Exeter vs Colchester Predictions
Colchester won the first leg 1-0 but that is only a very slender lead going into tonight’s crucial second leg, and Exeter will still fancy their chances of booking their place in the final. The winner in that match came in the 81st minute and we could be in for another low scoring match tonight.
Before the break, Exeter were in poor form and only scored five goals in their last five games before the halt was called. They didn’t win any of those five matches which caused them to fall away from the automatic promotion places.
Colchester won three of their last five but only lost once in 11. That run got them into the play-offs and now they hold the advantage going into tonight’s second leg.
The meetings between these sides in the League Two season proper both finished in draws (0-0 and 2-2) so I’m expecting another close match tonight. The last three meetings at St James Park have seen Exeter keep a clean sheet.
Another Low Scoring Match
Under 2.5 goals looks an obvious betting tip for this match tonight but the odds are unsurprisingly short, so instead I’m going to go with under 1.5 goals at odds of 17/10 with Unibet.
This would have won in the last two meetings between the sides and with fitness question marks and a lead for Colchester to defend following the first leg, it would be no surprise to see another low scoring meeting between these teams.
Matt Taylor will want his side to show more threat in front of goal given that Exeter are back on home soil but they will also need to avoid giving Colchester chances at the other end. It is a tough match to get right tactically for the home manager.
The best odds for under 1.5 goals in Exeter vs Colchester comes from Unibet and so we can use the Unibet welcome bonus that gives a £40 risk free first bet.

Exeter’s Home Form to Force Extra-time
Exeter have been reliant on their home form all season and they will be hopeful that the lack of a crowd is no burden. They are unbeaten at St James’ Park this season an despite that poor form before the break they did manage to avoid defeat on home soil, drawing against Crewe and Crawley.
Now they need a win more than ever at home and they could get exactly that. Colchester only had two shots in the whole of the first leg and they only won 6 of 19 away matches in the League Two season. Couple that with the home form of Exeter and it looks like a home win is on the cards for our betting tips tonight.
The last meeting between these two at St James Park was 0-0 but for tonight’s correct score prediction, I’m going for a 1-0 Exeter victory which would force extra-time and possibly penalties.
The best odds for Exeter to beat Colchester tonight are 6/1 at Bet Victor, and that means we can use the Bet Victor sign-up bonus to collect £30 in bonuses if you bet £5 or more on the Exeter vs Colchester match tonight.
