Monday's Well Predicted Soccer Tips From a Reliable Source To Bank on

BURKINA FASO V ETHIOPIA

Burkina Faso will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 0-1 Africa Cup of Nations success against Cape Verde Islands.

In that game, Burkina Faso managed 45% possession and 11 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player to score for Burkina Faso was Hassane Bandé (39'). At the other end, Cape Verde Isl got 7 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.

Kamou Malo's Burkina Faso have hit the target 7 times in their last six outings. Conversely, the tally of goals that have been scored against them in those fixtures amounts to 5.

Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Cameroon in Africa Cup of Nations competition, Ethiopia and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

In that game, Ethiopia had 50% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Ethiopia was Hotessa (4'). For their opponents, Cameroon got 17 shots on goal with 7 on target. Karl Toko Ekambi (8', 67') and Aboubakar (53', 55') scored for Cameroon.

Looking at their form, and Ethiopia have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in all. At the back, Ethiopia can certainly do much.

Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals

AC MILAN V SPEZIA

AC Milan are hoping to win again after their last result, a 3-1 Coppa Italia triumph vs Genoa.

In that match, AC Milan had 61% possession and 24 shots on goal with 7 on target. For AC Milan, goals were scored by Olivier Giroud (74'), Rafael Leão (102') and Alexis Saelemaekers (112'). At the other end, Genoa got 14 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Leo Østigård (17') scored for Genoa. The match was eventually decided in extra time and won by AC Milan.

Matches with AC Milan have often been lively ones recently with high scoring anticipated. Over their past 6 clashes, a total of 20 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 14 of them coming from AC Milan. Historical results aside, we’ll just have to find out if the trend shall be maintained in this upcoming game or not.

Spezia go into this clash following on from a 0-1 Serie A win in the defeat of Genoa in their previous match.

In that match, Spezia had 46% possession and 17 shots on goal with 9 on target. The only player to score for Spezia was Simone Bastoni (14'). At the other end, Genoa had 15 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.

It is worth noting that Spezia have suffered from a lack of goals over their previous six clashes, netting the disappointing return of just 4. In those matches, Spezia have also seen the collective goal tally against them equal 7.

Coming into this contest, Spezia are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

Prediction: Over 2 Goals

CAPE VERDE V CAMEROON

Cape Verde Islands will be looking for an improved result here after a 0-1 Africa Cup of Nations loss in their previous game against Burkina Faso.

In that match, Cape Verde Islands managed 55% possession and 7 shots at goal with 2 on target. At the other end, Burkina Faso had 11 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Hassane Bandé (39') scored for Burkina Faso.

Their latest results really do illustrate the point that there has been much resilience in the Cape Verde Islands rearguard. Cape Verde Islands have been mean at the back, with the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their previous six matches standing at 4.

Cameroon will go into the meeting following a 4-1 Africa Cup of Nations win as they beat Ethiopia in their most recent fixture.

In that match, Cameroon had 50% possession and 17 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. For Cameroon, goals were scored by Karl Toko Ekambi (8', 67') and Aboubakar (53', 55'). Ethiopia got 11 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Hotessa (4') scored for Ethiopia.

A sequence of reliable displays from the Cameroon defensive players has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their past 6 clashes combined. In that period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 15. Historical results aside, we’ll just have to find out if that trend shall be maintained in this upcoming match or not.

Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
