AFC Wimbledon vs Bristol Rovers
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kingsmeadow (London).
Wimbledon is another squad that is struggling to keep up with the intense demands of the league. They are winless so far, and to add problems, have played an extra game too. Still, the squad is placed in the relegation zone, and at present, have scored the second-least number of goals.
This weekend, they will need to heavily lean on the home advantage to salvage a satisfactory game.
The incoming Rovers will be aware of this desperation of the hosts, and if smart, can make use of it. Despite their promising league standing, the squad needs to improve their away stats, and this Saturday could pave way for it.
AFC Wimbledon vs Bristol Rovers Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the former eleven wins went to the Rovers.

- The hosts managed to score a total of two goals from the previous five meetings at this venue.
- Since 2012, Wimbledon has recorded a single win at home.
AFC Wimbledon vs Bristol Rovers Prediction
AFC is winless in their previous 12 games on the trot and lost eight of these as well. At home, they stood devoid of a win in their former 11 match-ups, and in 17 of their former 20.
Meanwhile, Bristol is unbeaten in their prior four games and won their last tie on the road. The fixture was against Lincoln, a formidable competitor.
Moreover, h2h clashes too point towards the guests as the favorite. The home team could dole out a single win at this stadium since 2012, and score a total of two goals from the former five meetings at this stadium.
Taking these observations into account, the basic expectation is for the visitors to avoid a loss, and for the hosts to struggle to find the back of the net.
