Conclusion & Betting analysis

I think this is going to be a very tight game between two teams who will fight hard for a result. I don’t expect there to be many chances in this clash and it is a 0-0 contender in my eyes. I looked at backing some sort of under but the goal line is between 2 and 1.75, so no real value. These are the type of teams I never like to bet against because they will properly fight for everything over the 90 mins and leave nothing out there. One set piece or mistake / individual moment could decide proceedings. It will be an intriguing watch tactically and I doubt much will separate the sides come the end.

Prediction: 0-0

Recommended bet: None
