Fostiras vs Egaleo Football tips and predictions

Egaleo have taken just one point from their last three Greece. League 2 matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Egaleo are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Fostiras should prove no easy feat either – Egaleo haven’t won against any Greece. League 2 leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Fostiras have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Fostiras dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Greece. League 2’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Fostiras are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Fostiras and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Fostiras’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Egaleo are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Egaleo took a point away from Fostiras (1-1 draw).

Notably, Fostiras’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Fostiras have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Greece. League 2 away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Egaleo, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Egaleo getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Egaleo are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Fostiras hold the best away record in the Greece. League 2 (W8 D2 L1). Egaleo’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Fostiras’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Fostirasns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Fostiras win at 15/2 with bet365.
