A typically tough Monday coupon. Basaksehir and Hammarby look the most readable matches. Use your Crtl F and type 'lay the 0-0' and that will bring up the couple of lay the 0-0 in the halftime score candidates.


20:00 - AFC Bournemouth v Crystal Palace - 2.32 Bournemouth

  • The last 2 head to heads have been 2-2.
  • Win draw win at home for Bournemouth, 2-0, 2-2 and 4-2 so they could keep their end of the deal if we are to have a repeat of head to heads.
  • 2 losses came away. 2 goals conceded in each of their last 2 home matches.
  • Only 2 wins for Palace were clean sheet wins away. They conceded 2 goals in defeats.
  • Palace may be the more vulnerable today if Bournemouth continue with their goals at home. Admittedly, Bournemouth are letting teams score at home. Palace have scored 2-1-1 goals away.


19:30 - Sampdoria v SPAL - 1.84 Sampdoria

  • 2-0 Samp and 3-1 Spal in the last 2 head to heads.
  • 1-0-0-1-1-0 goals conceded by Samp. Keeping it tight but they have lost 1-0 twice, drawn 1-1 and drawn 0-0, as well as the 2 wins. No win in 3 matches.
  • No draw for SPAL, 3 losses in 4 matches. They failed to score in those defeats. 5/5 matches saw a 0-0 at halftime but none at fulltime. That is something to work with. I hope you saw in Saturday's live chat how effective it can be to take on 0-0's in matches.
  • We must acknowledge that Samp have worked on their defence. That might play to their strengths if SPAL have 3 losses in 4.
  • Note the 0-0 at halftime angle if you want to take on 0-0 2nd half OR if you want to back 0-0 pre-match at its highest point to cash out as late as you dare. An argument for defensively led football.


20:00 - Celta Vigo v Getafe - 2.12 Celta Vigo

  • 0-0, 0-1 Celta, 1-1. 3-0 Getafe last 4 head to heads.
  • Only 1 loss for Celta Vigo  was a hard fought 3-2.
  • They have scored and conceded in all bar 1 match.
  • They have scored and conceded last 3 matches without winning.
  • 3 consecutive clean sheets for Getafe ended with a loss v Atl Madrid and a 1-1 v Alaves. 2-0 loss v Real Madrid, 0-2 win v Sevilla and 1-1 away is good stuff.
  • If Getafe have only lost to the 2 big Madrid sides, and Celta only lost in a hard fought 3-2 away this match is too tough to call. I can make a case for both sides.
  • Celta scored in all matches and only 1 clean sheet so a natural inclination by them to score and concede. Other than that, I cannot pick a winner.


18:00 - Ankaragucu v Antalyaspor - 2.2 Ankar

  • Last head to heads 2011.
  • 1-3, 2-2, 1-0 at home for Ankar. 2 consecutive 1-0 wins. Have scored in every match.
  • 3 wins in 4 for Antalyaspor. Scored and conceded in 4 of their last 5 matches. 2 losses away and a win away 2-3.
  • No clean sheets.
  • On form, Ankaragacu should score. No 0-0 at halftime for Antalyaspor. Lay the 0-0 in the halftime score market?

18:00 - Basaksehir v Yeni Malatyaspor - 1.47 Basaksehir

  • Basaksehir tend to win head to heads.
  • Only 1 loss for Basaksehir. 3 consecutive clean sheets. 3 consecutive home wins.
  • Win, Draw, Loss for Basakeshir away. 2 losses in their last 3 matches.
  • It does look like the market is right here. I will expect a Basaksehir win, or at least not to lose.


18:00 - FC Nordsjaelland v SonderjyskE - 1.96 FC Nord

  • 1-4 Nord, 4-1 Nord, 2-2 and 2-1 Sonder in the last 4 head to heads.

Nord (9th)

  • only 3 wins.
  • only 3 over 2.5 goals matches.
  • Win, Win, Loss, Win at home last 4 matches.
  • no 0-0 at halftime at home.
  • 3/3 wins at home v 8th and lower and play 11th at home.

Sonder (11th)

  • Only 2 away win came last match, a 2-4 v Brondby.
  • 3 losses away before that.
  • Only 2 clean sheets.
  • Conceded in their last 5 away.
  • 2-4 win and 2-2 v 7th and 10th away.


  • Lay the 0-0 in the halftime score market.
  • Sonder throw a spanner in the works with that excellent 2-4 win away v a solid Brondby. Having also drawn 2-2 v 10th away, Sonder may cope with 9th?
  • Too tough to call alas. 3 wins in 4 for Nord and excellent form Sonder v 7th and 10th away.


18:00 - Orebro v Trelleborgs - 1.6 Orebro

  • 1-2 Orebro in the most recent head to head. Trelleborg scored first.

Orebro (9th)

  • Only 1 loss in 5 matches saw 3 consecutive wins. 0-0 last match.
  • Only 5 clean sheets.
  • 7 0-0's at halftime at home.
  • Won at home v 15th.
  • Scored and conceded in 10 of their last 12 matches at home.
  • Scored 11 of 15 goals 2nd half at home.
  • Conceded 14 of 16 goals at home second half.

Trelleborgs (16th)

  • No win in 13. No win in 8 away.
  • 5 consecutive away defeats.
  • Conceded in their last 15 and last 11 away.
  • Did beat 2nd away but that was the sole win.
  • Scored and conceded away v 8th and lower seeing 3 score draws.
  • 14 of 20 goals conceded away came 1st half.


  • A score draw is possible for Trelleborgs, as seen by their performances v 8th and lower.
  • Orebro 7 0-0's at halftime at home but Trelleborgs conceding 14 goals first half away. Where do you lean?
  • If Orebro cannot score before halftime, expect 2nd half goals. They may concede, both teams scoring in 10/12 at home but Orebro not to lose.

18:00 - Elfsborg v Hacken - 2.42 Hacken

  • 3 Hacken wins in 4 head to heads. Elfsborg won the last home head to head.

Elfsborg (11th)

  • 3 draws and 2 wins last 5 matches.
  • 2 consecutive 1-0 wins.
  • Only 5 clean sheets saw those 2 above recently.
  • Only 1 win home and away v top 8.
  • 0-0-1-0-0 scored at home v the top 5.
  • 6 of 8 goals scored at home came 1st half.
  • 8 of 11 goals conceded at home came 1st half.

Hacken (6th)

  • 7 wins in their last 8 matches. Only leaders AIK have beaten them recently.
  • No draw in 10 away.
  • Losses away v 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 8th, 12th, 14th so are vulnerable away.


  • If Elfsborg continue to largely fail to score v the top 5, then 6th may see that pattern continue.
  • Certainly on momentum, we must be with Hacken, but 7 losses away tells us they are not the best travellers.
  • On very recent form, I must be with Hacken not to lose despite 2 consecutive Elfsborg 1-0 wins.

18:00 - Hammarby v IFK Goteborg - 1.52 Hammarby

  • 2 consecutive Hammarby 2-1 wins in head to heads.

Hammarby (4th)

  • 3 losses and a draw last 4 matches.
  • 2 consecutive home losses.
  • No draw in 12 at home.
  • Unbeaten home and away v 12th and lower.
  • 12 of 15 goals conceded at home came 2nd half.

IFK (12th)

  • Only 3 wins in 16 matches came at home.
  • Only 3 clean sheets.
  • Failed to score in only 4 matches.
  • Scored and conceded in 7 of their last 8 matches.
  • Conceded in their last 11 away matches.
  • 5 losses and a win away v 7th and higher.


  • Hammarby should do as the odds suggest today. Look at IFK away. Only 2 wins, one v bottom of the league. IFK are scoring and conceding but generally not winning so note that if they score first.
  • IFK are highly likely to concede.
  • Lay any late draw based on Hammarby?
