Forge vs Atletico Ottawa Lineups & Team News
Coach Bobby Smyrniotis’ side came close to turning the match against HFX Wanderers around, but after 90 minutes of soccer, the Wanderers won the match against Forge. Woobens Pacius leveled the score in the 34th minute of the game and the team made a couple more good goalscoring opportunities, only for Daniel Nimick to bag a 47th-minute winner for HFX Wanderers.
Predicted lineup – Henry (GK), James, Achinioti-Jonsson, Rama, Sissoko, Hojabrpour, Bekker, Poku, Badibanga, Campbell & Pacius
You can’t expect to win games when you produce only eight shots at target and have a lackluster 32.0% possession. That’s what Atletico Ottawa’s efforts amounted to in the match against York United. Coach Nash’s boys completely nullified Atletico Ottawa’s offense, and we are sure that we’ll see more of the same on the 7th, as our Forge vs Atletico Ottawa predictions prove successful.
Predicted lineup – Ingham (GK), Singh, Espejo, Acosta, Tissot, Iliadis, Zapater, Assi, Verhoeven, Bassett & Salter
Player to Watch: Woobens Pacius
As we explained earlier in our Forge vs Atletico Ottawa prediction, Woobens Pacius scored the only goal for coach Smyrniotis’ side in the match against HFX Wanderers. The game at Wanderer Ground was never expected to be easy, but the fans were at least hoping for a point. Woobens Pacius’ efforts amounted to nothing, as his goal was merely a consolation prize for him. It was his 10th of the season, with which he equaled partner-in-crime Terran Campbell’s tally. We are sure that Woobens will be a starter for coach Smyrniotis despite Forge not having a shot at 1st place anymore.
