Cambridge United Preview – Can the U’s shock the Premier League Saints?

Mark Bonner’s Cambridge United have made a decent start to their season, winning three, losing two and drawing one of their opening six league and cup fixtures. In the league, they have taken seven points from a possible 15.

Cambridge have already caused an upset in the EFL Cup this term, edging past Championship Millwall at Abbey Stadium earlier in the month. It was a tight cup tie, with Liam O’Neill’s goal on the hour mark proving to be the difference.

Southampton to win both halves

(odds taken 1249 GMT, Monday 22 August)

Cambridge will enjoy the occasion on Tuesday, but can they secure a home win in the cup? The bookies are offering 7/1 for a United success.

Southampton Preview – Hasenhuttl’s troops to book place in round three?

Southampton are one of the most unpredictable sides in the Premier League these days, and Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have had a mixed start to their 2022-23 season. Before this weekend’s home match with Manchester United, the Saints are sitting on four points from a possible nine.

They opened the scoring against Tottenham Hotspur but fell to a 4-1 away defeat in game one. The Saints then bounced back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home with Leeds United on matchday two. They picked up their first victory last time out, coming from behind to win 2-1 at Leicester City.

  • Cambridge got the better of Championship Millwall in the previous round
  • Southampton have taken four points from their last two PL games
  • This will be the first ever meeting between the two clubs


Cambridge have made a solid start to their campaign and beat Millwall in round one, but Southampton should be too strong for the U’s at Abbey Stadium. We fancy the away team to prevail by a margin, and there is good value in 10/11 for the Saints to win -1.

Che Adams was Southampton’s hero at the weekend, netting both goals in the comeback win at Leicester. The Scotland international is available at 13/10 to net anytime in this one.
