A decent start to the season – 1/2 yesterday, with Ferencvaros running out of time in their pursuit of a winner, drawing 1-1 in a game we backed to be a win. The other ended 3-1, with BTTS + Over 2.5 the tip. Looked doubtful at HT, but Rosenborg scored 3 in the first 20 minutes of the half, while Norrkoping bagged a late consolation for a 21/20 winner.
A double for today’s Europa League action:
Sonderjyske vs Stromsgodset: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/5 (1800 KO – NAP)
Both of these are high scoring sides, who also have a weakness at the back – that is what I look for in this market of betting!
Last season, Sonderjyske scored 56 in 33, and conceded 36. That’s over 1.5 per game scoring, and over 1.1 conceding. Perfect.
Stromsgodset are in the middle of their season – and 15 games in they have scored 29 and conceded 19, 48 total and over 3 goals per game on the averages.
Looking at recent form – both have scored in all or as close as all of their last 10 (10/10 for Stromsgodset, 9/10 for Sonderjyske) while both have conceded in most of them, friendly or league.
KR Reykjavik vs Grasshoppers Zurich: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (2015 KO)
This should be quite a good game! Reykjavik play in the Icelandic league, which is in the early stages of the season, but they have started poorly. 8 scored and 11 conceded in 10 games – doesn’t sound too promising. Grasshoppers though are defensively poor – last season they scored 65 but conceded 56, in a 36 game season! 121 goals is incredible, and in this market you would have struggled to get them over about 5/6!
Home advantage should play a part, but I expect it to be a very open game, two teams capable of scoring plenty and conceding even more…
As a double, it pays around 4/1.
Best of luck
