Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Rochdale and Stockport go head to head at Spotland Stadium in the first round of the FA Cup. Rochdale were eliminated by Premier League side Newcastle United in the last edition of the prestigious cup competition, but they are surely capable of matching Stockport at home ground. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Matthew Lund, who has netted five goals in the League One so far this term.
Stockport, on the other hand, did well to crush Chesterfield 4-0 in the FA Cup qualification final, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash. The National League side have played some high-scoring games in the 2020/21 season, and seeing that 19 goals in total have been netted in the previous four meetings between two clubs, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered.
