Football Bet of the Day: Boom shaka-Daka

Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch
Jesse Marsch is closing in on another title with Salzburg

After picking up an odds-against winner in England, Kev's on the hunt for more profit in Austria.

"Salzburg have won seven straight home games, and Patson Daka has scored in five of them. He also netted in Sunday's win at Wolfsberger."

Back Salzburg to win and Patson Daka to score at 1.814/5

Title-chasers to win again

Salzburg v Wolfsberger AC
Wednesday 28 April, 17:30

Success in Somerset last night, as Yeovil Town did all the heavy lifting for us in a 3-0 win over Solihull Moors. Joe Quigley gets a virtual pat on the back for whacking in a hat-trick.

We'll head to Austria now, because perennial Bundesliga bosses Salzburg are closing in on another title, and they're up against a Wolfsberger side they have just beaten 2-1. Yes, yes, I know we should really call them RZ Pellets WAC, but let's keep things simple.

Salzburg do throw in the odd weird result now and again (they recently lost 3-2 at Swarovski Tirol), but their general form is exceptional. Jesse Marsch's team have won seven games in a row at home in the top flight, and they have scored 22 goals in the process. Overall, they have won 13 of the last 15.

Salzburg have plenty of promising performers, but arguably the most impressive is Zambian striker Patson Daka. The 22-year-old scored an early opener in Sunday's win at Wolfsberger, and he has now netted 24 goals in 23 Bundesliga appearances this term. He got 24 last season, so his consistency has been highly impressive.

If you look at those seven straight home wins in the league, Daka has scored in five of them, and he has twice netted a hat-trick in that sequence. On 17 occasions in the league this term, Salzburg have won and Daka has scored in that victory.

Wolfsberger have lost three of their last five matches, and I think Salzburg will get the better of them here. I'll back Salzburg to win and Daka to score at 1.814/5.
