Coventry vs AFC Wimbledon Prediction & Match Preview

Coventry vs AFC Wimbledon
England- League One.
Date: Saturday,12th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ricoh Arena (Coventry).

Sky Blues are looking at an easy win on Saturday as they welcome the bottom side AFC Wimbledon to home.

The hosts are 8th in the table after 27 matches completed. But they have conceded 31 goals in that period which is 2 more than what they scored. The Sky Blues are fresh from an away loss against Scunthorpe with that match ending 2-1. This defeat came after a 3 game win streak in the league and made the fans question the manager’s tactics.

From the last 5 matches in League One, they won 3 and lost the remaining 2. Those 3 victories are the only ones from the last 13 competitive games for the team from West Midlands. At home, they are on a 2 match win streak after a similar bad spell of form.

The Wombles are at the bottom of the points table losing 16 of their 26 matches so far. Like most teams, they are also disastrous sin defense conceding 37 goals till now. They have won 3 and lost 1 of their last 5 competitive matches. Four of those games ended with a final score of over 2.5 goals in total.

Away form is contradictory of their overall performance, as they have won 2 and lost 3 of the last 5 matches on the road. Also, 4 of those 5 games had more than 2.5 goals on total and both teams found the net too.

Even though the position in the table may seem like a big difference, it may not be the case on Saturday.

Coventry vs AFC Wimbledon: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Wimbledon is yet to defeat these opponents in a competitive game.
  • Coventry has 1 win in all the 4 h2h matches played across all venues.
  • In 3 of those 4 games, both sets of players found the target.
  • Both teams shared the spoils in the last 3 h2h matches on the row.
  • The only game between these two sides at Coventry ended 2-2 in 2016.

Coventry vs AFC Wimbledon: Prediction

Both sides were able to hit the target on 3 of their 4 h2h encounters. This includes the only match at this ground too. The visitors have conceded in all 8 previous matches on the road. But they have scored on the latest 3 games as well. So we could expect both sides scoring in this upcoming league game and bet on the same with 2.00 odds.

Coventry is on a 2 match win streak at home and has lost only one match in their last 8 games in front of their home fans. So they play far better when they have home advantage. So I think they will have an edge over the Dons. Thus a bet can be placed on a win for Coventry City with 2.00 odds.
