In the 1/64 finals of the FA Cup, Coventry City and Northampton will meet. Will more experienced hosts be able to defeat their opponents on August 11 and come out ahead in personal meetings – you will find the answer in our forecast.
Coventry City finished 16th in the Championship last season, 12 points ahead of the relegation zone. The team of Mark Robins spent a lot of preparation in the offseason and played several friendly matches with stronger opponents. Among them are defeats against Sevilla (0: 4) and Wolverhampton (1: 2), as well as a victory over Leamington (3: 1).
The club spent the starting round at home and beat Nottingham Forest (2: 1), conceding at the beginning of the meeting and scoring twice at the end of the match.
Northampton finished 22nd in the last England First League and were relegated to a lower division. The team received a new mentor in the offseason, he was John Brady , who spent a preparatory camp with the club, where his players lost to West Ham (1: 2) and Stamford (1: 2) in test matches.
The team spent the first round in the Second League at home and beat Port Vale minimally (1: 0), having no advantage over the away team.
“Sky Blue” have an advantage in the class and the level of individual skill of the performers. The club plays in a strong division and is used to serious opposition in every match, which cannot be said about an opponent who could not hold out in the First League. The statistics of head-to-head meetings has two victories for each team and in the upcoming game Coventry City may improve these indicators. We believe that the nominal hosts look more preferable at the start of the season and will be able to overcome the Northampton barrier with little effort, gaining a landslide victory.
Our forecast is an Asian handicap (-1) at Coventry City . For such an outcome, BK Fonbet offers a coefficient of 2.16
Teams often play quite effectively with each other and were distinguished by good implementation in control matches. For clubs of this scale, the League Cup is a priority and both teams will want, in our opinion, to show attacking football with good implementation. We believe that the confrontation will become spectacular and rich in goals scored.
Our second bet will be over 2.5 goals total . This bet can be placed for 1.86
