Tranmere 2/1 to beat Crewe in Tuesday’s EFL Trophy battle
Competition: EFL Trophy
Market: Tranmere win
Odds: 2/1 @ 888sport
Meeting for the second time in the space of a few days on Tuesday night, Crewe will host Tranmere on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a worrying defeat away at Tuesday’s opponents, Crewe have largely struggled to find much stability. In their opening 13 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, five draws and four defeats, scoring 13 and conceding 15 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 17, they currently find themselves sat 13th in the fourth-tier standings and four points adrift of finding a route into the top-half. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 3-0 drumming away at Tranmere, Crewe have now managed to pick up just a single point from any of their previous 10 matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to the middle of August. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, the midweek hosts have collected one win from any of their last five contests on home soil.
As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a real purple patch, Tranmere will be looking to lay down another marker here. In their opening 13 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, one draw and five defeats, scoring 16 and conceding nine in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 22, they currently find themselves sat ninth in the standings and just two points adrift of breaking into the play-off places. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a thumping 3-0 victory at home against Tuesday’s opponents, Tranmere have won six of their previous seven contests across all formats, a run that stems back to the middle of September. Given the huge recent gulf in class between the midweek opponents, we’re backing a similar outcome from their meeting a few days ago.
