We offer a forecast for the England championship match, in which Plymouth will host Portsmouth on 16 November. Will the guests be able to resist? – the answer is in our material.
After being away from the First League for one season, Plymouth have started again in the third strongest league in England. The team managed to play only ten fights, in which they won five victories and shared points with opponents three times.
On October 24, the Green Army drew with Wigan (1: 1), then won twice – over Doncaster (2: 1) and Swindon Town (4: 2). It should be noted that the “ Pilgrims ” have the worst line of defense among the first 11 clubs in the league.
The two-time champion and winner of the FA Cup last season stopped one step away from entering the Championship. In 11 rounds of the new championship, the Pomps managed to get six victories and drew twice, which brought 20 points and the seventh position in the standings.
Following the defeat to Charlton (0: 2), Kenny Jackett’s charges defeated Lincoln (3: 1) on the road, for which we made a forecast. It should be said that the guests have the second most effective line of attack in the First League.
Plymouth won their last four bouts
Both teams have drawn only 1 of the last 10 duels
In 4 of the last 6 matches, the opponents have diverged in peace
The last personal meeting ended in a draw (1: 1)
02/09/19 Plymouth Portsmouth eleven
09/01/18 Portsmouth Plymouth thirty
04/14/18 Plymouth Portsmouth 0: 0
11/25/17 Portsmouth Plymouth ten
04/14/17 Portsmouth Plymouth eleven
The hosts started quite successfully in the new season, besides, they play well at home. Portsmouth are struggling to enter the Championship, but the team clearly lacks stability.
Most likely, Plymouth will not close on the defensive, because today’s opponent is convenient for them, while the peaceful outcome of the match will certainly suit all the participants in the match. We expect that the opponents will split the points, because they have a clear drawback of such a variant of the outcome, but still we will hedge the bet.
Our prediction is that Plymouth will not lose and we bet on this on the line of BK Fonbet with odds 1.84
