Alanyaspor vs Fatih Karagumruk
Kragumruk are the kings of goals and have dominated my overview posts in recent weeks. Their matches average a ridiculous 4.17 goals, the highest of any side i’ve covered who play today.
They also see themselves rank top for BTTS (78%) and their games have had that same number for over 2.5 goals.
Their opponent are no slouches either and made an appearance in the average goals section of the overview; averaging 3.39.
This should be an end to end game. Karagumruk simply can’t defend, they average above 2 xGA P/90.
Leeds vs Brentford
This looks a belter. Brentford are bang in form. Leeds are fresh off the back of a 5-2 cup win and not only are players returning from injury; such as Bamford – they’ve got new hope in the brilliant form of Wilfried Gnonto.
Brentford ranked joint 3rd for over 1.5 goals in my overview, with an 89% strike rate. Leeds have had the selection land in 78% of the game.
Both sides made the overview for average goals (3.28 and 3.17) and Leeds have a 67% hit rate for BTTS.
With Leeds now having numerous key players back to fitness, Marsche will be hoping the tide can turn. The Bees though, know that this is a very winnable game and they can continue their excellent recent form.
Elche vs Osasuna
Elche are in dreadful form and headed the overview post for their current poor run. They’ve managed just 5 points all season and are routed to the bottom of the table.
Osasuna on the other hand are having a very good season, they’re just 1 point outside the European places and just knocked Betis out of the Copa Del Rey. Feel good factor is at a serious high right now.
They’re far from the most devastating side on the road. They’re not massive scorers but they are solid in defence. I can’t see them leaving this one with a defeat, draw no bet provides us that added sfaety.
AZ Alkmaar vs Fortuna Sittard
Sittard made their appearance in the worst form list too with them having won just 1 of their last 6 games.
They’re just 4 points above the drop zone and I’m surprised that Alkmaar aren’t even shorter to win this.
They’re a very strong side and are currently 2nd in the table. This is a massive opportunity too, given that Feyenoord and Ajax (1st and 3rd) play one another.
They average a very strong xGA and restrict their opponents to very few chances.
Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen
This game looks absolutely bonkers, with both sides making it in to the average goals section of my overview with averages of 3.47 and 3.40 respectively.
I’m buzzing to have the Bundesliga back, it’s a fantastic league for goals. Both these sides have a huge 73% hit rate for over 2.5 goals and between them, they’ve had just a single 0-0 this season.
Leverkusen finally righted some wrongs before the break and looked far more like themselves.
Just 1 of the last 6 H2H meetings has seen under 2.5 goals.
