Best Games For Over 2.5 Goals in Friday’s Action – 14/5/21

DC United vs Chicago Fire: Over 2.5 Goals – 7/10

The first game on this list of most likely matches to have over 2.5 goals in it comes from the MLS, where DC United host Chicago Fire at Audi Field in what is a battle of 11th against 13th in the Eastern Conference.

DC come into this match with just one win in four matches, winning their opening game of the season against New York City 2-1 Brendan Hines-Ike and Russell Canouse. Since then, they have lost to the likes of New England 1-0, San Jose Earthquakes 4-1 and Columbus Crew 3-1, meaning that the over 2.5 goals market has landed three times.

The Fire have somehow managed to be in worse form than the hosts, as their 2-2 draw against New England on the opening day has set the tone for their campaign. Chicago took the lead in this match with fifth and 11th-minute strikes from Robert Beric and Luka Stojanovic, but conceded two goals before the half-hour mark.

Raphael Wicky’s side have since suffered 3-1, and two 2-0 defeats against Atalanta United, New York Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union, meaning that two of Chicago’s opening four matches have yielded over 2.5 goals.

Both of these sides have the second-worst defensive records in the Eastern Conference, conceding nine goals in just four games.

Meanwhile, City come into this game on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, where second-half goals from Hakim Ziyech and Marcos Alonso condemned Pep Guardiola’s side to their fifth league defeat of the season. The Citizens only other game that has yielded over 2.5 goals in their last five matches was in their 2-1 away win at PSG thanks to strikes from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.

Espanyol vs FC Cartagena: Over 2.5 Goals – 6/5

Spanish Segunda league leaders Espanyol take on FC Cartagena at the RCDE Stadium, knowing that a win would put them on the verge of becoming champions, having earned promotion last time out against Real Zaragoza.

Three of Espanyol’s last five matches have seen the over 2.5 goals market land, in 2-1, 4-0 and 3-0 victories against Leganes, Las Palmas and Malaga. Whilst 16th placed Cartagena who are just one point above the relegation zone have seen just one match yield over 2.5 goals in a narrow 2-1 defeat away at Fuenlabrada earlier this month.

The last meeting between these two sides also saw over 2.5 goals, as Espanyol ran out as 3-1 winners at Municipal Stadium Cartagonova thanks to a late rally which saw three goals scored in the last 15 minutes of the game from Nico Melamed, Raul de Tomas and Javi Puado.

Espanyol have scored 66 goals in 38 matches this season, whilst Cartagena have leaked 47, which is the third-most of any team in the Segunda division. Raul de Tomas is also currently leading the race for the Golden Boot, with 22 league goals to his name this campaign.

Meanwhile, three of Brno’s last five games have seen over 2.5 goals in them in three defeats to Pardubice 2-1, Slovacko 4-2 and Mlada Boleslav.

The last time these two sides met in the league was back in January, where Slovan comfortably beat Zbrojovka 3-0 at City Football Stadium Srbská, where Jhon Mosquera, Michael Rabusic and Pesek all got on the scoresheet.
