On Friday evening, teams struggling in the second half of the tables will try to make amends and stave off the specter of relegation. bet365 Sports covers all the important matches in Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Bundesliga, where all home teams are expected to have a difficult mission.
Düsseldorf goes for Third Victory in the Bundesliga
After staging an incredible comeback last weekend against Bayern, Düsseldorf will try to win for only the third time this season. They have home pitch advantage against Mainz, but past performance isn’t encouraging and that’s why both teams get identical odds of 17/10 at 888 Sport. A draw would keep them both afloat, although the visitors will benefit more from such an outcome, which is priced at 23/10.
No Room for Error in Cardiff vs Wolverhampton Match
Cardiff is tied with two other teams for the last place in the Premier League and the team is in dire need of victory on Friday. The match is scheduled at 8 PM UK time and it’s actually the visitors who are favorites to win at odds of 11/10 with Intertops. By comparison, a bet on the hosts to win for the second time this season benefits from odds of 18/5, while we only get 21/10 for a draw.
Relegation Threatened Rayo Vallecano Takes on Eibar
Rayo Vallecano’s objective of avoiding relegation is far from secured, as the team is struggling in the dangerous area. They don’t have any injuries ahead of the match with Eibar, but they still get only odds of 14/5 at Winner Sports. That’s mainly because the visitors have won the recent match against Real Madrid in emphatic fashion last weekend so they are credited with the first chance and odds of 3/2.
St Etienne Keeps the Dream Alive in Ligue 1
St Etienne sit in the sixth place, but they are just four points behind runners up Lyon and can close the gap on Friday. That’s because they play at 7:45 PM UK time in front of their fans against Nantes, a team famous for its poor performance on the road. Punters who are willing to bet on the home side to prevail can expect odds of 11/10, with excellent value of 23/10 offered on the match to end undecided.
