First legs are usually cagey affairs with the away side looking to frustrate their opponents before attempting to win in the return fixture.
However, this is unlikely to be the case as ADO Den Haag host Groningen in the quest for the Eredivisie’s last Europa League spot.
The last two games between the clubs produced no less than 17 goals and there has only been one clean sheet in their last five clashes.
Based on those facts, football betting fans could be tempted to place a wager on one of the many goal bets offered by bwin.com.
The site has made available a number of odds to those looking to predict an exact number of goals.
Last time out, Groningen inflicted a 4-2 defeat over tonight’s hosts, while the previous match saw the Euroborg outfit edge a 6-5 thriller.
Bearing this in mind, some of the sensible money could be placed on a high-scoring affair.
Odds of 35/1 are offered on the game seeing eight or more goals, while exactly seven notches is priced at 20/1.
Those expecting the play-off final to bring out the teams’ conservative side can find odds of 6/1 on one goal, 16/5 on two and three, or 29/2 on the bore draw.
While games between the two sides have produced a hatful of goals, Den Haag have rarely had any luck. With no wins and only one draw in the last five games, John van den Brom’s side could be forgiven for going into the clash without high hopes.
Despite this, the team that finished seventh in the league, three points behind Pieter Huistra’s men, go into the tie as favourites.
The home win is priced at 19/20, while odds of 21/10 are offered on Groningen heading back to the Euroborg with a victory. The stalemate can also be backed at 13/5.
One tip that people looking for Eredivisie play-off odds may be tempted by is for more goals to be scored in the second half.
Den Haag have conceded 35 of their 58 goals after the interval, while 26 of the 56 shipped by the Green-White Army have come in the last 30 minutes.
At 2/1, a £10 bet on the second half seeing more goals would return £30. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
