Espanyol v Real Sociedad

5th vs 8th both looking to secure positions in Europe this season, this should be a hard fought game but looking at their current statistics I will be placing on this game finishing with 2 or more goals so my bet will be to back Over 1.5 goals @ 79% of my current stake of £10 so I will be betting £7.90 on this match however because both teams seem to be late starters I will be backing Over 1.5 @ £3.95 at the beginning of the game and the further 50% after 32 mins providing there isn’t any goals scored.

I will add to this post after the game to update my progress and position, bet please feel free to visit all my progress at the System and progress page.

UPDATE:

Final Score:  Espanyol 1 – 2 Real Sociedad Bet Won the 2nd half of the bet didn’t get matched so the results were odds 1.44 stake £3.95 profit £1.74
