Edinburgh City will welcome Elgin City to Ainslie Park Stadium for a matchday 20 fixture in Scotland League Two. The last meeting on 23rd November 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twenty-two times in the most recent seasons. Edinburgh City has won 9 matches, and Elgin City triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.82 goals, while both teams score 55% of the time.

Edinburgh City's latest fixture against Cowdenbeath ended in an away 2-1 win. Edinburgh City was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Edinburgh City was much better than Cowdenbeath in the second half and scored in the 51st and 83rd minute.

Elgin City's recent game against Forfar Athletic ended in a home 1-0 win. The Black & Whites dominated the game and deserved the win. Elgin City deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 90+3th minute.

So far, Edinburgh City plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.50 points per away game on average compared to 1.20 points at home. Although Edinburgh City is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.

Elgin City has picked up 9 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Elgin City wins 0.80 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Elgin City kept a clean sheet in just 10% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Edinburgh City or Elgin City to win.
