This Week's Top Over / Under 2.5 Goals Season Stats - Wednesday 1st April
There cannot be many more exciting teams than Borussia Dortmund to watch in the world of football, with 21 of their 25 top-flight games in 2019/20 producing a minimum of three goals. As if to further emphasise the point, 51 goals have been netted across their 12 home matches.
At one point during the current campaign, Wolfsburg were involved in seven consecutive top-flight fixtures of the under 2.5 goals variety. Things have changed recently, however, as six of their last eight league matches have served up a minimum of three successful strikes.
In terms of their involvement in Bundesliga home games containing over or under 2.5 goals, Union Berlin have very much operated in patches. The newly-promoted side’s first four matches were all over, their next six were all under, and their last two have been over again.
When Mainz come calling, over 2.5 goals are virtually guaranteed, with 11 of their 12 away games in the Bundesliga this season delivering exactly that. In fact, so exciting have they been on the road, that a grand total of 51 goals have been netted across their 12 league trips.
This Week's Top Over / Under 2.5 Goals Season Stats - Wednesday 25th March
Over the course of the current Serie A campaign, 60% of the matches involving title-chasing Inter Milan have contained over 2.5 goals. Antonio Conte’s charges have proven particularly effective in such high-scoring encounters, claiming maximum points 12 times in 15 attempts.
Hellas Verona have divided their 12 top-flight home matches evenly between encounters containing over and under 2.5 goals. It has been an extremely different story on the road, however, as no more than two goals have been served up in nine of their 13 away games.
Fiorentina are a team who perfectly straddle the line between over and under 2.5 goals, with 13 of their top-flight results falling into each camp so far this season. La Viola have been involved in a quartet of goalless draws, as well as two encounters containing seven goals.
Relegation-threatened Lecce have the worst defensive record in Serie A, conceding 56 times in 26 matches, but they are the top scorers amongst the bottom-eight. Eighteen of their games have served up over 2.5 goals, and this has only failed to happen three times in 13 trips.
Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 13th to Monday 16th March
Newcastle United v Sheffield United – Under 2.5 Goals
Over the course of their last 15 Premier League matches, Sheffield United have been involved in just a couple of encounters in which over 2.5 goals have been netted, so Chris Wilder’s charges have been the epitome of consistency on this particular front. As for Newcastle, six of their last eight games at this level have served up two goals or fewer.
Union Berlin v Bayern Munich – Over 2.5 Goals
Not only are Bayern Munich a very strong side, but they are also extremely entertaining to watch, with over 2.5 goals being served up in every single one of their most recent ten away games in the Bundesliga. This has also been the case in seven of the last nine Union Berlin matches at this level, meaning that any deviation from this script would come as a surprise.
CSKA Moscow v Ufa – Under 2.5 Goals
Somewhat incredibly, 16 of the most recent 18 Ufa matches at this level have served up under 2.5 goals, including seven on the bounce of late, so they are not exactly renowned for bringing the excitement. The same accusation could definitely be labelled at CSKA Moscow, mind you, as seven of their last nine top-flight games have also produced two goals or fewer.
Arsenal Tula v Rubin Kazan – Under 2.5 Goals
Rubin Kazan love nothing better than a low-scoring encounter, with nine of their previous 11 matches in the Russian Premier League delivering no more than a couple of successful strikes. Under 2.5 goals has also been the order of the day in eight of the last 12 top-flight fixtures involving Arsenal Tula, so don’t expect too much excitement when the teams meet.
Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 6th to Monday 9th March
Sunderland v Gillingham – Under 2.5 Goals
Under 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in ten of the previous 12 Gillingham away matches at this level, with an ability to keep things tight meaning that Steve Evans’ charges have suffered just a single defeat during this period. As for promotion-chasing Sunderland, eight of their last ten games in League One have also produced no more than two goals.
Tondela v Boavista – Under 2.5 Goals
One area in which Boavista have proven incredibly consistent recently is in their involvement in top-flight fixtures containing two goals or fewer, with 17 of their previous 20 contests subscribing to this particular scoring model. Given that seven of the last ten Tondela home matches at this level have followed the same pattern, something similar is expected here.
RZ Pellets v Rapid Wien – Over 2.5 Goals
Over 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in recent RZ Pellets home matches at the top table of Austrian football, with each of their previous nine encounters falling into this particular scoring category. Although Rapid Wien cannot compete with these numbers, they themselves have been involved in six consecutive away games of the over 2.5 goals variety.
SV Mattersburg v LASK Linz – Over 2.5 Goals
Not only are LASK Linz taking control of the Austrian title race by consistently winning matches, but they are also doing so in entertaining style, with their last six fixtures producing a staggering 30 goals. What’s more, over 2.5 goals have been served up in ten of the previous 12 Mattersburg games at this level, and they lost 7-2 to these opponents back in October.
Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 28th February to Monday 2nd March
Albacete v Rayo Vallecano – Under 2.5 Goals
One area in which Rayo Vallecano have proven themselves to be incredibly consistent in recent months is in their involvement in second-tier fixtures containing under 2.5 goals, with ten in a row fitting this brief. Not only that, but ten of the 14 home matches played by Albacete in the Segunda Division this season have also served up two goals or fewer.
Lecce v Atalanta – Over 2.5 Goals
Atalanta have developed a reputation for bringing excitement to the Serie A table, with 11 of their last 12 matches, including each of the most recent five, delivering a minimum of three goals. Given that 11 of the previous 15 Lecce games, including five on the bounce of late, have subscribed to the same scoring model, a repeat performance is expected in this contest.
Rheindorf Altach v RB Salzburg – Over 2.5 Goals
RB Salzburg certainly provide their supporters with plenty of entertainment, as 17 of their previous 19 fixtures at the top table of Austrian football have delivered a minimum of three goals. Over 2.5 goals have also been netted in nine of the last 11 top-flight games involving Rheindorf Altach, so the pair should be able to conjure up at least three successful strikes.
Fuenlabrada v Alcorcon – Under 2.5 Goals
Under 2.5 goals has been the order of the day in recent Fuenlabrada matches at this level, with nine in a row subscribing to this particular scoring model. This has also been the case in seven of the last eight Alcorcon away games in the second tier of Spanish football, meaning that it would come as a surprise were the net to bulge three times or more in this clash.
Over / Under 2.5 Goals Tips and Predictions - Friday 21st to Monday 24th February
Crystal Palace v Newcastle United – Under 2.5 Goals

netted in any of their previous six clashes. Not only that, but 11 of the 13 Premier League fixtures staged at Selhurst Park this season have also been of the under 2.5 goals variety.
Lamia v Aris – Under 2.5 Goals
It would be fair to say that Lamia have not been the most exciting side to watch in Greek football recently, as 12 of their previous 14 games, including six in a row of late, have served up under 2.5 goals. Given that the last five Aris matches at this level have subscribed to the same scoring model, no more than a couple of goals are expected when the sides lock horns.
Hartberg v Rapid Wien – Over 2.5 Goals
Although Hartberg could hardly be accused of delivering consistency in terms of their results this season, it should be noted that 15 of their 19 top-flight fixtures have delivered three goals or more. Over 2.5 goals has also been the order of the day in 14 of the last 20 Rapid Wien away matches at the top table of Austrian football, including in each of the most recent five.
Atalanta v Sassuolo – Over 2.5 Goals
Atalanta are the great entertainers of Serie A, with 11 of their previous 12 matches serving up over 2.5 goals, whilst the net has bulged a staggering 23 times over the course of their last five meetings with Sassuolo.
