Elgin vs Motherwell Prediction, Betting Odds, and Free Tips 15/07/2023

The first round of the Scottish League Cup kicks off. Group G will pit two teams that finished the previous season with poor results against each other, so both will be looking to improve their image with a strong performance in this tournament. To place the best bet, check out our Elgin vs Motherwell prediction.

The Top Betting Tips and Top Predictions for Elgin vs Motherwell

Motherwell to Win Halftime/Fulltime

Because they play in the top level of Scottish football, the away team is the favorite to win this match. In addition to being in the second tier, the home team was on the verge of being relegated.

While the home team lost all of their pre-season games, the away team won six of their last eight games without losing a single one. Considering these variables, I believe the away team will take the lead in the first half and continue to lead throughout the game.

Over 2.5 Goals

In the two friendly matches, the host team conceded five goals. At the same time, the away team scored six goals in their most recent friendly match. My second prediction for Elgin against Motherwell is that there will be more than 2.5 goals after 90 minutes.

Goals in Both Halves

Motherwell’s players were in terrific form in their most recent match. Mark Ferrie and Blair Spittal both had two goals in a 6-0 victory over HSC ’21. There were three goals in the first half and three more in the second. Based on this, I anticipate at least one goal in both the first and second halves of the forthcoming matchup.

The Latest Elgin vs Motherwell Preview:

Elgin

The Scottish team had a rough season last year. They won 11, drew 7, and lost 18 games after 36 games. They accumulated 40 points in total and finished second last, one point above the relegation zone.

The new coach will seek to improve the team’s results this season. A handful of new players have joined the team and have already seen action. Elgin City have suffered defeats in a handful of friendlies, which is cause for concern.

Motherwell

Stuart Kettlewell will remain in charge after the club avoided relegation. Motherwell finished eighth in the overall ranking last season, with 37 points. In 33 games, they won ten, drew seven, and lost sixteen.

Striker Kevin van Veen had an excellent effort, scoring 25 goals in a game in which the team scored 44. Motherwell’s primary issue was their defensive flaws, as they conceded 48 goals.
