Bradford and Bury Meet Again in an English Cup MatchPublished October 4, 2016 by Florin P
League 1 teams square off in the EFL Trophy (7:45 p.m UK Time).
The EFL Trophy is a competition that presents smaller English teams with a chance to win a valuable trophy. Bradford is credited with the first chance to emerge victorious this year and Bet365 Sports offers odds of 16/1 to those ready to make this bet. Their fans are happy with both the value and the manner in which the team started the campaign. However, the first serious test is this match against Bury.
Two League 1 Teams on Deck
Bradford and Bury are currently playing in the third English division and both of them have high expectations for this season. After 10 rounds they are within striking distance of Sounthorpe and are entitled to hope for promotion mid-2017. Their performance in the EFL Trophy so far meets the expectations of their fans as both of them won the opening match with relative ease.
Impressive Winning Streaks for Both Clubs
Bradford is undefeated in the last 10 games, but half those fixtures ended inconclusively. The defense is their strong suit and during this impressive run they didn’t concede more than one goal in any match. The problem is that offensively they don’t have too many options and rely on two strikers to score each time. Clarke and Mayifuila are their top scorers and the ones to spearhead the offensive against Bury.
Their opponents are also riding a hot streak with six consecutive games. Bury’s obvious problem is that despite winning all these games they found it impossible to keep clean sheets in any of these fixtures. That’s why the top priority ahead of this match is to bolster defenses and prevent the hosts from scoring a goal. A draw would help both teams to advance from the group stage and that’s what they’ll be aiming for. That’s why, punters should bet on fewer than 2.5 goals to be scored at even odds at Bet365 sports.
