The international break has passed, and there are no more interruptions until the end of the autumn part of the season in most leagues. The proposed odds for this Friday were valid at the time of the ticket compilation.
Jagiellonia – Plast Gliwice – gg&ov 2.5 @ 2.45 at Mozzartbet
The Polish championship may not be among the highest quality in Europe, but it certainly has its charms. These are most evident in the equality of the teams, so the fight for the title is always interesting, and it happens that champions are teams that could not have been anticipated. This was the case with Rakow last season and some other teams before. This season, Jagiellonia is playing excellently, sitting in second place with three points less than the leader, Śląsk. However, in the battle for the top, there are as many as six teams, ending with the famous Legia, which is 6th with nine points less but also a game less than the leader. Jagiellonia has played nine home games this autumn and won all 9. Thanks to their home performance, they are so high in the table. Now they host Piast, a team from the lower part of the table, but a team that has the quality for a much better position. The team from Gliwice has only suffered two defeats in 15 rounds, but has also won only twice. The reason for their poor placement is the draws, of which they have as many as 11. Piast has lost only once away, so it won’t be easy for Jagiellonia either. Goals should be expected on both sides.
Hamburger – Braunschweig – 1&ov 2.5 @ 1.55 at Mozzartbet
After a great start to the season, Hamburger SV has faltered, and only thanks to the slip-ups of other top teams, they find themselves in an excellent second place. Ahead of them is only their city rival St. Pauli, so for Hamburger SV fans, it would be a disaster if their biggest rival enters the elite and they remain in the second division for the sixth consecutive year. The season is not even halfway through, and for Hamburger SV, the most important thing is to be among the top two teams, considering that last year they played in the playoffs and saw how difficult it is to knock a team out of the Bundesliga. Before the break, they suffered a heavy defeat in the regional derby against Holstein Kiel with a score of 4:2, and we believe that Eintracht Braunschweig is the right opponent for them to get back on the winning track. The team from Braunschweig is in 17th place, having collected only 8 points so far, and only Osnabrück is worse than them. It will be difficult for Eintracht to avoid relegation if they continue to play like this in the spring. They are disastrous in away games, with six defeats in six matches, and we don’t give them much chance in Germany’s largest port city. Along with a home win, we also add goals, and there should be at least three.
Rotherham – Leeds – gg&ov 2.5 @ 2.15 at Mozzartbet
It took the Yorkshire team quite some time to get used to playing in the Championship again, where they spent two decades before returning to the elite three years ago. They started quite shakily and allowed Leicester and Ipswich to pull away. Now they have caught up somewhat, trailing the leading duo by eight points, a gap that can be bridged in such a league. The prerequisite is to continue with good performances; before the break, they had six wins in the previous seven rounds, with their only loss occurring in Stoke a month ago. The away game at Rotherham is one of those that must be won, but the host also has its calculations and motivation. Rotherham is in the relegation zone, just below the line, and are four points behind Huddersfield, the first team above the line. The host was not in good momentum before the league suspension and hasn’t been since the start of the season. In their last 11 matches, they have only one win, and in the last four games, they have taken just one point. Both teams will play for the win, with the visitors being closer to it, but we wouldn’t be surprised by a different final outcome. Therefore, we suggest betting on goals, expecting them from both sides.
