Best Tip: Both teams to score

Here is a pair of effective, attacking teams going head-to-head and, as such, we're predicting both of them to score at least 1 goal during the 90 minutes. Can respective managers Edin Terzic or Xabi Alonso find a tactical plan to top their opponent? Latest form statistics and historical head-to-heads, as well as the latest odds from the bookies, show that doesn't seem likely.
