Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Barrow on the road, Walsall will be aiming to return to winning ways in League Two when they host Cambridge United at their Bescot Stadium. The Saddlers aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail in the midweek clash. A man to watch in the home team will be Caolan Lavery, who scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Barrow.
Cambridge United, on the other hand, aim to overtake Newport in top position in the standings. Considering that the visitors are likely to go for a win in the Bescot Stadium clash as well, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier Walsall recorded a 2-1 win over Cambridge United.
Highlighted Team (Cambridge United):
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.
