Following on from last week’s Super Scandinavian Saturday which saw us bash the bookies with a treble that flew in with little fuss whatsoever, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s plenty more action from the same area of Europe this week.
Betfred’s Goals Galore coupon offers us 4/1 for just 3 correct selections so without further ado it’s time we delved into this week’s action:
Start vs Brann
After 2 from 2 in Norway last week, let’s begin back in the Eliteserien that proved so fruitful last week. Home team Start are not struggling at the bottom of the table due to their lack of firepower as they’ve netted in 6 of their last 7 outings, but they’ve also conceded in each of their last 8 matches and their leaky defence sees them just one place off the bottom of the league. Brann travel to the strugglers knowing that a win could catapult them into the European places, the team currently in fourth have scored and conceded in each of their last 5 games and another goal fest looks likely here.
Elfsborg vs Halmstad
Relegation battlers Halmstard travel to European football chasing Elfsborg in a fixture that has had no shortage of goals in recent years. The last 5 meetings have seen both these sides find the net at least once. Elfsborg’s last home match saw them crush Syrianska 5-1, whilst Halmstad have scored in their last 3 away games despite struggling at the wrong end of the table.
CSKA Moscow vs Zenit St Petersburg
Russia’s top two footballing superpowers do battle in the Russian Super Cup before the curtain comes up on the domestic season in Russia. Three of the last four meetings between these two have seen both sides score at least once. The rivals will be eager to bag the first piece of silverware on offer but with experimental sides a very real possibility the scoreline should reflect the changes as well as the rustiness in the first game for both sides this season and the goals can rain down at the Stadion Olimp 2.
