Stevenage will welcome Walsall to The Lamex Stadium for a matchday 26 fixture in England EFL League Two. The last meeting on 28th August 2021 ended in a Walsall 1-0 win. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. Stevenage has won 2 matches, and Walsall triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.00 goals, while both teams score 60% of the time.

Stevenage's latest fixture against Forest Green Rovers ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from Stevenage. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Walsall's recent game against Newport County ended in a home 3-3 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn't enough to win three points. Walsall pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 53rd, 65th and 90+5 minute.

Since the start of the season, Stevenage is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 14 games on home soil. Although Stevenage 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 29% home clean sheets.

Walsall has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Walsall wins 1.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Walsall kept a clean sheet in just 25% 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 Draw or Walsall.

Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 29% of Stevenage's home and Walsall's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
