## Reason For Burton Albion vs Portsmouth Betting Tips

Burton are another of the sides whose fans will be left thinking “if only we could’ve got going sooner”. Nigel Clough’s men have threatened to do well all season long and we’re now seeing that they’re a very capable side at this level. The Brewers come into this fixture unbeaten in five, four of which they’ve won. They’ve also lost just three of their last 16 League One matches.

Burton’s win over Scunthorpe last weekend was a comfortable one; the Brewers offered a good amount going forward, as they scored three goals, while they gave little away, keeping a clean sheet, conceding just one shot on target and just 0.41 expected goals.

However, facing an in-form Portsmouth side, who come here off the back of a dominant performance will be tougher. The Brewers will be looking to draw on their positive recent results against both Sunderland and Barnsley, who like Portsmouth are in the top four and are going for automatic promotion, though their defensive efforts on those occasions suggest that they may just come up short.

Nigel Clough’s men did hold Sunderland to a draw, though they couldn’t keep a clean sheet, while they shipped a reasonably worrying 1.79 expected goals. They also failed to shut out Barnsley, who clocked 1.83 expected goals for at this venue. Fortunately, the Brewers offered plenty going forward against the Tykes, as they scored three goals and clocked an impressive 2.08 expected goals for. The fact that they benefitted from the counter-attack on that occasion bodes well ahead of a match against a Portsmouth side that will get forward.

Friday’s hosts are a team in form, though Portsmouth, who tore Rochdale to pieces last Saturday, will fancy themselves do well at Pirelli Stadium. Kenny Jackett’s visitors have looked like a very dangerous side of late, as they’ve won each of their last five, scoring an impressive 14 goals in the process. They’ve also posted recent expected goals for figures such as 3.43, 2.18 and 1.99.

The only negative for Portsmouth is that they’ve tended to be caught out a bit on the break of late, which suggests that they could struggle to contain Friday’s hosts, who’ve proven to be somewhat deadly when allowed space to break into.

In summary, it’s fair to say that both Burton and Portsmouth have been thriving in the final third of late, while both have shown a few defensive weaknesses. Keeping this in mind, ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ stands out. Given the fact that the Brewers, who’ve scored an average of 3.2 goals in their last five, and Pompey, who’ve notched an average of 2.8 in their last five, have both excelled going forward of late, a relatively high-scoring game may just be a tad more likely than the current price suggests.

For the same reason, ‘Over 3.5 Goals’ may also be worth a dabble. There really has been no shortage of both chances and goals at both ends of the pitch when Burton and Pompey have been involved in recent weeks. The pair have averaged a combined 4.23 expected goals for in their last five, so goals really are easy to fancy ahead of Friday’s clash.
