Oxford United Preview – Can the Yellows stun the Eagles?

Promotion to the EFL Championship is Oxford United’s ultimate ambition right now. The U’s have gone close over the past few years, but can Karl Robinson finally get them over the line this term?

United have made a poor start to their 2022-23 League One campaign. The Yellows have picked up just one win and have already been beaten three times. They did avoid a third straight league loss last time out, drawing 1-1 at home with Morecambe.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1717 GMT, Monday 22 August)

Oxford beat Championship side Swansea City in round two. United came from two goals down to take the tie to penalties, eventually beating the Swans 5-3 on spot kicks. Can Robinson’s boys pull off another shock in the EFL Cup this Tuesday night?

Crystal Palace Preview – Premier League team to ease into round three?

Crystal Palace had a tough start to their 2022-23 season, losing 2-0 at home to Mikel Arteta’s rampant Arsenal side. However, they have bounced back in style by taking four points from their next two.

The Eagles held Liverpool to a draw at Anfield on matchday two. They then picked up their first win of the campaign last time out, easing past Aston Villa at Selhurst Park. The excellent Wilfried Zaha helped himself to a brace, and Jean-Philippe Mateta was on target against Steven Gerrard’s men.
