Fill Your Boots: Wednesday BTTS tips and 7/1 boost
These football tips from Ligue 1, the Copa del Rey and Premier League should deliver goals, and profit. The four-fold has been boosted to 7/1.
Lyon v Stade Rennes (18:00)
Lyon have scored in all of their last eight home matches, with BTTS landing in six of them.
Bruno Genesio’s side have scored and conceded in seven of their last eight overall. They rank fourth for xG and second for shots per game at home in Ligue 1.
Only PSG better Stade Rennes’ xG away from home so far this season, though, as borne out by the fact that they have scored in every one of their away matches. Both teams have scored in all of those games.
Real Sociedad v Celta Vigo (19:30)
Both teams scored in the first leg of this Copa Del Rey tie, as well as the league meeting between these sides nine days ago, so there is no reason not to back a repeat when they meet on Wednesday.
Though Sociedad made some changes to their starting XI for that match, Adnan Januzaj was a starter, and Mikel Oyarzabal has since scored two goals in four matches.
Key striker Iago Aspas started the first leg of this tie, so Celta Vigo evidently have some intention of taking it seriously. All six of their away games in all competitions this season has seen goals at both ends.
Fulham v Leicester (19:45)
There has been clear improvement at Fulham since the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as manager, with a spirited 2-0 defeat at Chelsea following a 3-2 win over Southampton.
This game should follow the path of the latter. The Cottagers should have no problem scoring themselves, after failing to do so in just one of their last five league games at Craven Cottage.
But Ranieri’s efforts are unlikely to be enough to prevent his former club from netting themselves. Leicester have scored in all of their league away games so far this season, with BTTS landing in all but their matches at Newcastle and Cardiff.
Manchester United v Arsenal (20:00)
Manchester United are having a poor season, but it is worth remembering they are still among the best performing BTTS sides in the league.
Jose Mourinho’s side have only failed to score in two league matches at Old Trafford this season, posting an xG of over 1.3 in both. They rank ninth for xG at home this season – poor by their standards, but fine for this bet – with 11 of their 14 league matches returning BTTS.
Arsenal join them at the top of that metric, with 11 of their 14 matches also seeing goals at both ends. Unai Emery’s side have scored and conceded in all of their league away games this season and are second to Manchester City for goals scored.
