Coventry and Northampton meets in the 1st match of English Cup tournament EFL on Wednesday 11 August 2021 year. The hosts beat Nottingham in the Championship and the guests won 1-0 over Port Vale in League 2, so both teams have won their leagues and will now try to please their fans in the EFL Cup match.
Simon Moore, Jan Marsen and Marting Waghorn made their debut in the victory over Nottingham, and it is quite possible that the coach will rely on them in the cup match. Coventry is definitely a favorite in the match, but we still know that sometimes there are surprises in the cup matches, as it also matters whether the coach and management have set a tournament as a priority or will mainly bet on a good ranking in the championship. . In general, the rebounds in England play for the cups, so I guess Coventry and Northampton will not underestimate the match.
Northampton have been relegated from Ligue 1 to Ligue 2, with the coach taking on 12 new players, some of whom have been hired, such as Kion Etete, who was on the bench for the match with Port Vale but can now start as a starter in the cup match.
Estimated composition Coventry:
Wilson; Dabo, Pask, Hyam; Rose, Hamer, Sheaf, Shipley, Jones; Walker, Gyokeres
Roberts; McGowan, Guthrie, Horsfall, Koiki; McWilliams, Flores; Pinnock, Connolly; Kabamba, Rose
Prediction – over 2.5 – 1.816 from 22bet
