The BTTS coupon has been very kind to us over the course of 2014/15 and we’re looking for another winner on the final day across Europe.
It has been an explosive season across the continent and we’re expecting it to end in fitting fashion on the final day. As a result, we’re backing these six sides to all find the net at some stage.
We’ve had bigger winners throughout the season but, at odds of over 3/1, this treble has to be worth a punt.
Borussia Dortmund V Werder Bremen. 2:30PM
Jurgen Klopp’s final year in charge of Borussia Dortmund hasn’t exactly gone to plan but he’ll be eager to end his Bundesliga affiliation on a high at Signal Iduna Park However, the BVB could be pushed all the way by German football’s surprise package of 2014/15.
Werder Bremen are a decent side but few would’ve predicted a top two finish for Viktor Skripnik’s men. However, that’s exactly what will happen should they avoid defeat against Dortmund and the visitors will certainly fancy their chances after netting 32 on the road this season.
Former West Ham United man Franco Di Santo has been a major part of Bremen’s success and he’ll be hoping to increase his personal tally of 13 goals here. For all their positives, though, the visitors have shipped 23 away goals and could be in for a tough afternoon against the likes of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and co.
Dortmund have definitely improved in recent weeks and will also want to build momentum ahead of next weekend’s DFB Pokal Cup final. Meanwhile, three of their past four encounters have ended in BTTS winners, which is another reason to expect action in this end of season clash.
December’s reverse clash saw Bremen claim a 2-1 win. We’re backing both teams to find the target once more.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
Celta Vigo V Espanyol. 5:30PM
Our second selection comes from the concluding day of La Liga action and we’re anticipating an exciting affair as Espanyol make the trip to Celta Vigo’s Estadio de Balaidos.
The visitors boast 22 goals on the road this term, claiming positive results in exactly half of their 18 matches, but have also conceded a worrying 29 away from Barcelona. Celta Vigo on the other hand have netted 27 en route to seven home wins, although they’ve shipped 20 too.
Meanwhile, Celta’s last three contests have all ended in BTTS draws, which suggest both teams could be in for goals again here. Espanyol did manage a 1-0 victory in the reverse clash but Eduardo Berizzo’s men offer a far greater challenge on home turf.
With just two points separating the sides after 37 matches, another score draw could well be on the cards.
BTTS Yes @ 4/6
Genoa V Inter Milan. 7:30PM
There’s only two matches on offer from Serie A, which doesn’t end until next week, this Saturday but one of them looks to be an absolute certainty for goals as Genoa host Inter Milan.
Incredibly, the hosts are ahead of the former giants in this season’s standings and Gian Gasperini will be looking to the likes of Iago Falque to inflict further misery on Roberto Mancini’s side. However, whilst Genoa have scored 30 goals at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, they have also leaked 19 from their previous 18 home matches.
Moreover, Genoa’s last two home games have ended in BTTS winners as did their trip to the San Siro earlier this season. Inter, meanwhile, have netted 24 but conceded 22 from 18 matches on the road, which is another source of optimism.
It’s unlikely to be a seven-goal thriller but it is likely that we’ll see chances at both ends. Back both teams to score.
BTTS Yes @ 11/20
