      Analysis: Oxford United vs Blackburn Rovers (30 January 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: January 27 2016, 18:35 »

      Oxford United and Blackburn Rovers face at The Kassam Stadium, in a match for this stage of the Copa FA (4ta Ronda). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Oxford United registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

      Analysis of Oxford

      The home team comes to this stage of the Copa FA (4ta Ronda) after having played in the previous rounds against: Swansea City, Forest Green Rovers and Braintree Town. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Portsmouth by (0‑1). Oxford United has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches.

      In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 3 of the last 4 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 15 matches, but have been able to turn the score around in 2. there are 2 periods that stand out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 12 of their 33 goals between minutes (31'‑45'); they have suffered 6 of their 16 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

      Oxford comes to this match after a 0-1 away win over Portsmouth. The home team usually plays in a 4-4-2 formation, with Sercombe and Lundstram in the centre of the midfield. Taylor and Roofe should play in front and hopes lie on the aerial play quality of Roofe. Since they are facing a weaker team, they should play with close lines to avoid allowing spaces for Blackburn to explore.

      Analysis of Blackburn

      The away team comes to this stage of the Copa FA (4ta Ronda) after a away win by (1‑2) against Newport County. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 4 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 11 conceded. In their last match, for the Championship, they got an away tie against Charlton Athletic by (1‑1). In the last 10 away matches Blackburn Rovers has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Blackburn comes to this match after a 1-1 away draw against Charlton. Forward Chris Brown will not be able to help his teammates, since he has been suspended. Blackburn should play in the usual 4-4-2 formation, with Graham and Akpan in front and Chris Taylor organizing the team’s offensive moves. The away team usually takes advantage of set pieces, but they haven’t been very efficient in offense.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that Blackburn won’t win. Oxford comes from a lower division, but their home record is interesting. Moreover, Blackburn usually struggles in away matches.
