There’s nothing better than spending a Sunday afternoon praying for goals as well as Super Sunday in the Premier League, we have action all across Europe as most major leagues reach their closing stages. Here’s the best bets for Goals Galore this Sunday.
Liverpool vs Everton – 4/6
Regardless of whether these sides have anything to play for this season, the added spice of a Merseyside derby is always good for goals. The two sides have already met twice this season in the league and the FA Cup and both meetings have resulted in goals at both ends.

A win for Liverpool here can move them within 2 points of their Merseyside neighbours leaving bragging rights all up for grabs with 2 games remaining. After 2 successive 0-0 draws against West Ham and Reading, they seem to have found their goal scoring form again putting 2 past Chelsea and 6 past Newcastle, the latter of which was without their “hungry” striker Suarez. Liverpool have scored in every meeting with Everton at Anfield since 2007 and with that 6 goal thriller of a performance in their last game, goals look likely for the home side again today.
Everton want only 1 thing this season and that is to finish above Liverpool. A Europa League spot looks unlikely as they sit 3 points behind 5th placed Spurs having played a game more. Everton’s Goals Galore prowess seems to have failed them recently. Only 1 of their last 7 games has seen both teams find the net but with all at stake at Anfield this Sunday, something has to give. They’ve managed a goal in 12 of their 17 away games this season and have kept only 2 clean sheets in the process. Though their recent form doesn’t scream goals, everything changes in this derby.
RKC Waalwijk vs Vitesse – 4/9
If you need goals, go to Holland, that’s generally my motto in life. As the season reaches its final stages with the 2nd to last game of the season this weekend, we have the added benefit of all of the Dutch league kicking off at 11:30AM on a Sunday morning, perfect viewing with your late breakfast. My pick of the bunch comes in a clash which still has importance for both sides. RKC Waalwijk can still be dragged into the relegation playoff places whereas Vitesse could technically still finish 2nd in the league, which would be a huge shock.
Wallwijk seem to have developed a stubbornness recently which has seen them undefeated in their last 3 games. Results against AZ and ADO Den Haag were impressive enough, but a 1-1 draw against 3rd placed Feyenoord in their last game was more so. They’ve kept only 5 clean sheets at home this season, which is probably half of the reason why they are struggling at the wrong end of the table. However, they have also failed to score on only 5 occasions, 4 of which were during a baron spell last month when they just couldn’t seem to find a goal.
Vitesse are always a great team for goals and they have been impressive to say the least this season. In their last 5 games they have scored 3 goals on 3 occasions and have only failed to score against Feyenoord. Away from home they have failed to score only once this season and after being relatively tight defensively at the start of their campaign, they have gone on to keep only 2 clean sheets in 2013 away from home.
The last 3 meetings between the two clubs have seen both teams find the net, including their last meeting here which finished 1-3 exactly 12 months ago.
Hamburg vs Wolfsburg – 1/2
For the last part of the treble I’ve taken a visit to the Bundesliga with 2 sides that are seeing games full of goals recently. Hamburg’s last 5 games have seen an average of 3.4 goals whereas Wolfsburg have seen an average of exactly 4 goals per game. Both sides have seen 4 of their last 5 games result in both teams finding the net and given that the last 4 consecutive meetings between the two and 8 of their last 10 meetings have resulted in Goals Galore, it’s easy to understand why Skybet go ½ for both teams to score this afternoon.
Both sides have little to play for this season as they seem to be set for mid-table obscurity. This should hopefully give them a sense of freedom as they can put on a show for their fans. With both sides being beaten by Champions League finalists by an aggregate of 15-3 in recent weeks, we can expect leaky defences and attacking football with this game and both teams should find the net with ease.
