Coventry vs Exeter Prediction & Betting tips
In the League One is still a free place to forgive. To compete for this on Monday (28.05., 15:00) in the final of the playoffs of the Coventry Football Club and the Exeter City Football Club. There is no real home advantage for either club because the match will take place in the venerable Wembley Stadium in London. This may well explain why bookmakers see a slight advantage in terms of odds at Coventry, who beat Semen in the play-offs after a 1-1 first-leg draw in the first leg in the return leg at Notts Country 4-1 could prevail. Exeter, meanwhile, did not make a goalless draw in the semi-final first leg at Lincoln City, only clearing the final with a 3-1 home win. Since both teams have not really taken much over the whole course of the season, we do not want to commit ourselves to a favorite. Striking for both teams was that they conceded a goal in regularity. This also leads us to our tip on both to score bets. These are offered by William Hill to interesting odds up to 1.95 and played by us with the use of two units.
Coventry City FC dropped out of League One last year and, with a record of 22 wins, nine draws and 15 defeats, a 64/47 goal difference and 75 points in sixth, has just barely regained the chance of direct relegation. After all, the gap to eighth place was just three points. In the semi-finals of the play-offs, it was therefore against the fifth-placed Notts County FC, which was kicked out with a total score of 5: 2 from the play-offs. One of the strengths of the Sky Blues was a strong defensive, which is only the third best of League Two with only 49 goals. Although the offensive over the main round was not one of the strongest, it must be awarded a decent boost. Finally, the team of coach Mark Robins scored 29 goals in the last twelve games, which was an average of around 2.4 goals per game.
In view of the fact that the upcoming game will be played at Wembley Stadium, we take a look at the away balance here. Here, after the semi-finals of the play-offs, there is a slightly positive 10-5-9 balance sheet. The last three away games against Crawley Town (14th, 2: 1), Cheltenham Town (17th, 6: 1) and Notts County (5th, 4: 1) were able to win the Sky Blues but still and should be confident before the neatly increased in the upcoming final.
For the Exeter City FC, the play-off final is already the second in less than a year. Already a year ago, the Grecians were on the green of Wembley Stadium, but failed at Blackpool FC, who narrowly prevailed 2-1 and established himself in the current season in the League One. Exeter also wants in the next major league and was able to increase in the current season. So Paul Tisdale’s side reached fifth place in the main round with a strong record of 24 wins, eight draws and 14 defeats, a 64:54 and 80-point goal difference. The gap to the third direct promotion place was only four points in the end. In the semi-finals of the play-offs Exeter then beat Lincoln City with a total score of 3: 1. The offensive is basically comparable to that of Coventry, this scored in the main round but also 64 goals. In the average of the last twelve games it was only enough for 1.75 hits per game. Defensively there is still some catching up to do, but a goal in the two semi-finals of the play-offs is a decent value.
Also at Exeter we take a look at the away statistics. This remained after the goalless draw in the semifinals with a 9-5-10 balance sheet still slightly negative. However, it must be noted here that the Tisdale team could only win one of their last five away games. Of the last three games against Accrington Stanley (1st, 1: 1), Stevenage FC (16th, 1: 3) and Lincoln City (7th, 0: 0), the Grecians could win any more. The draw against the champions of League Two (Accrington), who could otherwise win all home games in 2018, is a positive one.
