Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bristol Rovers and Forest Green go head to head at Memorial Stadium in what is expected to be an exciting League One game. Bristol Rovers were having their ups and downs in pre-season, with the team beating both Melksham and Stoke City, while losing to both Swansea and Bath. The Pirates are tough to beat at home, but they face a difficult task in the opening match of the season. New signings John Marquis and James Gibbons are ready for their debuts, while Jon Nolan, Sam Nicholson, Cian Harries, Ollie Hulbert, Brett Pitman, and Cameron Hargreaves are no longer parts of the team.
The Green Army, on the other hand, impressed in the League Two last term, but they do not want to stop now. Since Forest Green are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in the season opener, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The club chiefs did well to keep hold of key attackers from last season Jamille Matt and Matthew Stevens.
