Exeter Sheff Wed betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

This game has all the requirements to be quite open and with several opportunities for goals, since the two teams have several flaws in the further back sector. Even so, and even playing away from home, Sheffield Wednesday should act in a more offensive way, since Exeter City has a very fast attack, being very likely to be able to score some goals. That said, we believe that betting in favor of the "Over 2 Goals" market is a good option.

Analysis Exeter

The home team comes to this stage of the FA Cup (3rd Round) after having played in the previous rounds against: Gillingham and Fylde. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 28 goals scored and 27 conceded; against 10 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses at their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the League Two, they got a home tie against Forest Green Rovers by (1‑1). In the last 10 home matches Exeter City has won 6, tied 1 and lost 3. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 23 of the last 25 have ended with Over 1,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 7 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 2.

Exeter City arrives for this game after a 1-1 home draw against Forest Green, adding in this way the second game followed without winning in official games: the only goal of the team was signed by Archie Collins. In the previous FA Cup qualifiers, the home team beat Fylde and Gillingham. Coach Matt Taylor should play in the usual 4-4-2, prioritizing defensive organization and successive counterattacks, making the best use of space on the opponent's defensive line. Striker Matt Jay is Exeter City's top scorer, with 11 goals scored. For this game the manager cannot count Rory McArdle due to physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: Lewis Ward, Jake Caprice, Lewis Page, Rory McArdle, Tom Parkes, Joel Randall, Josh Key, Jake Taylor, Archie Collins, Matt Jay, Ryan Bowman.
Coach: M. Taylor.

Analysis Sheff Wed

The team plays its first match in this edition of the FA Cup with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 8 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 11 goals scored and 13 conceded. In their last match, for the Championship, they got a home win against Derby County by (1‑0). In the last 10 away matches Sheffield Wednesday has won 1, tied 2 and lost 7. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Sheffield Wednesday comes to this game unmotivated after the 1-0 home victory over Derby County, thus registering the fourth straight official game without losing: the only goal of the match was signed by Callum Paterson. Despite playing away from home, coach Neil Thompson should opt for a more dominant strategy, favoring the maintenance of ball possession and slow attacks. Callum Paterson is one of Sheffield Wednesday's top scorers, with 4 goals scored. For this game the visiting team cannot use Chey Dunkley, Kieren Westwood, Julian Borner, Massimo Luongo, Josh Windass and Dominic Iorfa, all with physical problems.
