We pick through the list of odds and stats for the weekend matches. This weekend every single tip is for Both Teams to Score in European matches.
Both sides have scored in five of Burnley’s last seven matches in the Premier League, including in a 2-2 draw at Manchester United on Tuesday. Similarly, Southampton have scored and conceded in eight of their last ten league games, a clear indication of the shift in style since the arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl in December. These sides played out a 1-1 draw last season at Turf Moor, and fans might find it easy to expect Goals Galore this time.
Eight of Inverness’ past ten matches in the Scottish Championship have seen both teams score. This has also been true of eight of their 11 home league games this season. Both teams have scored in four of Partick Thistle’s last five league games, as well as in two of their last three meetings with the hosts. Could a repeat be in store this weekend?
Both teams have been on the scoresheet in nine of the last ten Eredivisie matches involving Vitesse Arnhem, with the same occurring in seven of their nine home games this season. Their opponents Heerenveen have had similar experience this season. Both teams have scored in seven of their last ten league games, as well as seven of their ten away matches in the Eredivisie this season. Both they and Vitesse have found the net in four of their last five clashes too. It’s hard to see a different outcome this time.
Eight of Augburg’s nine home league games this season have featured goals at both ends, as have seven of their last ten Bundesliga matches overall. Likewise, both teams have scored in nine of Mainz’s last ten league games, including each of the last six. These sides have already met twice this season, with no clean sheets in either game. Considering the recent form, the odds look tempting.
There have been goals at both ends in four of Standard Liege’s last five league games. However, their record this season pales in comparison to Anderlecht’s. Both sides have scored in 16 of the visitors’ 23 league games this season (only Zulte-Waregem have seen more), including in nine of their 11 away matches. All of the last four matches between these sides have seen both on the scoresheet. Unless both Standard and Anderlecht drastically change their style, we should see the same here.
