St Johnstone vs Stirling Predictions by Punditfeed

Notably, St Johnstone defeated Stirling once in the only previous duel, a game that took place in 2016. But given the recent performances of both teams, repeating a similar feat could be difficult in this Scottish League Cup clash. The following are our top St Johnstone vs Stirling predictions:

Both Teams to Score

In the first St Johnstone vs Stirling prediction, our tip is on the team to score. We expect both sides to find the back of the net in this Scottish League Cup, noting that both sides failed to score only once in their last five games across all competitions.

Over 2.5 Goals

The second St Johnstone vs Stirling prediction is a bet on the total match goals. Our tip is over 2.5 goals or at least three goals to be scored in this game. The previous meeting yielded a total of 4 goals.  And the fact that both teams failed to score in only one of their last five outings point to the possibility of a high-scoring game.

Over 1.5 Stirling Goals

In another St Johnstone vs Stirling prediction, we have a tip on the total team goals. With the visitors boasting a better run of form and winning the previous duel with St Johnstone, we think they will score at least twice in this game. With that, the final tip is over 1.5 Sterling goals.

St Johnstone vs Stirling Scottish Cup Fixture Preview

Two defeats in three rounds have set St Johnstone back 6 points in the Scottish League Cup. The hosts have only won only once, scoring a total of 5 goals and leaking three goals in the rounds played so far.

In the last five outings across all competitions, St Johnstone bagged 7 points from two wins, and one draw. They have two clean sheets from the last five outings, which is quite modest but head coach Steven MacLean will have to field an even stronger defence if his side is to get the vital three points from this game.

On the flip side, Stirling also lost twice in their last five outings, so how they perform in this game will be an important step in their desire to catch up and remain competitive for a playoff spot. The visitors have only one clean sheet from the last five games and bagged 9 points in that period. Thus, given that they previously defeated St Johnstone, Stirling look to build on a two-match winning streak in the Scottish League Cup when they clash with St Johnston on Saturday, 29th May 2023.
