Forfar vs Arbroath Predictions and Tips

The match between Forfar and Arbroath will be the third round in the Scottish League Cup for both sides. The hosts have won two games from two rounds while Arbroath won the second round, which was an improvement on their performance following a losing start to the campaign. Here are the top Forfar vs Arbroath predictions:

Forfar to Score First

The first Forfar vs Arbroath prediction is a bet on the hosts to score the match opener. They have demonstrated resilience after two rounds in the Scottish League, bagging maximum points from the two rounds. And with home support and a second home game, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to conclude Forfar could get another clean sheet home win in this third round.

Forfar Double Chance

In the second Forfar vs Arbroath prediction, we expect the game to end in favour of Forfar or at worst, a draw. Two wins from two rounds and now another home game gives the hosts a higher chance of bagging all points. On the flip side, Arbroath settled for the spoils in the first round that ended 1-1 in regular time but went on to claim maximum points in penalties. However, a massive 4-0 thrashing by St Mirren must have dimmed their spirits and now, playing away from home means the best Arbroath can get from this duel is a point.

Over 2.5 Goals

In the final Forfar vs Arbroath prediction, we predict a goal-fest. For odds of 1.80 on the over 2.5 goals betting market, the implied probability for such an outcome is 56%. The visitors have dominated Forfar in the past, so there is a good chance they can equally register on the scoresheet on matchday.

Forfar vs Arbroath Scottish League Cup Fixture Preview

Forfar’s campaign in the Scottish League Cup has been a perfect run of two wins from two games so far. However, this game comes with the challenge of defeating a team that they have lost to 14 times in the last 20 meetings and against which they won only four times.

But looking at the performances at the coaching level, we get an interesting twist to Forfar vs Arbroath. Hosting coach Ray Mckinnon and Arbroath head coach, Dick Campbell, have met 13 times. In those meetings, there were three draws, which means the coaches have bagged 5 wins apiece against each other. Thus, the real battle will be who between the two tacticians will emerge supreme over the other.

Thus, let’s look closely are the coaching starts on both sides.

Forfar’s head coach, Mckinnon, averages 1.60 points from 25 matches of 11 wins, 7 draws and 7 defeats. On the flip side,  the visiting coach, Dick Campell, averages 1.46 points from 275 matches of 110 wins, 71 draws and 94 losses.
