Notts County vs Coventry Prediction & Betting tips
Three newcomers to League Two are already determined. In the remaining two playoff rounds, the fourth is now determined. Notts County Football Club and Coventry City Football Club cross the sabers in the semi-final. In the first leg just a week ago, both teams parted with a 1-1 draw. The advantage lies therefore with the team from Nottingham, which could achieve the important away goal at the beginning of the second half and conceded compensation only late. Add to that the home strength of the Magpies – as the Elf from Nottingham are also known for their black and white striped jerseys – who have been unbeaten in nine games at Meadow Lane. Our tip is therefore to double odds bets 1 / X, which are offered by Bet365 to odds up to 1.50. A bet of seven units seems appropriate for this bet, especially as the Magpies sent the Sky Blues home 2-1 just five weeks ago.
After three seasons in fourth division League Two, Notts County has battled for fifth place with a record of 21 wins, 14 draws and 11 defeats, a goal difference of 71:48 and 77 points in the main round. The gap to the last direct promotion place was seven points at the end, but after all, the Magpies have stood the chance of promotion. One reason for this hitherto successful season is certainly on the defensive, which is at least one of the five best in League Two. But even the offensive does not have to hide, it ranks only just behind the top three.
Another key element was certainly in the Meadow Lane, where Notts County since the year 1910 holds the home games. Here the Magpies conceded in the current season so far only two defeats, with 14 wins and seven draws. For nine home games, the team from Nottingham is already unbeaten. Most recently, two wins against Coventry City (6-2, 2: 1) and Yeovil Town (19th, 4-1) were followed by a very respectable goalless draw against Luton Town, by far the most offensive team in League Two.
Coventry City relegated from League One last year, with a record of 22 wins, nine draws and 15 defeats, a 64/47 and 75-point goal difference, and the odds of direct relegation. After all, the gap to eighth place was just three points. Also in the sky blues – as Coventry City are also known as the sky blue jerseys – the key of the current season is to look for the strong defensive, which is after all the third best of League Two. Offensively there is certainly still some catching up to do. However, Coventry scored in each of the last ten games at least once the ball in the opponent’s housing.
The average score of Coventry is at best average. Nine wins have nine defeats and five draws. Of the last ten league games the Sky Blues lost a total of four, but with a rising form can be seen. Two defeats and two draws followed on three defeats before a 1-2 defeat could not be prevented against their opponents. The last two away games at Crawley Town (14th, 2: 1) and Cheltenham Town (17th, 6: 1) were then good for their own morale again, although it can not be denied that the opponents from the bottom Half of the League Two came from the League.
