Fill your boots: 5 BTTS bankers from Sunday's football
From Stamford Bridge to San Sebastian, these fixtures promise goals at both ends of the pitch.
Chelsea v Arsenal –
Arsenal’s record in away games against top teams is poor, but they do tend to get on the scoresheet when they play the Blues.
The Gunners have scored in each of the last four meetings between these sides, including the 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge in February.
Having found form with six goals in their last two games, the Gunners should again find the net on Sunday.
Chelsea have scored in every one of their five games this season and beat Qarabag 6-0 last time out, which makes this a safe bet.
Torino v Sampdoria –
Torino were among Europe’s most reliable BTTS sides last season, with both teams scoring in 30 of their 38 league games – the highest proportion in Serie A.
The Italian side have made a fine start to this campaign, too, winning all four of their games in all competitions and scoring 12 goals.
Sampdoria have won both of their Serie A games this season 2-1, and have bagged seven in three in all competitions.
PSV v Feyenoord –
Don’t let PSV’s 2-0 defeat to Heerenveen last weekend put you off.
Phillip Cocu’s side had Hirving Lozano sent off in the first half, and had scored nine goals in their previous three games.
They are likely to rediscover their scoring touch against Feyenoord, who were thrashed 4-0 at home to Manchester City in midweek.
The Dutch champions have scored 12 in four in the league, though, and they should manage to get on the scoresheet too.
PSG v Lyon –
PSG have bagged at least two goals in every game this season and 10 in their last two. In short, them scoring is a given.
What this bet really comes down to is whether Lyon can also score, and their 11 goals in five Ligue 1 matches suggest so.
Bruno Genesio’s side netted in all three of their meetings with PSG last season, and are good value to do so again on Sunday.
Real Sociedad v Real Madrid –
Real Sociedad rewarded this article’s faith in them with a 4-2 win over Deportivo last weekend.
The Basque side have now won four out of four in all competitions, scoring three or more in every game.
La Liga’s highest scorers are again worth backing as they take on Real Madrid, who were part of more BTTS games last season than any other Spanish side.
Zinedine Zidane’s side have conceded at home to Valencia and Levante this season, so a clean sheet looks unlikely against a team playing as well as Sociedad.
Madrid have scored in every game since their 0-0 draw with Manchester City in April 2016, meaning BTTS is nailed on here.
