Barrow to Win

Both squads are situated in the lower half of the League Two table, with Southend being in the danger zone. The biggest distinction between the sides is in the goal difference. Southend has a –30 GD, while Barrow has it much better with just –5. The Bluebirds have scored nearly two times more goals than their opponents. Furthermore, the visitors have had issues on the road this season, scoring just 11 when playing away from home.


The statistics speak for themselves here. Southend averages 0.5 goals scored as visitors and the minuscule 27% of BTTS – Yes in those same games. Backing the BTTS – No option at the odds of 5/6 will provide a decent risk/reward ratio.

Under 2.5 Goals

Under 2.5 Goals at the odds of 4/6 is something you don’t see every day, but there's a reason for that. Once again it has to do with the Shrimpers' style of play. As guests, only 23% of their 22 games so far, have finished with over 2.5 goals. The percentage isn’t looking too good for Barrow either, with 36% of their games hitting over 2.5.

In the following section, you can enjoy glancing through the most important stats for this match, as well as the best odds.

Can Southend escape relegation?

While it is all mathematically possible, it would need quite a few miracles to happen. With just two games left, The Shrimpers need to win both, improve their goal difference with at least +9, all while Scunthorpe doesn’t get any points and score any goals. All of this could start with a win against Barrow, but the statistics heavily reject that idea.

It's worth pointing out that in their only meeting before, Southend was the one to take the win 1-0. Make no mistake though, Barrow is the favored side in this match-up. The much better goal difference and better form at home, combined with Southend’s struggles away from home should be enough to get the hosts the three points.
