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.
- 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.
- 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.
