Robbie Savage’s picks
First up for Robbie is the Premier League clash between Leeds v Spurs, which could certainly spell goals. Leeds’ games are so often full of excitement, while Spurs boast the fourth best attack in the league with 60 goals, the division’s top scorer in Harry Kane with 21 goals and an in-form Gareth Bale fresh from last week’s hat-trick against Sheffield United. What’s more, the last time these two sides met earlier this season, Spurs ran out 3-0 winners in January.
Next up for Sav is the Championship, where he has first plumped for Barnsley v Norwich. These two sides have both enjoyed excellent seasons with Barnsley all set for the play-offs and Norwich having won the division, which could make for a goal-fest on Saturday. Norwich have struck three or four goals in their last two fixtures and will be hoping to keep up that trend at Oakwell this weekend.
Elsewhere in the Championship, Robbie has also gone for Bournemouth v Stoke. Only one side has scored more than Bournemouth’s 76 goals in the division this season so they are usually a safe bet, while four out of their last six games have seen three or more goals. Seven out of the last nine meetings between these two sides have also witnessed three or four goals.
Sticking with the Championship, Sav has selected a fixture involving two of his former sides: Blackburn v Birmingham. This is another clash with a history of goals, with three of the last six between the two sides seeing three of four goals hit the back of the net. There were also four goals scored in Birmingham’s most recent game, though with that being a 4-0 loss to Cardiff, they’ll be eager to turn the tables around against Blackburn.
Robbie’s fourth and final pick in the Championship is Bristol City v Brentford, which if this season’s form is anything to go by, should be full of a few goals. Bristol City have made a habit of letting goals in, with their 65 goals conceded the third-worst in the division, while, in contrast, third-placed Brentford have scored more goals than any other team in the Championship this term with 76.
Last but not least for Sav, it’s over to League Two where he’s opted for Exeter City v Barrow. With just one point separating Exeter and the play-off spots, they’ll be pushing hard for a few goals against struggling Barrow and will fancy their chances given they’ve already netted a joint-second high 70 goals this season. Barrow, however, can take heart from the fact that they saw off Exeter 2-1 the last time these two sides met in April.
