CFL: Lokomotiva – Slaven Belupo OVER 2,5 GOALS
Lokomotiva is offensive minded and very young team. They have 2nd best attack in the league – they scored 49 goals in 29 matches, and on of the 3rd worst defence of the league – they conceeded 43 goals, only Istra and Zagreb, two worst teams of the league, conceeded more. In those 29 matches, only 7 times less than 3 goals were scored. Weather is fine (cloudy and warm, almost ideal for football), the pitch is getting better after a week od 25 degrees Celsius.
Slaven Belupo beat Rijeka 3:0 in the Cup which means they have a chance to win the first trophy in the club's history – if they beat Dinamo in 90 minutes on neutral pitch in Osijek. They have 9 points more then 9th Istra, and with only 7 rounds till the end of the season, they can be quite relaxed. After 3 clean sheets in a row, I just can see another one – Lokomotiva scored them 6 goals in 3 matches they played this season (2:2, 1:1 and 3:0), and I expect another match with at least 3 goals.
Btw, odds movement suggest that Lokomotiva will win this one, I think that scenario is very likely too, but I wouldn't be surprised with 2:1 win and 1,72 for -0.75 AH doesn't offer any value.
