I hope you enjoyed the research webinar yesterday. Today is a very quiet day. The Barcelona match is of definite interest as they are trailing from the first leg. Club Brugge should dominate their match. Those are the 2 matches of interest today.

SPANISH COPA DEL REY SECOND LEG

20:30 - Barcelona v Espanyol - 1.12 Barcelona

  • This is what I look for in the Copa del Rey.
  • 1-0 to Espanyol in the first leg. Barcelona as we see are at home for this second leg.
  • 7-3-5-1-3-5-5 goals scored by Barcelona in their most recent home matches. In the Copa del Rey. That fits in with the 1.12 odds quote today.
  • I would be highly surprised were Espanyol to get anything from this match.
  • In the league, at least, Barcelona tend to score a huge amount of goals in the second half.

COUPE DE FRANCE

20:00 - Strasbourg v Lille - 2.32 Strasbourg

  • This is a Coupe de France match. Note these 2 meet again at the weekend.
  • I am not keen on researching this Coupe de France match. I will research the upcoming League match. 2.32 odds for a cup match tells me to leave alone.

BELGIAN PRO LEAGUE

19:30 - Club Brugge v Oostende - 1.5 Club Brugge

  • 3-1 Club Brugge, 2-1 Oostende and 2-3 Club Brugge in the last 3 head to heads.
  • Club Brugge have won 10/10 home matches against bottom-six teams and they have had W/W double results in 10/13 such matches.
  • KV Oostende have conceded first in 7/11 away matches.

Club Brugge (1st)

  • Only 2 defeats came away from home.
  • Failed to score in only 2 matches.
  • 11 consecutive home wins.
  • 8 consecutive over 2.5 goals matches, 6 at home.
  • Scored 2+ goals in those above matches.
  • No 0-0 at halftime at home.
  • Scored 3+ goals in 7/8 matches v teams 6th and lower at home.
  • Led at halftime in 7/11 at home.

Oostende (12th)

  • 3 defeats in their last 5 matches.
  • Only 4 clean sheets.
  • Only 1 win in 4 aways.
  • 5 0-0's at halftime away.
  • 1-0-0-0 scored away v top 7 teams.

Conclusions

  • Oostende are having trouble even scoring v the top 7 away and with Club Brugge failing to score in only 2 matches and scoring 3+ goals in 7/8 matches v teams 6th and lower at home, this should be a comfortable evening.
  • The odds are a little tentative. I would have expected them to be shorter.
