Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United and MK Dons face each other at Kassam Stadium in what is expected to be a very exciting encounter. The Yellows have been struggling to find their form at the start of the season, but the midweek clash could be the turning point for the hosts, who are eyeing a place in the playoffs. Oxford United suffered a 2-0 loss at Peterborough at the weekend, but there were some positivities in their display in the Weston Homes Stadium showdown.
MK Dons, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Gillingham. The Dons finally gave fans something to cheer about, but they face a difficult task in Tuesday’s football match. A wounded lion is the most dangerous one, and given the importance of the match for the Yellows, we predict that MK Dons are going to return home empty-handed.
