GERMAN BUNDESLIGA

14:30 - Fort. Dusseldorf v Hoffenheim - 2.45 Hoff

  • We need a context for this match. As with Werder Bremen, Dusseldorf have turned it around since the return of football and with that in mind, I think it's a waste of time researching season-long form. In-play stats here. Clearly Dusseldorf are much improved and on a solid unbeaten run.

14:30 - Frankfurt v Mainz - 1.95 Frankfurt

  • Research done before the result of the mid week match. Work load is such I have to start early in the week.

Frankfurt - 12th

  • Only 1 win in 7 came v the Wolf recently, a 1-2 win. The first goal was a penalty.
  • Scored and conceded in 5 of their last 6 matches.
  • 2 losses and a 3-3 at home.
  • Scored in their last 7 at home.
  • 8 consecutive over 2.5 goals matches.
  • Only 2 0-0's at halftime at home.
  • No 0-0.
  • 2-1 loss v Mainz earlier this season.
  • 5 2-1 scorelines, a 1-1 and a 2-2 v 14th and lower.
  • Scored 13 goals at home last 15 mins of home matches.

Mainz - 15th

  • Only 2 wins in 13 matches.
  • A loss and 2 draws away.
  • Conceded last 5 away.
  • Only 2 0-0's at halftime away.
  • No 0-0 away.
  • Only 2 wins away v 7th and 9th.

Conclusions

  • Lay the 0-0 in the halftime score market.
  • Lay any late 0-0.
  • Both teams could score if that Frankfurt habit v 14th and lower continues.
  • Watch out for potential 75th+ minute goal action. Mainz concede late on, Frank score late on.

14:30 - Leipzig v Paderborn - 1.14 Leipzig

  • Another match not necessarily requiring an indepth look. Paderborn are likely relegated.
  • They play 3rd placed Leipzig, only 2 points shy of 2nd spot.
  • 4 draws in 6 needs improving upon for Leipzig. 1.14 suggests 3/4 goals and they have scored 5-2-4 goals last 3 matches.
  • Leipzig must end a 3 match home draw sequence.
  • Paderborn have 2 consecutive away 0-0's but really I cannot see a 3rd today. 3 goals minimum conceded by Paderborn v the top 3, albeit 3 scorelines were 3-2! A recent 6 goals mauling by 2nd placed Dortmund is the template for Leipzig today.
  • Usual rules apply with sub 1.2 shots which I will repeat in the DRT Facebook page Review/Preview video.

14:30 - Leverkusen v Bayern Munich - 1.44 Bayern

Leverkusen - 5th

  • Only 2 losses in 13 matches.
  • 4 consecutive home wins ended unexpectedly v Wolfsburg last time out.
  • Scored last 13 and last 5 at home.
  • 3 0-0's at halftime at home.
  • Only 1 home win v the top 9.
  • 1-2 win over Bayern earlier this season.
  • Leverkusen's free scoring has suddenly ended, with 2 consecutive matches with 1 goal max.

Bayern Munich - 1st

  • 14 wins and a 0-0 last 15 matches.
  • Have not conceded 2 goals in each of their last 7 matches.
  • Failed to score in only 1 match.
  • 7 consecutive away wins.
  • Scored in each of their last 14 away.
  • Only 2 0-0's at halftime away.
  • 0-1 win away v 2nd, 1-1 v 3rd away, 2-1 loss v 4th away. Arguably struggle more away.
  • 12 goals scored away first 15 mins of matches.

Conclusions

  • What has happened to Leverkusen's goal scoring frenzy of late? They have scored a single goal in each of their last 2 matches and that may not be enough today. Yes, Bayern are worse away from home and teams in the top 4 have generally kept a lid on them.
  • Lay the 0-0 in the halftime score market says the form.
  • Remember Bayern have failed to score only once this season.

17:30 - Dortmund v Hertha Berlin - 1.36 Dortmund

Dortmund - 2nd

  • 10 wins in 12 matches. Only lost to Leverkusen and Bayern Munich of late.
  • 5 consecutive home wins ended with a loss v Bayern last home match.
  • No draw in 13 and in 6 at home.
  • Only 2 0-0's at halftime at home.
  • Only home loss v 1st.
  • 100% wins v 4th-16th at home.
  • 30 of 45 goals scored at home came 2nd half.

Hertha Berlin - 9th

  • Unbeaten in 6 matches, scoring 2+ goals in each match.
  • 3-3. 0-3, 2-2 last 3 away matches.
  • 3 clean sheets in 4 matches.
  • 2+ goals scored in their last 6 and last 5 away.
  • No away 0-0.
  • Unbeaten away v the top 7 (but no win at home v the top 7).
  • 1-2 loss v Dortmund last time these 2 met.
  • 17 of 23 goals scored away came 2nd half.

Conclusions

  • We must acknowledge the strange form of Hertha v the top 7. Unbeaten away but no win at home! Which Hertha turns up today. They are in solid goalscoring form too.
  • Dortmund may be missing Haaland today but that did not stop them from spanking Paderborn.
  • Dortmund have a 100% win record v 14th-16th at home.
  • Lay any 2nd half 0-0.

GERMAN BUNDESLIGA 2

12:00 - Bielefeld v Nurnberg - 1.83 Bielefeld

Bielefeld

  • 5 points and a game in hand at the top. A nice position to be in.
  • Only 2 defeats.
  • 3 draws and a win last 4 matches.
  • No defeat in 10 and in 9 at home.
  • Scored last 9 at home.
  • Only 3 0-0's at halftime at home.
  • Only home loss v 2nd.
  • 1-5 win v Nurnberg earlier.
  • 15 of 23 goals scored at home came 2nd half.
  • 9 goals scored at home came last 15 mins of matches.

Nurnberg - 15th

  • 2 losses and 3 draws last 5 matches.
  • 6 0-0's at halftime away.
  • Not beaten a top 10 side away.
  • 5-3-4-4 goals conceded v the top 3.

Conclusions

  • Nurnberg tend to concede 3+ goals v the top 3 and that really should seal their fate. Simples. Bielefeld have plenty to play for.

12:00 - Regensburg v Darmstadt - 2.55 Darmstadt

Regensburg - 12th

  • 3 losses and now 4 draws.
  • 3 2-2 draws in their last 4 matches.
  • 2 consecutive home 2-2 draws.
  • In 6 of their last 7 matches, they have conceded 2 goals.
  • No home 0-0.
  • 2 of 4 home losses came v the top 2.
  • 2-2 draw last time these 2 met.
  • Did beat 4th and 6th at home.
  • 15 of 23 goals scored at home came 2nd half.
  • 15 of 21 goals conceded at home came 2nd half.

Darmstadt

  • Only 3 losses since 28th September 2020.
  • Loss, Win, Win, Draw since the return.
  • Conceded last 5 away.
  • 6 0-0's at halftime away but only 1 at fulltime.
  • In 4 of the 5 away defeats, Darmstadt failed to score.
  • very unreadable away form. Few patterns.

Conclusions

  • 2-2 pervades this match. Well worth laying if we see a Desmond late on given the fact Regensburg cannot keep getting 2-2's.
  • Lay any 2nd half 0-0.
  • Darmstadt are worryingly profligate away from home but if the in-play stats speak confidently. take note. They had some goals in them last match.

12:00 - Wehen v Dyn. Dresden - 2.20 Wehen

  • This is the bottom 2 at a part of the season where points are required. So no indepth research.
  • I will leave this to the in-play stats. The form looks similar (both sides are losing too often recently).

PORTUGUESE PRIMEIRA LIGA

21:15 - Boavista v Moreirense - 2.45 Boavista

  • No strong research here. 2.45 the favourite. I do prefer to focus on the top 5 in this league. All others are tough to rely upon.
  • Moreirense have the better recent form, unbeaten in 6 matches. 3 losses and a draw last 4 for Boavista.
  • Moreirense have conceded in their last 10 away matches.
  • Moreirense have only 1 win away. 1-1 draw last time these 2 met.
  • When Boavista have scored 2 goals at home, they have won.

AUSTRIAN BUNDESLIGA

  • The Relegation Group.

16:00 - Admira Modling v Mattersburg - 2.25 Admira


16:00 - Altach v Swarovski Tirol - 1.95 Altach

Altach

  • Only 1 loss in 8 matches.
  • Win, Draw, Win at home. 2-2-3-2-0-3-0-1 goals scored recently. Dropped recently.
  • Conceded last 7 at home.
  • Only 1 0-0 at halftime at home.
  • 3-2 win and 0-4 win v Tirol (Wattens) this season already.

Tirol

  • Conceded 2+ goals in 8 away matches but that ended with a 0-3 win v Hartberg last away match.
  • 0-5 spanking by St Polten on return.
  • Only 3 clean sheets.
  • Only 2 0-0's at halftime away.

Conclusions

  • Lay the 0-0 in the halftime score market.
  • Altach have scored 2 goals regularly and with Tirol conceding 2+ goals in 8 away, favour Altach today?

16:00 - St Polten v Austria Vienna - 2.15 Austria Vienna

  • 12th v 7th.
  • Only 1 win for St Polten came at home v Tirol. 2-2 and 0-0 last 2 matches these played this season.
  • Austria Vienna only beat Mattersburg away (11th) and with that 2-2 v St Polten, they scored 7 goals in 2 matches v the bottom 2.
  • That's all I can really go into. Austria Vienna favoured on what we can see.

GREEK SUPER LEAGUE

  • Another league split into Championship and Relegation groups.

17:15 - Panionios v Volos - 2.1 Panionios

  • Just a quick look at this . It is a Relegation Group match.
  • 14th (bottom) v 12th so can these 2 really be trusted?
  • 2 1-2 losses for Panionios v Volos last time these 2 met this season.
  • 2 of 3 home wins for Panionios were 1-0 only and you'd think this would be their aim today because they conceded v Panionios and lost the 2 times they met.
  • Only 2 away wins for Volos were 1-2 and one was v Panionios.
  • Volos are unbeaten home and away v the bottom 2.
  • Do remember that this is not traditional league football but 'Relegation group' football. How differently this will be played tactically I don't know. At least these teams will be meeting fellow dodge-pots.
  • On seasonal form, Volos have shown an ability to beat Panionios not once, but twice.

18:00 - Xanthi v Atromitos - 2.5 Xanthi


19:30 - Aris Thessaloniki v OFI Crete - 1.73 Aris

Aris

  • Only 2 wins in 9 matches came at home.
  • No 0-0 at home.

OFI Crete

  • 2 wins in 3 came at home. 4-0 and 3-0 losses away last 2 matches.
  • Conceded last 13 away.
  • No away 0-0.

Conclusions

  • This is the Championship group stage. 1-1 and 3-1 loss for Aris v OFI earlier this season. 1-1 at home.
  • No strong angles here bar to saw lay the late 0-0.

BELARUS PREMIER LEAGUE

  • 3 matches today in Belarus at odds of 2.4 or higher. I will prioritise other matches above these.

12:00 - Slutsk v Torpedo BelAZ - 2.58 Torpedo

Slutsk - 5th

  • 3 losses and a draw last 4 matches.
  • 0-1-3-1-1 goals scored at home.
  • No clean sheets.
  • Scored and conceded last 4 at home.
  • No 0-0.
  • Lost to 1st and 2nd and play 3rd today.

Torpedo Zhodino - 3rd

  • Only 2 losses came away.
  • Win, Loss, Draw, Win, Draw, Loss away.
  • Losses away v 10th and 13th.
  • All clean sheets v the top 9.

Conclusions

  • On seasonal form, slightly favour Torpedo here given their shutouts of the top 9 and the Slutsk losses v the top 3. Please note the odds though suggest a toughie.

14:00 - Isloch v FC Ruh Brest - 2.5 Ruh Brest

Isloch - 7th

  • No draw.
  • 4 losses in 5 matches, 3 consecutive losses.
  • Win, Win, Loss, win, Win, Win, Loss at home.
  • Scored last 7 at home.
  • All defeats bar 1 came v the top 6.
  • All wins at home v 8th and lower.

Ruh Brest - 9th

  • Newly promoted, only 3 losses, 2 came v last season's top 2.
  • Scored more than 1 goal a match only once.
  • Only 2 over 2.5 goals matches.
  • Only away loss v 1st.
  • 3 wins have come v 10th and lower.

Conclusions

  • Typical of a 2.5 the favourite match. Isloch look solid at home and have 100% wins v 8th and lower so on that basis, I'd be with them! But Ruh Brest have only lost to 1st in the league away. I would slightly favour Isloch here given RuH Brest have scored 2 goals or more only once this season and against an Isloch scoring in their last 7 at home and only losing v the top 6 this season.

16:00 - Slavia Mozyr v Neman Grodno - 2.84 Slavia Mozyr

  • 8th v 10th here.
  • Both sides have only 4 wins this season
  • 3 draws in 4 for Slavia.
  • Neman's sole win away came last away match.
  • Neman's only win came away v 14th. Slavia only beat 1st in the league at home! They have had a couple of 0-0;s
  • No strong angles for me.

18:00 - Dinamo Brest v FC Minsk - 1.46 Dinamo Brest

Dinamo Brest - 6th

  • 2 losses ended with a win last match. Champions last year but 6th this year.
  • Loss, Win, Loss, Win, Loss at home.
  • Only 2 clean sheets.
  • 5 consecutive over 2.5 goals matches.
  • No draw in 10 matches.
  • Beat 13th 2-1 at home, play 12th today.

FC Minsk - 12th

  • 1-1 and 1-0 win last 2 matches.
  • Loss, Loss, Win, Draw away.
  • Only 1 clean sheet came last match.
  • Conceded last 5 away.
  • 3 losses out of 4 came v the current top 3, this is where we expected last year's Champions to be!

Conclusions

  • Dinamo Brest have proven themselves to be wholly unreliable. They did beat 13th at home and play 12th today. FC Minsk have conceded last 5 matches so will give Brest a shout.
  • The market is emphatic here but seasonal form is iffy for Brest.

SOUTH KOREAN K LEAGUE CLASSIC

  • Just a quick mention, as you may not be awake!

08:30 - FC Seoul v Jeonbuk Motors - 1.84 Jeonbuk

  • Jeonbuk are a side to follow. They lost last week down to a red card. Nothing more, as they were dominant even after the red card. Expect some kind of a reaction today.

11:00 - Pohang Steelers v Ulsan Hyundai - 2.28 Ulsan Hyundai

  • Ulsan have conceded in each of their last 3 matches and remain unbeaten. They were even 2-0 down in one match. They look a team to note if conceding first!

TURKMENISTAN HIGHER LEAGUE

14:30 - FC Asgabat v Altyn Asyr - 1.18 Altyn Asyr

  • Altyn Asyr won 3 of the last 4 head to heads.
  • Only 2 losses for Asgabat this season. 4 1-1 draws last 5 matches.
  • Only 1 home loss for Asgabat was a 0-1. Note they lost 4-1 to Altyn Asyr this season and that may be the reason behind the odds.
  • 6 wins in 7 for Altyn Asyr scoring 2 goals minimum. They failed to score only once.
  • Altyn Asyr may concede as they tend to do v the top 5 without losing. Do remember the usual rules apply for sub 1.2 shots.
