Reason For Oxford United vs Wycombe Predictions

  • Oxford lost only three of the eight games they played against top-seven opposition in League One this term.
  • Both teams have scored in only 16 of Oxford’s 35 league contests this season. 
  • Wycombe have failed to score in seven of their nine league defeats in 2019/20.

Battle-hardened Oxford ready to fight

Oxford United were taken all the way to penalties by Portsmouth in their two-legged playoff semi-final but are in the final on merit and can gain promotion at the expense of Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley.

After an attritional 210-minute battle with Pompey, Karl Robinson’s men finally came out on top on spot-kicks and are looking to return to England’s second tier for the first time since 1999.

They were arguably the better side in the second leg of their semi-final with Portsmouth, seeing more of the ball and winning the shot count 18-13 against a side many expected to gain automatic promotion at the start of the season.

But defying expectations has been commonplace in Oxford’s 2019/20 campaign, in which they have shown they can rise to the occasion when the pressure is on.

United have impressed against league’s elite

They claimed the scalps of fellow highflyers Rotherham, Peterborough and final opponents Wycombe during the regular season, as well as holding Coventry and Portsmouth to stalemates.

Anyone unsure of how United have advanced to being one game away from Championship football need only look at the table and see their goal difference of +24 was greater than promoted pair Coventry and Rotherham and bettered only by Peterborough (+28) in seventh.

Their tally of 61 goals scored is among the highest in the league and, although they lost Tariqe Fosu earlier this year, they still have two dangerous attacking outlets in Matty Taylor and James Henry.

Inconsistency could haunt the Chairboys

Wycombe too demonstrated they have goals in abundance with their 6-3 aggregate victory over Fleetwood Town in the playoff semi-finals but also showed defensive vulnerability across the two legs.

The Chairboys were in fact outside of the playoff positions when the season was postponed but rocketed up to third thanks to the points-per-game system used to determine the final standings.

They have, however, won the same number of matches as Oxford this season and there’s little disputing they deserve to be in the mix.

But while Oxford have enjoyed a strong 2020, winning their last five regular season fixtures, Wycombe have looked too inconsistent of late, winning back-to-back games only once since November.

They were falling off the pace in the league before the season was stopped, losing to Sunderland, Peterborough, MK Dons, Fleetwood and Doncaster since the turn of the year.

With that in mind, Oxford look the best match prediction and, in terms of a correct score prediction, punters should anticipate. a low-scoring contest.

Only 13 of Wycombe’s 34 league matches this term featured over 2.5 goals and, given they have lost by a 2-0 scoreline three times in the league this season, that could be the way to go.
