Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cambridge United and Carlisle United go head to head at Abbey Stadium on the opening day of the season in what is expected to be a very exciting encounter. Cambridge United’s main goal for the upcoming season is to secure the League Two survival, and, no doubt, the visitors will give their best to avoid relegation to National League as well. The hosts did well to beat the odds in their EFL Cup opener, with the team eliminating Championship side Birmingham City in round 1.
The U’s aim kick off their League Two campaign in great manner as well, but Saturday’s football match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be summer signing Joe Ironside, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. The visitors, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Oldham in the first round of the Carabao Cup. Since Carlisle United struggled at the back in preseason as well, home win should be considered.
