The absolute best meet one of the more ‘average' contenders for promotion – Port Vale meet Forest Green in a match from the 26th round of League Two.
Port Vale vs Forest Green: Top Free Betting Tips
There are few words that could describe Forest Green's performance this season – the team would have certainly been among the top sides even in League One. Port Vale, in turn, spent most of the season near the top but their accumulation of losses recently put them right below the promotion zone.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
There is no doubt that there is a small difference in class between these two teams and the favorite here is obvious. Forest Green have been scoring loads of goals against almost all opponents in the league, no matter their position or form. Most recently, they won 0:4 against Tranmere, the second-strongest side in League Two. We expect a goal from Port Vale and at least two from the visitors, perhaps even more given that Port Vale have not been at their best.
Match Result – Forest Green
Surprisingly, one of the two losses of Forest Green occurred against this exact opponent – Port Vale won 0:2 in August. In this match, however, we expect quite the opposite result at full time. Port Vale lost three of their last 5 home games in the league and it is apparent that they are not at their best form. Forest Green, in turn, are the only team that has not yet lost a match on the road – they won 8 and had 5 draws next to 0 losses. There is a chance for a draw here but we believe that Forest Green will revenge their previous loss against this opponent and snatch the three points.
Team Total Goals – Forest Green Over 1.5
Forest Green have scored 9 goals more than any other team in the league – it is astonishing. And their performance away from home have been much more impressive than those at home. Forest Green have scored 32 goals in just 13 games on the road this season. Port Vale were once the strongest home team in the earlier stages of the season but recently, they have been losing and conceding a considerable number of goals. We believe that Forest Green will not have serious difficulties in scoring two goals – they did it against most teams in the league already.
