Expert Betting Tips
We predict that both teams will find the back of the net in this one. Looking back at their previous meetings, we see that both teams have been dangerous going forward but have struggled on defence. Since we anticipate more than two goals being scored in this matchup, a wager on both teams scoring is a viable option. There should be plenty of chances for both teams to score, putting pressure on the defensive lines. As a result, the referee will likely show a lot of caution cards due to the high number of fouls that will undoubtedly occur.
