Oxford vs Shrewsbury Prediction & Match Preview

Oxford United vs Shrewsbury
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 27th October 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Kassam Stadium, Oxford.

Oxford United hosts the 18th placed Shrewsbury in this weekend fixture at the Kassam Stadium. Right now in the relegation zone, this match seems the opportunity for the home team to make an effort to get themselves free from the tension of a battle for survival.

Shrewsbury travels to Oxford with the hopes of improving their fortunes, but the task at hand is a little harder than they might be expecting. Despite their bad performances all through the season, Oxford usually tries to raise their level while facing bottom-placed teams at home.

Both teams have scored 14 goals apiece from 15 matches in this tournament. But Oxford fares worse when goals conceded come into the picture. Shrewsbury has conceded 16 goals while the home team has conceded 24 goals from just 15 matches.

Shrewsbury is winless on the road in their last seven matches. They have just three wins in their last 17 matches away from home. It is likely that the home team will procure the win or the draw in this match.

The last 16 matches in a row between these teams have seen over 1.5 match goals being scored. Expect the trend to continue in this match as well.
