  5. Wolves vs Manchester United Monday Night Football returns for this season this week and our treat is the highly-anticipated clash between a vibrant Wolves side and an attacking Manchester United team in an 8pm kick-off from Molineux. Recent meetings have seen the Midlands club have an advantage over their opponents but with the Red Devils starting so well this season is that about to change? Wolves have already been fighting on two fronts this season. Nuno Santo has fielded strong sides in their Europa League run that has taken them to the Play-Off Round. An opening day 0-0 draw with Leicester might have been another story had VAR not ruled out Leander Dendoncker's goal. The impressive aspect of Wolves' play so far this season has been their defensive solidarity. Including pre-season it's now 6 clean sheets from 7 matches for Wanderers. Manchester United appear to have put last season's torrid end behind them. A productive pre-season campaign was backed up by United running riot against Chelsea in a 4-0 win at Old Trafford in their opening league game. It might have been a different outcome had Tammy Abraham scored his crucial chance but the Premier League is ruthless like that. It'll be interesting to see how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tries to crack this resilient Wolves defence. United have now failed to win their past three games against Wolves. Santo's side built a reputation last season for having an awesome record against the better sides in the league. It was 16 points gained from their matches with the top six teams last season. The Red Devils have been class on the road under Solskjaer for the majority including scoring in 17 of their 19 away matches last season. I'm still not sure United have solved all their problems. I'm tempted to back them to win here but I just think Wolves will make it hard for them and a draw could offer the best value. Draw @ 3.30 with BetVictor BTTS @ 1.95 with RedZone
  6. Reading vs Cardiff The Championship has a solitary game on Sunday when Reading and Cardiff go toe-to-toe in a midday kick-off at the Madejski Stadium. This game was re-arranged due to Wales playing England at the Millennium Stadium on the Saturday. Neither of these two teams have had the start to the season they had hoped for so this is a chance to take a move in the right direction. Reading were temporarily looking like they could be in danger of relegation to League One last season. Jose Gomes replaced Paul Clement to stop the rot but this season hasn't exactly started well. Two defeats against Sheffield Wednesday at home and Hull City away mean that the Royals are the only side in the Championship that are yet to pick up a single point. It also means they are currently rooted to the bottom of the table. Cardiff fans were high on expectation as the season drew closer but a disappointing transfer deadline day and an opening day defeat to Wigan has tempered the mood. The late victory over Luton at home has restored some faith but the issue remains that this current side is lacking creativity in the starting eleven and everything feels a little bit laboured right now. I'm a bit nervous about this game tomorrow. Something isn't quite clicking with the Bluebirds right now. I still have complete support for Neil Warnock but the amount of changes from last season in terms of mentality and personnel in the middle of the park is going to take time to bed in. The Cardiff fan in me wants to back us to win but I really don't have the confidence in us right now. It'll come but it's early days. As a tipster, I'm trying to take a step back and I'm going to have to back us to sneak a win. Simply because Reading could well be in trouble this season.

  7. Fenerbahce vs Gazisehir Gaziantep FK Our first season fully covering the Turkish Super Lig is set to be a really exciting one so I thought we'd start by previewing one of the big guns for the first game. It's Fenerbahce versus Gazisehir Gaziantep FK in a 6pm BST kick-off at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium in Istanbul. Can the home team start on a winning note against a side that could well be facing a relegation battle this season? Fenerbahce were well off the title pace last season having finished in 6th place and outside the European qualification places. It's simply not good enough for a club this size and manager Ersun Yanal will be looking for an improved finish this season. The club has worked hard to bring in new faces with fans of the Premier League noticing one familiar addition in the shape of former Huddersfield centre back Matthias Jorgensen. The capture of veteran Emre Belozoglu is also a name most British punters will know. The loss of Elif Elmas to Napoli is a big blow but the money from that transfer can hopefully be re-invested. Gazisehir Gaziantep FK are not only one of the trickiest football club names I've ever had to type in a preview but they also come into this season as one of the biggest outsiders to enter a Super Lig season. Marius Sumudica's men earned promotion through the play-offs after finishing 5th in the second tier of Turkish football. They are already being written so they have nothing to lose. Former Werder Bremen striker Max Kruse is another signing by Fenerbahce and he's delivered the goods in pre-season. I think he could be crucial in this game to unlocking a sturdy Gazisehir Gaziantep FK back-line. The bookies think the home side are firm favourites and I totally understand why. I wouldn't be surprised if they come away from this game with a 2-3 goal margin of victory. Fenerbahce -1 @ 2.25 with Boylesports Fenerbahce HT/FT @ 2.15 with Sportingbet @Magic0024, @betcatalog, @rainmaker35, @black_baar, and @Tahador, what bets are tempting you all this weekend?
  8. Sporting CP vs Braga The Primeira Liga has a big game coming at us this weekend when Sporting CP take on Braga in a 9pm BST kick-off this Sunday in an early litmus test for both teams to see how well prepared they are for the coming season against their big rivals. The game is scheduled to be played at the Estadio Jose Alvalade so the home team will be looking to strike an early blow on the title hopes of the visitors. Sporting CP haven't had the best of starts to their new league campaign. It was a summer of uncertainty at the club with star man Bruno Fernandes looking destined to leave before all interest waned and a move failed to materialise. Unfortunately, Marcel Keizer's side are lacking on the results front. A 1-1 draw against Maritimo was disappointing and they now face a tough home encounter against a tricky Braga side. Braga comfortably won their opening match of the season against Moreirense with a 3-1 score-line. It's a cracking start for Ricardo Sa Pinto's team. It's been a busy summer for the squad with the likes of Pedro Neto, Mamadou Loum, and Dyego Sousa leaving the club but a number of additions including Galeno, Andre Horta, and Vitor Tormena coming in. It appears that those changes haven't unsettled things. The issue for Braga here is that they have a poor recent record against the top three sides of Benfica, Porto, and Sporting CP having lost 5 of the 6 matches with those sides last season. It is a turbulent period for Sporting CP though and they've failed to keep a clean sheet for their last 11 competitive matches now. Combine that with Braga scoring 8 goals in their last 6 visits to this stadium and Braga failing to keep a clean sheet away to the top eight sides last season then we could have a high-scoring game.

  9. Royal Antwerp vs St Truiden The Belgian First Division A has had a turbulent start so far with a lot of results not quite going according to expectation. I am previewing this match between Royal Antwerp and St Truiden that kicks off at 5pm BST on Sunday at the Bosuilstadion in Antwerp in the hope that the end result goes in line with what the bookies are anticipating and what I think is going to happen. Royal Antwerp are enjoying a productive start to their campaign so far. Laszlo Boloni has seen his team win 2 of their first 3 league games to move up to 4th in the table. The club that finished runners up in the 1992/93 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup are looking to recapture the glory days and they've started with the right form. A win here could see them really start setting themselves apart from the rest of the chasing pack at this early stage. The goals from Dieumerci Mbokani and Lior Refaelov have been key. St Truiden haven't had the best of starts despite still being placed higher than Anderlecht. Marc Brys has watched his team win 1 and lose 2 of their 3 league matches so far. 8 goals conceded in those 3 matches has shown that the defensive structure needs tightening up. The club finished 7th last season and at the moment any hope of matching or bettering that finish this season is looking like the stuff of dreams. These two sides have experienced contrasting fortunes so far in their early days of this season. Royal Antwerp haven't been invincible up to now but they're certainly showing themselves to be a dangerous attacking force. I think that potent attack against this fragile St Truiden defence could see the goals fly in. I'd recommend backing Royal Antwerp to win this game and win it with relative ease.

  10. Feyenoord vs Utrecht Another weekend of action is heading our way in the Eredivisie and my focus turns to one side that hasn't really got their season properly started yet. Feyenoord are long considered one of the giants of Dutch football but they come into this 3:45pm BST kick-off on Sunday against Utrecht having only managed to get two draws from their first two league games of the season. Not a great start for a team with title aspirations. Feyenoord are one of the big three in Dutch football alongside Ajax and PSV. You always expect to see them up there challenging. New manager Jaap Stam continues to learn more about his side but a 2-2 draw at home to Sparta followed by a 1-1 draw with Heerenveen has left their fan base frustrated and left the club sitting in a lowly 12th place already well off the title pace. Utrecht could not have wished for a better start to their season. John van den Brom's men have picked up two wins from their first two games and what victories they have been. The first was a 4-2 win over ADO Den Haag away and the second was a 3-1 win at home to PEC Zwolle. Arguably not the strongest of opposition but you can't do better than beat what's in front of you. Form is playing a big role in my thinking here. Feyenoord have only won 1 of their last 6 matches across all competitions compared to Utrecht that have only lost 1 of their last 6 matches. The prospect of a draw or even a Utrecht upset here is very appealing. I think if Feyenoord still had van Bronckhorst in charge then it might be different but Stam is still feeling his way into the managerial hot seat. I think we could see Utrecht potentially take something here.

  11. Eintracht Frankfurt vs Hoffenheim The opening weekend of the Bundesliga season has already thrown up a surprise result with reigning champions Bayern Munich being held to a 2-2 draw against Hertha Berlin. That's your accumulator buster for this week. We must now look at the betting for one of Sunday's games when Eintracht Frankfurt play Hoffenheim in a 2:30pm BST kick-off at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt. Eintracht Frankfurt begin this campaign without their star strikers Luka Jovic and Sebastian Haller. The duo departed the club for Real Madrid and West Ham respectively in the summer and head coach Adi Hutter has gone for Dejan Joveljic as the replacement to help Ante Rebic try and get the goals this season. Is it too much of a gamble though? Frankfurt will be keen to improve on their Europa League qualification finish last season and go one step further to qualify for the Champions League. Hoffenheim narrowly missed out on the European qualification places last season. Alfred Schreuder is the new man in charge at the club after the departure of former gaffer Julian Nagelsmann to RB Leipzig in the summer. There have been a lot of departures at the club in the summer with Joelinton, Nico Schulz, Kerem Demirbay, Reiss Nelson, and Nadiem Amiri all absentees that were on the playing squad last season. Furthermore, last season's top scorer Andrej Kramaric has only just returned from injury so is unlikely to be 100% fit. I'm expecting an unpredictable but thrilling game here. Hutter teams always take the game to their opponents and last season Eintracht Frankfurt's matches saw over 2.5 goals scored in 70% of their games. Last season, both teams scored in 90% of Hoffenheim's away matches. I'm expecting goals to be scored but I think we could see a narrow home win in this game.

  12. St Etienne vs Brest Ligue 1 offers an interesting match-up this weekend when St Etienne host newly promoted Brest in a 2pm BST kick-off on Sunday at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. These two clubs might well have contrasting aspirations for this season but they'll both be looking to take all three points from this game. Can the top flight new boys cause a shock or will the favourites come through? St Etienne won their opening weekend match away to Dijon with a 2-1 win. Two goals in the opening 11 minutes put Ghislain Printant's men in a dominant position. An attempted comeback from their opponents never prevailed. Printant's reign has started with a win and he'll be hoping his side can build on that here to maintain a 100% record. The club built their success last season on an impressive home record. Only two teams in the league boasted a better record on their own turf. Brest started their first season back in Ligue 1 after promotion from Ligue 2 with a 1-1 draw at home to Toulouse. The departure of promotion-achieving manager Jean-Marc Furlan to Ligue 2 side Auxerre on the day promotion was confirmed has left a sour taste in the mouth but it is hoped his replacement, former Dijon gaffer Olivier Dall'Oglio, can keep them up this season. It's always a tricky one to judge these newly promoted sides in the early days of the new season. Brest were solid enough against Toulouse but this is on the road. Even during their promotion season, Brest weren't perfect on their travels. I'm anticipating them to struggle here. St Etienne are starting life under a new manager after their joint best league finish ever last season but I feel they're better set-up to get the win here. I'm expecting a solid home victory.
