I'M kicking off my first goals coupon of the new campaign with a trip to the Austrian Bundesliga.
Newly-promoted LASK Linz have hit the ground running in the top flight with a 3-0 home win over Admira followed by a creditable 1-1 draw at champs Salzburg.
On Saturday they welcome a St Polten side whose opening two games have featured 10 goals, with both seeing btts and over 2.5 land.
St Polten have yet to pick up a point but should be able to get on the scoresheet for the third game running and I like both teams to net at 68-67 with 188bet.
In Belgium, week two of the season sees Mechelen travel to Beveren in a fixture that usually sees goals. Three of their four meetings last season banked btts and Beveren began the new campaign with a 3-3 draw at Genk while Mechelen fought out a 1-1 stalemate with Standard Liege. Btts in this one pays 4-5 at bet365.
Completing the treble is Troyes v Rennes on the opening day of French Ligue 1. Yo-yo club Troyes were promoted via the play-offs and are favourites for the drop but will be fired up to start strongly while Rennes will fancy their chances of scoring.
The sides have met five times in the past five years and all of them saw both score, with a repeat evens at William Hill.
