Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The Lamex Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Stevenage and Crewe Alexandra, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the standings ahead of Matchday 22. Stevenage are determined to escape the relegation zone, but they will have a big fish to fry in the clash against the promotion-chasing team. The relegation strugglers have been impressive at the back of late, but you should know that they failed to find the net in three of their last four league fixtures.
Anyhow, a low-scoring affair is on the cards as there have been under 2.5 goals in each of Stevenage’s last seven league fixtures. Crewe Alexandra, on the other hand, shared the spoils with the likes of Forest Green (0-0) and Mansfield Town in the last two league matches, which is yet another reason why under 2.5 goals bet should be considered.
Highlighted Team (Crewe):
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.
