Peterborough vs Portsmouth
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 7 March 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Weston Homes Stadium (Peterborough)
Peterborough showed real determination in the reverse leg to get a point against this opposition. After giving away a 2-1 lead to the hosts they scored to make things equal at Portsmouth.
Portsmouth may be above the home team in the points table but their away form raises serious questions. Away from home, they have conceded more goals than they scored. We can expect a great game of football on Saturday.
Peterborough vs Portsmouth: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Posh remain unbeaten in 2 matches against Portsmouth.
- Portsmouth won 3 and lost once in their last 5 meetings.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches.
- The visitors have won twice at this ground in 3 matches.
- All 3 games at this venue had over 2.5 goals.
Peterborough vs Portsmouth: Prediction
Portsmouth is the only team that remains unbeaten at home. But away form of Pompey has been disappointing, to say the least. They have lost half of their 16 matches on the road and have only 5 wins during this period. The latest of those traveling losses came against Fleetwood town.
This makes two consecutive away defeats for Portsmouth in 2 matches. They won all 3 games prior to this losing spell.
This match also has another specialty. The hosts are the top scorers this league season with 66 goals. They are scoring at a rate of 1.94 goals per game. On the other hand, the visitors have conceded very few in their last 5 league matches. This will be a test for the away defense for sure.
Peterborough has lost only twice at home till now. Also with an active winning streak going on Pompey will have to be extremely careful in approaching this matchup. Based on their current form I am backing a win for the hosts with less than 2.5 goals at full time.
Peterborough vs Portsmouth: Betting Tips
