Asteras Tripolis vs Lamia
Competition: Greece Super League
Date: 9 September 2017
Kick-off: 15:00 CET
“Draw with goals”, at 4.75 betting odds was my tip for Asteras Tripolis’ game at AEL Larissa before the international break, and the game ended 1-1, absolutely perfect (if you had followed my suggestion). Both teams had chances to win the game, even in the dying minutes of the match they pushed for a second goal, but looking at the game as a whole, it feels that a draw was indeed the most appropriate result. Asteras were desperate for a positive result, after losing 2-1 to PAS Giannina at home on the opening weekend of the new Greece Super League season.
“Olympiakos to win and keep a clean sheet” was the suggestion you found here two weeks ago for Lamia’s home game against the current champions, and the game ended 1-0 for Olympiakos. Lamia… suffered defensively in the first half (more than in the second), but interestingly, the only goal of the match came from the penalty spot. Lamia had three good chances in the whole game, plus a penalty claim in the second half, and they may have lost the game, but they left good impressions, which should be enough for a newly-promoted team, playing against Greece’s… permament champions.

I do expect Asteras to win the game, but I don’t like the 1.65 this comes with. I’m going with goals instead.
Asteras Tripolis vs Lamia: Betting Tips
Betting companies seem to be absolutely certain this game won’t have more than two goals. Personally, having seen how Asteras played against Larissa, and even Lamia’s… relatively free “approach” to their game against Olympiakos (not… parking the bus, but actually trying to play football), I feel 2.55 for over 2.5 combined goals is just too-too good to ignore.
