Derby vs Ipswich Prediction & Betting tips
Derby County has started the season disappointing. Despite the high expectations around the club, manager Frank Lampard does not know how to forge a winning team. Ipswich Town is even without victory with two points from three games. And this while it played twice against a PhD student. Both teams that are looking for form and trust meet at Pride Park!
Derby County has started the season disappointing. It won (2-1) the opening match at Reading, but in the subsequent games against Leeds United (1-4) and Millwall (1-2) it was especially the weak defensive work. In addition, Derby gave away a lot of space in all competitions. The lines did not match well and especially in the home match against Leeds the opponent could attack to their heart’s content.
Last Saturday there was a new defeat against Millwall. A defeat that manager Frank Lampard could hardly live with: “The first goal is due to a mistake by one of our defenders. The second goal is a dead game moment. Here Millwall hopes and we were in the first half not able to play the ball a few times to each other. In the second half we combined more easily and we score the tie goal (2-1) fifteen minutes before time. In the absolute final phase, you hope that the ball will go well again, but we did not have that luck today. ”
Meanwhile, a Reading scenario is threatening for Derby County. For example, Reading was still a participant in the playoffs in the 2016-2017 season, but fought against relegation last year. Derby also played in the play-offs last year, but is now just a gray middle-driver.
The two points that Ipswich Town has achieved are far too little when you look at the displayed game. In the opening game of the season it barely saved a run in the extra time against Blackburn Rovers (2-2), but the loss at Rotherham (1-0) was very much flattered. Last weekend, on the other hand, it did stand up to Aston Villa. Ipswich played a long time with ten men after sending away Tayo Edun.
Manager Paul Hurst was a satisfied man afterwards: “My players really played as guys and fought as soldiers. It was already a challenge to play with eleven men against Aston Villa. With ten men and that fifty minutes perseverance is absolutely fantastic. I think we have kept up perfectly. Villa did not create many big opportunities in the second half and with us the confidence increased by the minute. ‘
Yet it is also time for Ipswich to take points. A point at home against Aston Villa is an excellent result, but the draw against Blackburn Rovers and the loss at Rotherham United do not predict good for the future.
