MK Dons – Ipswich Match Prediction | 17-09-2019 14:45

Like Saturdays hosts, Posh, whove conceded in three out of four, shipping six goals in total, havent looked great at the back, but their recent attacking efforts are positive ahead of a match against a Dons side that has given plenty away of late. Darren Fergusons men showed that theyve got what it takes to hurt teams when scoring twice against Ipswich last weekend, while they continued to look useful in the final third on Tuesday evening, as they notched twice on route to victory against Southend, creating 1.59 expected goals for in the process.

Despite outplaying Sunderland just over a week ago, Ipswich conceded, while they shipped twice against Peterborough last time out. In truth, its been a bit of a mixed start for the side that came into the campaign as title favourites; theyve certainly not been poor, but their attacking efforts have been a bit subdued, while they seem to be developing a habit of conceding goals when on top.

Having won each of their first two home matches, Paul Tisdales men will fancy themselves to get the better of Peterborough, who come into this game of the back of their first win of the season, on Saturday. After the heartbreak of losing late on at the weekend, MK Dons made a winning return to their own patch, as they got the better of a Lincoln side that had won three out of three.

They conceded three goals against Wycombe last weekend, shipping 1.71 expected goals in the process, while they were once again breached on Tuesday, surrendering a rather hefty 2.36 expected goals for. Such numbers dont exactly bode well. While theyve looked good going forward, the Dons have struggled to keep teams at bay. However, an increase in attacking productivity has come at a price.

Try as they did, promotion-favourites Ipswich were unable to register their second win of the season last time out, though as they found themselves a goal down late on, a share of the spoils probably wont have disappointed boss Paul Lambert too much. Wimbledon, who got their first point on Saturday, go to Portman Road in search of their first win of the campaign.

Going forward, the Tractor Boys were the better team, as they posted 1.53 expected goals for and took 16 shots, no less than eight of which hit the target. Despite scoring as early as the 4th minute, Ipswich could only draw at the weekend, though if we examine their efforts closely, its easy to feel that theres positives to take. In contrast, Lamberts men conceded 0.91 expected goals, though they didnt exactly restrict Peterborough, as they surrendered 11 shots, seven of which tested keeper Tomas Holy.

It is a big pitch, we will be coming up against a formation that we have yet to face this season and they are a good side, but we know that if we reach the levels we can, then we will be okay. We will be backed by a good crowd, we always are at MK and it is a game that we are all looking forward too, Ferguson said.

In the betting, given the recent performances of both, Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score stands out as viable option. MK Dons, whore coming off the back of scoring four goals in two games, posting a combined 5.18 expected goals for, have shown more than enough to suggest that they can hurt the visitors, but their rather shaky defensive efforts point towards Peterborough also enjoying themselves in the final third, so much so that the price on offer appears to suggest that a high-scoring games is less likely than several indicators.

Not only did they struggle to make offensive headway, but they allowed their opponents to create more than them for the third match in a row. For the first time this term, Wally Downes men dictated the play by seeing more of the ball, but they failed to create many clear-cut opportunities, as an expected goals figure of 0.44 suggests. Wimbledon picked up their first point of the campaign on Saturday, but they were once again poor.
