NOT fancying any of the friendlies today but I have had a good look at the Austrian lower leagues.
By no means an expert on this league but it’s usually good for goals and there are a couple that stand out.
St Anna v Leoben DSV (6pm)
Feldkrichen v St Jacob (6pm)
Been no shortage of goals in St Anna’s games this season – 12 of their last 15 have seen over 2.5 goals with an incredible 24 goals being scored in their last four matches. They narrowly missed out on promotion but would still expect them to score a few today against a side who have seen 11 of their last 12 matches go over 2.5 goals.
Another side who have seen plenty of goals (for and against) are Feldkrichen. Seven of their last 8 games at home have seen over 2.5 goals and they face a side trying to get out of the relegation play off positions. Fancy both sides to score here.
- Over 2.5 match goals double (11-10, b ) (NAP)
Mannsworth v Ostbahn XI (6.30)
This game is a bit of a head scratcher in terms of how the bookies have priced this game.
Mannsworth sit on 33 points, one point above the relegation play-off positions. Ostbahn lie on 22 points, occupying second bottom and just one point above automatic relegation.
The match is crucial for both clubs. The hosts have won 4 of their last 5 home games scoring 11 goals and play a side with the opposite record. Ostbahn have lost 4 of their last 5 scoring just once.
Here comes the quandary – home win 9-2, away win 4-11.
None of that makes any sense given league positions, form and the fact both sides need points here. I often say the bookies don’t often get it wrong but they do from time time and I like to take advantage when they do. Can’t find any other info but be good to hear any other views.
Yes Ostbahn need the points more but doesn’t meant they should be 4-11 against a side who are in better form and are strong at home.
- Mannsworth to win 9-2
- Mannsworth not to lose 2-1
