Prediction: Burton Albion vs Oxford United – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Burton Albion will try their impressive record in the first round of the EFL Cup if you are welcome Oxford United on Wednesday evening in the Pirelli Stadium.

The Brewers have evolved from this stage for nine consecutive seasons and will appreciate their chances of extending this run against Oxford from League One.


Prediction for this match

Albion reached the semi-finals of this competition in 2018/19, where they were beaten 10-0 overall by Manchester City.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink won’t be looking that far ahead, of course, but Burton got a cheap opening game this season.

However, the Brewers lost both league games with Oxford last season by 9-1 aggregate, including a 5-1 defeat at the last time the teams met at Pirelli Stadium.

Hasselbaink’s side started their 2021-22 season with a 1-0 win at Shrewsbury Town on Saturday thanks John Brayford‘s strike played with half an hour.

Oxford United manager Karl Robinson is a busy man as of October 2018

Oxford were held 1-1 by Cambridge United in the opening game of the season Steve Seddon‘s strike in the first half is canceled by a Joe Ironside Penalty.

Burton will ultimately be happier with the way the opening weekend goes, but both managers will likely make changes for this midweek cup game.

Like Burton, Oxford has had recent experiences of going far in this competition as it made it to the quarter-finals in 2019-20.

Karl RobinsonThe main goal this season will be to fight for a playoff spot, but to win against Burton here and there is no reason why another cup run is not an option.

striker Kane Hemmings sustained an injury in the pre-season phase and will be out for Hasselbaink for the next three weeks.

Lucas Akins led the line against Shrewsbury and that should also be the case against Oxford.

Joe Powell and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson are among those fighting for recalls to the starting XI.

Burton Albion possible starting line-up:
Garratt; Brayford, Shaughnessy, Leck, Borthwick-Jackson; Morris, O’Connor; Smith, Powell, Patrick; Akins

Stevens; Forde, Moore, Thorniley, Seddon; Brannagan, Henry; Bodin, McGuane, Whyte; Winnall

Probability: Burton Albion 2-1 Oxford United

Much will depend on the strength of the two teams, but either way it will likely be a close fight at the Pirelli Stadium.

Oxford had the better of the two games last season, although we can see that change here as Albion advance to the second round again.
