After a great Saturday last week that generated massive profits, we are looking to do it again with these football tips from England, Germany and Holland. There is some amazing value here today, with a couple of markets being a long way off…
Mainz v Fortuna Dusseldorf – 2:30pm
Mainz have started this season in an uninspiring fashion, in a similar way to how they ended their last campaign. They’ve won twice this season, their only two wins in their last 10 league games, and scoring just 6 goals in the process. Hungarian Adam Szalai has scored 3 of the side’s 6 goals this campaign and will be their main attacking threat. Dusseldorf out performed during the 2nd half of their last game, clawing their way to a point after being 2-0 down to Schalke. Having kept 5 clean sheets already this term, their defensive strength will prove integral again, and against a side that aren’t the strongest going forward, we wouldn’t rule out a 6th clean sheet in 7 games. They’ve not conceded on the road and picked up 7 points from 9 (against a similar level of opposition). In our opinion the odds are severely skewed, so we are taking advantage.
Greuther Furth v Hamburg – 2:30pm
Here is another Bundesliga tie where the odds aren’t even close to where they should be. Greuther Furth have managed two goals in 6 this season, and have picked up just 4 points. Hamburg stuttered at the start of the season but their recent form has picked up and they are looking far more dangerous – scoring 8 in their last 4 games, including a 3-2 win against Dortmund, and a 2-2 draw with Monchengladbach. The home side have lost their last two games 2-0, and if we were backing a correct score, 2-0 Hamburg would be one of our favourites (along with 2-1 and 3-1).
West Ham v Arsenal 5:30pm
West Ham like to play a very direct style of football have had a very good return to the Premier League, winning 3 out of their opening 6 game, losing once. Many expected West Ham to struggle, but so far their style of football has proven to be very effective. Arsenal, who play a classy passing style of football come into the game full of confidence after making a great start to the season with their only defeat come in their last league game against high flying Chelsea. Fresh from a midweek Champions League victory, Wenger’s men will be looking to get all three points against a team they need to beat if they are going to compete at the top this season.
Vitesse v Heerenveen – 6:45pm
Vitesse have made a great start to this campaign, finding themselves ahead of both PS and Ajax. They now haven’t lost in the league since May, and have won 5 of their last 6, conceding just twice in the process. Heerenveen won their first game of the season last weekend, beating a poor Breda side 2-0 at home. On the road, they have held their own, only conceding twice in three games, but still not managing an away victory. Against an in form Vitesse, we can’t really see this changing, with Vitesse losing just once (v Ajax) in their last 11 at home. With Heerenveen struggling to score away from home, and Vitesse scoring in every game since February, this should only go one way.
