Here are our latest Over or Under 2.5 goals betting tips and statistical predictions for today, tomorrow and the coming weekend.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Thursday 13th August to Wednesday 19th August

Barcelona v Bayern Munich – Over 2.5 Goals

Given the wealth of attacking talent that Bayern Munich have at their disposal, it comes as little surprise to see that ten of their previous 12 Champions League matches have delivered over 2.5 goals. This has also been the case in nine of the most recent 13 Barcelona games at this elite level, so the two goalkeepers should be set for a busy evening when the sides meet.

IFK Göteborg v IFK Norrköping – Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in six of the most recent nine Göteborg home matches at the top table of Swedish football, including in three in a row of late. As for Norrköping, seven of their last nine away games at this level have also served up three goals or more, so they have certainly proven exciting to watch when they have taken to the road.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Thursday 6th August to Wednesday 12th August

Ufa v Krasnodar – Under 2.5 Goals

It would be fair to say that Ufa are not the most exciting team to watch in the Russian Premier League, as 17 of their previous 20 matches have produced no more than a couple of goals. Given that seven of the last nine Krasnodar away games in the top-flight have also been of the under 2.5 goals variety, any deviation from this script would come as a surprise.

Aalesund v Viking FK – Over 2.5 Goals

Newly-promoted Aalesund have featured 12 times in the Eliteserien so far this season, with no fewer than ten of these matches serving up over 2.5 goals, so Lars Bohinen’s charges have certainly proven exciting to watch. What’s more, ten of the last 14 Viking away games at the top table of Norwegian football have also served up a minimum of three successful strikes.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 31st July to Monday 3rd August

Thun v Basel – Over 2.5 Goals

High-flying Basel have proven extremely entertaining to watch in recent weeks, with their previous five matches in the Swiss Super League producing a staggering 26 goals. It has been a similar story as far as Thun are concerned, as a minimum of three goals have been netted in eight of their last 11 games at this level, so more of the same is expected in this encounter.

St. Mirren v Livingston – Under 2.5 Goals

Livingston have not been the most entertaining of sides to watch recently, as seven of their previous ten matches in the Scottish Premier League have served up no more than a couple of successful strikes. Under 2.5 goals has also been the order of the day in five consecutive St. Mirren home games at this level, with the net bulging just four times across these contests.

Varbergs BoIS v Östersunds – Under 2.5 Goals

Over the course of their last seven top-flight fixtures, newly-promoted Varbergs BoIS have been involved in no fewer than five encounters containing under 2.5 goals. This is the sort of consistency that has been echoed by Östersunds on their travels of late, as eight of their previous ten matches at the top table of Swedish football have featured two goals or fewer.

Manchester United v LASK Linz – Over 2.5 Goals

Manchester United smashed five goals past LASK Linz in the first leg of this contest, meaning that five of their previous six matches in the Europa League have now delivered over 2.5 goals. This has also been the case in four of the last six games involving the Austrian outfit in this competition, so it would come as a surprise to see anything different here.

Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Thursday 23rd to Monday 27th July

ÍA v Stjarnan – Over 2.5 Goals

When it comes to their involvement in matches containing over 2.5 goals, ÍA have proven incredibly consistent in the Úrvalsdeild karla so far this season, with all seven of their encounters subscribing to this particular scoring model. Postponements have restricted Stjarnan to just four games this term, but three of these clashes have served up over 2.5 goals.

HK v Breiðablik – Over 2.5 Goals

Breiðablik have been delivering plenty of entertainment recently, with each of their previous five games at the top table of Icelandic football producing a minimum of three goals. This has also been the case in six of the seven matches played by HK at this level during the current campaign, so it would come as a surprise to see two goals or fewer when the sides lock horns.

Brann v Kristiansund – Over 2.5 Goals

Over the course of their last 17 matches at the top table of Norwegian football, Kristiansund have been involved in no fewer than 14 encounters in which over 2.5 goals have been netted, so they have certainly proven pretty exciting to watch. As for Brann, eight of their previous 11 games in the Eliteserien have also produced a minimum of three successful strikes.

Juventus v Sampdoria – Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in recent Juventus home games in Serie A, with 13 of their previous 17 fixtures subscribing to this particular scoring model. Sampdoria away matches at the top table of Italian football have proven similarly exciting of late, as a minimum of three goals have been netted in seven of their last eight contests on the road.

One of the major advantages of the over 2.5 goals betting is that once three goals have been scored in a game your selection has effectively won.
