Swansea 4/5 to beat Bristol Rovers in Tuesday’s friendly matchup
Market: Swansea win
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on their bright run of form during pre-season, Swansea will make the trip to League One Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Bristol Rovers may have managed to avoid relegation from League One last season, they have once again struggled with their form during pre-season. Winning just 13 of their 46 domestic matchups last year they have also recorded just one victory in their three pre-season appearances so far, including a 2-1 defeat against Birmingham City at the Memorial Stadium last time out. Much like last season, a huge part of Bristol Rovers’ struggles has come down to their issues on home soil. Including their defeat last weekend, Tuesday’s hosts have lost three of their last five matches at home and have also won just two of their last seven matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Swansea may have failed to secure a play-off position last season, they are enjoying a very bright run during pre-season. The Whites have won each of their four consecutive matches during pre-season, including a 3-1 win away at Yeovil last weekend. Most impressive, while the Welsh side have failed to record a single clean sheet in any of their four pre-season appearances, they have scored 14 goals on that winning run and three or more goals in each of those victories. Along with now being unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions, it is worth noting that they have also won each of their last four matches on the road.
