4 European Teams And Goal/Goal Returns This Season

Lyon has also been seen to deliver goal/goal returns in Ligue 1

The goal/goal bet option has remained one of the most rewarding and profitable for punters. And as the European season nears its end, it will become even more important.

Most offensive-minded teams- especially those that commit more players in attack- tend to record these results.

Even then, one of the luring aspects of this option is the fact that it does not totally depend on the full-time result. Once both teams score, at any point, then it becomes a successful bet.

A consistent pattern has emerged with these teams. Hence, some clubs in Europe have seemingly higher prospects of delivering goal/goal returns.

Here are four of them:

Brighton

For a team with a very limited budget, Graham Potter has done an admirable job with Brighton. Even better is the fact that they are very eye-catching.

After managing to survive relegation last season, they have improved markedly this term as they sit comfortably in 11th place.

Potter favours a possession-based game, which means that his men tend to build offensively from the box.

Potter’s men tend to score and concede in the same proportion

Yves Bissouma has been one of the team’s best players, able to progress comfortably with the ball.

The passing patterns, while unique are carefully moulded with players well conversant with the offensive movements.

As a result, they create a plethora of chances every match, although taking them has been the team’s Achilles. Only Burnley and Norwich have scored fewer goals than them in the Premier League.

The Seagulls tend to score goals and in almost the same proportion concede.

16 of Brighton’s matches so far have ended with both teams scoring. With four matches left to play, it is a smart decision for punters to back them.

Valencia

Valencia is placed 10th on the La Liga table and were only beaten on penalties by Real Betis in the Copa del Rey final. And yet, the feeling around the club are resentment and frustration, mostly at the owner, Peter Lim.

The club has chopped and changed managers in the last few seasons. Indeed, they only managed to stay off relegation in the final weeks.

Jose Bordalas joined from Getafe at the start of the season and has made decent progress. However, his style of play is still been frowned at by the locals.

Bordalas’ men tend to do very little without the ball but plenty with it. Like his former teams, Los Mucielagos find more pleasure in tackling and pausing the momentum of the play.

Valencia’s indiscipline causes them to concede

And yet, they have been largely stable. Of course, the team’s indiscipline has caused them a few points, especially with penalty concessions.

So far, they have delivered 22 goal/goal results in 33 matches. This is an exciting option for intelligent punters interested in goal/goal returns.

Atalanta

The Serie A side has not been its formidable self this season. In fact, sitting in eighth position does not tell the entire story.

They failed to qualify for the second round of the Champions League even though they had a better chance than in previous editions. They have also been knocked out by Leipzig in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

And while they have signed Jeremy Boga and still play some entertaining football, they have struggled to finish off teams.

Atalanta has a risk-it-all principle

No team has registered more draws than Le Dea in the top half of the table. Gian Pero Gasperini’s high-risk high-reward principle has cost them at times in defence.

 They have registered 23 goal/goal results this season. With four matches to play, this seems a very sound option for punters.

Borussia Dortmund

Perhaps, based on how the Black and Yellows have fared in the Bundesliga, this season would be termed a success. However, they were utterly shambolic in Europe.

First Marco Rose’s men failed to qualify from the group stage in the Champions League. And then they lost out to Rangers in the round of 32 in the Europa League.

Of course, Erling Haaland almost guarantees goals every week. The Norwegian has scored 18 goals in an injury-laden season.

Dortmund cannot stop conceding

However, the defence has been anything but impregnable. Only Hoffenheim has conceded more goals than Dortmund amongst the top-half teams.

These days, they are known to press aggressively high out of possession. They expend so much energy that it is hard to keep up the intensity for the entire duration. They also play a particularly high defensive line.

As a result, they tend to concede goals once found out.

23 out of 31 matches involving Dortmund have ended with both teams on the score sheet.
