Portsmouth – Burton Match Prediction | 17-09-2019 14:45

Given the fact that the Brewers, whove scored an average of 3.2 goals in their last five, and Pompey, whove notched an average of 2.8 in their last five, have both excelled going forward of late, a relatively high-scoring game may just be a tad more likely than the current price suggests. In summary, its fair to say that both Burton and Portsmouth have been thriving in the final third of late, while both have shown a few defensive weaknesses. Keeping this in mind, Over 2.5 Goals stands out.

These two teams have a history of draws, and I think we see another one tomorrow, although 1 point won't do much good for either of these squads. While this is an important game for both teams, it means a little bit more to Portsmouth with Burton already on the ropes, and unlikely to make the postseason. They are also playing at home. Portsmouth has 7 wins more, and 7 losses fewer than Burton this season, plus net goal difference advantage of 19 over Burton. That being said, Burton is scrappy squad (remember their run in the Carabao Cup) with a still impressive +12 goal difference in the league season. Both of these teams are capable of finding the back of the net, and what are expected to be warm and humid conditions should be offense friendly.

As well as their rather poor defensive efforts against Plymouth on Saturday, Burton have found it tough to keep things tight on their travels this season. Tuesdays visitors have conceded at least once in each of their six away games, while theyre conceding an average of two goals per match and an average of 2.05 expected goals, so its tough to say that theyve not deserved to concede a rather worrying total of twelve goals on the road.

The Brewers will be looking to draw on their positive recent results against both Sunderland and Barnsley, who like Portsmouth are in the top four and are going for automatic promotion, though their defensive efforts on those occasions suggest that they may just come up short. However, facing an in-form Portsmouth side, who come here off the back of a dominant performance will be tougher.
