Keep It Tight
Want to know which teams are table toppers when it comes to backing a total of under 2.5 goals? We have got the inside edge before the weekend’s continental action.
We’ve put together three games, one each day from Friday until Sunday, that pays out 5/1 with bet365.
Genoa v Torino – Friday 8pm
We go to Italy and the fascinating story of Genoa. One that has seen them go 26 Serie A outings without a win and during that rather unwanted streak, they have drawn each of their last seven encounters.
Add the fact that they have only won once all season, while also drawing a staggering 16 out of 29 and currently find themselves second bottom before tonight’s clash with Torino. Something that surely points to a lack of goals in just a few hours.
Throw opponents Torino into the equation and of the 28 Serie A outings they have appeared in this season, 16 of those have ended up with under 2.5 total goals being recorded. A statistic that adds more credence to goals being in short supply.
There is no doubt that Genoa are hard to beat, but they lack absolutely nothing in terms of cutting edge right now and although just a second league win of the season is not outside the realm of possibility at 11/5 – if only because all runs must end at some point, it is goals which is our focus.
No more than two, that is our desire for later and if you think that will also be the case, you can join in me backing a rather drab affair at the birthplace of Christopher Columbus at odds of 4/7 with Bet365.
Mainz v Arminia Bielefeld – Saturday 2:30pm
When looking at the under 2.5 stats in the Bundesliga, it is Arminia Bielefeld that are not having the best of luck this season and from the 26 encounters that they have contested this season, only eight of them have collectively reached that magic marker of three goals or more.
Which means the entertainment factor has been rather low at the Bielefelder Alm this season and for those who are looking for lesser goals this weekend, a watchful eye on Frank Kramer’s men comes recommended.
Especially as the Die Arminen travel to mid-table Mainz this weekend and with Saturday’s hosts losing ground in the race for a European place next season, there is a feeling that their campaign has now all but ended.
With back-to-back defeats to their name, league form has escaped them at just the wrong time and another thing to consider, is that of the 25 Bundesliga matches they have played thus far, nearly half have ended with under 2.5 goals.
Knowledge that will be of extra use when pouring through the European coupons and if you think no more than two goals will be scored at the MEWA Arena, you can back this outcome at odds of 4/6 with bet365.
Sevilla v Real Sociedad – Sunday 5:30pm
With Sevilla being dumped out of the Europa League by West Ham on Thursday, it means that Julen Lopetegui will not be able to win the trophy on home soil and with that being a bitter disappointment, he will now have to hope that the season does not fizzle out in front of him.
Admittedly Sevilla are almost guaranteed to finish second in LaLiga and although that will earn another invite to the Champions League, there is always going to be a sense of what could have been.
While what could have been, is a seventh success in the Europa League and after suffering such a hammer blow in midweek, they must now switch their focus to the visit of Real Sociedad on Sunday evening.
Which is music to the ears of those who like an under 2.5 bet and with the hosts having played in 28 LaLiga outings this season, 71% (20) have ended with two goals or less. A figure that is only trumped by Real Sociedad themselves with 75% (21)
Therefore, the logic here would be for the two forces to cancel each other out and for there to be a low scoring affair at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. If that proves to be the case, bet365 are ready to reward you with odds of 13/10.
