Oxford vs Blackpool Predictions


Oxford and Blackpool come into the playoffs as the two in-form teams in League One. Oxford have been free-scoring, and their impressive recent home record could give them a narrow edge against a resilient Blackpool.

I am tipping an Oxford win in the first leg.

  • Oxford have won 6 of their last 7 matches (League One)
  • Oxford have won their last 4 home matches (League One)
  • Oxford have won 3 of their last 4 home matches against Blackpool (League One)

Head-to-Head


Blackpool have a 16-11 advantage against Oxford in 35 meetings with eight draws. 

Oxford Form 


Oxford ended the League One season with three consecutive wins. The Us secured their playoff place on goal difference following a 4-0 home win against Burton Albion on the final day of the season. 

Goals from Olamide Shodipo and Matty Taylor gave Oxford an early lead before Elliott Lee and Sam Winnall scored in the second half. The Us dominated the match with 58% possession and 15 shots. 

The U's won six of their last seven matches of the season and scored 24 goals and recorded big wins over Crewe (6-0), Shrewsbury (4-1) before the 4-0 final day win against Burton. 

Oxford’s emphatic finish to the season capped an impressive turnaround for Karl Robinson’s side. The Us began the season with seven losses from their first 10 matches and solid form later in the season saw them finish in sixth place.

Oxford Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Marcus McGuane is ruled out with a thigh injury. 

Blackpool Form


Blackpool ended their League One campaign in fine form, winning their last four matches without conceding.

Neil Critchley’s side finished the season with a 1-0 home win against Bristol Rovers, securing a third-place finish in League One.

Blackpool created the better chances with 14 shots and 52% possession and Elliot Simms secured all three points for the Tangerines with a second-half strike.

The win was Blackpool’s second consecutive away win in League One following a 1-0 win against Sunderland. Critchley’s side had previously dropped points in a 2-2 draw away at Lincoln and 1-0 defeat at relegated Rochdale.

Verdict

Oxford are in excellent home form and scored a lot of goals. They should have enough to break down Blackpool, who had some poor away results late in the season.

I am backing a first-leg win for the U's.
