Rotherham to Win

While the home team had the better start of the season than the guests, Rotherham is the better team on paper. After all, they have been relegated from the Championship while Morecambe gained promotion from League Two, which means that they were separated by an entire flight of football last season. With that in mind, our prediction is for Rotherham to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The only game that these two teams have played in the last five years was a cup duel that ended 3-3, before the match went to extra time in which Morecambe pulled off a win to end the game 5-4. With this in mind, we expect to see a high-scoring game here. Furthermore, Morecambe went over 2.5 total goals in two of their three matches this season in all competitions.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we mentioned before, the only recent h2h duel between Morecambe and Rotherham ended with nine goals scored, six of which were scored in the regular time. So, we expect both teams to score in their upcoming game as well, especially since both teams scored in two of the three Morecambe matches in all competitions.

Morecambe vs Rotherham preview: Can Morecambe pull an upset here?

Playing in League One is a new ground for both teams, so let’s take a closer look at them and what we can expect to see in this duel:

Morecambe

After missing on the direct promotion by just one point, Morecambe managed to regroup and secure their spot in League One through the playoffs. It wasn’t an easy path though, especially at Wembley in the final match against Newport in which Morecambe pulled off a 1-0 win only after extra time. In any case, Morecambe started the season in League One with a win and a draw and they also eliminated Blackburn in the EFL Cup. So, it’s been a great start for them and their fans.

Rotherham

Last season was disappointing for Rotherham since they were relegated from the Championship in a crazy last matchday of the season. So, the team is probably hoping for a quick return to the second-flight of the English football, but the start of the season in League One isn’t too encouraging since Rotherham has one win and one loss in the league, in addition to being eliminated from the EFL Cup after losing to Accrington at home.
