We are going back to the French Ligue 2 on Tuesday and our NAP comes from the match between Le Havre and Istres. Both have an identical league records of P7 W1 D4 L2. Istres have scored in all eight of their competitive matches this season and conceded in seven of them. Those matches have totalled 29 goals at an average of 3.6 goals per game. Hosts Le Havre have a similar profile, scoring in six of their nine competitive games and conceding in eight of them. All four of Istres’ away games have seen both sides scoring and interestingly all have gone over 3.5 goals. Le Havre have scored 8 at home in their last two and everything points towards both sides having enough firepower to find the net. Both teams to score @5/4 is too big in my opinion.

Staying in France’s Ligue 2 we have another match that looks over priced for both teams to score. League leaders Angers travel to Troyes having scored in all 8 of their competitive matches this season, keeping just one clean sheet in the process. Their away form reads P4 W2 D1 L1 but of interest to us is that all of those games paid out for both teams to score. Troyes are strong at home winning all three and conceding just once. However they have yet to entertain a side as attacking as Angers and I fancy both sides to score here. Finally, Burnley and Nottingham Forest meet in what should be a highly entertaining match if both sides bring their A game. Forest’s latest match scores read 2-2, 2-2, 3-2, 2-1 and they have scored in all of their 10 games this season. Burnley are in terrific form and are unbeaten at home in 10 games, scoring in all of them. Again this looks set up for both teams to score.
