Friday 4 September

Pachuca 15/20
Draw 26/10
Atletico San Luis 33/10
(04:00)

Pachuca will be looking to get back to winning ways after their goalless draw at Guadalajara halted their winning streak. Atletico San Luis come off their straight defeats and have the joint-worst defence in the Mexican top-flight. Additional Totals – Over 1.5 Goals at 1/4 is good way to start your multiples.

Sangju Sangmu 15/10
Draw 21/10
Suwon Bluewings 18/10
(12:00)

Sangju Sangmu returned to the Sangju Stadium with a 3-1 victory over Incheon United, after losing 2-1 at the home of the champions Jeonbuk Motors two weeks ago. Suwon Bluewings ended a four-match winless run by beating struggling Busan I'Park 3-1. My money is on the hosts to claim their third consecutive win against Bluewings.

Shenzhen 14/10
Draw 24/10
Shanghai Shenhua 7/4
(12:00)

Shenzhen are unbeaten in three Chinese Super League games with two wins and a draw, while Shanghai Shenhua are struggling in contrasting form of two losses and a draw. Shanghai Shenhua were thumped 4-1 by Group A leaders Guangzhou Evergrande and are not trusted for the win. Both Teams to Score (Yes) is the way to go at 6/10.

Sheffield United 9/20
Draw 33/10
Preston North End 52/10
(13:00)

Sheffield United enjoyed an excellent first season back in the top-flight after a 12-year absence. The Blades comfortably retained their Premier League status by finishing ninth. Championship outfit Preston North End beat Mansfield Town 4-0 in the opening round of the Carabao Cup last weekend following three friendlies. The hosts should prove too strong for Alex Neil’s team.

Guangzhou Evergrande 1/8
Draw 7/1
Guangzhou R&F 14/1
(14:00)

Guangzhou Evergrande top the standings in the Chinese Super League and have been banging in the goals under the tutelage of Italian World Cup winner Fabio Cannavaro. Guangzhou R&F come into the clash with back-to-back defeats conceding seven goals at home. The home win is a banker.

Genk TBA
Draw TBA
Willem II TBA
(14:00)

Genk lost 2-1 at home to Club Brugge last weekend in Belgium’s top-flight but more interestingly 10 of their last 11 matches have seen both teams score. Five of Willem’s last six games has also seen both teams find the net. Take Both Teams to Score (Yes).

Sparta Rotterdam TBA
Draw TBA
ADO Den Haag TBA
(14:00)

Sparta Rotterdam come into the clash after three draws in three friendlies. Following three draws of their own, ADO Den Haag edged AZ Alkmaar 1-0 at Cars Jeans Stadion last weekend. The last three meetings have been high-scoring affairs with plenty of goals. Take Over 2.5 Goals.

Aalborg TBA
Draw TBA
Odense TBA
(15:00)

Aalborg’s last three friendly matches have been high-scoring affairs with Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score winning easily. Odense’s last five matches on their travels have also seen the Both Teams to Score market win comfortably. Both Teams to Score is definitely on the cards.

Metz TBA
Draw TBA
Kaiserslautern TBA
(15:00)

Metz were edged 1-0 by Monaco thanks to a Benoit Badiashile goal in French Ligue 1 action. Kaiserslautern are unbeaten in their pre-season friendlies but the hosts will prove to have too much quality. Take Metz for the win.

Lazio 1/4
Draw 5/1
Vicenza Virtus 15/2
(16:00)

Lazio finished off their Italian Serie A campaign strongly with three wins on the bounce before losing to Napoli on the final matchday, however their UEFA Champions League spot was already guaranteed. The White and Reds of Vicenza Virtus will find it difficult when they take on last season’s top-scorer Ciro Immobile. The home is tipped confidently.

Hartberg TBA
Draw TBA
Hellas Verona TBA
(18:00)

Hartberg were impressive after returning from lockdown finishing in the top half of the Austrian Bundesliga after a slow start to the season. Hellas Verona struggled with just one win in their last nine matches and finished mid-table in the Serie A standings. The visitors aren’t the form team but have more quality with the likes of Fabio Borini in their ranks. Back the away win.

Tenerife 19/20
Draw 24/10
Las Palmas 26/10
(18:00)

Tenerife enjoyed brilliant form on home soil at the Estadio de Gran Canaria, tasting defeat just once in nine matches. Las Palmas have been equally brilliant at home but have found it difficult on the road, winning just once in nine outings. Back the hosts on the Win/Draw Double Chance.

VVV Venlo TBA
Draw TBA
Borussia Monchengladbach TBA
(19:00)

VVV Venlo proved their worth by stretching a seven-game unbeaten streak that helped secure their Eredivisie status. Borussia Monchengladbach are preparing for UEFA Champions League football after gaining entry following a fourth-placed finish edging Bayer Leverkusen by two points. The away win is tipped confidently.

Granada TBA
Draw TBA
Cadiz TBA
(19:30)

Granada were fortunate to pick up a place in the Europa League. After Getafe and Valencia’s respective seasons fell apart, the hosts won three of their last four games and booked their tickets to European football. Cadiz enjoyed a fantastic 2019/20 campaign but lost momentum at the final hurdle losing three games on the bounce. The home win is a great bet.

Al Ahly 3/10
Draw 36/10
Wadi Degla 19/2
(20:00)

Al Ahly are unbeaten in 16 league matches at the Cairo International Stadium winning 15 times. Wadi Degla are unbeaten in six games with three wins and three draws. The visitors are expected to lose their fifth consecutive match against the champions of Egypt.
