Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Kassam Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Oxford United and Exeter City. The Yellows desperately needed a win against Charlton Athletic, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their four-game winless run. Oxford United aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, and they are surely capable of matching the Grecians in front of home fans. Winger Yanic Wildschut has overcome his injury, and he is pushing for a start, while first-choice goalkeeper Simon Eastwood should continue to miss out with a calf issue.
Exeter City, on the other hand, proved their worth in a thrilling 4-3 win over Bristol Rovers, and seeing that they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach against Oxford United, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Gary Caldwell is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Pirates in midweek.
