This Sunday promises to have a host of games across Europe full of excitement. With almost a third of the season already gone, teams will be looking to kick on and get to their desired positions, whether it be far away from relegation to avoid the nail-biting finish, or to be as close to the champagne at the end as the team possibly can.
In this article we will be looking at three games that are likely to serve up a bagful of goals, three or more to be precise, and if you use the free £25 bet for new customers signing up with bwin on this treble, you could earn yourself a tidy £171.30! Now that’s something that could make the week ahead seem that much easier.
Over 2.5 goals in Sevilla v Athletic Bilbao @ 91/100
These two Spanish heavyweights will slug it out on Sunday evening and expect both teams to land big punches. Sevilla have had an indifferent season so far, sitting nicely in fifth placein La Ligabut not even qualifying for the Europa League, while Bilbao continue to be a threat to anyone in the league. Out of the last eight encounters in all competitions, these games have finished with three or more goals on six occasions. Both teams have healthy goalscoring records this season, with Sevilla scoring 11 and Bilbao bagging 17, and there is clear quality in both sides when they each have stolen a point away from the European champions Barcelona. With potent attacking threats coming from both sides, not least Alvaro Negredo for Sevilla and Fernando Llorente for Bilbao, expect this game to be rife with goals.
Over 2.5 goals in Brest v Sochaux @ 21/20
Sochaux are the kings of the over 2.5 goals market in France with ten of their 13 league games to date featuring three or more goals. The same cannot be said for Brest who have only had four matches which fit into this category. However, three of those have come at the Stade Francis-Le Ble, where they have only played six matches to date. Couple this 50% strike rate with Sochaux’s propensity to get involved in high-scoring clashes (five of their six away matches thus far have featured over 2.5 goals) and you can see why football betting odds of 21/20 on this particular fixture could prove a steal.
Over 2.5 goals in Hamburg v Hoffenheim @ 3/4
We conclude our treble in the Bundesliga where struggling Hamburg will be desperate to jump out of the relegation zone with a maximum haul. Despite their woes so far this term eight of their 12 matches have contained over 2.5 goals while three of Hoffenheim’s six away fixtures have ticked the box we’re after. Although this is perhaps the largest punt of the three – which is not necessarily reflected by the odds – there is further cause for optimism in the fact that two of the past three meetings between Hamburg and Hoffenheim have contained three or more goals.
