Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Portman Road when the two former Premier League clubs face each other in the opening game of the season. The Tractor Boys impressed in the League Cup round 1, with the team rolling over Bristol Rovers 3-0, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Wigan. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Freddie Sears, who scored a brace in the EFL Cup opener.
The Latics, on the other hand, are widely expected to fight for a place in the League One playoffs in the upcoming season. However, away win should not be considered as Ipswich Town have turned their Portman Road into a real fortress. In their last encounter in a competitive match the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, and the history is going to repeat itself.
