Monday's Football Matches to Bank on

ESTONIA V WALES

Estonia are hoping to win again after their last result, a 2-0 WC Qualifiers - Europe victory vs Belarus.

In that game, Estonia had 58% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 3 on target. For Estonia, the goalscorers were Erik Sorga (58') and Sergei Zenjov (90'). Belarus had 7 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.

Thomas Häberli's Estonia have managed to score a sum total of 5 times in their preceding six outings. The comparative number of goals that they have conceded in that time is 11.

Previously, Wales drew 2-2 in the WC Qualifiers - Europe match with Czech Republic.

In that game, Wales managed 49% possession and 16 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. For Wales, the goals were scored by Aaron Ramsey (36'), Danny Ward (49' Own goal) and Daniel James (69'). For their opponents, Czech Rep. got 12 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Jakub Pešek (38') scored for Czech Republic.

The trend of at least one team not managing to score in games involving Wales has become noticeable of late. Examining their last six outings reveals that it’s happened 5 times. During these clashes, opposing sides have managed a goal tally of 7 while Wales have scored 5. That trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, however.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

REAL ZARAGOZA V HUESCA

Real Zaragoza will play in this fixture coming off the back of a 0-0 La Liga 2 drawn match against Real Oviedo.

In that match, Real Zaragoza managed 64% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Real Oviedo got 8 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Real Zaragoza have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Real Zaragoza have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 5 goals along the way.

Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Tenerife in La Liga 2 competition, SD Huesca and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

In that match, SD Huesca managed 55% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for SD Huesca was Joaquín Muñoz (31'). For their opponents, Tenerife got 9 shots at goal with 3 on target. Àlex Corredera (34') and Samuel Shashoua (56') scored for Tenerife.

Ignacio Ambriz's SD Huesca have found the back of the net 7 times in the course of their most recent 6 matches. The number of goals that they have conceded during that period equals 9.

Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals

O'HIGGINS V SANTIAGO WANDERERS

O'Higgins will be hoping for a better result following the 3-2 Campeonato Nacional loss in their previous game against Unión Española.

It’s not been often in recent times where O'Higgins have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, O'Higgins have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 11 goals along the way. That pattern won’t necessarily follow through here, though.

In their previous game, Santiago Wanderers drew 1-1 in the Campeonato Nacional match with Deportes Melipilla.

The numbers tell their own story, and Santiago Wanderers have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 6 goals in total. At the back, Santiago Wanderers seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.

Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
