Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
There will be fireworks when Ipswich Town and Portsmouth face each other at Portman Road in the FA Cup round 1 derby. The Tractor Boys continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their sixth consecutive win on home soil in all competitions. The Pompey, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Lincoln City.
Portsmouth are one of the teams to beat in the League One, but defeating Ipswich at Portman Road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards in Saturday’s FA Cup game, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. This will be the first meeting between the two teams in the 2020/21 season as they have yet to face each other in the League One.
