Bitesize Prediction: Airdrieonians vs Falkirk – 09/05/23
Competition: Scottish Championship
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Two sides who will be desperate to claim a first-leg advantage on Tuesday night, Airdrieonians will welcome Falkirk to the Excelsior Stadium for what could be a lively showdown.
Starting with the hosts, while Airdrieonians might have been left heartbroken last season as they missed out on the chance to secure a Championship promotion, the Diamonds have continued on yet another League One romp this season. Despite signing off their regular-season run by mustering just a single win from their final four appearances, they did claim what was a crucial boost last time out. Putting in a rampant display away at FC Edinburgh as they picked up some perfect momentum thanks to a 4-1 romp, Rhys McCabe’s men have also enjoyed a rich run of form in the final third. On a run that is highlighted by a stellar 7-0 victory against Peterhead back on March 18th, neutrals could be treated to another thriller on Tuesday night. It should be noted, Airdrieonians have seen each of their last four League One battles finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, storming their way to a play-off spot this season, Falkirk have arguably been League One’s surprise package. However, although John McGlynn’s side might have eventually clawed their way to a silver medal finish, they have shown some extended issues over the past few months. Although the Bairns might have made an essential return to winning ways last time out as they secured a 3-1 victory against Peterhead, the one-time Livingston boss has seen his side muster just a trio of wins from their last 10 appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to March 13th. Likewise, failing to record a single clean sheet from any of their last seven straight outings, chances could come thick and fast here. With the two sides playing out a lively 2-2 draw when they last met on April 15th, we are backing both teams to find the net here.
Bet: Both teams to score at Airdrieonians vs Falkirk 4/6 for Tuesday’s Scottish Championship showdown @ 888sport
