This weekend’s football schedule is a strange one to say the least as the main highlights come from the international stage in both Europe and South America. However, there are still domestic games being played in both of those continents and we’re looking to combine the three in our Saturday evening BTTS treble.
We’re hoping to see goals galore from Saturday’s fixtures and are backing these six to all find the target in what would be a brilliant treble to land. At odds of over 7/1, it has to be worth a punt.

Las Palmas V Valladolid. 7PM
Our first selection comes from the Spanish Segunda play-off second leg between Las Palmas and Valladolid. The two rivals shared a 1-1 draw on Wednesday and we’re predicting more goals as they collide at the Estadio de Gran Canaria.
The two sides scored a combined total of 134 goals during the regular season, conceding 105 in the process and we fancy this semi-final match to be equally entertaining. The goals have flown in for both teams and both ends of the pitch and there’s no reason to think they’ll dry up on Saturday.
Paco Herrera’s side are in good form having not lost any of their past six matches, and they’ll be hoping to see star man Serio Araujo add to his 24 goals. The visitors have goals in their team too, though, and enter this clash having scored in each of their last nine.
Including Wednesday’s draw, all three head-to-head encounters have ended in BTTS winners. Expect that to continue here.

Northern Ireland V Romania. 7:45PM
It’s the final weekend of Euro 2016 qualifiers in the 2014/15 season and Group F rivals Northern Ireland and Romania are both in great shape at the halfway point of this 10-game campaign. The winner of Saturday’s clash will be almost guaranteed a play-off spot at the very least and both teams will be eager for the three points.
Michael O’Neill’s men suffered a 2-0 loss in Romania last November but the Green’s should have a much better chance of success at Windsor Park. Norn Iron have to be positive and look to utilise Kyle Lafferty and co. They should add to their eight qualifying goals, even against a pretty solid defence.
Nonetheless, Romania will head into this contest fancying their chances of a win and Anghel Iordanescu will be looking to the likes of Bogdan Stancu and Caludiu Keseru to fire the his side towards next summer’s tournament in France.
Both teams know that a win would set them well on their way to a place at Euro 2016 and each will expected to put an emphasis on attack. Let’s hope that results in goals.

Chapecoense V Sao Paulo. 8:20PM
The Copa America might be in action but that hasn’t brought the Brazilian leagues to a halt. High-flying Sao Paulo will be looking to continue their fine start with an away win at Chapecoense, but should expect a spirited fight from the hosts at Arena Conda.
Chapecoense might not have the quality of their more illustrious opponents but Vinicius Eutropio’s side have won all three home games this term. Confidence will be high after beating both Santos and Coritiba on home turf and they should at least fancy their chances of a goal.
However, you cannot overlook the quality of Sao Paulo. Juan Carlos Osorio’s side boasts the likes of Denilson, Luis Fabiano, Alexandre Pato and Souza. Meanwhile, legendary goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni has also scored twice this season and is always a threat from set-pieces.
It’s quite a hard game to predict but we’d like to think there will be chances. Back both teams to score.
