The Dutch Jupiler League shows no signs of slowing down with it’s net bursting action, and it remains the highest scoring league in Europe with a huge 66.3% of games containing over 2.5 goals. When compared to the Argentinian Premier League which has just 37% over 2.5, you realise the magnitude of the statistics! Well here are my best picks for tonight’s games.
FC Oss v Willem II 7.00pm
Oss really know how to conceded goals, and their opponents Willem II will feel they should score at least a couple of goals in their current form.
Willem have scored 12 goals in their 5 games so far this month, including a 5-0 win over struggling Emmen and a fantastic 3-1 away win over Go Ahead Eagles.
Oss have conceded 21 goals in their last 7 games, an average of 3 goals per game. This stat is fantastic, but the fact is that Oss can score plenty of goals too. They have scored at least once in 92% of their home games, making this game stick out like a sore thumb for over 2.5 goals.
Volendam v Almere City 7.00pm
Another game here that looks certain to contain plenty of goals…at least on paper.
Volendam score an average of 2.16 goals at home, but let in an average of 1.57 goals, making an average of 3.73 goals per game!
Almere City have been involved in plenty of high scoring games this season, and 6 of their last 7 matches have contained over 2.5 goals. Their season record for overs is very high, 71.4%.
The reverse fixture finished 2-1 to today’s visitors, and at least another 3 goals look likely here.
AGOVV v MVV Maastricht 7.00pm
If you were to look at stats alone then this just has to be a choice for over 2.5 goals. AGOVV have conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 26 games this season, and 75% of their games have contained 3 goals or more.
MVV have scored 15 goals in their last 6 games, and been defeated only once which stands them in good stead to score plenty of goals here against an AGOVV team that have conceded a whopping 34 home goals in 14 games.
The reverse fixture finished 2-2 and there is every reason to believe this game will contain the same amount, if not more goals.
