Forest Green vs Shrewsbury Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Forest Green vs Shrewsbury will be a curious game between two familiar teams. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

Both teams are now out of the bigger cup tournament – the EFL Cup, after losing in their first round games. So, this is their only chance for a trophy outside the actual leagues. We expect the teams to be motivated for a better performance in this game, so we expect goals. The teams were in the same league last season before Forest Green got relegated and they played two very interesting games, that went in favor of Shrewsbury.

Match Result Prediction: Shrewsbury to Win

On paper, Shrewsbury should be the stronger side right now and we think that they have a better chance to win. Forest Green not only got relegated to League Two last season but they have also not done well in the new season, so their form remains as bad. Shrewsbury beat them twice last season and we think that the team will have more chances in this match. Overall, it is a difficult game to predict and we recommend skipping this market if you hate risks.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Shrewsbury

We expect the visitors to win this game but it should still be quite close. This is a cup game and both teams will give us their best performance, even if they play with different squads than usual. When we compare the Forest Green vs Shrewsbury line ups, we think that the visitors should have a minimal advantage in strength, on paper.

Forest Green vs Shrewsbury Team Previews

Forest Green Preview

Forest Green spent a season in League One and got relegated immediately. And they seem to be in a bad place right now. They haven't got any chemistry and already don't look like a possible contender for promotion again. Their defense is one of the worst in the league. Even more problematic, their attack is one of the three weakest in the league too.

Shrewsbury Preview

Shrewsbury have had an interesting start to the season which includes alternating between wins and defeats. Their attack is one of the weakest in League One right now, which is an immediate problem that will affect them in the future. Their defense is not bad but they struggle on the road in the league.
