Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Abbey Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Cambridge United and Morecambe. The U’s have been struggling in recent festive fixtures. Following a 3-2 loss to Leyton Orient, the team suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat at Swindon Town on Boxing Day. Cambridge United are eager to give fans something to cheer about, and they will not have a better chance to do so.
The U’s play host to Morecambe, who sit in the relegation zone in the League Two standings ahead of Matchday 24. The Shrimps were beaten by Oldham Athletic in the Boxing Day clash, with the team once again experiencing all sorts of problems at the back. Morecambe are on a four-game winless in the English fourth tier, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Cambridge United’s party at Abbey Stadium. Cambridge are after their first win over Morecambe since 2016 when they crushed the Shrimps 7-0.
