OMONIA NICOSIA V PAEEK
Omonia Nicosia will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 2-0 First Division defeat in their last game at the hands of Apollon Limassol.
Over their prior six games, Henning Berg's Omonia Nicosia have scored 6 times which gives them an average number of goals scored per match of 1.
In their last game, PAEEK drew 2-2 in the First Division match with AEK Larnaca.
The stats tell the story, and PAEEK have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 11 goals in all. Defensively, PAEEK certainly have room for improvement. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on here.
Prediction: Both teams to score
AEK LARNACA V ANORTHOSIS
AEK Larnaca enter this fixture following a 2-2 First Division tied result vs PAEEK.
AEK Larnaca have been conceding pretty frequently lately, although they have also found ways to score goals themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, AEK Larnaca have conceded in 5 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches.
Coming into this fixture, AEK Larnaca have not lost a league tie with Anorthosis Famagusta in their last 4 games.
Anorthosis Famagusta come into this game following on from a 2-1 First Division win with the eclipse of AEL Limassol in their last fixture.
Over the course of their previous 6 outings, Anorthosis Famagusta have helped themselves to a tally of 11 goals. Anorthosis Famagusta have also managed to score on each one of those occasions. In that time, their defenders have had 5 goals scored by their opponents. Nonetheless, time will tell if such a trend might persist in this upcoming game or not.
Going into this contest, Anorthosis Famagusta have left without a victory over AEK Larnaca when having played them away from home in the previous 2 matches in the league.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
BIRMINGHAM V MIDDLESBROUGH
Blackburn Rovers will be wanting a better result here following the 2-0 Championship losing effort in their last game against Hull City.
In that match, Blackburn Rovers had 52% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. On the other side, Hull City had 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. George Honeyman (7') and Tom Eaves (67') scored for Hull City.
In their last six games, Tony Mowbray's Blackburn Rovers have seen rewards for their attempts on goal a total of 9 times, with that being an average number of goals scored per match of 1.5.
Middlesbrough go into this clash following on from a 2-1 Championship win with the downing of Reading in their previous fixture.
In that match, Middlesbrough had 63% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. The scorer for Middlesbrough was Matt Crooks (84', 95'). On the other side, Reading got 10 shots at goal with 4 on target. Andy Carroll (68') scored for Reading.
A run of dependable displays from the Middlesbrough defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their previous 6 fixtures combined. In that time, their own attack force has managed to score 10. That trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, however.
Prediction: Both teams to score
