Expert Betting Tips
The game promises to be very tense with no massive lead for one team. The match will see not so many goals scored. Bet9ja gives odds of 1.70 for Total Under (2.5) Goals.
Apart from that, the first goal isn’t going to be scored at the beginning, as it’ll take some time for the teams to warm up and observe each other. Moreover, they are coached by experts who pay attention to every detail. That is why we assume that the first goal won’t be scored in the first thirty minutes, happening between the 31st and the 90th minutes including the stoppage time instead. 1xbet gives odds of 2.15 for this betting option.
You can also consider betting on the goal from the legendary Jamie Vardy. He has two goals under his belt this season and that's just the beginning. Betway gives a generous odds of 2.95 for it.
