Plymouth starts with a slight advantage in this second leg, because the result of the round, 2-2, when Matt Jamil scored a double in just ten minutes, aduncandu the team to present advantages 2-1 at the interval. Another plus that Plymouth has in the opponent today is placing at the end of the championship, finishing in 5th place with 81 points, having one of the best defenses, but also one of the best attacks in League Two .
On the other side, Portsmouth was ranked No. 6 in the regular season with 78 points, but as opponents in this duel, had one of the safest defensive and unaa of the most active offensive, scoring 75 times. Thus, the attack from Portsmouth and did his duty at least once in their last 11 official matches. In the first leg of the play-off’s, Barton and colleagues seemed to have the initiative after it had opened the score early as the 3rd minute through Marc McNulty, however, they were seen quickly forced to chase after leveling, which came in 51 minutes thanks to a penalty from 11m, perfectly transformed by Gary Roberts.
Hard to say who goes in the final play-off, however, because three matches were played between these two, this season being equal perfeta (1 win Plymouth, Portsmouth 1 win and a draw). However, the advantage of goals scored away, and at the home court must make its mark on the evolution of Plymouth, considering that the last eight duels direct, they scored at least one goal, unlike Portsmouth, who managed only six games to change the score. In conclusion, I think you are witnessing again the goals on both sides, perhaps after the break, when a team or another must come to the game.
