After a decent couple of days (£129.60 profit from £20 stakes), I have two tips tonight and I am pretty sure George will have a few from the NBA as he looks to build on his clean sweep on Wednesday.
Roda JC v Twente (7pm)
An stuttering FC Twente travel to Roda in the Friday Eredivisie fixture. At the end of October, Roda managed to beat PSV 2-1 at home, so will be no pushovers here this evening. However, that is their only victory in their last 6 home matches, losing their most recent 4-1 to Eredivisie new boys Go Ahead Eagles. Last time out, Twente made light work of NAC Breda, winning 5-2. Breda and Roda are of a similar ability, despite the fact that Roda lost 5-1 to Breda at home earlier this season.
With one defeat in their last 7, but 3 draws, Twente know that they need to apply pressure to Ajax and Vitesse above them in the league. A win here will put them in top spot, if only for a day. Some of the Roda defence have been out all season so far, and it shows. With 13 conceded in their last 5 home games, it is a bad time to have to host the league’s top scorers.
Wolfsburg v Hamburg (7:30pm)
We backed Hamburg last week, and they didn’t disappoint. Against a weak Hannover side who have lost all away games this season VDV being out wasn’t an issue. For this game I expect the visitors to miss their captain and talisman, and ultimately I think it will be their downfall.
Wolfsburg have been impressive at home this season barring their shock 1-0 defeat to Braunschwieg. They have 15 points from a possible 18, beating Dortmund 2-1 and smashing 4 past Schalke. Olic has been in great form of late, and will likely keep his place up front ahead of Bas Dost. He will be supported by Perisic and Max Arnold who will cause all sorts of problems going forward. Luis Gustavo has been great for the home side this season and will break up play and protect the back four. Diego is suspended but I’m sure his absence won’t affect the outcome
All in all, I think these odds are great and I fully expect this to win comfortably.
Roda v Twente – Twente Win (1.83 – Coral)
Wolfsburg v Twente – Wolfsburg Win (1.87 – Bet Victor)
