THERE are plenty of games to look at tonight and Jordan has targeted La Liga after yesterday’s nap came up with two injury-time goals at Basel.
He says: Tonight’s main bet takes us to La Liga where Eibar host Las Palmas. The away side, despite being in terrible form, gave a good account of themselves at home to Barcelona last weekend, only losing 2-1, but had plenty of possession and attempts at the Barca goal.
It’s on the road where they struggle and are the worst side in La Liga, only picking up 3 points all season on their travels. Despite the 3 points they can still score goals and have 11 away from home.
That doesn’t seem like much but when you consider it’s more on the road than the likes of Malaga, Sevilla, Betis, Getafe, Levante and Gijon and tied with Villarreal and Espanyol it’s not overly a bad account.
Eibar have impressed this season but have gone off the boil slightly, only winning 1 of their last 5 and conceding 13 in the 4 losses. These two squared off in two legs of the Copa del Rey fairly recently in which Las Palmas triumphed 3-2 home and away only to be knocked out by Valencia in the next round.
With Eibar still hoping for a European spot and Las Palmas aiming to avoid the drop we should have a competitive fixture here and I like the look of both teams to score.
Jordan also has an early-morning Aussie scorer tip and he’s commented with reasoning on Mr Fixit’s Top Tips post.
