Predictions and Best Odds for Stockport vs Salford

The battle for the final at Wembley is upon us with Salford traveling to Stockport as a slight favorite with a one-goal advantage from the first leg of this promotion semifinal clash.

Stockport to Win

Stockport failed to score in the first leg of this semifinal duel against Salford, but there is still a good chance that the team can find a way to get themselves into the final. Interestingly, in the two games these teams faced each other during the regular season, Stockport won the away game while drawing at home. For this Stockport vs Salford prediction, it is essential for the hosts to get the job done or otherwise they are going to be eliminated. Stockport's home form during the season is a good reason why the team and its fans will feel that they can overturn the deficit from the first leg and qualify for the final match. Stockport lost only three games at home in 23 games this season at their home stadium with eleven draws in between.

Under 2.5 Goals

The first Stockport vs Salford match was a good sign of the way this duel will be played out over two legs. Even in their previous couple of matches during the first part of the season, both games went under the two-and-a-half goals line. The first match of this semifinal series ended with only a single goal as the difference. During the preliminary stage of the year, both teams had more ‘under' games than the other way around, and in this instance, with so much at stake, it is highly unlikely that we will see an abundance of goals. In a certain way, the counterargument for this pick is the fact that Salford is the best ‘over' team when playing away from home.
