CFL: Istra – Lokomotiva OVER 2.5 GOALS
CFL: (+0.25) ISTRA – Lokomotiva
We'll have two bets for this match. Over 2,5 goals best is a must – specially at these odds, as all 11 matches these 2 clubs played since August 2013 produced at least 3 goals. Lokomotiva plays offensive minded – they strongly hold the 1st place on O/U table – only 7 of 28 matches failed to produce at least 3 goals this season. To be honest, I'd take OVER 2,75 bet as well, so I'm more than happy to take OVER 2,5 at thee odds.
Istra has no selection problems – all the players are fit, no one is suspended. All the players were together during this international break. Quite opposite, Lokomotiva had 8 players in U-21 national teams of Croatia and Albania. If we take a look at the matches between these 2 clubs played in Pula in the last 2 seasons, we can see that Istra has 2 wins and 1 draw at home. Although they haven't won for a long time, they deserved to win much more than 3 points from 3 draws in the last 7 matches after the winter break. After all – they played 4 away matches – and shared points 3 times, they lost at home vs top 2 clubs only 0:1 and vs 1:2 vs Inter Zapresic. I definitely wouldn't be surprised if they win today, but even if they share points, we'll still earn almost half a point.
CFL: RNK Split – Hajduk DRAW
This is the match in which both clubs would be satisfied with a draw. Hajduk would remain safe on 3rd position, while Split would still be in fight for 4th place. I don't expect to see to many goals here, but as the main O/U margin is at 2.0, there's definitely no value there. 4 of the last 6 matches between these 2 clubs ended 0:0 or 1:1. No doubt that both teams will play defensive minded - Split because it's always important not to looe vs Hajduk, while Hajduk as they don't have really good attacker. I think another 0:0 or 1:1 is the most likely to be the result of this city derby scheduled for Sunday.
