Portsmouth vs Burton Albion Prediction & Match Preview

Portsmouth vs Burton Albion
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 23 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Fratton Park (Portsmouth).

Portsmouth want to remain at the top of the table after their Tuesday evening clash against Burton Albion.

The hosts have a very good chance to get a significant advantage over their closest rivals with a potential victory in this one. They suffered only one defeat in 14 rounds played so far and in the last five rounds, home side managed to celebrate four times.

Jamal Lowe and the lads are doing very well in the front, while their defence is very hard to crack. Portsmouth have been putting very good performances at home ground, but they’ve already allowed five points to their visitors.

After being relegated from the Championship last season, the visitors are not nearly close to bouncing back to the second tier. They are positioned in the middle of the table and promotion playoffs zone is already eight points away from them.

However, Burton Albion improved their performances lately as they managed to tie two straight victories. The away side haven’t been too productive and Nigel Clough should work with his team on the improvement in the final third.

The visitors have been putting poor away performances as they managed to get back home with just four points from six outings.

Portsmouth vs Burton Albion: Head-to-head

These two sides faced each other four times in their history and each team managed to celebrate one victory.

Portsmouth haven’t celebrated at their ground yet as both matches ended with a draw. Their clashes haven’t been too efficient and just one went over 2.5 margin.

Portsmouth vs Burton Albion: Prediction

The hosts are strong favourites in this one and they should be able to continue their good run of results. Burton Albion shouldn’t hope of getting anything from this one and all three points should remain at Fratton Park.

Since the crowd wasn’t able to enjoy a lot of goals in their head to head clashes and these two teams haven’t been involved in high scoring matches lately, this one shouldn’t be much different. The match should remain under 2.5 margin.

Portsmouth vs Burton Albion: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.90 (9/10)
  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.75 (3/4).
