      Analysis: Oxford United vs Swansea City (10 January 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: January 07 2016, 21:30 »

      Oxford United and Swansea City meet at The Kassam Stadium, in a match for this stage of the Copa FA (3ra Ronda). There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 15‑04‑2005, the match ended with the final score: Swansea City (1‑0) Oxford United. Swansea City registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

      Analysis of Oxford

      The home team comes to this stage of the Copa FA (3ra Ronda) after having played in the previous rounds against: Forest Green Rovers and Braintree Town. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Notts County by (2‑4). Oxford United has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. there are 2 periods that stand out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 12 of their 31 goals between minutes (31'‑45'); they have suffered 6 of their 13 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

      Oxford comes motivated for this match after a victory away home, by 2-4, against Notts County. The home team usually adopts a tactical system in 4-4-2, allowing a more organized style of play, where the two most central players of the field are Sercombe and Lundstram. The English Roofe and Taylor make up the Oxford attack double, once that the first is excellent in deselecting, and the second one appears to be strong in the air play. To face an "enemy" of the first English level, it’s foreseeable that Oxford will opt to keep their lines well together, with the goal of not allowing the opponent to penetrate with danger in hazardous areas.

      Analysis of Swansea

      The team plays its first match in this edition of the Copa FA with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 17 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the Premier League, they got an away loss against Manchester United by (2‑1). In the last 10 away matches Swansea City has won 1, tied 2 and lost 7. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 2 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in all of those 2 matches and have held on to the lead in 1. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 12 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Swansea comes unmotivated for this match after a defeat away home, by 2-1, against Manchester United. The main weakness of the visiting team is the defensive dead balls. To note that Swansea shows to be ineffective in the finishing, once that they waste most danger opportunities that can create. In any case, they’re a team that can secure a positive result, so when they are winning they are able to defend that advantage. It’s foreseeable that the Swansea will attack, preferably, by the right flank, taking advantage of the depth offered by the lateral Naughton. The coach of "Swan" won’t count on Tabanou and Eder because they are injured. 

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match is that Swansea will win. It’s known that the visiting team plays away home, however, the coach of the "Swan" has almost all squad available. The experience and the individualities of Swansea can do all the difference in this match.
