FIFA 20 Verdict: Peterborough United (Away)


By Pete H

Oh baby, it’s cold outside. That’s why we’re basking in the warm glow of the PS4 Pro to get the FIFA 20 take on who might win this cup replay. It’s Posh, part deux for us – with Marcus Maddison’s long-range chancer the reason why we’re not knee-deep in prep for the second round. After missing the trick of springing a little shock in the first tie, the form says there’ll be blue shirts playing the white shirts of Dover. But will there actually?


FIFA 20 Verdict: Posh v Boro’

With no call to change our one-star FIFA 20 rating based on the fact we haven’t kicked a ball in over a week now, we yet again expect an onslaught from the AI. Of course, this is always as long as the game engine ain’t in a silly bollards mood. And, on this occasion, it wasn’t. Well, not quite. Let’s just say we had enough chances to win it… and didn’t. But it was a tough pick with the guys we’re expecting to be missing.

What odds on fiction becoming fact?
For 2-1 to be the correct score in this one, you’re currently looking at 8s (BetVictor). Other punts of interest are Posh to be winning at half time (10/11, multiple); Marcus Maddison as your first goalscorer (11/2, Bet365) and Posh to be one-up at the break (5/2, multiple).
