  • Betis – Girona

    Betis were unlucky to lose against Real Madrid in previous round. They outplayed the current Champions League holders and offered a fine overall performance in front of the home crowd, but came out of it empty-handed. The visitors are winless in past seven games across competitions but they will still enter this in high spirits following the Atletico Madrid scalp in Copa del Rey.

    Betis have scored 1 goal or more in 9 La Liga games in a row
    Betis have seen both teams scoring in 5 of their last 6 games

    Girona have scored at least 1 goal in their last 5 games
    Girona have seen both teams scoring in their last 5 games
    Girona have conceded at least once in 10 games in a row

  • Brighton – Arsenal

    Brighton have lost just 2 home games all season, and both ended as narrow 2-1 losses to Spurs and Chelsea. Arsenal’s defense have looked a shambolic outfit at times, and they have conceded in every one of their Premier League away games. We believe this will be a tight match, with both teams finding the net. Stats: Brighton scored in ALL their HOME games Brighton scored FIRST in 5 out of 8 HOME games Brighton scored 8 out of 13 HOME goals in the first half Brighton scored 13 HOME goals with 25 shots on target (Top of the league) Arsenal scored in ALL their AWAY games Arsenal scored FIRST in 5 out of 8 AWAY games Arsenal scored 13 out of 20 AWAY goals in the second half The trade is built around goals at both ends of the pitch. Where Brighton have a decent home record, we believe Arsenal will take the victory home.

  • Arsenal vs Burnley

    The Gunner’s excellent 22 game unbeaten streak came to end last weekend as they unexpected lost at Southampton. On top of that another defeat followed mid-week in the North London League Carabao Cup derby against Tottenham. Burnley shouldn’t pose too much of a threat, having failed to score 6 times out of 9 Premier League away games. Stats: Arsenal scored in 8 out of 9 HOME games. Arsenal scored 14 out of 17 HOME goals in the second half. Arsenal scored once or more in 26 of their last 27 EPL matches Arsenal conceded at least once in 9 of their last 10 EPL matches Arsenal saw both teams scoring in 9 of their last 10 EPL matches Burnley haven’t won in 23 of their last 26 matches Burnley have failed to score in 7 of their last 10 AWAY EPL matches The trade is built around a comfortable Arsenal win. Arsenal dominated this match-up over the course of history, and most likely Sean Dyche will park the bus once again here, just as he did against Tottenham with a five-man defense. Trade: HT/FT BUR/ARS 2 pts 3-0 3 pts UNDER 2.5 4 pts Join our experts in the FEF trading console and see how In-Play trading is done. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
  • Heerenveen – Utrecht

    Interesting clash in the Dutch Eredivisie. History shows plenty of goals on both sides, with Utrecht having only 1 defeat in their last 10 matches against Heerenveen. Stats: – Heerenveen have scored 5 of their 12 home goals in the First Half. – Heerenveen have conceded 1 goal or more in 27 of their last 29 matches – Utrecht only won 1 out of their 7 games on the road (3 losses, 3 draws) – Utrecht have only scored 1 of their 7 away goals in the First Half. The trade is built around goals on both sides. Heerenveen seem to get their act together after a rusty start of the season, where Utrecht is flying high, but are struggling on the road. – HT/FT HEE/UTR 2 pts – 2-2 3 pts – Heerenveen Win 5 pts
  • Heracles vs PSV

    Heracles is a different team at home compared to their travels. Possibly their artificial turf plays a big role in this. This season, Heracles only lost once in front of their own fans (against Feyenoord), scoring 21 goals (3rd best in the Eredivisie). PSV lost their last away match against Feyenoord. In 7 games on the road, PSV scored 20 goals and conceded 6. PSV played Inter away mid-week in the Champions League and brought a point back to Eindhoven. Previously, this had no impact in PSV’s performance the weekend after, including a 3-0 victory against Ajax. Stats: #PSV Eindhoven scored in ALL their AWAY games. #PSV Eindhoven scored FIRST in 6 out of 7 AWAY games. #PSV Eindhoven scored 14 out of 20 AWAY goals in the second half. #PSV Eindhoven scored 7 out of 20 AWAY goals after the 85th minute. #Heracles have over 2.5 goals in 6 out of 7 HOME games. #Heracles scored 4 HOME goals in the first 10 minutes, they top the Eredivisie from a quick goal perspective The trade is built around a PSV victory, although we expect Heracles to find the net in front of their own fans. HT/FT Draw/PSV 2@5 BTTS 8@1.75 UNDER 2.5 3@3 0-3 | AOA 2@12 | 3@4
  • Hoffenheim vs Gladbach

    Saturday afteroon shows an interesting match in the Bundesliga as Hoffenheim and M`gladback lock horns. Where the hosts have conceded 3+ goals in 7 of their last 8 Bundesliga matches against Gladbach, the visitors enjoy their third-best ever start in the Bundesliga. We expect this to be an open game with chances at both ends of the pitch. Statistics: Hoffenheim scored in ALL their HOME games. Hoffenheim scored FIRST in 4 out of 7 HOME games. Hoffenheim have both teams scoring in 6 out of 7 HOME games. Hoffenheim drew 3 on the spin in the Bundesliga. Hoffenheim only scored 1 First Half goal in 7 HOME games. Hoffenheim conceded 3 First Half goals in 7 HOME games. Hoffenheim hit the woodwork 7 times in 7 HOME games. M`gladbach scored in 6 out of 7 AWAY games. M`gladbach haven’t scored against RB Leipzig, however they hit the woodwork once. M`gladbach have both teams scoring in 5 out of 7 AWAY games. M`gladbach scored FIRST in 4 out of 7 AWAY games. M`gladbach scored 6 out of 12 AWAY goals in the second half. M`gladbach converted 24 shots on target into 12 AWAY goals. Our trade: The trade is built around an open game with goals at both ends of the pitch. We want to capitalize on a match winner or a high score draw. Given Hoffenheim’s poor First Half performance (only 1 FH goal in 7 home matches) this season, we have backed the HT/FT market to boost profit in case Gladbach takes a FH lead. – HT/FT Gladbach/Hoffenheim 2 pts – 2-1 | 3-1 | 2-2 2 pts | 2 pts | 3 pts – Gladbach Win 5 pts Join our experts in the FEF trading console and see how In-Play trading is done.

  • Chelsea – Man City

    The Blues are still unbeaten at Stamford Bridge, but they haven’t faced a side at the level of City yet. The EPL trophy slipped away after their 2-1 defeat against Wolves in midweek. It will be the question if they will be able to bounce back. Man City beat Watford at Vicarage Road and extended their unbeaten start to the league season. Stats: – Chelsea are undefeated in their last 11 home EPL matches – Chelase have scored 1 goal or more in 20 of their last 22 matches – Chelsea have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 3 matches against Man City in all competitions – Man City have seen both teams scoring in 4 out of their last 5 games – Man City have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 7 EPL games – Man City haven’t won at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League since April 2002 – Man City are unbeaten in their last 14 away EPL games, and they’ve never gone 15 without a defeat – Man City have scored at least 2 goals or more in 8 matches in a row Trade: The trade is built around a City win, while we fancy both teams to score. We also fancy Chelsea taking the lead in the First Half, with a City come back in the Second Half. – Man City + BTTS – HT/FT Chelsea/Man City – DRAW – 0-2 Join our experts in the FEF trading console and see how In-Play trading is done.

  • Bournemouth vs Liverpool

    Bournemouth managed to put a halt to their recent downturn in form in midweek when they beat the struggling Huddersfield 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium. Liverpool survived an unlikely scare in midweek, therefor with Gomez and Lovren sidelined, Joel Matip will retain his place in the starting XI. Pretty sure the Cherries will fancy their chances, and our trade is built around the hosts to score at least a goal. Stats: – Bournemouth have scores once or more in 7 matches in a row – Bournemouth have conceded 2 goals or more in 4 of their last 5 matches – Over 2.5 landed in Bournemouth’s last 12 out of 13 – Bournemouth have both teams to score in their last 6 matches – Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has scored eight goals in his 15 Premier League games this season – Liverpool has scored in 15 of their last 16 matches – Liverpool will host Napoli on Tuesday and they require at least a 1-0 or a two-clear goal victory to qualify for the next Champions League round (given a PSG win) Our trade: – HT/FT Bournemouth/Liverpool – HT/FT Draw/Liverpool – Back 1-2 and 1-3 on the Correct Score market – Back Over 4.5 – Lay Liverpool on the Match Odds market Join our experts in the FEF trading console and see how In-Play trading is done.
