Frankfurt v Spurs 

Die Adler have been in fine form so far this Bundesliga season. A 2-0 win over league leaders, Union Berlin, at the weekend makes it four wins out of their last five which will keep spirits high going into a tough clash with Spurs. 

A tough loss against bitter rivals is a hard pill to swallow for Tottenham but it is only their second loss of the season in all competitions, so the Lilywhites are still in a good position.  

It’s going to be an interesting matchup with both sides struggling with respective their home and away form. Frankfurt’s three losses this year have all come in home games whilst Spurs have only won one of their five away games this season, which was against a lowly Forest side. 

Since 2016/17, Spurs have played five games in Germany and have a record of W2-D1-L2 with their two wins coming against Borussia Dortmund (1-0, 2-1) and losses against Leipzig (3-0) and Bayern (3-1).Frankfurt have only played two games at home to English teams and have drawn against Chelsea (1-1) in the Europa League semi’s back in 2018/19. They also lost 3-0 to Arsenal the year after. 

Despite neither team having both teams to score markets coming off in their Champions League matches, we still think it’s the safest bet here with Spurs being the favourite but also having a shaky defence that seems susceptible to a goal or two. 62% of Frankfurt’s league games have finished with BTTS and 75% of Spurs’ matches have had the same result. 

BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE

Inter v Barca 

Internazionale have been on a bad run of form recently, only winning two of their last six matches (W2-L4). They currently sit ninth in Serie A and are eight points off the league leaders Napoli. However, their form is not as bad as it appears on the surface, with them playing four teams inside the top six, three of which were away.  

Barcelona have only conceded one goal during their La Liga campaign, an away match against Real Sociedad which they won 4-1. It must be said that they have had a rather easy string of games so far and they lost their first real test of the season against Bayern last time out. The average current league position of their opponents so far has been 14.43. 

Inter have really struggled against Spanish sides over the last couple of years (since 2018/19), they have only won one of their last ten games against such teams which was against Getafe (2-0). Their overall record in this time period is W1-D1-L8 with their only draw coming against Barcelona but were bested three other times by the Catalan giants. 

They have played each other four times since the start of the 2018/19 season, two games finished 2-1 and the other Barca win ended 2-0. The two Inter home games ended 2-1 and 1-1. 

This leads us to our bet which is BTTS, we think this is the best option because whenever either side have played a team of actual quality (inside the top 10 of their respective leagues), that result has come off in every game. 

BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE

Liverpool v Rangers 

Liverpool are really struggling for form at the moment. They did well at the weekend to come back from 2-0 down to Brighton, but then gave away a cheap goal when they were a goal up to end level. The previous Champions League finalists were humbled in their return to the competition with a 4-1 defeat in Naples, though bounced back with a narrow home victory over Ajax. 

Rangers are currently goalless through their first two games back in Europe’s elite competition. This may be the perfect time to get a result given the recent for of their opponents, though there is still likely to be a gulf in class. They pummelled Hearts at the weekend by four goals to nil, though Hearts did play over half the game with 10-men. 

If this was any other year, we would have recommended a Liverpool win-to-nil but this current Liverpool side doesn’t seem capable of stopping Rangers attack. Antonio Colak has scored 11 goals already this year, averaging a goal every 92 minutes for the Scottish side.  

A trend that has continued in Liverpool games, even through this poor run of form, has been the overs market with five of their seven games finishing with three or more strikes. They’ve also had this result come off in three of their four home matches this year. 

LIVERPOOL TO WIN AND OVER 2.5 GOALS
