Barnet vs Stockport
English FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 2 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: The Hive Stadium (London).
Both Barnet and Stockport made massive upsets against their respective higher division rivals before booking their head to head tie in the second round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon at The Hive Stadium. One of these two likes will thus have the opportunity to enjoy the FA Cup fairy-tale and go as deep as the third round of the competition.
The Bees held the likes of Bristol Rovers to a 1-1 draw in London, but were expected to get eliminated after the replay in Gloucestershire. The League One outfit broke the deadlock just after the hour-mark through Tom Nichols, but Barnet then made a spectacular comeback via two goals within two minutes. Craig Robson and Byron Harrison stunned Bristol Rovers at their Memorial Stadium to claim a huge victory and earn themselves a chance to make it to the third round past the lower-division opposition here.
Barnet vs Stockport: Head-to-head
It’s been eight years since these two likes last played each other.
They were battling it out in League Two football back then.
Stockport lead the H2H tie by a single win, but they only managed to beat Barnet once in five games at The Hive Stadium.
Each of past five head to head matches between these two sides saw the BTTS option “come in”.
Barnet vs Stockport: Prediction
The visitors, who sit 11th in the National League North standings after 17 rounds, shocked League Two side Yeovil Town 1-3 in the first round. They started the clash at Huish Park Stadium on the back foot when Alex Fisher broke the deadlock for Yeovil just eight minutes into the game, but Warburton, Bell and Mulhern turned it around for the Hatters.
Stockport will head into this in the highest of spirits after beating Chorley 3-0 at home in the FA Trophy tie last weekend. They’ve been pretty efficient throughout the season and we expect to see them on the scoreline at least once on Sunday at The Hive Stadium. Over 2.5 goals FT is the bet you just can’t make a mistake with here.
