A poor day all-round yesterday with the Rovaniemi game ending 0-0 thanks to 2 red cards for the away team – meaning they basically clung on to the point for dear life! In the Aktobe game, another 0-0’er – both never looked like scoring quite frankly. Apologies for that…a better duo lined up for today:
Emmen vs Almere: Almere Draw No Bet @ 6/5 (Dutch Erste – Playoff, 1730 KO)
This is one of the two that won handsomely on Monday evening – Almere winning 4-1. This is the 2nd leg, and for me Emmen will have a hard time overturning a 3 goal deficit. This means they will be all-guns blazing from the off, and with that in mind I think that Almere will pick them off with ease.
Form wise, Almere have won 7, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 10 away games – with Emmen winning 6 and losing 4 of their 10 most recent home games. Last 3 results between them: 4-1 (Monday), 6-5 and 4-0. All to Almere. 21/10 is a huge price for the win, with DNB @ 6/5 a steal!
Zilina vs Skalica: Zilina -1 Goal Handicap @ 1/1 (Slovakian Super Liga, 1900 KO)
This is terrific value! Zilina are chasing down the final Europa League qualifying spot, 3 points ahead of them with 3 to play. Skalica are pretty much dead and burried – going back down to the 2nd tier. Their away form is something out of the Aston Villa handbook – 12 losses in their 15 away games, conceding 39 goals!
Zilina won the league last season, and suffered because of it – and a Europa League campaign that ended up with them playing the likes of Bilbao in the group phase. They have won 9 of 16 home games – and scored 39 goals! This is Zilina’s easiest game left, so a big win is a must!
As a double this pays around 3.4/1
Best of luck
