Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

We have two completely opposing teams when it comes to stats but we see this market as the best option to choose for this fixture. Scunthorpe are one of the teams that have had the most goals this season and while their defense is extremely bad, their attack definitely can punish any defense at least once per game, possibly more. Southend have had BTTS in 3/5 recent games while Scunthorpe had it in 4/5 most recent games.

Match Result Prediction: Southend To Win

We expect this to be an extremely competitive match that will end in either a draw or a minimal win for the home team. Scunthorpe have not lost a lot lately but their away performances are definitely not good while Southend have been quite good at home, in particular. Scunthorpe do not have a win on the road this season in either competition and they mostly faced weak opposition, so this should speak enough.

Correct Score Prediction: 2:1 to Southend

We think that there is no other alternative than a minimal win for Southend in this game – could be a 1:0, 2:1, 3:2, but we think that the 2:1 is highly possible. Scunthorpe have definitely been scoring goals and we expect them to find the net at least once. However, their defense is bad enough to concede multiple times against any opponent, especially on the road.

Southend vs Scunthorpe: Form, Recent Games, and News

Southend Preview

Southend are in the same position we were used to seeing them in the past few campaigns – around the middle of the table. The team does not have what it takes to contest for the top but they are good enough to cause problems for the better teams in most games. The main problem is the weak attack – they simply do not or cannot score a lot of goals while their defense is one of the best in the league right now.

Scunthorpe Preview

Who would have thought that the problems at Scunthorpe run so deep that the team would be the weakest even in the National League. There is no point in talking about the League Two campaign last season – they conceded nearly 100 goals and won 3-4 games in the entire season. But going from last in L2 to one of the last teams in the National League is a disaster and Scunthorpe need an immediate improvement.
