 Harrogate to win

We are backing Harrogate Town to win against Rochdale in round one the EFL Cup fixtures. These teams met on 7th August this year and Harrogate sailed past the visitors in a fixture that ended 3-2. Another home advantage should come with victory at the CNG Stadium.

Harrogate to open the scoring

In the first meeting this year a few days ago, Harrogate was the best side and was ahead by two goals at the 10th-minute mark before Rochdale equalized five minutes later. Unless the visitors fix their troubled backline, Harrogate is our favourite to open the scoring in this game.

Under 2.5 Goals: Yes

Even though the League Two encounter between these teams over a week ago had a total of five goals, we think this fixture creates a different mood and atmosphere.  With that, both teams should put in a shift to progress to the next round. A tense game should yield only a few goals in regular time.

Game Preview: Harrogate Looking for Second Victory over Rochdale within a Month

After a 3-2 victory over Rochdale in the first match of League Two this season, Harrogate has another test of proving their dominance over the visitors in the EFL Cup. Find out more in our fixture preview.

Harrogate Town

Harrogate Town was the better side when they hosted Rochdale in their first game of the 2021/22 season. It was the first meeting between these teams in recent memory. The hosts were ahead at the break before Rochdale equalized four minutes after half-time. However, the visitors were unlucky because Harrogate netted again in the penultimate through Warren Burell to claim a 3-2 victory in regular time. With eight shots on target against five and nine corner kicks against four, Harrogate Town should have bagged even more goals if not for defensive problems that left them with no chance but defend more.

Rochdale

The visitors hope they can get the better of Harrogate’s troubled defence in the second meeting within a week. The visitor had 55% ball possession against Harrogate Town a few days in the first game of League Two fixtures this season. However, they were not clinical enough to score more goals despite getting five shots on target, three less than those of Harrogate Town.
