Top European Football Leagues Give Punters a Weekend Sneak Preview on FridayPublished November 27, 2020 by Florin P
Each of the premier European leagues has scheduled one match for Friday evening in anticipation of what promises to a memorable football weekend.
There are only four games scheduled in the top European football leagues on Friday, but they provide excellent opportunities for punters. The teams playing are separated by just a few points and try to return to the first half of the tables in a highly competitive season start. These games are played in the English Premier League, the French Ligue 1, the German Bundesliga and the Spanish La Liga.
Low Scoring Game Expected between Crystal Palace and Newcastle
Crystal Palace and Newcastle have had a hard time winning back-to-back games and are currently mired in losing streaks. They tend to concede a lot of goals, while struggling to score, so they need to improve their performance at both ends. Crystal Palace doesn’t have any players missing ahead of this game and plays at home, hence the slight advantage. 888 Sport prices a home win at 11/10, while crediting the visitors with a second chance and odds of 17/10.
Rennes and Strasbourg Hope to End Losing Streak on Friday
Three consecutive defeats have derailed the plans of Rennes and Strasbourg, all triggered by a shaky defensive. Rennes is the better team, but it has a busy schedule with Champions League matches this week and will play on the road. In the match scheduled to start at 8 PM UK time, they are narrow favorites with odds of 3/2 at 888 Sport. They didn’t finish any of the last 10 games in a draw, something that Strasbourg can also say about their last five matches, so splitting points is an unlikely scenario.
Wolfsburg and Werder Put Undefeated Runs on the Line
Wolfsburg and Werder have greatly exceeded expectations recently, losing just one of the last nine matches regardless of competition. The team from Bremen stunned the reigning champions by denying them victory in Munich and its footballers are optimistic ahead of this fixture. In spite of their recent success, they are heavy underdogs with odds of 37/10 at bet365 Sports, as opposed to 7/10 on Wolfsburg. In the last 15 games, the hosts only lost to AEK Athens in a highly contested Europa League match.
Surging Valladolid Welcomes Reeling Levante
Valladolid is on a winning streak for the first time this season after winning back-to-back games with a combined five goals scored. Now they have home pitch advantage against a team that drew four consecutive games and won just once in the last 10 fixtures. Levante won a single match this season, hence the odds of 2/1 on them to prevail on the road. Betting on Valladolid to win the third consecutive game will produce odds of 3/2 at bet365 Sports, which is tempting value.
