These are our Montrose vs Forfar predictions and tips:

Forfar to Not go Home Empty-handed

Montrose are today’s favourites, which makes sense considering they play in League One, while their opponents are a League Two side. However, we’ve been impressed by Forfar Athletic’s recent results. The visitors have enjoyed some fine form lately; as they’ve won four matches in a row. Furthermore, Forfar Athletic have no losses in their last three encounters with Montrose; and for this reason, we don’t think they’ll lose this game.

Both Teams to Score

For our second Montrose vs Forfar prediction, let’s take a look at the BTTS market. Although Montrose managed just two wins in their last six matches, they’ve consistently scored goals in recent weeks. Stewart Petrie’s men found the back of the net in their last five, and eight of their last nine matches. Conversely, Montrose have seen their defense breached in 12 of their last 13 matches across all competitions. It may interest you to know that both teams were on the scoresheet in seven of Montrose’s last nine matches. Bearing in mind that Forfar Athletic scored in all of their last five matches, we should expect goals at both ends.

Over 2.5 Goals

We would like to point out that Montrose and Forfar Athletic have squared off against each other a fair few times, and most of those clashes have been on the high-scoring side. As a matter of fact, four of the last six skirmishes between these teams featured at least three goals. In like manner, eight of Montrose’s last 10 games went north of the 2.5 goal marker; and for this reason, we believe that this will be a high-scoring affair.

Montrose vs Forfar Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Montrose

Montrose defeated St Mirren by a lone goal last weekend. That was their second consecutive victory, they had no wins in four prior matches, with a draw and three losses. This will be a tricky fixture for Stewart Petrie’s lads, as they take on an in-form Forfar Athletic. It’ll be interesting to see if Montrose can string up three consecutive wins at the end of this match.

Forfar

Likewise, Forfar Athletic won their opening match by a lone goal; and with that victory, they extended their winning streak to four matches. Ray McKinnon will hope to guide his team to their fifth straight win as they take on Montrose today.

Montrose vs Forfar Lineups

Matheus Machado picked up a knock last weekend, and is doubtful for Montrose. On the other hand, Forfar Athletic have no new absentees heading into this match.
