It is the last weekend of July and we will try to finish this month in style. Some of the championships have already started and many more are about to begin as well, so we will have plenty of BTTS tips for the future.

|27th July||Palmeiras vs Vasco da Gama||NO|
|27th July||Dalian Yifang vs. Shandong L||YES|
Ad.Olympic vs. Campbelltown – Australia – South Australia
Despite the fact we will have many more options to choose from, we decided to pick another game from Australia. We love the Australian lower divisions and this is why we will present you another match from South Australia’s championship.
Ad. Olympic will face Campbelltown in a very serious encounter on Saturday. Olympic are chasing their opponents very hard, but they are still 7 points behind the 1st spot in the division, which is taken by Campbelltown.
With 1,67 points per game on average, Ad. Olympic will have to start playing much better if they want to reduce the gap to the first place. However, if they manage to win tomorrow, it will mean 11th consecutive game without a defeat for the home side, which is actually not a bad performance.
Campbelltown have played 18 matches so far this season- as many as any other team in the league, and they still have 6 points advantage over the second-seated team Ad.Blue Eagles.
Red Devils have scored 46 times and conceded only 25, so they have the best-attacking record and the 3rd best defensive record in the league. It is obvious that there is still room for improvement.
But Campbelltown are playing well and people can see this. A win on Saturday would mean 4th consecutive away win and 10th consecutive match away from home without losing.
Prediction – BTTS: YES
Palmeiras vs Vasco da Gama – Brazil – Serie A
The league leaders in Brazil Palmeiras will have an easy test on Saturday, at least on paper, against Vasco da Gama.
Palmeiras are one of the best home teams in the whole league and it is not a surprise that they are topping the table. They have won all of their 5 home matches this season, as they managed to score the opening goal in 82% of their all matches.
An interesting fact is that Campeao do Seculo failed to concede a single goal at home so far this season, which is quite a good defensive performance. Palmeiras scored 12 times in those 5 matches on home soil, so their future opponents will have to make sure they can put a very good display in order to find the net on Allianz Park.
Vasco da Gama have nothing to do with the promising season of Palmeiras. Gigante da Colina are finding themselves 15th with 12 points – only 3 above the relegation zone. However, the visitors are showing a good run of form lately – they managed to win 3 of their most recent 4 matches.
The thing is that these wins came at home, but Vasco da Gama may try to repeat the same display on Saturday. If we take a look at their record away from home, it will be difficult – 1 draw and 4 defeats so far since the start of the season, which means Gigante da Colina will have to put an incredible display so they can hope to steal something out of Palmeiras.
Prediction – BTTS: NO
Dalian Yifang vs. Shandong L. – China- Super League
After 19 matches in the China Super League, the championship is more entertaining than ever. This is the reason why we will present you another interesting Chinese encounter.
Dalian Yifang have appointed Rafa Benitez as a coach of the team a few weeks ago. The Spanish manager will have to make his new team play better and try to move them up in the table, higher of their current 8th position. The former Newcastle manager definitely has what it takes to achieve this, but he will need some time to implement his vision into his new team. Dalian won 2 of their last 4 home matches, drew 1 and lost 1, scoring 9 and conceding 7. The new manager`s task will be to improve the defence, so we can expect Dalian to start conceding less than before.
Shandong L. are flying high this season, but it seems they can’t enter the battle for the crown. They are 4th with 34 points, but the gap to the 3rd place is 13 points. Taishan Dui can easily win the “Best of the rest” award, as they are the first team right after the big 3 at the moment – Guangzhou Evergrande, Beijing Guoan and Shanghai SIPG. However, Shandong L.’s away form is what keeps them away from top 3. They lost 4, drew 2 and won 3 of their visits so far, and 89% of these matches ended with BTTS YES, which makes us think the same thing could happen again on Saturday.
