Monchengladbach v Hannover Betting Tips: Goals few and far between at Borussia Park

Having made a very good start to life in the Bundesliga, newly promoted Hannover will be looking keep their run going when visiting Borussia Park on Saturday afternoon. Manager André Breitenreiter, who made 72 appearances for Hannover as a player, has seen his side go unbeaten in the first six weeks of the campaign, winning three and drawing three along the way. Such results showcase the progress that Die Roten have made under Breitenreiter. Saturday’s hosts had also made a fairly reasonable start to the new campaign, though, things turned very sour indeed last weekend as they were embarrassed 6-1 by league…

Frankfurt v Stuttgart Betting Tips: Good opportunity for hosts to bounce back

After securing a respectable draw against an in-form Augsburg side last Saturday, Hannes Wolf’s next assignment as Stuttgart manager is a trip to face Frankfurt at Commerzbank-Arena; a fixture that could very easily prove to be problematic. The newly promoted club have made a reasonable start to season – seven points from their opening six games is a decent return – but their problems on the road are clear, while Frankfurt are a side who’re tough to beat on their own patch. As things stand after six games in the Bundesliga, Frankfurt also have seven points to their name. On that fact…

QPR v Fulham Betting Tips: Hosts overlooked in the betting

The West London derby hits our TV screens on Friday night as QPR play host to Fulham at Loftus Road. After a rocky start to the new season, the visitors are starting to gather momentum as they aim to move into the coveted top six. However, facing a QPR side who’ve performed respectably in recent weeks won’t be easy. In fact, this match will probably be far less easy for the visiting side than the early betting suggests. QPR may well be without a win in three league matches, but they’ve lost none of those and have been playing reasonably…

Sheffield United v Wolves Betting Tips: Lack of goals on the cards at Bramall Lane

After their thrilling derby win on Sunday, Sheffield United will be riding high ahead of this fixture against a Wolves side who’ve been tipped by many for promotion. Chris Wilder’s men may also have their sights set on promotion after their impressive start. Having seemingly made the transition from League One to the Championship with ease, and it’s fair to say that the Blades , who’re currently in a lofty 4th position, are more than worthy of their place at this level. Wolves have also made a very pleasing start to the campaign as they sit in 2nd place, behind…

Stuttgart v Augsburg Betting Tips: Away side too big in the betting

Having taken a short while to come to the boil this season, Augsburg continued on an upward trajectory on Tuesday night as they defeated last season’s runners-up RB Leipzig 1-0 in front of a home crowd. That’s now three wins on the bounce for Manuel Baum’s men, but they might not be done just yet. Against a Stuttgart side who’ve not created an amazing impression since regaining their top flight status, the visitors will surely fancy their chances of recording a fourth consecutive victory. Stuttgart have by no means been abysmal since returning to the Bundesliga, but they’ve looked just…

Dortmund v Monchengladbach Betting Tips: Visitors can upset the odds

The new season has so far gone swimmingly as far as Borussia Dortmund are concerned; they’re unbeaten under new manager Peter Bosz, winning four of their five matches, scoring an impressive 13 goals and conceding none. Such form is very promising indeed and, at this moment in time, BVB are deserving league leaders. However, with Bayern looking likely to dismantle Wolfsburg in front of a home crowd on Friday night, and this match against a useful opposition coming at a slightly inconvenient time, things could soon change at the top. The hosts have indeed made a fine start to the…

FC Koln v Frankfurt Betting Tips: Goals on the cards at RheinEnergieStadion

Having qualified for the Europa League last season, the expectations on Koln to perform again this time around would’ve been fairly high, but, as of yet, the Rhineland club have flattered too deceive. Four matches in and Peter Stoger are without a win, or even a single point. After what the worse possible start, this match against Frankfurt is already a massive game for the hosts. It could also be construed that Frankfurt have struggled at the start of this season, though, even if they’ve not hit top gear yet, they’ve fared considerably better than their hosts, picking up four…

Hamburg v Dortmund Betting Tips: Bosz’s side to keep banging in the goals

On Wednesday night, Dortmund will be hoping to strengthen their position at the top of Bundesliga. With Bayern already having dropped points, it is critical that Peter Bosz’s side continue picking up three points. Fortunately for the visitors, a match against an out of form Hamburg side represents a good opportunity, even away from home. Having failed to take anything from their Champions League foray to Wembley, Dortmund bounced back in emphatic fashion at the weekend as they hammered a sorry-looking Koln side by five goals to nil. Such a performance was just what the doctor ordered after a disappointing night…

Wolfsburg v Werder Bremen Betting Tips: Visitors too big in the betting

Two of the Bundesliga’s current strugglers face each other on Tuesday night as Werder Bremen travel to face Wolfsburg. With neither of these two starting the season particularly well, this is a big opportunity for both to gain a positive result. The hosts may have won one of their first four matches, but they’ve been largely unimpressive overall, much like last season. Having stayed up by the skin of their teeth last term, it appears as though there’s no quick fix for Die Wölfe, and so a continuation of the current decline could be on the cards before things get…

Angers v Metz Betting Tips: Hosts can outscore struggling visitors

Metz travel to Angers on Sunday, where they will be hoping to turn things around having made a disappointing start to the season, though, improving their form dramatically will mean doing something that they haven’t done since 2010, which is of course taking all three points away from a trip to Stade Raymond Kopa. In contrast, Angers will be hoping to continue their relatively solid start; five matches in and Stéphane Moulin’s men are yet to taste defeat. The hosts have however drawn three matches on the spin and so a win would give them a timely boost. A home match…

Amiens v Marseille Betting Tips: Visitors to falter on the road

Few people, barring a few optimistic Amiens fans, would’ve predicted the recent turnaround in form from Christophe Pélissier’s men, but the newly promoted team are starting to turn a few heads with their assured performances. All things considered, even though they lost each of their opening three matches, Amiens have made a pretty good start to life in Ligue 1. In contrast, despite winning each of their first two matches, Marseille have made a below par start to the season. After failing to make the top four last season, improvement was definitely in order, but, though it is still early days,…

Dijon v St. Etienne Betting Tips: High-scoring game to unfold at Stade Gaston Gérard

Dijon’s upturn in fortunes didn’t last very long at all; after beating Montpellier in their last home match, a win that was a first of the season for Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men, they got straight back on the losing on the losing trail away to Caen last time out. Yet again, Dijon showed themselves to be useful in the final third, but an inability to keep teams at bay is still very much there for all to see. Having made a pleasing start to the season, a start which saw them win each of their first three matches, St Etienne have also…

Montpellier v Nantes Betting Tips: Things to come together for hosts

Ligue 1 returns this weekend and, of the five games taking place on Saturday, it is the fixture between Montpellier and Nantes at Stade de la Mosson which catches the eye. Four matches have now gone and it’s probably safe to say that neither have set the world alight just yet; however, one has created a far better impression than the other. Montpellier may have won just one of their opening four matches in Ligue 1, but that’s not to say that they haven’t performed well. Michel Der Zakarian’s men, as they did last season, have begun the season playing an entertaining…

Wolfsburg v Hannover Betting Tips: Visitors not to be written off at Volkswagen Arena

Since regaining their Bundesliga status, it’s been a pleasing couple of weeks for Hannover. Two games in and André Breitenreiter’s side still have their 100% record intact, while they’re also yet to concede a goal. Quite frankly, things couldn’t have gone much better for Die Roten on their return to the big time and they will very much be looking to keep things going strong here. On the face of it, Wolfsburg have also made an OK start to proceedings as they’ve taken three points from their opening two fixtures. There was no real shame in losing to the fast-starting Dortmund on…

Monchengladbach v Eintracht Frankfurt Betting Tips: Visitors too big in the betting

Following what was ultimately a poor season last term, Gladbach will be hoping that, with Dieter Hecking having now had several months to work with the squad, they can kick forward this time around and return to the top four. The start made, with four points from their opening two matches, is by no means poor, although, even though it’s still early days, some visible deficiencies remain. On paper, Frankfurt haven’t made the best start to the new campaign, though their performances have actually been better than the bare results suggest. A 0-0 draw, in which they commanded proceedings, away…

Augsburg v FC Koln Betting Tips: Lack of goals unlikely at Augsburg Arena

The Bundesliga season may only be two weeks old, but it’s already looking as though FC Koln could struggle massively in their attempts to match last seasons’ 5th place finish. Peter Stöger’s men have made a poor start to the campaign, losing both of their openings matches. It’s still early days, but the loss of 25 goal striker Anthony Modeste, who left for pastures new in the summer, is already having negative effects, while the Rhineland side are also looking particularly shaky at the back. Augsburg have also made a poor start to the season, at least this is what the table…

Finland v Iceland Betting Tips: Visitors can secure a pleasing result in Tampere

Iceland will be looking to continue their meteoric rise on Saturday night as they bid to edge closer to World Cup qualification for the first time ever. Heimir Hallgrímsson’s men have enjoyed a steady campaign so far and, as things stand, are on course to make it through. However, even though they’re level on points with group leaders Croatia, Group I is very tight with four teams all still in with a shout and so continuing the winning trend is vitally important. Fortunately for the visitors, Finland have had a torrid time of it in this group and are now unable…

Wales v Austria Betting Tips: Goals likely as this pair chase qualification

With the World Cup looming, it is around this time where the race for qualification really hots up. As thins stand, with six matches gone, if either of Austria or Wales have serious ambitions of featuring in Russia next summer then they need to get their skates on. With four matches to play, the pair are locked together on eight points and sit four points behind 2nd place Ireland. With this in mind, it’s fair to say that this really is a must win game for both. With the way the group is currently set up, keeping in mind the…

Albania v Liechtenstein Betting Tips: Hosts to put minnows to the sword

As things currently stand in Group G, Albania aren’t in the most favourable position; they trail Italy, who’re currently in 2nd spot, by seven points and, with time running out, their World Cup dreams are fading rapidly. However, they have been presented with an excellent chance to gain a valuable three points here. Liechtenstein have very much been the whipping boy of this group and so the Albanians ought to win this match and win well. Qualification is obviously looking unlikely but, what with this being something of a banker for the hosts and with Italy playing Spain at the…

Czech Republic v Germany Betting Tips: Hosts can test Germans defensively

Following a triumphant summer in Russia, one which saw them lift the Confederations Cup, something that Joachim Löw will be hoping was a dress-rehearsal for next summers’ World Cup, Germany are back in action on Friday night as they bid to cement their place in Russia for the second summer running. Depending on what happens over the next few days, Löw’s men could be mathematically confirmed as Group C winners with two games to spare. In order to do that, the Germans must start with a win against Czech Republic in Prague on Friday night. Friday’s hosts come into this match…

Greece v Estonia Betting Tips: Both teams can profit going forward in Piraeus

One of Group H’s best defensive units takes on one of it’s worst on Thursday evening as an optimistic Greece play host to a struggling Estonia side at Karaiskakis Stadium. The Greeks currently sit in 2nd position in this group and are looking good for a place in the play-offs. Having said that, the job is nowhere near complete just yet and so Michael Skibbe’s men will need to continue picking up positive results. In contrast, the qualification campaign has been something of a washout as far as Estonia are concerned; Martin Reim’s side sit down in 5th place having accumulated just…

France v Netherlands Betting Tips: Stade de France set for goals on Thursday night

France and Holland meet each other in World Cup Qualifying for the second time on Thursday night having previously faced off in Amsterdam back in October. When the teams previously met in that reverse fixture, it was the French who came out on top thanks to a fine strike from midfielder Paul Pogba. Dick Advocaat’s men will be looking to return the favour and secure victory on foreign soil in this match. As things currently stand in Group A, neither France nor Netherlands are leading the way. Sweden currently top the group on 13 points with France behind on goal…

Six matches into qualifying and there is still plenty of work for both of these two teams to do if they have their sights set on reaching the World Cup proper in around 12 months time. Of the two, it is the Bosnians who, right now, are looking more likely to make it as they sit in 3rd, just a single point behind 2nd place Greece. Cyprus are currently four points behind Thursday’s opponents, but all is not lost. A win in this fixture would put the Cypriots firmly back in the hunt and so there’s everything to play for…

Angers v Lille Betting Tips: Great opportunity for Stéphane Moulin’s side

On Sunday afternoon, one of the standout bets in Ligue 1 looks to be Angers to beat an injury-plagued Lille in front of a home crowd. The hosts, despite a high turnover of personnel during the summer, have made a pleasing start to the new campaign, especially from an attacking point of view, and really do appear to have been presented with an excellent opportunity to maintain their unbeaten run and, more importantly, earn their second victory of the campaign. There was plenty of hype surrounding Marco Bielsa’s appointment at Lille a few months ago and the Argentine manager, who…

Guingamp v Strasbourg Betting Tips: Hosts to re-find their form on home soil

Having been slapped with two tough fixtures in a row, Guingamp can breathe a sigh of relief ahead of this match against newly promoted Strasbourg. The hosts may be coming off the back of two defeats in a row against PSG and Nice respectively, but this is a much more realistic task and is a game they really ought to be winning if the top half is where they wish to reside come May. Since earning promotion from Ligue 2 last season, Strasbourg have made a rather up and down start to the new campaign; they’ve won one, drawn one…

Dijon v Montpellier Betting Tips: Stade Gaston Gérard to witness goals

Having started the season rather poorly, Dijon’s form just about improved last weekend as they snatched a draw from the hands of defeat away at Rennes, thanks to a 92nd minute goal from Julio Tavares. On balance, the point was deserved, and The Mustards will now be hoping to kick-on having prevented themselves from suffering three defeats on the bounce. Montpellier also shared the spoils last weekend as they were unable to find a winner against newly promoted Strasbourg. Despite dominating proceedings on home soil, the hosts found themselves a goal down and required a 72nd minute equaliser from Daniel Congré…

Toulouse v Rennes Betting Tips: Both teams can profit at Stadium Municipal

Following what will undoubtedly have been a disappointing draw at home last time out – conceded an equaliser inside stoppage time – Rennes travel to take on a Toulouse side who recently felt the full wrath of the new-look PSG on Saturday night. Both teams will be hoping to bounce back from what were ultimately poor results last time out. With the sale of forward Martin Braithwaite, there will have been doubts over Toulouse’s ability to perform in the final third this season; however, Le Téfécé, having scored five goals in three matches, have started the season well in that…
