AFC Wimbledon vs Southend Prediction & Match Preview

AFC Wimbledon vs Southend
England–League One
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kingsmeadow (London).

Two teams who are struggling in recent league matches will meet at Wimbledon on Saturday.

The Dons are going from bad to worse. They are currently in the relegation zone with 12 defeats in their 17 matches so far. The forwards have only found 11 goals while 26 has been conceded.

From the last 6 matches in all competitions, they have lost 4 and have 2 wins. In the league, they are on a 7 game losing streak. They last won a league match back in September. At home, they have lost the last 4 league games. Over 2.5 goals came from 3 of the last 5 home games as well.

Caretaker Manager Simon Bassey has to act quickly to bring his team back to winning ways. Southend is a strong opponent and can take them apart with the kind of form they are in now.

Southend is better compared to their opponents for Saturday. They are 13th in the table with 7 wins and 8 defeats, conceding 22 and scoring 21 on the process. In their previous 6 matches from all competitions, they have lost 3 and won only 2. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of those games.

Away from home, they had some bad results recently. In the previous 5 matches on the road, the Blues had lost 3 with 2 defeats coming in succession. Also, they have no clean sheets in 5 of the last 6 away games.

Since both teams are coming from consecutive defeats in the league, we can expect a close match with both teams playing for a win.

AFC Wimbledon vs Southend: Prediction

Both the teams have lost their last league match. So they are low on morale and needs a win to get going. The home team has won their last cup game in this ground, but these opponents are a class apart. The away side will have more chances to win as the home team are on a 5 match losing streak. So we can bet on the game to be a draw or the away side to win with1.55 odd.

In half of the games played by both teams in the league, the score had under 2.5 goals. Even though recent home games of the hosts had over 2.5 goals, I don’t think that will repeat on Saturday. So we can bet on the score to be under 2.5 goals with 1.70 odd.
