THE opening salvo from the Chilean top flight adds a bit of spice into Friday night's card and I'm focusing on matches in three countries for goals at both ends.
Vikingur v FH (7pm)
AH, good old FH Hafnarfjordur – the once unbeatable Icelandic giants reduced to a half-decent outfit who just a cannot keep their sheets clean.
No stats needed but the prepondarence of matches in which they have lost a lead or just conceded in general is scary. Vikingur are no mugs and have netted in all of the last 7 H2Hs while 5 of those 7 saw them score and concede!
I can see both netting again here tonight at a more than reasonable looking price.
- Both teams to score (4-6, bet365) – 4pts
Union La Calera v Palestino (9pm)
Of all the South and Central American leagues, Chile have been right up there (along with Costa Rica) for matches seeing both to net with the old Chilean favourite of btts 1st half being a particularly strong market these last few years.
Of the last 7 H2Hs all have seen both sides on the scoresheet with a total of 9 from the last 13 over an eight-year spell have gotten the green light for the same – not too shabby and the prices for the same again look good to me.
For any speculative punters out there looking for a longer shot then include the above but factor in the 2 Welsh Premier games kicking off at 7.45.
Both to Score Fourfold
- Vikingur v FH (7pm)
- Union La Calera v Palestino (9pm)
- Cefn Druids v Aberystwyth
- Llanelli v Carmarthen
- (8-1, bet365) – 1pt
