Grimsby Town vs. Solihull Moors Prediction, Tips & Odds – Jun. 5, 2022 16:00 CET
The playoff final in National League will be played on Sunday at London Stadium. The winner of this match will be promoted to League Two.
The Mariners were relegated from League Two last season. They were one of the favorites for the promotion before the season was started and they were the league leader until November. But, because of the bad run during the winter Grimsby slipped to 10th place at the end of January. Good form from February until the end of the season secured them a 6th place finish.
In the playoffs, they made two big surprises. They beat Notts County away from home and one of the biggest favorites for promotion Wrexham, also away from home.
Grimsby is very good after set-pieces and they scored one goal against Notts County and four against Wrexham after set-pieces. They are in a very good run and they suffered only one defeat in the last 12 games. John McAtee is Grimsby’s top scorer with 15 league goals.

Solihull never played in League Two. This club is formed in 2007. They started in the sixth tier and since 2016 they are in National League, the fifth tier. This is the second time that they are participating in the playoffs. Three years ago they are defeated in the semi-final.
Solihull played very well for the major part of the season and they are always in the top 7. They finished in 3rd place and because of that they skipped the quarter-final and goes straight to the semis where they beat Chesterfield at home 3-1. They are in good form with six consecutive wins and they scored 18 goals in that run, which is three goals per game.
That is the major strength of this team. They have a very good attack with 83 goals scored and only Wrexham and Stockport scored more this season in National League. They failed to score in only 10 games this season and their top scorers are Andrew Dallas with 20 and Joe Sbarra with 18 goals.

Grimsby Town vs Solihull Moors Prediction
In every final the stake is huge. This time will be no different. It’s another world for every club in England if you are playing in League Two or National League. Professional or semi-professional football. With Bradford, Swindon, and Mansfield or with Maidenhead, Gateshead, or Eastleigh.
Because of that, both teams want to win this game. About 20.000 tickets are sold for now and Grimsby sold three times more than Solihull.
Both teams show us that can play very entertaining football with a lot of goals and once again we expect the same.
Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
