Friday Matches See Favorites Playing Key Matches on the Road

Struggling top-tier European football clubs try to make up for the recently lost points by winning difficult games on the road.

The first day of the weekend starts fast and furious across Europe, with a derby scheduled in all the important championships. The teams currently sitting in the second or third place, try to consolidate their positions, or make a last-ditch effort to overtake their leaders. They play against home teams struggling in the lower half of the standings, which makes them just as dangerous, as they are highly motivated to improve.

Marseille Try to Make Amends on the Road

Marseille squandered an excellent opportunity last time they had home pitch advantage after conceding an early goal against Lille. Key players were booked in the first half and one was sent off, which only made matters worse for the former champions. Now they try to pick up points on the road against Dijon and bet365 Sports gives them even odds to prevail. By comparison, the hosts are priced at 14/5 to win.

AS Roma Hope for Easy Points against Chievo

AS Roma have lost their spots among the top four and have even slipped into the sixth place after a poor streak in January. The team can return to its winning ways and reclaim a place that makes it eligible for the Champions League with a victory over Chievo. The match is scheduled at 7:30 PM UK time and those who bet on the visitors will be paid at odds of 7/10 by 888 Sport, while the hosts get odds of 4/1.

Villarreal are Narrow Favorites at Valladolid

Villarreal are one of the Spanish football’s biggest train wrecks this season, sitting in the second to last place. The threat of relegation is all too real and the team needs to turn the ship around quickly to avoid this humiliating fate. They have a decent opportunity to do so on Friday evening at Valladolid, who lost 4 of the last 6 matches. Winner Sports offers odds of 3/2 on the visitors, as opposed of 2/1 for the hosts.

Leverkusen go for back-to-back Victories

Leverkusen have caused the biggest upset of the last round in the German Bundesliga by defeating the reigning champions at home. Now they try to achieve something similar on the road against the lowly Mainz, a team threatened by relegation. Intertops offers odds of 9/10 on the visitors to win back-to-back games, while those who bet on the hosts can expect odds of 3/1
