Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Morecambe play host to Crewe at their Mazuma Stadium on day 25 of the new League One campaign. The Shrimps aim to put an end to their five-game winless run, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Both Ayunga and Diagouraga are pushing for a start after they came as substitutes in a goalless draw with Fleetwood.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the relegation zone with only 15 points in their pocket. Crewe are stuck at the bottom of the table, and given their anything but good display in a 2-0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. In the first half of the season Morecambe defeated Crewe 3-1.

Crewe Aleandra are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at Gresty Road. The stadium was built in 1906, and it can hold up to 10,153 spectators. Founded back in 1877, Crewe Alexandra play their home games in red shirts and white shorts, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Railwaymen played their first game against North Staffs in 1877, with the two teams sharing the spoils (1-1) at Alexandra Recreation Ground. Nowadays, Crewe compete in the League 2 where they take on their main rivals Port Vale. In 2014 a match between the two sides resulted in violence and arrests. The likes of Wrexham, Macclesfield Town, Shrewsbury Town, and Stoke City are considered the club’s rivals as well.
In 2013 Crewe Alexandra clinched the Football League Trophy as they defeated Southend United 2-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium. Goals from Max Clayton and Luke Murphy helped the Railwaymen clinch their first and only Football League Trophy.
