IT’S been a while since I visited Salzburg, not literally of course, but in the early part of the season they were the go-to team for goals.
With fewer games in the UK this weekend I cast my net a bit wider in the search for goals and looking at the h2h between Altach and Red Bull there should be plenty.
Salzburg will be champions again as they lead Rapid Vienna by 10 points with four games remaining. They’ve netted 93 and conceded more than one a match.
Altach look set for a Europa League place and are no mugs but it’s the h2h that interests me with eight of the last nine meetings going over 2.5 goals with some high scorers in Rheindorf.
Add both to score at Lille v Marseille. Lille are unbeaten in 10 and on a good run, winning eight of their last 10 at home in Ligue 1 and netting at least two in their last five.
Marseille score plenty and concede loads too with their only clean sheet in seven coming at Metz. Four of the last six meetings in Lille have been high scorers so let’s hope for both sides finding the target.
Complete the treble with Inter Milan v Juventus in Serie A. Juve will be on a high after clinching a place in the Champions League Final and their focus will be on the Final against Barcelona next month having already wrapped up the title.
Inter’s season has been fairly rubbish but they could still finish fifth and their matches have produced plenty of goals with 47 in 17 at the San Siro. Juve’s defence is renowned but they’ve only kept one clean sheet in seven games and both have scored in Inter’s last three.
Anyone who thinks can lightning can strike twice might consider a small wager on both to score in all 10 Serie A games this weekend. It came up last week of course with nine of the matches going over 2.5 goals – a repeat pays 281-1 at Ladbrokes.
