Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Liverpool v Ajax (Tuesday 20:00 GMT)
One thing you are almost always guaranteed to see when Liverpool play is goals – only one of their last 28 competitive fixtures have ended 0-0. So goals are almost certainly on the cards when they face Ajax on Tuesday night, but how many will we see? The previous meeting between these two clubs produced just one solitary strike, but I suspect we will see more here.
Liverpool have really been struggling for clean sheets recently and Ajax have been having no problems hitting the back of the net, but I am expecting a home victory so I have to go with Over 1.5 Goals here. The return is poor though, so I recommend backing Liverpool to win & over 2 goals. This has been a winning bet on 17 of their last 19 competitive victories – that is a trend that cannot be ignored!
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Hertha Berlin v Union Berlin (Friday 19:30 GMT)
Union Berlin have seen their share of thrillers and it’s difficult to expect anything on Friday evening. They’ve shared the spoils with Eintracht Frankfurt (3-3) in a six-goal thriller and saw their three-match winning streak ended, after beating Hoffenheim (1-3), Arminia Bielefeld (5-0), and Koln (1-2). Urs Fischer’s men will want to bounce again but could be in for a tough task at Olympiastadion.
Hertha come into the match after earning a point in two tough games since the International break. They were beaten by Borussia Dortmund (2-5) but held off Bayer Leverkusen (0-0), as Die Alte Dame look to escape the danger zone. We have seen them scoring goals on the regular and we do hope for another great derby day here, going for a narrow occasion between the sides this time around.
Over 1.5 Goals Predictions & Tips: Athletic Bilbao v Celta Vigo (Friday 20:00 GMT)
Athletic Bilbao host Celta Vigo for their Matchday 12 clash on Friday evening, looking for their fourth home win in a row. They haven’t been able to retain such consistency on the road but will be happy to finally return unbeaten, after holding Getafe to a 1-1 draw last week. They had troubles at the back but will now be very motivated to outgun the struggling rivals, as we head into an exciting game in the making.
Celta Vigo sit in the relegation zone and have seen a troubled run which saw Oscar Garcia sacked finally end, beating Granada (3-1) to earn their only second win this term. They struggled at the back and were seen all over the place on some occasions. With that in mind, we feel there’s still a lot of work to be done and we don’t feel they have what it takes to snatch the points here.
