Exeter have not had too much luck against Chelsea U21 of late, with the Exeter emerging victorious from just very few of the last 17 competitive meetings between the two sides. Unfortunately for the Chelsea U21 outfit, come into this contest in fantastic form, with their coach charges boasting eight wins from ten games recently.
You have to go back to great loss last year to find the last time that Exeter were involved in a home game containing over 3.5 goals, with the run currently standing at 42 matches. Chelsea U21 cannot compete with these numbers, but the EFL Trophy have been involved in 17 away matches on the spin featuring under 3.5 goals.
Over the course of their last 15 away matches in the EFL Trophy, Chelsea U21 have been involved in just a couple of contests in which they have both scored and conceded during the same 91 minutes. Not only that, but at least one of the two goalkeepers has emerged with a clean sheet from each of the most recent six Exeter home games at this level as well.
Exeter vs Chelsea U21 Prediction
Few people expected Exeter to be battling against relegation, but that is the reality facing a team that has suffered ten defeats in 11 games recently, not to mention the fact that they have triumphed only once at home all season. For their part, title-chasing Chelsea U21 have recorded seven victories in their most recent ten EFL Trophy matches.
