Marseille vs Servette
A fascinating confrontation for the international friendlies between these two sides where a France side will play out a Switzerland side which interestingly happens to be their first time meeting. Marseille finished 5th and at the European spot last season and are coming into this match in a fine form. They are unbeaten in the last 4 games winning 3 of them with their most current win being a 2-1 score over Sete.
The visitors Servette were held to a draw by Dynamo Kyiv and are hopeful of getting a nice play against a top Ligue 1 home side. They had finished 3rd in their domestic Switzerland 1 table adrift of 2nd placed Basel and the league leaders Young boys.
Nacional vs Penarol
Nacional will be looking to bounce back from their recent frustrating loss to Club Atletico Torgue in a match that they accepted three goals scoring none. It is a loss that saw an end to their splendid 6 match unbeaten run having had won 4 of the six and 2 producing a draw. This two had met again 10 days ago where Nacional triumphed over their opponents netted two solid goals to nil. They will be hoping the same spell continues today.
It will indeed be a tough match given also the visiting side Club Atletico Penarol are in a very stunning form having recorded only 2 loses in a whooping 21 games played across all competitions. Interestingly one of the loses happens to be recently and coming against their opponents today and therefore they will be up for a revenge mission.
Grotta vs Fjolnir R
This two will battle it out at a point in time they are faced with a lot of similarities. Each side have won twice in the last 8 games played together with 4 ending in a draw. They are coincidentally 3 points and 3 positions away from each other. Both sides did win their most recent match an indication that these two will be seeking a build up on that leaving this encounter a tough one. It is the kind of a match that could possibly go either way.
Botosani vs FCSB
The Romania's Liga 1 kicks off today as the round of 1 features Botosani who will be hosting FCSB side. Both sides are eyeing an excellent start into the new season especially for Botosani who finished in a losing streak. FCSB remain huge favourites to secure win and extend their winning streak against Botosani. They have set a good and enviable record having won all the last 4 head to head matches.
Mathare United vs Bidco United
The round of 6 of Kenya's top league continues as it features a top clash where Mathare United will play host to Bidco United at the Ruaraka Stadium. Mathare United would want to take home advantage to fancy their chances of a return to winning ways after they were recently hammered 4 goals to 2 by Homeboyz at the Nakuru Show Ask Ground.
Having managed only 14 points in 23 matches, the hosts Mathare United are battling at the relegation zone at the 17th spot. They have lost 6 of the previous recent 8 with their only wins coming against AFC Leopards and Vihiga United. Their form recently is not something to look up to at all as losing 11 of 15 across all competitions is disturbing.
On the other side Bidco United are 12th as they are double on points as compared to their opponents today. Bidco United seem to be building on a strategy to their survival this season. Six of the last 11 have all resulted in a 1-1 or 0-0 draw implying that they have vowed not to concede any goals. Only two of those 11 have had more than two goals and therefore today we expect a low goal scoring encounter.
