Two of the most in-form teams clash at Portman Road on Tuesday when Ispwich and Portsmouth go head to head in the EFL Trophy. Both sides have not lost their last six games in all competitions, with Ipswich winning four of those games too. With these two sides spinning their trade in League One together, it also brings about a tough competition irrespective of form. What makes this game even more interesting is that Ipswich are second in the English third tier, and Portsmouth sit seventh on the points table, with a gap of just 12 points between them - making them two of the top League One sides this season. With the World Cup fever on, this Ipswich - Portsmouth tie is going to be a breath of fresh air on Tuesday late evening.

Ipswich Town vs Portsmouth Betting Tips - BTTS

Ipswich have not lost to Portsmouth in the last three meetings. But, the away side has managed to go unbeaten in their last seven games running, with 4 of these results ending in either a 0-0 or a 1-1 draw. It is highly likely that Portsmouth will score in this game as they have, against 5 of their last 6 opponents. We believe that this game will be tending towards a 1-1 draw till the most dying moments of the game, and may even go to extra time. Our best bet will thus be both sides scoring. One can even go for an Ipswich win as they have clearly been the better side in League One, but Portsmouth will be one of the toughest oppositions they will face, at this stage of the EFL Trophy.

Ipswich Town Team News

Ipswich is currently propelled totally by their impressive midfield, as three of their top four rated players are midfielders this season. Starting with Kyle Edwards, who has the most goal contributions (4) in the camp. But Edwards' dominance in this space also directly reflects the inability of the strikers to score or assist goals this year. Midfielder Leif Davis is another player to watch for, this Tuesday, as the creative outlet of this side. Davis creates an average of 3 chances per game in League One. Davis' other midfield compatriot, Greg Leigh, will be handling the defensive responsibilities for Ipswich. The ball winner intercepts four key passes of the opponents every game, which is the highest number in the league for players who have played more than 75% of all the available minutes.

Players to watch: Kyle Edwards, Leif Davis, Greg Leigh

Portsmouth Team News

Portsmouth has one of the worst goal conversion rates in League One, and still remains one of the top seven teams in the competition despite the poor statistic. It's hard to believe that their top scorer, Ronan Curtis, has two goals and assists this year from 19 games which makes Tuesday's visitors one of the worst-ever attacking teams in England. An even more interesting fact is that the team's two most creative players, Tom Lowery and Michael Jacobs have created an average of 6 chances per game, combined, and still the side has scored less than 1.5 goals per game. One cannot complain about their defending though as Portsmouth's first-choice defender, Keiron Freeman, is one of the best defenders in the league with 1.7 interceptions per 90 and 2 clearances every game in League One.

Players to watch: Tom Lowery, Michael Jacobs, Keiron Freeman
