BARNETT V EASTLEIGH
Barnet will be hoping to bounce back here following the 4-3 National League defeat in their last game at the hands of Grimsby Town.

Over their past six games, the sum total of 20 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 8 of those accredited to Barnet. We will just have to see if that trend will end up being continued on here.

For Eastleigh, goals were scored by Harry Pritchard (9') and Ben House (79'). Pierce Bird (1' Own goal), Michael Clunan (49'), Ethan Coleman (68') and Brett McGavin (85') scored for King's Lynn Town.
The stats don’t lie, and Eastleigh have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals overall. In defence, Eastleigh have clearly had some problems.
Prediction: Both teams to score.

DINAMO ZAGREB V SIBENIK

For their opponents, NK Osijek had 13 shots at goal with 3 on target. Danijel Lončar (65' Own goal) was the scorer for NK Osijek.
A common trait of more recent Dinamo Zagreb games is the number of nil scores.
From their prior sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 6 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a losing one. Despite that, it remains to be seen whether the trend shall be maintained here in this game.
