This has to be one of the most lopsided rivalries in the EFL Trophy. Chelsea U21 have won four straight games against Peterborough as part of a 17-match winning streak against their top-flight neighbors. Their coaching staff is also not in the best of shape going into this game, having lost seven times in eight league games.
When Peterborough played in the EFL Trophy, they rarely played a game that ended in a goalless draw. In their previous 20 games, they had only lost one game without scoring. The situation has been similar for Chelsea U21, who has now played in 23 consecutive league games in which at least one goal has been scored.
Chelsea U21 has been involved in a total of 13 games in which they have scored and conceded in the same 90 minutes over the course of their last 14 games at the top of the EFL Trophy. More of the same is anticipated in this matchup considering that Peterborough has been involved in seven of the previous nine top-flight matches.
Let’s sum up everything that’s been said. It is evident that teams do not intend to simply award points to their rival. Additionally, football fans gain nothing from this. We analyzed a large number of club statistics and prepared an intriguing betting option in order to make the match more interesting to watch: Tk such matches are full of intrigue and unexpected outcomes.
Bet: Total Over(3)
Peterborough overcame Wycombe Wanderers in their final group stage match with an 83rd-minute equalizer, clinching second place in the group based on goal difference. Peterborough is currently in Grant McCann’s third season as manager, and consistency from one game to the next has been a problem recently, with the team not winning consecutive games since late October.
This team has consistently competed for the League One title, finishing in the top seven or higher over the past four domestic seasons, despite those recent inconsistencies. They have scored the fourth most goals in League One this season, which has helped them finish fourth in the domestic table. Their quality in the attacking third has allowed them to do so.
In Peterborough’s 17 league home matches, the deadlock has been broken at some point, so maintaining consistency has not been particularly challenging. It would be surprising if these teams did not score at least two goals, as only one of the previous 20 Chelsea U21 away games at this level ended scorelessly.
