Our prediction for this Scottish League Cup match:
Thanks to a brilliant 3-0 win over Elgin City, Arbroath booked their place in the Scotland League Cup last 16. Arbroath made a slow start to the new Championship campaign, with the team collecting only two points from possible 15. The hosts are desperate to give fans some cheer, but bookies see them as underdogs in Saturday’s football match. Dunfermline, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team retaining top position in the Championship table thanks to a 2-1 over fellow promotion-chasing Hearts.
The Pars have big ambitions for the League Cup as well, and given Arbroath’s anything but excellent start to the season, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous four meetings in all competitions.
