Over 2.50 Tips | Expecting Goals in Chelsea’s Tie in France!
Greetings everyone. Sadly, we did not have much luck with picks in the Over 2.5 goals FT section seven days ago. TheBt4Y crew was one goal short in two of three games we cherry-picked on the day. Roma wasted tons of chances in front of Atalanta’s goal to lose the Serie A fixture 0-2 on the home patch last week.
Real Madrid were expected to cruise past Osasuna at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu but Los Blancos only scored two goals in a clean-sheet victory. The only winning bet came from the English League Cup where Chelsea stormed past lower-division Grimsby Town 7-1 at Stamford Bridge.
This week brings us the second round ties in the UEFA Champions League. Here are the matches in which we expect to see goal fests on Wednesday:
Pick #1 – Lille v Chelsea @ 9/10 (mid stake) – UEFA Champions League – 2nd October 2019, 20:00.
We are going for the value here. Chelsea have been playing attacking-minded football ever since Frank Lampard took charge. They kept just one clean sheet in ten outings across competitions this season. Each of the four games they played away from home has seen four or more goals scored. The streak includes a demolishing 2-5 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. Lille scored at least two goals in each of the four games they played on the home patch so far in Ligue 1.
Pick #2 – Leipzig v Lyon @ 8/15 (high stake) – UEFA Champions League – 2nd October 2019, 20:00.
This is the clash between two attackingly-oriented teams and this match has goals in it. The host played eight games in all competitions since the start of the season and only one has seen fewer than three goals scored. They allowed three goals in a disappointing home defeat to Schalke on Saturday afternoon in Bundesliga. Lyon head into the tie on the back of two successive 2-2 draws in the last two away fixtures in Ligue 1 against Amiens and Brest.
Pick #3 – Genk v Napoli @ 4/9 (high stake) – UEFA Champions League – 2nd October 2019, 17:55.
Genk were on the wrong end of the 6-2 drubbing on the opening Matchday when they suffered a catastrophe in Salzburg. They are about to face an even more dangerous team in the second round as Napoli come to visit Luminus Arena. Partinopei scored as many as 11 goals in the last three away outings in Serie A. They conceded eight goals in the process. There were at least three goals scored in each of the last four matches Genk played across competitions.
