Teams are pretty even on class. The outcome will probably be decided by one single mistake. We can't pick the favourite of this match, so we offer to place a bet on a draw, it will be a positive result for both sides.
Our prediction - draw
4 out of 5 most recent head-to-head matches ended with a high score, but this time both teams have problems in the offense. We think that opponents will turn their attention to defense, so we are not expecting more than two goals to be scored in this game.
Our second bet is on total under 2,5 goals
