Football Bet of the Day: Berkane to be breached

Moroccan football fans
If you can deal with the scary lion, we'll go to Morocco tonight

"Berkane are the leaders, and are unbeaten, but they've only kept one clean sheet at home this season."

Back Both Teams To Score at 2.245/4

After New Year's Day in England proved to be a bit gloomier than anticipated, Kev's whisking us to warmer climes, as we visit Morocco.

Visitors to frustrate the leaders

RS Berkane v Khouribga
Thursday 02 January, 16:00

2020 kicked off with a 2-0 scoreline between Torquay United and Yeovil Town, which left us a couple of goals short.

Undeterred, we'll head to Morocco in search of our first win of the year. Leaders RS Berkane are facing Khouribga in the Botola Pro League, and I suspect both teams may have some joy in front of goal.

Berkane are top of the standings after picking up 21 points from nine matches, an unbeaten start to the season. They have scored in every single game, but at home they haven't quite been flawless. They have been held to 1-1 draws in two of their four league games at the Stade Municipal de Berkane, and they have only managed one clean sheet on home soil.

Khouribga are only just above the dropzone, and have been on the wrong end of some hammerings recently. However, the one thing they usually do is score. They have found the net in six of their nine league matches so far, including three of their four away games.

The last three matches between the sides have ended in score draws, and I'll back both teams to score again here at 2.245/4.
