CLIFTONVILE V WARRENPOINT
Cliftonville will be looking for another win after the 1-3 Premiership victory versus Dungannon Swifts.
Cliftonville have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets recently, but they’ve also found ways to score goals themselves. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Cliftonville have seen their goal breached in 5 of them in addition to managing to get on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Glentoran in Premiership competition, Warrenpoint Town will be aiming to make amends here.
Jay Donnelly (25', 37', 60') scored for Glentoran.
The stats don’t lie, and Warrenpoint Town have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 15 goals in all. In defence, Warrenpoint Town can certainly do much better. Putting that to one side, time will tell whether such a trend might persist in this next game or not.
Heading into this contest, Warrenpoint Town have not won away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.
Prediction: Both teams to score
WOLFSBERGER V RED BULL SALZBURG
Wolfsberger AC, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-6 ÖFB Cup victory against Siegendorf.
It’s been all too rare in recent times where Wolfsberger AC have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Wolfsberger AC have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 10 goals on the way. That trend might not be carried forward into this game, though.
Going into this one, Wolfsberger AC have not registered a win against Red Bull Salzburg in their previous 2 matches in the league.
Red Bull Salzburg go into this game following on from a 8-0 ÖFB Cup win over SC Karlsdorf in their previous outing.
A run of hard-working performances from the Red Bull Salzburg defence has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their last 6 clashes in total. In that period, their own forwards have managed to score 17.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
ISLOCH V TORPEDO
Isloch Minsk Raion won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-1 Premier League defeat last time out to Dinamo Minsk.
Matches involving Isloch Minsk Raion have usually been engaging encounters lately with a lot of goalmouth action being a common characteristic. Over their past six games alone, a grand total of 21 goals have been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 9 of them coming from Isloch Minsk Raion. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will be sustained here.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Energetik-BGU Minsk in Premier League competition, Torpedo-BelAZ will be aiming to make amends here.
The trend of at least one side getting a clean sheet in games involving Torpedo-BelAZ has become evident recently. A glance at their last 6 meetings reveals that it’s happened 5 times. During those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal total of 6 and Torpedo-BelAZ have scored 5.
Prediction: Both teams to score
BEERSCHOT V EUPEN
Beerschot won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 3-1 First Division A defeat last time out to Oostende.
In that game, Beerschot managed 56% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player to score for Beerschot was Issa Soumaré (81'). For their opponents, Oostende got 16 shots at goal with 11 of them on target. Makhtar Gueye (5'), Brecht Capon (7') and Alfons Amade (66') scored for Oostende.
It has not been often in recent games that Beerschot have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Beerschot have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 16 goals in the process. Such a pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.
Coming into this contest, Beerschot are without a win at home for the past 5 league matches. That's never good.
Eupen go into this meeting following a 1-2 First Division A win against Cercle Brugge in their most recent fixture.
In that game, Eupen managed 53% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. For Eupen, the goals were scored by Edo Kayembe (19') and Emmanuel Agbadou (81'). Cercle Brugge got 12 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Charles Vanhoutte (35') scored for Cercle Brugge.
In a total of 5 of the previous 6 games involving Eupen, three or more goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per match during that spell is 3.17, with the average number of goals for Eupen being 2.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
