Football betting: Goals on agenda at Swansea City

Have your say

Simon Grayson will feel his side missed an opportunity against Norwich last weekend as the side were unable to get the better of their promotion rivals.

In the context of things a point may not be the end of the world as United had to rally back from 2-1 down in the second half.

After the disappointing midweek draw against Barnsley, United now travel to Swansea for another crucial match in the promotion run-in.

The Swans comfortably beat Doncaster in their previous home game and the side have recovered well from their derby defeat against Cardiff City.

United will know what they’re up against when playing Swansea and it took a fantastic comeback to take all three points when the sides met at Elland Road last September.

The visitors went into the break with a one-goal advantage, before two second half goals sealed a United win.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have lost only three times at the Liberty Stadium in the league since August and have won four of their past six there. United’s form on the road has been solid and they have only tasted defeat once in their last six. The main concern for Grayson is the amount of goals they are conceding away from home – 10 in the last six. This all makes the win index market a tough one to call with both sides in good league form.

At the current prices I would be tempted to have a small buy (bet higher) of United’s win index at 8 with Sporting Index.

United are still a constant threat going forward, but will have to be on top of their game to get past a tight Swansea backline that has been breached just twice in six home league games.

In the last three games United have played at Swansea there have been a staggering 15 goals scored. My advice would be to buy (bet higher) total goals at 2.8 with Sporting Index.
