Derby to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Even though Derby barely escaped relegation last season, they are still the better team compared to Salford who plays in League Two. That being said, these two teams met a couple of weeks ago in a friendly match, which Salford won 2-1. Still, our prediction for this game is for Derby to lead at half time and win it at the end, simply based on the difference in quality between the teams and the fact that Derby is playing at home.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The friendly match between these teams that was played a couple of weeks ago is their only head-to-head meeting and it went over 2.5 total goals. With that in mind, and the fact that we expect a convincing win for Derby, we expect this match to go over 2.5 total goals as well. That being said, Derby averaged 2.04 last season in the league, while Salford averaged just 1.91 goals per game last season in League Two.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

While we expect Derby to win the game, we can see Salford scoring in this match. After all, they’ve scored a couple of goals against Derby in their friendly meet just a couple of weeks ago. Furthermore, this is a cup game and there is no rematch, so both teams will play offensively to try and finish the job in regular time and avoid penatlties.

Derby vs Salford preview: Can Salford put up a fight?

We expect to see an exciting duel between these two teams, despite the fact that the guests are playing in a lower league. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams now:

Derby

The last day of Championship last season was very exciting and we only found out who was relegated in the last fifteen minutes of the season. Fortunately for Derby, they ended up on the positive side of things that day, so they will have a chance to do better this season in the second-tier league of English football. In the first round of Championship this season, Derby drew with Huddersfield at home.

Salford

After missing the playoffs in League Two last season by just a couple of points, Salford will be hoping to at least reach this stage this year, if not even fight for a direct promotion to League One. However, they started the new League Two season with a draw with Leyton Orient at home, so they will have to do better in the future if they want to reach their goals this season.
