Well, the first weekend of the season is well and truly underway, with several shock results already. Plzen were held yesterday, and Austria Vienna lost 4-0 to Wolfsberger after an early red card put them on the back foot. We have picked some great winners – Salzburg -2 @ 11/10, -3 @ 12/5, -1 2nd Half @ 11/8 as well as Win Both Halves @ 4/5. Sparta Prague + Over 2.5 @ 11/10 was the only in that game, and the best possibly was Dinamo Zagreb + BTTS @ 11/5 – and at 3-1 down with 10 minutes left, that was the most unlikely.
Today brings around my favourite double of the weekend – two sides who have brilliant form against their opposition:
- Lech Poznan/Slovan Liberec – 3.9/1
- Add Basel, Anderlecht, Sligo and Shakhtar to boost it to 15/1, and qualify for William Hill’s Acca Insurance
My weekend rests on these games – both are DNB in my bet, and the rest have won so a draw minimum is okay!
Slovan have beaten Ceske in their last 5, all by at least 2 goals or more. Lech have a good record against Gornik, winning their last two away games against them and unbeaten in the last 5. The other four should be bankers, all between 2/9 and 4/9. Luzern went to extra time thursday, and penalties so Basel should win there. Sligo usually batter the team they are playing today, and Shakhtar should muller Metalurg Zaporizhya, who are usually the whipping boys of the league. 2/9 is one for an acca, but -1 and -2 should be good shouts there. Anderlecht have no previous games against newly promoted Mouscron, but are heavy favourites and in excellent home form.
Best of luck
