Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth and Cambridge United square off against each other at Fratton Park in a highly-anticipated League One game. The Pompey aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Wigan and MK Dons, and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, it is no wonder the bookies see them as hot favourites to win Saturday’s clash. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be John Marquis, who is eager to put an end to his goalless run.
The U’s, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Cambridge United, and given Portsmouth’s fine home record, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Fratton Park Portsmouth defeated Cambridge United 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.

Cambridge United are an English football club that compete in League Two. The U’s play their home games at Abbey Stadium, the venue which was built back in 1923. Owned by Grosvenor Estates, Cambridge United’s home ground can hold up to 8,127 spectators.
The U’s wear amber and black jerseys and black shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and blue are the dominant colours of their away kit. Cambridge United won the FA Trophy in 2014, with the team making it to the FA Cup quarter-finals two times (1989/90, 1990/91). In the 1968-69 season, the U’s clinched the Southern League Cup title.
Cambridge United recorded their biggest league win in March 2007 as they outclassed Weymouth 7-0, and they repeated the success against Forest Green (2009) and Morecambe (2016). Peterborough United are regarded as the club’s main rivals, but they maintain rivalries with Northampton Town, Colchester United, Luton Town, Stevenage, and Histon as well.
