📏 Form Guide

Rochdale LWWWLL

Rochdale will be hoping to bounce back here after the 0-2 EFL Cup defeat in their last game at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday.

In that game, Rochdale had 31% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Sheffield Wednesday had 25 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. Elias Kachunga (54') and Josh Windass (88') scored for Sheffield Wednesday.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Rochdale have shown defensive steel. The facts show that The Dale have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 10 goals along the way. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily follow through here, however.

Going into this contest, Rochdale have not beaten Portsmouth in their last 6 league matches.

Portsmouth DDDWDL

Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Brighton & Hove Albion in EFL Cup competition, Portsmouth will be hoping to turn things around here.

In that game, Portsmouth managed 38% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Brighton & Hove Albion got 23 shots at goal with 10 on target. Alexis Mac Allister (38'), Alireza Jahanbakhsh (54'), Bernardo (57') and Gyökeres (71') scored for Brighton & Hove Albion.

Kenny Jackett's Portsmouth have managed to stick the ball in the net 7 times in the course of their previous sextet of matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes equals 9.

Their prior results show that Portsmouth:

  • remain unbeaten by Rochdale when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
  • have not won away from home in their last 3 league matches.

↔️ Head to head

Delving into their past head to head meetings going back to 05/08/2017 shows that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Rochdale. They’ve not been able to come away with any victories at all while Portsmouth have been superior, finishing as winners in 83 per cent of those match-ups.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 23 in all at an average of 3.83 goals per match.

The last league encounter featuring the two was League One match day 36 on 28/02/2020 which ended up with the score at Portsmouth 3-0 Rochdale.

The match was refereed by Nick Kinseley.

💡 Prediction

For this match, we think that Rochdale have the ability to score against this Portsmouth outfit, but a single goal likely won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.

Our tip is for a narrow 1-2 winning margin for Portsmouth after the 90. There looks to be little in this one.
