Luton vs Peterborough prediction on August 07, 2021. Luton Town is playing at home in the first round of Championship 2021/22, their goal is nothing but victory to have a really smooth start. However, that goal is not easy even though Luton Town only has to welcome rookie Peterborough United.
Luton Town had a Championship season 2020/21 that is said to be extremely successful when they were able to finish in the middle of the table and, importantly, no longer have to fight for the goal of relegation like previous seasons.
This is a huge step forward for a team that does not have the financial strength like Luton Town and it promises to be just the first step in this team’s journey to raise the bar. Luton Town’s attack is playing quite well, but their defense also received a lot of goals.
Peterborough United will be the rookie of the Championship 2021/22 after a successful previous season in League One 2020/21. As a newcomer, Peterborough United clearly needs to be as prepared as possible to avoid the risk of being overwhelmed in the second-highest playing field.
And the most obvious manifestation of that is the fact that Peterborough United has continuously played 7 friendlies over the past 1 month and has partly shown its readiness. What has just been shown Peterborough United shows that they will not bore anyone.
Asian Bet – Luton vs Peterborough prediction
Luton’s home form proved to be reliable, after 23 matches bringing 8 wins but only 6 defeats. They also have an impressive momentum with 4 victories in the friendly series. In the opposite direction, the guests have just received a 0-2 defeat on the field of the lower division Portsmouth. The competition lacks vitality, the risk of Peterborough facing the relegation battle is very clear. Too many advantages, victory is completely within Luton’s reach.

Over/Under Bet – Luton vs Peterborough prediction
Excellently won the 2nd place runner-up last season with a direct promotion ticket, Peterborough had the first time in the history of the Championship.
However, staying is also an extremely difficult task for coach Ferguson’s men because of almost no experience. The defensive playstyle is quite pragmatic, but it lacks damage and is easily caught.
Poor scoring ability showed in the last 2 matches, Peterborough only had 1 goal. The 0-2 defeat on the field of Portsmouth also shows that the quality of the squad is very limited. It is not surprising if Peterborough prioritized the defensive front and aimed for 1 point on an opening day.

Luton: Sluga, Onyedinma, Bree, Naismith, Potts, Rea, Campbell, Cornick, Mvumbi, Osho, Adebayo.
Peterborough: Cornell, Hamilton, Jones, Barker, Bojang, Darlington, Edwards, Fernandez, Knight, Mensah, Tomlinson.
