Nimes vs Lorient – 37/40

Two relegation fighters go head-to-head with each other in Ligue 1 tonight, with the home side coming into this fixture in 19th place on 21 points, whilst Lorient are in 18th, just two points better off.

Nimes and Lorient have the worst defences in Ligue 1, having conceded 51 and 49 goals, which as a result has seen each side be involved in games with over 2.5 goals in three of their last five outings in the league.

Nimes did this three times in a row at the start of February in losses to the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco and Nice, whilst Lorient drew 2-2 with Monaco on 14th February, before suffering a 4-1 hammering at the hands of league leaders Lille on Sunday.

The last time these two sides met was in mid-December where Lorient won the game 3-0 at Stade du Moustoir thanks to goals from Quentin Boisgard, Pierre-Yves Hamel and Yoane Wissa.

This game is priced at 37/40 to have over 2.5 goals in it which are fair odds when taking the statistics into consideration - Click here to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City – 8/15

The next game on this list takes place in the Champions League, where Manchester City travel to the Puskas Arena to face Borussia Monchengladbach as firm favourites, as they are on a club record of 18 wins in a row, whilst the German outfit are currently eighth in the Bundesliga, without a win in their last four league matches.

City won 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal on the weekend, which was actually an anomaly in their last five matches, as this was the only one which didn’t produce over 2.5 goals, as they scored over three goals alone in their recent wins against Liverpool, Swansea, Tottenham and Everton.

Meanwhile, Gladbach have been involved in three games from their last four that have had over 2.5 goals of late, in two 2-1 losses against Mainz and FC Koln, as well as a 2-1 away win in the DFB Pokal against Stuttgart.

With City in such irresistible form, as well as Gladbach having one of the Champions League’s top scorers in Alassane Plea who has five goals in six appearances against the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk and Inter Milan, this promises to be an entertaining affair.

Atalanta vs Real Madrid - 8/13

Atalanta take on Real Madrid in what looks like another fascinating tie in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Italian side have moved up to fourth place in the Champions League following their 4-2 hammering of Napoli last weekend, and have scored 11 goals in their last five matches, with three of them yielding over 2.5 goals.

Real Madrid, however, have had just two games land in the over 2.5 goals market against Levante and Huesca in the crossover of January to February.

Atalanta are a team that are known for providing entertainment all around, as Colombian strikers Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel have 23 goals between them in Serie A, whilst they also have a leaky defence, as proven in their 3-3 home draw with Torino on 6th February.

This game is priced at 8/13 to have over 2.5 goals in it, and when you consider the Italian side’s goalscoring and defensive records, it is easy to see why.

Barcelona v Elche 1/3

A crucial fixture takes place in La Liga, as Barcelona take on Elche at Nou Camp, with Ronald Koeman’s side desperately needing all three points if they are to challenge for the league title this season, whilst Elche are looking to survive the drop.

Barca have recently had three matches involved in the over 2.5 goals market, as they beat the likes of Real Betis 3-2 early on in February, before beating Deportivo Alaves 6-1. They also suffered a 4-1 defeat at the hands of PSG in the Champions League last week.

Two of Elche’s last three fixtures have had over 2.5 goals in them, as they drew 2-2 with Villarreal at home on 6th February, before losing to Celta Vigo 3-1 just a week later.

Koeman’s side come into this match with the best attack in La Liga having scored 50 goals, which is five more than league leaders Atletico Madrid, and with top scorer Messi on 16 goals in the division, it would be hard to foresee anything other than a bigger scoreline than the two sides’ meeting last January where Barca won 2-0 at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

This match is priced at 1/3 to have over 2.5 goals in it, and when taking into account Barca’s goalscoring records, this comes as no surprise.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolfsberger 1/2

Tottenham Hotspur take on Austrian Bundesliga outfit Wolfsberger on Wednesday night, due to Arsenal hosting Benfica on Thursday.

The last time these two sides met, Spurs made light work of the Austrian’s as they ran out as 4-1 winners in the first leg, thanks to goals from Son Heung-Min, Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius.

Four of Tottenham’s last five matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals, dating back to their 5-4 FA Cup loss to Everton at Goodison Park on 10th February. Wolfsberger, on the other hand, are fifth in the Austrian league as it stands and are 16 points behind league leaders RB Salzburg as it stands.

Regardless of lineups, Tottenham will expect to have a comfortable evening due to the quality in their squad, and over 2.5 goals in this game is priced at 1/2 - Click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!
