Well,well, well. Two poor teams who don't usually score many goals managed to get 6 between them last night and my wallet celebrated as they went flying in when FK Haugesund battered Viking by 4 goals to 2!
No one got that score of course and the news got even better as Brann finally got their first win of the season in impressive fashion as they beat Stroemsgodset 3 nil! A good day all-round in the Eliteserien!
It would be too easy to stick to Europe so today, I thought I'd look a little further afield. South America in fact and the Chilean Primera Division and the game between...
This is a game between two strugglers as we can see from the league table, although again, the season down there is only a few weeks old and there's lots of time for improvements to be made!
It could be an interesting encounter as Huachipato attempt to take advantage of an early game in hand and leapfrog Antofagasta. Both teams have only won at home this season and on current form are very tightly matched.
Looking back at their Head to head form, again we see a very similar record with 4 draws, 5 wins for Antofagasta and 5 for Huachipato.
The giveaway has to be the goals though. Antofagasta have banged 11 in but also conceded 11 so this could be a chance for Huachapito to improve on their pathetic tally of 2!
Prediction: Antofagast 2 : 1 Huachipato - First Goalscorer: Tobías Figueroa

The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
The Winners were...
