I FLAGGED up Alexander Meier’s return from injury last week and the big striker made a brilliant comeback with a hat-trick as Eintracht Frankfurt trounced Cologne 6-2.
Today goal-hungry Eintracht travel to Hamburg and I expect a high-scoring affair again with the teams having made a decent start with two wins apiece from their first four Bundesliga matches.
Only one game for these sides this season has seen both teams fail to score so go for both to score today at 10-17 with 10bet. Three of the last four meetings have also seen over 2.5 goals so well worth a look is both to score and over 2.5 goals at 5-6 with bet365.
And I can’t ignore Meier. Last season’s Bundesliga top scorer bagged a double in the last meeting with Hamburg and I’ll be on him to net today. Rather than backing him at 7-4 with Ladbrokes to net any time, take him to score first each-way at 11-2 with bet365 who pay out 1/3 odds if he nets any time.
In the Dutch league PSV visit a Heracles side flying high above them in second spot after a great start to the season. Both sides are freescoring and four of their past five meetings have seen both teams score so take btts at 1-2 with Coral.
Complete the treble with both to score in Sturm Graz v Austria Vienna. Graz have netted in all their home league games this term and Vienna have yet to draw a blank away from home.
