Wanderers vs Forge prediction: Forge to prove bookies right

Key Stats

  • Forge have a head-to-head advantage over HFX Wanderers, as the last 10 matches resulted in five victories for Forge, three draws, and only two Wanderers wins.
  • We saw goals galore in four consecutive Wanderers vs Forge head-to-heads.
  • BTTS was the case in five of Forge’s last nine matches in all competitions.
  • Wanderers have the 3rd-weakest backline in the business, with 13 goals conceded.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Canadian Premier League champs can win this

  • HOME: +170 – 34.7%
  • DRAW: +230 – 25.0%
  • AWAY: +150 – 38.3%

*These Wanderers vs Forge odds are subject to change

A draw between the two teams might seem plausible at +230 (25.0%), but we do believe Forge deserve to be named the expected winners, with a 38.3% win probability ahead of the kick-off. Even with the home-field advantage at Wanderer Grounds behind them, coach Patrice Gheisar’s boys barely have a 34.7% win probability. BTTS is also a good option here, as our key Wanderers vs Pacific prediction has a 58.85% success chance at -143.

Despite having a general head-to-head advantage over HFX Wanderers, it’s Gheisar’s boys who did better in recent matches.

Wanderers team news and form: Winless HFX Wanderers

Another huge plus in favor of our Wanderers vs Forge predictions is the fact that Tiago Coimbra won’t partake in this event. He received a direct red in the match against Atletico Ottawa a couple of days ago, so he will sit out this match against the Canadian champions.

Predicted lineup: Fillion (GK), Fernandez, Dunn, Loughrey, Timoteo, Callegari, Gagnon-Lapare, Ferrazzo, Probo, Daniels & Ferrin

Forge team news and form: Kane out for Smyrniotis

Khadim Kane is suspended and will be ineligible to coach Smyrniotis ahead of the kick-off against HFX Wanderers. However, Khadim doesn’t enjoy much first-team action so his absence won’t affect our Wanderers vs Forge predictions that much. Coach Bobby Smyrniotis has plenty of quality players to pick from, and we are sure he will make the right call.

Predicted lineup: Kalongo (GK), Owolabi-Belewu, Duran, Achinioti-Jonsson, Duncan, Hojabrpour, Bekker, Borges, Badibanga, Choiniere & Poku

Player to watch: Daniel Parra

Former Monterrey starlet Daniel Parra is the player to watch in our Wanderers vs Forge prediction, as he’s a firm starter for Smyrniotis. Ever since he joined the club a couple of months ago, Daniel Parra has enjoyed a lot of first-team soccer.

Daniel Parra’s valuable contribution must be acknowledged

Not only is Daniel a rock at the back for Forge, but he also has three goal contributions in 2024 – one goal and two assists. His display is truly uplifting, and we are sure he will be a starter for his manager once more.
