European Football Returns with Promising Matches on Friday EveningPublished December 20, 2019 by Florin P
AS Roma, Dortmund and Granada play difficult games away from home against resurgent teams on Friday.
This Friday is special for football fans, as top-notch games are already scheduled in the most important European Leagues. The German Bundesliga, the Spanish La Liga and the Italian Serie A bring out the big guns, in matches scheduled in the evening.
Hoffenheim Seeks Back-to Back Victories
Hoffenheim struggled recently and the team’s inability to win consecutive matches caused it to plummet into the second half of the Bundesliga. They are now trying to win two games in a row for the first time this month, but they have a difficult task at hand. They will play against Dortmund who comes to town hungry for points after splitting them in the previous match.
Hoffenheim is allowing a high number of goals regardless of venue, so the odds of 3/1 offered by 888 Sport are justified. The visitors also have a predisposition for allowing goals against offensive teams and won’t hold back in this game. Dortmund has a poor record away from home, so punters might take the odds of 3/4 with a pinch of salt.
Granada Try to End the Slide on Friday
The first half of the season was pretty strong for Granada, at least in the games played in front of their fans. Recently, the team has allowed more goals on the road, where they’ve won just twice in eight attempts. Eibar is normally a strong contender, but the Basques are also having a hard time keeping clean sheets recently, regardless of venue.
Even odds on an Eibar win would normally be regarded as excellent, especially with the team yet to draw a match at home. They are, however, harboring a losing record, with three victories and five defeats and they’ve allowed twice as many goals. bet365 Sports offers odds of 3/1 on Granada, while a double chance wager is priced at 4/5.
Fiorentina is Glad with Splitting Points against AS Roma
Fiorentina have prevented Inter Milan from winning the 8th game in a row on the road and will try to cause another upset this week. They will play against AS Roma in a match where a single point would be regarded as a satisfactory result. There are no players missing for the hosts, so the odds of 2/1 offered by Winner Sports on their victory are quite high. Meanwhile, AS Roma players are struggling with fatigue after playing games in the Europa League and Serie A, hence the odds of 13/10 on them to win.
