Following on from my European theme from last weekend, there is plenty of value to be had in the both teams to score market from all around the continent this weekend and I have done my best to pick just the very best matches in which I think both teams will bag a goal or two.
Germany seems to be the place to get regular high scoring goals, and that’s where two of my tips come from for this Saturday:
Get started with Bet365
Schalke v Bayern Munich 2.30pm 8/13 Stan James
This game is absolutely screaming out to be backed. Bayern Munich have made a perfect start to the season by taking maximum points from their first 3 games, with 12 goals scored and just 3 conceded.
Schalke are also unbeaten, and can be relied upon to score at home. They’ve scored at least once in each of their last 15 Bundesliga games at the Veltins-Arena, and while Bayern are a tough nut to crack, I’m predicting a scoreline of 1-3 which would be perfect for the bet.
Real Betis v Espanyol 7.00pm 4/5 Bet365
Another clash that has the makings of a goalfest. Real Betis have scored and conceded in 6 of their last 7 games, and a 5-3 away win over Athletic Bilbao last month suggests that they are more than capable of scoring and shipping goals.
Espanyol will be disappointed with their overall performance so far this season; they have collected just 1 point in their opening 4 games. However, they have scored and conceded in every game so far, and the Betis defence hardly looks watertight at this early stage.
Wolfsburg v Greuther Furth 2.30pm 4/5 Bet365
Greuther Furth are far from having their own way in the top flight after promotion last season from the second tier, but they have faced a couple of very tough opponents in the form of Schalke and Bayern Munich (0-2 and 3-0 respectively), but things should improve when they visit Wolfsburg, at least from a goalscoring point of view.
Wolfsburg were beaten 4-0 at home by rampant Hannover in their last appearance at the VW Arena, and while such a beating is not expected at the hands of Furth, the least I expect is both teams to score here.
