Friday night’s football game is more of a traditional look at it. The German Bundesliga as well as the French Ligue Un both returned last weekend, and we’ve got two mouthwatering games in each league. In Spain, the La Liga starts back again with Osasuna playing Sevilla at home, and in the Championship there are two teams who were relegated playing each other when Watford faces Burnley in the Vicarage Road stadium. Vicarage Road.
19.30: FREIBURG V BORUSSIA DORTMUND – BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE & OVER 2.5 GOALS
Freiburg was unable to win their first DFB Pokal game against Kaiserslautern but beat them during Extra Time and defeated Augsburg with a score of 0-4 in their debut Bundesliga game on Saturday. Dortmund defeated opponents Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 in their first Bundesliga match of the season. They also took the victory in their Cup match by beating 1860 Munich 0-3.
Dortmund scored 85 goals during the season however they it signed three centre forwards in the course of the transfer window: Ajax’s Sebastian Haller, Cologne’s Anthony Modeste and the RB of Salzburg’s Karim Adeyemi. Modeste and Adeyemi will take on the scoring responsibilities until Haller is back, having been diagnosed with testicular cancer shortly after signing with BVB.
The team should be successful as well; Modeste scored 50 goals in 113 games for FC Cologne while youngster Adeyemi scored 26 goals over 35 league matches for Salzburg in the past two seasons. He also scored five Champions League goals over his two seasons in Austria.
The hosts have always put up an impressive fight whenever Dortmund arrive in town They’ve won one in their last five games here, taking two victories and drawing the other two. Overs being involved in four of those matches and they were impressive in their opening day’s 0-4 defeat of Augsburg. Both teams enter this match with plenty of new players at their disposal and are both aiming for victory here. Both Teams to score and more than 2.5 Goals will be a great option for this match.
20.00: WATFORD V BURNLEY – BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
Both teams should be satisfied with their respective start in their Championship campaigns, with four points from a potential six. Watford defeated Sheffield United before drawing with West Brom while Burnley beat Huddersfield before drawing with Luton Town. The away side has enjoyed an advantage over the hosts in recent matches with three wins in the five matches at both venues as well as winning three times in the last five games played in the Vicarage Road stadium. Vicarage Road.
The home team has lost just one of their five competitive home games with one draw and losing three, with BTTS and Overs occurring in three of the games. The Clarets have, in their most recent games at home scored two wins drawn two games, but lost one, with BTTS being involved in three games, and in fact, in one game, which featured an away win of 1-2 against the Hornets. It is difficult to imagine either team maintaining a clean sheet in this instance, as both teams have started the season well. the best bet is both Teams to Score, which comes with quite decent odds.
20.00: NANTES V LILLE – BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE, NO DRAW
Nantes have drawn the Ligue Un opener 0-0 away to Angers while Lille defeated Auxerre effortlessly in a comfortably 4-1 win at home. It’s been 14 matches since Nantes could beat Lille when they played at home, and that win came at the end of 2004. Over their last five games on the Stade de la Beaujoire, the team from Nantes have won four, with one game ending in a draw. Of their five league matches, the hosts have won only one, with three games ending with a draw, and one losing game that BTTS was defeated in four games with Overs happening in three.
Lille is the winner of two times, drawn one, and dropped two out of the five league games scoring 10 goals and conceding nine goals with BTTS and Overs being seen in four of the five games. At home, they have won two games, drawn one and lost two, with BTTS and Overs appearing in three of the five matches. It is interesting to note that the previous season Nantes only had four draws at home from 19 games. Lille only drew five of their away fixtures and with so few draws in previous matches between the two teams, we need to take a look at the enticing odds of BTTS and No Draw here.
20.00: OSASUNA V SEVILLA – SEVILLA TO WIN
Let’s get started with a fantastic statistic for this one. If they were rated as the favourites to win La Liga last season Sevilla was able to win 97% of their games. Sevilla fans are concerned, as four of their first team players have been allowed to go, which has brought the total to around EUR85m however Sevilla have just signed 2 players from Real Madrid, Isco as well as a Brazilian defenseman named Marco who has, as at present, not yet been a player out for the national team. But Sevilla has defeated Sevilla in 4 of the previous five matches at both venues and in games on Estadio El Sadar. Estadio El Sadar has won three times and drawn twice.
Osasuna ended the season in La Liga going six games without a victory, with three draws and three losses when playing at home, they have won two of their last five games while drawing one but losing two. Sevilla struggled to cross the finish line and finished fourth after being close to Real Madrid in the second position throughout last season. However, with their excellent record in this league when compared with Osasuna’s inconsistent performances at home in recent months, we must go with Julen Lopetegui’s team Rojiblancos.
