This Thursday, there is plenty of material for compiling a betting slip. Championship and cup matches are being played in many countries, and the odds from the betting slip were valid at the time it was written.
Everton – Newcastle – under 2.5 @ 1.95 at Mozzartbet
The Magpies are one team when playing at their St. James’ Park, and quite another when they play away. In the Premier League, they have played six away games and won only once. However, even with that single victory, they have a positive goal difference in away matches, having beaten Sheffield 8:0. At their home ground, they have defeated Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, City in the EFL Cup, and PSG in the Champions League. To join the leaders, they need to win away as well, making the match at Goodison an excellent opportunity for that. Everton has been penalized with a deduction of 10 points and is currently in the relegation zone. They showed they don’t plan to stay there long with their away win in Nottingham last weekend, beating Forest 1:0. The Toffees have only won once at their Goodison Park, scoring 5 goals in 7 matches. This too will be a tough match with few goals.
Brest – Strasbourg – fr 1 @ 1.85 at Mozzartbet
In the postponed match of the 12th round of the French Ligue 1, Brest hosts the Strasbourg team. In Brest, they can be satisfied with how the season is going; they are in a high 7th place, and a win against Strasbourg would lift them to the 5th position. They currently have two consecutive wins, which came after three straight losses and a series of five matches without a triumph. They defeated Montpellier away and Clermont at home, scoring three goals in each match. Against Strasbourg, they have a good opportunity to secure their third win, especially since the visitors haven’t known success and haven’t won three points since September 24th. Strasbourg has been without a win for seven rounds, during which they have been defeated four times and drawn three times. They have sunk to 15th place in the table, and if they continue this way, they will quickly slip into the relegation zone. Brest plays well in front of their fans and has only lost to Paris Saint-Germain, and that too in the final stages of the match.
Beveren – St. Gilloise – 2&ov 1.5 @ 1.48 at Mozzartbet
Beveren is a second division team, and it’s unlikely that we’ll see them in the elite next season. After 14 rounds, they are only in 9th place, and in the Jupiler League, only the top two teams go directly. Of course, there’s also the playoff, but it’s highly uncertain. By reaching the round of 16 in the cup, Beveren has achieved a good result, and it’s a pity that the draw wasn’t more favorable and didn’t pair them with an easier opponent than the currently best Belgian team. Saint-Gilloise, or Royal Union, as the Brussels team is also known, is once again the leader of the regular part of the championship, as in the previous two seasons. However, despite dominating during the first part of the championship, this team has ended up without the title in the end. First, they were overtaken by Club Brugge, and last season by Antwerp. They haven’t managed to qualify for the Champions League, but they are regular participants in the Europa League. In a group with Liverpool, Toulouse, and LASK, they are currently third, but everything can change in the last round, for better or worse for them. We expect a victory over Beveren and at least two goals in the home team’s net.
Arka Gdynia – Lech Poznan – under 2.5 @ 2.03 at Mozzartbet
The Polish Cup has reached the round of 16, and one of the more interesting pairings is between the home team Arka and Lech from Poznań. The team from Gdynia has already played in the final of this competition, which was in 2018 when they were defeated by Legia in the final match. However, they took their revenge against the Warsaw giants in the Super Cup match at the start of the next season, which is the biggest trophy in Arka’s history. They soon fell out of the Ekstraklasa and are now trying to return to the big stage after a few years. They are doing well and are currently the leaders of Division 1, three points ahead of their closest pursuer. Lech is the favorite in this match, being one of the best teams in Poland and currently holding the third place after 17 rounds in the Ekstraklasa. Caution is advised for this match, as both teams are in excellent form, and it could be decided by just one goal, especially since Lech hardly concedes goals away, and Arka last conceded more than one goal at the end of August.
