A busy night of Europa League action last night ended with Arsenal maintaining their lead at the top of Group H and insuring they will qualify for the knockout stages, even though they lost 1-0 away at Cologne. It was a good night for Spanish La Liga clubs Villareal, Atletico Bilbao and Real Sociedad who all won last night and Villareal’s win insured they qualified for the knockout stage as Group A winners while Real Sociedad are a point behind Group L leaders Zenit St Petersburg who won at home against Vardar last night.
The weekend’s domestic football action get’s underway tonight with a Premier League encounter between West Ham and Leicester at the London Stadium and new manager David Moyes will attempt to instil some much-needed confidence in to his players and the frustrated Hammers faithful. The Hammers have won five and lost five of their last ten home games, seven ended with more than 2.5 goals, they’ve won five of their nine league home games against Leicester between 1998 and 2017 and six of the games ended with more than 2.5 goals, but they lost the last two in the Premier League. Leicester have only won two of their last ten away games, drawing four, five of the games ended with more than 2.5 goals and they are unbeaten in their last four Premier League away games (drawing three). From a betting perspective backing Over 2.5 goals, or if you are looking for a better return, Both Teams to Score ‘Yes’ and Over 2.5 Goals match double result should both go close to returning a profit.
