Offensive Football takes European Leagues on Friday EveningPublished October 4, 2019 by Florin P
Struggling teams are expected to throw everything they’ve got on Friday to pick up critical points in their quest for the top half of the standings.
Friday football afternoons and evenings are usually slow, with teams being more concerned about avoiding defeat than chasing victory at all costs. Things will be different this week, when the football clubs playing at home will settle for nothing less than three points. Marseille don’t have home pitch advantage, but they will be equally motivated to pick up a win and field an offensive starting formation.
Betis Sevilla Continue to Struggle Defensively
Betis have allowed more goals than any other Spanish team and this has prevented them from climbing into the first half of the standings. They have conceded 15 goals so far and scored 10 of their own, which is worrisome ahead of a match against Eibar. The Basques have achieved the impossible by scoring three unanswered goals, to offset a two-goal deficit against Sevilla. They will try to defeat the other team from this town at 8 PM UK time and bet365 Sports offers odds of 27/10 on them to prevail. Punters only get even odds on Betis to prevail, but a bet on more than 2.5 goals to be scored should also be considered.
Brescia Seeks First Points at Home
Brescia has a powerful offensive unit and the arrival of Balotelli has further boosted their chances to avoid relegation this season. It is a bit surprising that this team is yet to pick up a point in front of its fans, but there’s a good chance for this to happen on Friday. At 7:45 PM UK time they welcome Sassuolo, a team famous for drawing most of the games at half time and splitting points on the road. The visitors will probably aim for more this weekend, against a team that has conceded plenty of goals at home and lost all matches. 888 Sport offers odds of 3/1 on Brescia and 2/1 on Sassuolo to win on the road.
Hertha Eyes Victory Over Newly Promoted Düsseldorf
Hertha was only able to win one match in Berlin this season, but they could double the number of victories on Friday afternoon. They welcome Düsseldorf, a newly promoted team that has allowed plenty of goals regardless of venue. The visitors are unable to defend effectively and often take unnecessary chances upfront. This should provide the hosts with the opportunity of taking an early lead, which has proved to be fatal for the Bundesliga debutants. Odds of 17/10 on Hertha are available at Winner Sports, while punters will be paid at even odds if they choose the double chance bets on Düsseldorf.
