Borussia D vs Bayer: The rivals will once again break the upper hand
Borussia D have picked up three wins in the last three rounds. They managed to beat Eintracht 3-2, Freiburg 5-1 and last round against Hoffenheim 3-2. But, in between those victories, there was also a sensational defeat in the German Cup to St. Pauli (1-2). Borussia D are second in the Bundesliga table with 43 points, six points behind leading Bayern.
Bayer drew with Union (2-2) after their 1-2 loss to Freiburg and then outplayed their two opponents. First, Borussia M (2-1), and then Augsburg in the last round (5-1). Bayer are right below their opponents in third place in the standings, but they have as many as eight points (35) less.
A regular Total Over has been broken down in the last eight face-to-face matches between these opponents. Is there any suggestion that this meeting will break that streak? We think not, so we bet on Total Over.
- Bet: Total Over (2.5)
Barcelona vs Atletico: A goal extravaganza is not to be expected
After losing the Spanish Super Cup semi-final to Real Madrid (2-3), Barcelona also lost the Spanish Cup in the last 16. It was a 2-3 loss to Athletic. After that, there was a La Liga match against Alaves, where the Catalans snatched victory on 87 minutes (1-0). They sit fifth in the table with 35 points.
Atletico followed a similar path, losing the Spanish Super Cup semi-final to Athletic (1-2), then losing the Spanish Cup semi-final to Real Sociedad (0-2) in the last 16 then winning the last round of La Liga. After the first half, they lost to Valencia (0-2), but in the second half, they scored three unanswered goals, two of which were in regulation time (3-2). Atletico are fourth in the table with 36 points.
We think the opponents will be cautious. They are side by side in the table, separated by just one point, so it's unlikely that anyone will take any chances. And the last three head-to-head encounters between Barcelona and Atletico have been drawn. We suggest we'll wager on Total Under.
- Bet: Total Under (2.5)
Senegal vs Egypt: Too much at stake
The Senegal national team beat Cape Verde (2-0), Equatorial Guinea (3-1) and Burkina Faso 3-1 in the AFCON play-offs. In general, we can say that the Senegalese have improved throughout the tournament, as their play in the group stage left a lot to be desired.
Egypt defeated far more powerful opponents in the Africa Cup of Nations play-offs. And all their matches failed to end in regulation time. It was a penalty shoot-out against Ivory Coast (0-0, 5:4 penalty), overtime against Morocco (2-1), and a penalty shoot-out against Cameroon in the semi-finals (0-0, 3-1 penalty).
The risks in this encounter will be minimized, and it will certainly not be spectacular. The error price is too high; there's too much at stake. Likely, we won't see any goals, but only one at best. So the logical bet would be on Total Over 1.5.
- Bet: Total Over 1.5
