Football Tips // 07.04.16


Yet another day of 1/2’s – the NAP won for the 3rd day in a row, with Ferencvaros winning 5-2 after being 2-0 up, hauled back to 2-2 and then pulled away in style against 10 men. In the other game, possibly the shock of the competition so far – Wolfsburg taking Real Madrid apart in a 2-0 win, which buggered my double!

Onto today – and two BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals tips in a 5/1 double:

Lyngby vs Silkeborg: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 11/8 (Danish Bet25 Liga – 1700 KO, NAP)

Lyngby @ Home: Won 9, Drawn 3 – Scored 25, conceded 11.

Silkeborg @ Away: Won 5, Drawn 4, Lost 2 – scored 18, conceded 13.

Both in very good form, with Lyngby unbeaten at home this season, while Silkeborg have lost just twice away from home. They have also won 5 of their last 6 as well as scoring 15 in their last 7. They have conceded in 8 of their last 10, and look a huge threat going forward, but can’t defend. Lyngby are good at the back, but might not be able to withstand Silkeborg this time around.

In the last 5 meets, 3 have ended 3-1, 3-2 and 2-1. For me, this should be a great little game!

Braga vs Shakhtar: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 8/5 (Europa League, 2005 KO)

As mentioned in the now defunct midweek accumulator, I mentioned that Braga had scored 27 in their last 10 home games, while conceding in 6 of their last 10. Shakhtar on the other hand have just disposed of Schalke, which is a great result. They are very attack minded and scored 8 on the weekend!

This one is a little risky, but Braga have a good record for this market, with 4-1 and 2-2 results in their last two Europa home games against Fenerbache and Sion  I think both will want the lead going into the 2nd leg, and for me both should go for it! These games can be hit and miss – either brilliant and full of goals, or boring as hell. Expecting the latter.

As mentioned, the double pay just over 5/1.

Best of luck
