NOT around until late on Friday so here goes for two games that look A-OK and I’m pretty sweet on both.
I was initially drawn to the Welsh Premier card by Elvis Parsley’s mob hosting The New Saints but after a good look I’m giving it a wide berth – what did catch my eye, however, was this one.
Cardiff MU v Llanelli Town (7.30pm)
Cardiff Met may not be in their best form but are a decent side and the artificial home turf can certainly make a difference as seen in their 4-1 mullering of TNS back in late September and some big wins late last campaign against the likes of Bala, Barry and Newtown.
What attracts me even more though is their opponents' own form and their away form in particular. Llanelli’s last 8 league matches have seen them concede 1-7-6-5-1-3-3-3 goals – it’s a damning picture and one that’s sure to see them back down in the Welsh feeder leagues come next season.
Cardiff Met ran out 2-0 winners back in October and my money's on them going at least one better.
With the Christmas break rudely interrupting South America’s footballing schedule for a couple of weeks (keep an eye out for the youth comp mind) – all eyes will be on the blessed New Zealand youth games. It’s still the best league I have followed for goals but alas the value that once was is now diminished. That said there’s still a good bit to go at if you spot it early enough.
Hawke's Bay United U20 v Eastern Suburbs U20s (11pm)
No extensive write-up here but a quick rundown on the 25 most recent match goal stats for each side offers an insight into why I love this obscure league so much.
Recent H2Hs: 6-5 match goals (6-0, 1-4)
Not too shabby and although I don’t like to sound too optimistic – I love the look of bet365‘s offering and would have put a 4.5 goal line around 1.75-1.8.
- Over 4 match goals (Evens, bet365 – Betbuilder Tab)
