday.

Coming to goals though, the visitors will be keen to keep their momentum going, and put a halt to their dismal run on the road. Moreover, Rochdale has scored two or more goals in their last five overall fixtures on the trot, and in the previous two on the road. Finally, Robinson’s men have conceded twice or more in two of their preceding four fixtures too.

Taking these stats into consideration, the chances for the BTTS wager look very bright this match-day.
