Both Teams To Score – No
As mentioned above, we have the best against one of the worst in the league. Forest Green have been extremely dominant this season and this performance should continue in this fixture against Colchester. It is obvious that we expect the hosts to score even more than once but we do not expect them to concede against this weak opponent. Forest Green have conceded just 9 goals in 11 home games this season while the visitors have scored only 7 times in their 11 away games. In fact, they only scored in 4 of their games.
Match Result – Forest Green
The favorite for this fixture is clear – Forest Green should win the three points without serious difficulties. And the odds are surprisingly high given the form of the visitors. Here are some statistics – Forest Green lost just 2 matches since the start of the season and they were at home. Yet, these losses happened against direct contenders for the ‘title'. Colchester are far from this level and we do not see how it will happen here. The team has won just 2 games away from home this season and those were against two of the weakest teams.
Team Total Goals – Forest Green Over 1.5
Our third and final prediction for this game is for Forest Green to score more than 1 goal in this match. It should be quite obvious at this point that the hosts will dominate this match and that there is a massive difference in class. Forest Green have scored 18 goals in 11 home games this season – not the most impressive stat but they scored twice in almost all games they won this season. Colchester, on the other side, conceded 16 goals in 11 away games.
