Yeovil vs Lincoln
England- League Two.
Date: Tuesday, 22nd January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Huish Park (Yeovil).
It is literally men against boys as the table toppers will travel to Yeovil who is at the bottom of the table.
The Glovers are just 3 points clear of the relegation zone and a win would really help them right now. With 20 games yet to come, they still have a chance to stay at this level next year too. A total of 28 goals have been scored by them until now but conceded more than that.
An away win over Mansfield in the last league game broke a 10 match long winless run in all competitions. In 5 of their last 7 competitive games, the score had less than 2.5 goals in total at the full time. They lost 5 of their last 6 home games in which they are winless as of now. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 6 matches as well.
The Imps have a golden opportunity to extend their lead with a win. They are challenged by their nearest opponents-Bury who are just 3 points below them. But with 2 matches in hand, the toppers will have a clear distance from the rest of the pack.
In the last 5 games, they lost 2 and won only one across all competitions. Both teams scored in all those 5 matches and more than 2.5 goals came in 4 of those matches too. Three games in that spell ended with the same score 2-1.
They are also inconsistent in recent away matches with 2 wins and losses each in the last 5 games. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals came in 4 of them and the common scoreline was 2-1.
With both the sides struggling in their latest matches, we can hope this will be a closely contested clash.

Yeovil vs Lincoln: Prediction
Imps are much better this season in both scoring and defending. While the hosts are going from bad to worse this season. At home, they have not tasted victory since a 2-0 win over Stevenage in August 2018. So even though the visitors are winless in their last 2 competitive away matches, I recommend betting for Lincoln to win with 2.00 odds.
The vast majority of their h2h games had over 2.5 goals in total which includes 2 of the 3 h2h matches at this ground. A similar scoreline evolved in 5 of the previous 7 home matches of Yeovil. All the previous 4 games on the road for the Imps had the same score. So let us bet on a score with over 2.5 goals with 2.10 odds.
