Stevenage vs Macclesfield Town - Free Betting Tips

Stevenage
Macclesfield Town

Stevenage lost their last last home match against Cambridge, but have a chance today to pick up valuable points against Macclesfield Town. The visitors are second to last and travel to The Lamex Stadium fully aware of their underdog status, which may mean they are willing to defend the scoreless draw. A point on the road would be regarded as a success by a team that haven’t won a match in regulation time in more than four months, so today’s match could be a rather torrid encounter for both sides.

Stevenage vs Macclesfield Town Betting Tips: Form Guide

Stevenage Lacking Consistency

Since the new League Two season started, Stevenage have alternated victories with draws and defeats. Today they play their third consecutive match at The Lamex Stadium with an eye on improving a rather average home record. The recent defeat at the hands of Cambridge came as a surprise, given it followed an inspiring victory over the Under 21 team from Swansea City. A starting formation with five defenders and only two strikers certainly didn’t help matters against Cambridge, so manager Maamri is likely ready to throw another striker into the mix.

Revell is their top scorer with two goals so far, and he will be joined up front by Newton and Reid, while Guthrie remains a worthy alternative. Playing attacking football against a team struggling to keep clean sheets makes perfect sense, and the signs suggest that Stevenage should be able to claim a rare home win. Their own backline leaves a lot to be desired, but they were — at least — able to keep a clean sheet in four of the last five matches. Stevenage vs Macclesfield match previews highlight the fact that there are no players missing because of injuries or suspension, so the hosts will almost certainly use their best starting XI in order to secure victory.

Macclesfield Lacking Ws

Macclesfield Town have had a very busy schedule in August and early September. In addition to the matches played in League Two, they were also involved in domestic cups and were able to advance in both competitions. What makes their performance truly amazing is the fact that they didn’t win any of these games in regulation time. Each time, they advanced courtesy of penalties — not a promising sign for their league fortunes. On the domestic front, Macclesfield continue to disappoint the fans and lost by three goals to nil in the last round.

The next League Cup match is likely to be the one that will send them crashing out from the competition, as they take on West Ham United. For the time being, they enjoy a simpler schedule, with matches every seven days, so Macclesfield can focus on improving their league position. Fatigue is a serious problem for this team, which doesn’t have enough depth to play highly competitive matches every three days. Summarily, our Stevenage vs Macclesfield betting tips for today are also based on the fact that the visitors are tired and won’t be able to maintain a consistent tempo for 90 minutes.

Stevenage vs Macclesfield Town Preview: Recent Meetings

The last time these two teams met was seven years ago when they were playing in League Two. Both matches were high-scoring ones, with a total of four goals scored, but Macclesfield still proved unable to secure victory at The Lamex Stadium. Last time these two played, they were were denied victory in the last minutes of the match and had to settle for one point at the end of the high-scoring draw.

Stevenage were far more pragmatic and, in the only match played on the road, they scored twice by halftime to claim victory by 4-0. Things should be even easier today when they play at home against the team sitting in the second to last place in the League Two tables. Due to all of these factors, our Stevenage vs Macclesfield Town prediction is fairly simple: the hosts will dominate the match from the first minute and will go on to win for the second time (at home) this season.

Stevenage vs Macclesfield Town Prediction: Stevenage to Nil

These are two teams that haven’t won consecutive matches in a long time, which could present a rather uneven affair for the fans in attenance. Both have alternated high-scoring matches with games in which they were defeated without scoring a goal, though the problems are arguably worse for Macclesfield, who are still searching for an 80-minute victory this season. We don’t expect them to push for a win on the road; instead, we believe they will try to protect the scoreless draw for as long as possible.

Our Stevenage vs Macclesfield Town betting tips favour the hosts, but we advise punters to also take the cover of the draw no bet. If Stevenage are to claim victory, there’s a high likelihood for them to do it by a single goal while keeping a clean sheet against a team that has lost every away match they have played this season. In addition, we expect the hosts will exercise constant pressure and wait for fatigue to kick in — which shouldn’t take long, given Macclesfield’s recently-packed fixture list.
