It was apparent that they did plan to focus too many efforts on the EFL Trophy but the team reached this round and will have a difficult fixture against Chelsea U21.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Chelsea U21 did not have many goals in their three games. The team did, however, have two games where both teams scored – 1:1 against Exeter and 1:2 against Bristol Rovers. Forest Green saw more action – 1:1 against Northampton, 2:2 against Brighton U21, and a win with 0:2 in the final round. We expect this match to also end in a draw but we expect to see goals. Chelsea U21 are not one of the stronger youth teams in the tournament but we know that they can score goals – they prove it against Exeter and Bristol. Forest Green are an incredible home team but as mentioned above, they do not play their strongest squad in the cup matches – so we expect Chelsea U21 to have enough chances to score.
Match Result – Draw
Both sides here had draws in two out of three games in the EFL Trophy. We expect a similar result in this particular game, as Chelsea are not one of the stronger teams in the tournament and will have a difficult time in those 90 minutes. We expect to see a goal from both teams but we expect Chelsea U21 to search for that draw at Full Time. Especially if Forest Green do not give their all in this fixture, like in the previous three, the draw is the most likely result.
Away Team Exact Goals – Chelsea U21 Exactly 1 Goal
This bet refers to goals during the regular 90 minutes. Since we expect this game to end in 1:1, this is a good alternative option for people that prefer safer markets. Chelsea scored more than one goal on just one occasion this year and that was against one of the weaker teams in League Two – Bristol. Forest Green are on another level and we do not expect them to concede more than 1 goal. They allowed that in just one game of the three against Brighton U21.
