Goals have been a feature of Hannover’s games all season

Borussia Dortmund v Hannover, kick off 7.30pm

Lay under 1.5 goals with Betfair

Tonight’s Capital One Cup game between Leeds and Chelsea looks best left alone from a betting perspective – Chelsea are bound to be jet-legged after returning from their World Club Championships exertions in Japan and who knows what effect that might have. Top German sides take their domestic cup competition seriously and with the Champions League out of the way for the time being, I expect classy Dortmund to field a strong side in their match against Hannover. Goals have been a feature of Hannover’s games all season – there have been 30 in their eight league games away from home but they know how to find the net, having notched 32 times in 17 games. They also concede plenty (31 in the same period) for an average of 3.7 goals per game. Both teams have scored in 13 of Dortmund’s 17 league games and only once all season have their games finished under Betfair’s 1.5 goals line, while the latter statement also applies to Hannover. There should be goals.


While Geoffrey Boycott might be right that India’s cricketers are not as good as they think they are, the two-match T20 series starting Thursday will bring fervent, sell-out crowds. T20 is what Indian cricket is all about these days, and I will be taking the 6/4 offered by Boylesports and Betfair that India win the series. It’s 9/2 an England win, and 6/5 the draw.
