Predictions and Betting Tips for Dunfermline Athletic vs Annan Athletic

Halftime Dunfermline

It has been many years since these teams have met, in fact, it has been a long time since they have been in the same level of Scottish football. In the last 2 meetings, Dunfermline won both matches, which is proof that they have always dominated their opponents.

The visitors conceded a couple of goals in the first half of their last match. The Pars scored very good goals in their last matches. I think the home team will take the lead quickly and will be the break winning the match.

Under 2.5 Goals

The Pars’ last five games ended with fewer than 2.5 goals. This factor was repeated repeatedly last season.

At the start of the season, we have seen the same pattern in the home team’s games. Based on this peculiarity, my Dunfermline vs Annan Athletic prediction is that there will be less than 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score – No

The most significant element about the home team’s friendlies against opponents from the second division is that they gave up a few goals. The opposition will undoubtedly struggle to score in this game after failing to do so in the last one. In this game, I think just one team will score.

The most recent preview for Dunfermline vs Annan Athletic:

Dunfermline

The season was full of inconsistent results for The Pars. However, the friendly matches were a useful opportunity for coach James McPake to test the new additions.

In the previous fixture, Dunfermline visited Raith Rovers. The Pars took the lead in the 31st minute with a goal from Lewis McCann. It took 9 minutes before Raith Rovers equalised. The score remained unchanged and the match went to penalties. Dunfermline won 4-2.

Annan Athletic

This group round would be a nightmare for Peter Murphy’s team after a poor showing on matchday 1. Black and Golds played Scottish Premiership team Kilmarnock away earlier in the day.

Kilmarnock dominated the game from the start, as was to be anticipated. Actually, it took them five minutes to score the first goal, and by the time the 15th minute rolled around, they were up 2-0. Annan Athletic needed more opportunity to tie the score, and the opposite occurred. Their rivals increased their advantage to three goals. Black and Golds are currently in the last position.
