Troyes v Montpellier (Over 1.5 goals)
Bet 1 strolled in fairly comfortably yesterday as my old pals Ham-Kam did their bit and goals were done at Bolton within the first 30 minutes.
Onto Bet 2 we go then where we start proceedings in the 2pm kick off between Troyes and Montpellier in Ligue 1.
A couple of goals is what we are after in this one and any fixture that involves Montpellier is unlikely to let you down on that front.
Very much Like last season, they continue to be prolific in front of goal demonstrated by the fact that before the weekend’s fixtures only PSG have scored more than the 11 goals they have notched this season.
They are absolutely stacked with attacking talent with the likes of Gaetan Laborde, Stephy Mavididi and Andy Delort are regular scorers at this level and the attacking trio are all tipped for involvement here.
It is at the other end where the problems exist with the visitors conceding 9 goals in just 5 league games and keeping just one clean sheet so far this season.
They are without multiple key defensive players too this afternoon. Number 1 goalkeeper Jonas Omlin is injured as are first choice defenders Mamadou Sakho, Pedro Mendes and Ambroise Oyongo.
Troyes meanwhile have made a reasonable start in their first Ligue 1 campaign since the 2017-18 edition after they won Ligue 2 last season. They will arrive this afternoon with plenty of confidence after winning their first league game of the season last weekend against Metz.
Like their visitors, goals are a regular fixture in their matches with each of their last 10 matches featuring 2+ goals. Not as impressive as Montpeiller though who have seen it feature in 18 of their last 20 prior to today.
Viking v Bodo (Over 2.5 goals)
I think many of my loyal followers may have I guessed where I might be going for the second part of bet 2. It is of course to Norway and the wonderful Eliteserien where Viking take on Bodo in a big game towards the top end of the table.
Viking are absolutely bonkers and are the league’s number one side for goals. They average a massive 3.89 goals per game and have seen over 2.5 goals deliver in 15 of their 18 fixtures this season. An incredible 83% success rate.
They are a side full of goals and offensively have shown they are capable of competing with the likes of Bodo and Molde at the top end of the league. The 36 they have scored so far this season can only be bettered by 4 teams in the division.
It is at the other end where the problems exist and is the main reason why they aren’t higher up the league. Despite sitting 6th, they have conceded a massive 34 goals which is incredibly the third worst defensive record in the division.
To put that into further context, only the bottom two of Stabaek and Brann actually have worse defensive records than Viking do. So you can probably see why they are such a reliable selection for goals!
Bodo probably don’t need as much explanation as to why I like them for goals. They of of course won the Norwegian league last season for the first time in their history scoring a ridiculous 103 goals in the process.
Now, they are not quite as prolific this season but are still averaging a very healthy 3.06 GPG. The last 5 meetings between these two has featured over 2.5 goals and I can’t see this one making us slip off the ladder this afternoon!
