Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A place in the FA Cup round 2 will be at stake when Oxford United and Peterborough United face each other at Kassam Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Oxford United aim to build on the League One win over Rochdale, but the game against Peterborough will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Posh have been scoring goals for fun of late, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure automatic promotion to the Championship.
Since Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson is likely to mix the squad against Oxford United, we are not tempted to put our money on the visiting team. A close encounter is on the cards at Kassam Stadium, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. When the two teams met in the League One earlier this term Peterborough defeated Oxford 2-0.
