PSG Seeks 5th Straight Win
In the French Ligue 1, the reigning champions play on the second Friday match, starting at 7:45 PM UK time.

Something’s got to give when these two opponents clash in Paris and the hosts are the overwhelming favorite to prevail. 888 Sport offers odds of 1/5 on their victory, 6/1 on a draw and a massive 13/1 on the visitors to cause an upset. In the other match of the day, Nice look for their first victory in front of their fans, as they welcome Rennes.
Dortmund Try to Stay Within Striking Distance of Bayern
Borussia won the first home match and split points on the road, which keeps them close behind the reigning champions. Today they have the opportunity to briefly overtake the leaders, who are scheduled to play on Saturday. Frankfurt comes visiting and this is a poor traveling team in the German Bundesliga. Those who bet on the host to prevail can only expect odds of ½ at Winner Sports. If the visitors cause an upset on the road, those who bet on their win will cash in on odds of 6/1, while the draw is priced at 5/1.
Newly Promoted La Liga Teams Meet on Friday
Huesca is arguably the most impressive of the teams that have recently joined the Spanish first division. They scored two goals in each of the games played so far, all of them on the road. They defeated Eibar in the opening round, then denied Athletic Bilbao a chance to win. The crushing defeat suffered at the hands of Barcelona doesn’t put a dent in the odds of 13/10 offered by Intertops Sports on their victory. A double chance wager on the visitors not to lose will trigger odds of 3/5, while the draw is priced at 5/2.
Celtic Chases Easy Points on the Road
The reigning Scottish champions are traveling to St. Mirren for a match scheduled at 7:45 PM UK time which they are expected to win easily. Not surprisingly, bet365 Sports only offers odds of 1/5 on them to prevail in spite of not having home pitch advantage. The hosts are mired in a four-game losing streak and they will cling on the scoreless draw. If the match ends undecided, those who bet on the two teams to split points will enjoy profits corresponding to the odds of 6/1.
Friday Derby Rocks the Championship
West Bromwich Albion are trying to return to the elite of English football and so far they are on the right track. They are not within striking distance of the leaders, but the victory over Birmingham at 7:45 PM UK time on the road will bring three valuable points. The visitors will play offensive football, so it comes as no surprise that bookies offer odds of 13/10 on their victory. The hosts haven’t won any of the last nine official matches, so they rightfully get odds of 23/10 in spite of playing at home.
