Oxford United 8/5 to beat Forest Green in Tuesday’s FA Cup tie
Competition: FA Cup
Market: Oxford United win
Odds: 8/5 @ Bet 365
Two sides who are looking to book their spot in the second round of the FA Cup, Oxford United will travel to The New Lawn on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, despite a stable start to the season saw Forest Green briefly flirt with the playoff positions in League Two, they’re currently enduring a very difficult run of form. The Rovers have now failed to win any of their last four matches across all competitions and have lost three of those outings. Along with failing to now score in their last two matches, Forest Green have drastically struggled defensively. Tuesday’s hosts have now managed to record just one clean sheet in their last 12 appearances.
As for the visitors, while it was a difficult start to the season for Oxford United, they are enjoying an impressive recent run of form. Climbing out of the relegation zone in League One, Oxford are now unbeaten in their last eight matches across all competitions. Entering Tuesday’s FA Cup tie as the favorite, it has been their defensive record that has made the most improvements. Along with now averaging two goals per match over the past month, they have now kept a clean sheet in four of their last five matches.
