CSKA MOSCOW V SPARTAK MOSCOW
CSKA Moscow go into this match following a 2-2 Premier League drawn result vs Arsenal Tula.
In that match, CSKA Moscow managed 76% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 8 on target. For CSKA Moscow, the scorers were Igor Diveyev (5') and Fyodor Chalov (74'). Arsenal Tula had 9 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Yevgeni Markov (18') and Ivan Novoseltsev (66') scored for Arsenal Tula.
It’s been all too rare in recent games that CSKA Moscow have shown defensive steel. In fact, CSKA Moscow have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 8 goals in the process. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, of course.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Legia Warsaw in Europa League action, Spartak Moscow and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Spartak Moscow managed 52% possession and 23 attempts at goal with 3 on target. For their opponents, Legia Warszawa had 7 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Lirim Kastrati. (91') scored for Legia Warsaw.
The stats don’t lie, and Spartak Moscow have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. In defence, Spartak Moscow have clearly had some problems.
Prediction: Both teams to score
BURGOS V LAS PALMAS
Burgos prepare for this fixture following on from a 2-2 La Liga 2 draw against Amorebieta.
In that match, Burgos managed 50% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. For Burgos, the goalscorers were Juanma García (26') and Miguel Ángel (78'). At the other end, Amorebieta got 16 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Iñigo Orozco (5') and Asier Etxaburu (89') scored for Amorebieta.
An interesting trait of more recent Burgos games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their prior six clashes before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a loser.
In their previous game, UD Las Palmas drew 1-1 in the La Liga 2 tie with Ibiza.
In that game, UD Las Palmas had 60% possession and 13 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for UD Las Palmas was Alberto Moleiro (68'). At the other end, Ibiza had 7 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Sergio Castel (12') scored for Ibiza.
Throughout their six previous matches, Pepe Mel's UD Las Palmas have seen their goal attempts be successful 7 times - earning them a goals scored per game average of 1.17.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
AIK V GOTEBORG
AIK head into this game coming off the back of a 0-0 Allsvenskan tied result against Mjällby AIF.
In that game, AIK managed 47% possession and 10 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Mjällby AIF got 10 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target.
Their more recent scorelines show that quality has been evident in the AIK backline. AIK have been mean at the back, seeing the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their past six outings standing at 2. We will see if that trend can be continued on here.
Coming into this contest, AIK are undefeated in their previous 10 home league matches. It's been impressive.
IFK Göteborg will go into the encounter after a 2-0 Allsvenskan win as they beat Halmstads BK in their most recent fixture.
In that match, IFK Göteborg managed 59% possession and 12 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. For IFK Göteborg, the scorers were Tobias Sana (45') and Marcus Berg (63'). On the other side, Halmstads BK got 6 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.
During their 6 previous matches, Mikael Stahre's IFK Göteborg have fired home a total of 11 times - earning them a goals per game average of 1.83.
Coming into this contest, IFK Göteborg have not won against AIK when having played them away from home in the previous 5 matches in the league. Not good.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
