Friday Matches Pick up Where Champions League and Europa League LeftPublished December 14, 2018 by Florin P
The last mid-week of 2018 European football has ended, leaving the clubs to focus on the domestic leagues.
The last week of international European football has ended, but the race continues in the most important championships continent-wide. On Friday evening, German, French and Spanish first divisions have one match scheduled each, providing punters with great betting opportunities at bet365 Sports and 888 Sport.
Celta Vigo Try to Enter First Half of La Liga
Celta Vigo have a perfectly balanced record, with five victories and just as many defeats and inconclusive matches. Against Leganes, they won’t settle for a single point because they need a victory to enter the first half of the tables. bet365 Sports prices their victory at 9/10, a tempting proposition against a team that has won a single match on the road this season. Leganes will be gunning for a draw, currently priced at 5/2, while punters get odds of 7/2 on a straight victory for the visitors.
St Etienne and Nice Play in a Local Derby
St Etienne and Nice are nearly 20 points behind leaving PSG, but their goal isn’t to tie the reigning champions for the lead. Instead, these two teams try to secure a Europa League berth and even dream of a place on the podium. St Etienne are one point ahead, but they play on the road on Friday at 7:30 PM UK time, which explains the odds of 5/2 offered by 888 Sport on them to win. Nice will be desperately trying to improve their home record this season after losing four times and a home victory is priced at 13/10.
Nurnberg and Wolfsburg Fight to Avoid Relegation
In the second half of the German Bundesliga, the action is just as intense as it is at the top, with teams trying to remain in the first flight for at least one more season. Nurnberg have just left the relegation area and try to secure at least one point when Wolfsburg come visiting. They are not favorites in the match scheduled at 7:30 PM UK time and Winner Sports gives punters odds of 14/5 on them to win. By comparison, the visitors get odds of 11/10 and a draw is priced at 3/2 at the time of writing.
