Fleetwood vs AFC Wimbledon Prediction & Match Preview

Fleetwood vs AFC Wimbledon
England- FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 5th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Highbury Stadium (Fleetwood).

Two sides from League One will meet in Round of 32 of the FA Cup on Saturday as Fleetwood welcomes Wimbledon.

The hosts are 11th in the League with 9 wins and 10 defeats. From the last 5 matches across all venues, they lost and won 2 each. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 games also. A 6 match unbeaten streak at home which included 5 wins ended with a loss against Portsmouth. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of their last 7 home fixtures.

Fleetwood had 2 easy opponents in the primary rounds of the Cup in Alfreton and Guiseley. The match against the former ended 1-4 in favor of the Fishermen, while Guiseley was hard to beat. The match against Wimbledon will be easy as far as the stats are concerned.

The Dons are at the bottom of their League table and will most likely get relegated at the end of this season. They have a similar recent form as their rivals, winning and losing 2 games each. The final score of their recent 3 matches had more than 2.5 goals. They lost 3 of their previous 5 matches on the road. The Wombles do not have a clean sheet in the last 7 traveling games as well.

Wimbledon too had particularly easy starting rounds in the Cup. They won the opener against Haringey  0-1 and went on to win the second round against FC Halifax 1-3. The match on Saturday will be their first real challenge in the Cup.

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

Fleetwood vs AFC Wimbledon: Prediction

The hosts are better I all aspects of the game compared to their opponents for Saturday. This is why they are 6th and the visitors are last in the League One table. In the present condition, I don’t see Wimbledon winning this game. So we can place our bets on Fleetwood winning n Saturday with 2.20 odds.

When we check the h2h stats, it is clear that the recent scorelines had fewer than 2.5 goals at the final whistle. But in 5 of the last 7 matches on the road for Wombles had more than 2.5 goals. This is also same for the hosts as well. Thus we can bet on a final score of over 2.5 goals with 2.00 odds.

Fleetwood vs AFC Wimbledon: Betting Tips

  • Fleetwood to win @ 2.20 (6/5).
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 2.00 (1/1).
