Both of yesterday’s tips won – to varying degree’s of difficulty. In the first, Trabzon-Denizlispor – it was 1-0 after 80 minutes with a goal chalked off for offside to add to it, however with it being basically a relegation match between two sides scrapping for safety – caution was thrown to the wind by the losing side, and thanks to the keeper coming up for a corner, the 3rd goal went in in the 95th minute, with the last kick of the game!
In the other, Konyaspor won with relative ease in a 2-0 victory.
Today – a 3.4/1 double:
Austria Klagenfurt vs St Polten: St Polten -1 Goal Handicap @ 6/5 (Austrian Erste, 1730 KO)
The league campaign is into it’s final few games now, and with St Polten 3 points ahead of the next placed side – they need to carry on winning as I don’t think LASK will let up at all. They are in great form, especially away – 12 wins from 16 games, including 8 in the last 10 and multiple of those by at least 2 goals!
Klagenfurt are pretty much safe, so for me I don’t think there will be a great deal of fight from them. They have lost 6 in a row at home, which accounts for 75% of their losses at home this season! Given the circumstances, it should be a routine win for St Polten.
Fakel Voronezh vs Zenit II: Voronezh Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1/1 (Russian 1st Division, 1700 KO)
This should be an interesting game – both are in good form, and the last two meets have been 4-1 and 4-2 wins for the team we are backing here today. Zenit though have scored 56 and conceded 51 this season, but are hit and miss. Often brilliant – defeating Arsenal Tula and Tom Tomsk (two of the best in this league) and then losing to some of the weaker sides. I guess a lot depends if they are given any of Zenit’s 1st team players to use that are not playing for the Premier Division’s team.
The situation with this game is that Voronezh need to win to stand any chance of catching the teams above as the current 4th placed side (and last playoff spot) is occupied by Spartak’s 2nd team, who can’t go up. That means that Fakel have a great chance if they win their remaining 3 games. Given previous games between them, I think Voronezh will come out on top, though BTTS + Over 2.5 tempting @ 7/5.
Best of luck
