SOCHI V ROTOR VOLGOGRAD
Sochi is the side with the most number of disciplinary violations on the pitch in the Russian Premier League this season. In fact, they have seen 2 red cards in the last 2 games too. So, it shouldn’t raise a lot of eyebrows if their next game against Rotor ends up seeing ‘More than 4.5 cards’ on Thursday. Sochi has won their last 3 games in a row to the core footballing fundamentals of this tie. Moreover, Rotor, who sit 28 points below Sochi on the points table, have not won against Sochi in the last 4 meetings and counting. We believe that Sochi should be the highly likely winners of this contest in the midweek – with more than 2.5 goals being scored by them alone.
As previously mentioned, we expect Sochi to score more than 2 goals alone in this game apart from winning the contest easily. This should be a 3-0 or a 3-1 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes when the sides meet this Friday.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
ODENSE V AALBORG
The 2-0 defeat by Sonderjyske in the previous round probably means for Odense a farewell from every chance that they can reach the 1st position in the relegation group that brings the placement in the playoffs. They now have 5 points less than their rivals in this match. Aalborg is in the lead, but with only one point less than the already mentioned Sonderjyske, the race for that 1st place will be exciting. The previous match between these two teams was very tight and tense. Aalborg won 3-2 at their stadium.
Aalborg has a better team at the moment, but that, of course, does not guarantee them all 3 points on this very difficult away game. In 4 of the last 5 head-to-head matches, both teams have scored at least 1 goal each, and I think this is now also the most cost-effective betting option.
Prediction: Both teams to score
