Full Time Result – Hartlepool
Hartlepool is the strongest home team in League Two. After 7 rounds, they have not lost a single match at home and are literal goal machines for this level of English football. Everton's U21 formation did not participate in last year's edition of the tournament and it is quite obvious that their line up is not made of players that are used to playing together. They scored a win in the first round but we believe that they do not stand a chance against Hartlepool at home.
Team Total Goals – Hartlepool Over 1.5
Hartlepool have been spectacular at home, as we already explained – not a single loss since the start of the season (apart from their match against Crewe for the EFL Cup). In more than half of their matches, they have scored 2 or more goals. Everton U21 is not a spectacular youth formation, definitely not among the strong examples. Last round, they lost 2:0 to Carlisle, another team from League Two but also one of the weakest there. Hartlepool are on a completely different level and we expect them to win with several goals scored.
Team To Score in Half – Hartlepool in 2nd Half (Yes)
Hartlepool is a team that plays better after the break. It is something we have seen in most of their matches and thus, almost all of their goals this season have been scored in the second half. We expect them to score at least once after the break and the odds, although quite low, are good enough for a high stake.
