Seven goal scores are remarkably scarce in football but for the second time this month we look ahead to a Champions League opponent who has recently scored that number in a single game. Helsingborgs went to town on Swedish Allsvenskan side Kalmar yesterday. Kalmar are struggling in the league this season but were faring better in Europe until Young Boys of Berne overturned a Europa League deficit against them on Thursday.
Form appears to vary widely in the Swedish league, not idea circumstances for placing a bet.
Midweek friendly internationals will not help Neil Lennon’s preparations as Celtic face the third of five games on the road in the Highlands on Saturday before heading to Sweden, especially as the early season injury count rises inexplicably. I would caution against risking too much on a bet on the Ross County game for this reason. County’s remarkably year-long run without a league defeat might stretch another week.
