Rochdale vs AFC Wimbledon
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 19th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Spotland Stadium (Rochdale).
As the final chapter of the league unfolds, it’s the most crucial time period for the teams at both the extreme ends, and in this case, we are dealing with the bottom tier. Wimbledon is without contest the worst team in the competition and remains the only side that is yet to cross the 30-point mark. Also, they are seven points off the next better team.
It’s almost settled that they are the firm favorites to take the trip downwards to League Two. Rochdale, on the other hand, is floating above the relegation line by a whisker, and it’s anyone’s guess when they might crash into the dreaded section. This season, their unique identity has been their leaky defense. Any other side is yet to concede 60 goals, while our team sits strong at 63. Even better, only one squad has crossed the 55-limit.

Rochdale vs AFC Wimbledon Prediction
The hosts have conceded the most number of goals in overall in League One, and the most at home. They have conceded in 18 of their last 20 matches, and their last seven in a row. Furthermore, the team let in four or more goals in three of their last five home ties.
Coming to AFC Wimbledon, the set of players have conceded in 18 of their last 20 fixtures, and in 13 of their last 15 away appearances. They are also the weakest of the 24 sides in contention.
Moreover, four of the last five h2h games, and every meeting at this venue, except for one, had goals from either side.
Taking into account all of these, we can anticipate a high-scoring thriller, where goals would come in either direction and would cross the 2.5 limit.
