Stockport vs Mansfield: Top Free Betting Tips
As soon as the first day of the new year, Stockport already have to face the toughest rival in the league. This will be the best match in the upcoming round. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
What else can we expect from this fixture. We have the two best teams in the league and this match will probably decide if Mansfield will retain their chances for the title in League Two. At the same time, these two teams have two of the three best defenses in the league. This, however, means little when you have the two best teams. A simple look at the previous h2h games between them is enough. All five most recent fixtures between them ended with both teams scoring goals. Four of those games had at least three goals too.
Double Chance Prediction: Draw or Mansfield
We believe that this game will surprise us in many ways. Stockport have been absolutely unbelievable this season but their toughest match and defeat came against this exact opponent. Mansfield have not won as many games but no team has lost as few as them. They have a single defeat after 23 rounds, three less than Stockport. Their defense is the best in the league with only 19 conceded goals in 23 fixtures. Moreover, Mansfield haven't lost in seven consecutive fixtures against Stockport. Their record against this opponent is incredible.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
This is a difficult fixture and we may see a far higher scoreline than this. However, based on the fact that the two teams are incredible defensively and Mansfield will be desperate for a positive result, we believe that the 1-1 scoreline is the best option. The first match between them had five goals but that was a different scenario. When we compare the Stockport vs Mansfield line ups, we think that the home side is stronger in attack while the visitors are better defensively.
