Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by the Carabao Cup win over Rotherham, Salford City will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Exeter City in their League Two opener. The Lions can’t wait for the new season to begin as they are seen as No. 2 favourites to secure automatic promotion to League One. Salford City chiefs were very active in the summer transfer window, but the hosts can’t afford any complacency in Saturday’s showdown.
Exeter, on the other hand, failed to spoil Bristol City’s party at Ashton Gate Stadium in the opening match of their EFL Cup campaign, and It seem as if the Grecians have yet to recover from the heavy 4-0 loss to Northampton in the playoffs final. Anyhow, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Lions, who are eager to secure a top-three finish.
