Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A spot in the FA Cup round 3 will be at stake when Coventry City and Ipswich Town face each other at St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Sky Blues are on a quest to return to the Championship, but they have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 FA Cup campaign as well. Coventry City defeated Colchester United 2-0 in their opener, but Ipswich Town are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals.
The Tractor Boys, on the other hand, made a flying start to the new League One campaign, with the team sitting in second place in the standings ahead of the trip to Coventry. Anyhow, the two sides seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw.
