9 Matches to Bank on today

1. Sevilla v Granada

Both sides will want a result from this match and with eight games remaining the pressure increases. Sevilla are out of Europe and are winless in their last four but I think Lopetegui’s team will bounce back with a win. They need points to stay in the top 4 as their fellow citizens and big rivals Betis are lagging jut 4 pts behind. Granada are 3 pts above the drop zone and will also want a result. Still news is they have serious problems with injured players which makes their task even harder. Sevilla defeated Granada 2-1 and 2-0 in the last two encounters at the Estadio Ramón Sanchez Pizjuan.

2. Newcastle v Wolverhampton

Until their 5-1 defeat at Spurs, Newcastle had not conceded more than 1 goal in any of their previous 11 games (conceding only 8 in the 11 games). So, hopefully their defence can return to the form of their previous games on Friday when they face a Wolves side who have scored only 33 goals in their 31 games this season. Newcastle may have lost their last 3 games. But, with all 3 losses coming away from home they could get back to winning ways as they return to home soil for this game and should be worth backing to extend their current unbeaten home run of 5 games (W3 D2 L0) with another home win.

3. Botev Vratsa v Slavia Sofia

Vratsa hold six games losing streak in Premier League, but they desperately need of points sitting in the relegation zone. On the other side Slavia are big favourite to win this match, but they have allowed one or more goals in eight of the last nine Premier League games on the road.

4. Adelaide United v Macarthur FC

The tips has the home team as favourites. I think it may be a different outcome because the home team have not won in the last 3 games whereas MacArthur arrive in better form and did beat today's opponent the last time they met. MacArthur are the team on an upwards curve here and in recent games. I again think they have shown enough to be given a good chance to win this game.

5. SJK v HJK Helsinki

Out of four games, SJK has only lost one. HJK has three wins and one tie. Aside from their most recent match, SJK defeated HJK 2-1. SJK has a good chance of winning.

6. VfB Stuttgart v Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund have plenty of firepower at their will with Donny Malen and Haaland to name just two. Stuttgart should offer a little fight and should score considering how attacking Dortmund play.

7. ADO Den Haag v Helmond Sport

ADO Den Haag have won around 67% of their 16 home games. Helmond Sport have won only almost 19% of their 16 away gamesw have failed to score in about 44% of their 16 away games and have scored only 0.88 goals per away game. ADO Den Haag will win this game with clean sheets.

8. FC Emmen v AZ

FC Emmen have won 10 of their 16 home games and conceded only 0.95 goals per home game. AZ Reserves have won 9 of their 16 away games, have failed to score in 7 of their 16 away games and have scored only 1.40 goals per away game. FC Emmen will win this game as soon as in the first half.

9. Lokomotiv Plovdiv v CSKA Sofia

Lokomotiv Plovdiv have scored 1.33 goals per home game and conceded 1.25 goals per home game. CSKA Sofia have scored 1.5 goals per away game and conceded 1.25 goals per away game. Lokomotiv Plovdiv is expected to score 1.2 goals in this game and CSKA Sofia is expected to score 1.8 goals.
