Local Derbies & Traditional Rivalries

Local derbies are something special, and it is important for punters to be aware of these matches, since they are often very tight matches, where criteria like form and league standings have a lesser influence than in non-derbies.


All that matters, to players and spectators alike, is NOT to lose the derby!


Some local derbies have a higher tendency to end in a draw, because the fear of losing the game is higher than the will to win. Some are typically low scoring. Check the historical stats before betting on these ‘special matches’!


And bet with confidence, knowing that every player who takes the field will be giving it a 100% effort!
