Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sands Venue Stadium will host the League Two season opener between Scunthorpe United and Newport County. Scunthorpe finished the last season in the 20th position in the standings, but they are widely expected to sit in the middle of the table this time out. The Iron’s defence looked pretty shaky in the Carabao Cup defeat (1-2) to Port Vale, which is probably the main reason why home victory should not be considered.
The Exiles, on the other hand, defeated Swansea in their first game following the coronavirus football break. Newport impressed in their EFL Cup opener, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for Scunthorpe behind closed doors. In the previous two meetings between the two teams in League Two the Exiles emerged triumphant, and we do not believe that the Iron are capable of putting an end to the negative trend.
