OverviewThese two first came face-to-face in the 1968/69 season. Both were in the Second Division, and it was Portsmouth who tasted success in their initial meeting with a 3-0 triumph. Pompey enjoyed early dominance in this fixture. Indeed, they won eight of their first 11 meetings with Oxford United, losing just one.
However, The U’s have managed some victories of their own since then and the overall head-to-head is fairly even. Two of the biggest matches between these two came in 2020, as they contested a two-legged League One play-off semi-final. Both games finished as 1-1 draws, but it was Oxford who held their nerve to win on penalties, eventually losing to another rival of theirs, Wycombe Wanderers, in the final at Wembley.
