Edinburgh City will welcome Stirling Albion to Ainslie Park Stadium for a matchday 25 fixture in Scotland League Two. The last meeting on 20th November 2021 ended in a Edinburgh City 2-1 win. Both sides have met twenty times in the most recent seasons. Edinburgh City has won 8 matches, and Stirling Albion triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.10 goals, while both teams score 40% of the time.
Edinburgh City’s latest fixture against Stranraer ended in an away 2-0 win. Edinburgh City was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Edinburgh City scored in both halves in the 2nd and 74th minute.
Stirling Albion’s previous game in the competition versus Annan Athletic ended in an away 0-0 draw. Their attackers wasted a lot of good goal-scoring opportunities, so the draw was deserved.
So far, Edinburgh City plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.75 points per away game on average compared to 1.20 points at home. Although Edinburgh City is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.
Stirling Albion has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Stirling Albion has collected 1.33 points on average per away game, compared to 1.00 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Stirling Albion kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Edinburgh City or Stirling Albion to win.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Friday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 46% of Edinburgh City’s home and Stirling Albion’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
