One of the last weekends with a great offer before New Year’s is upon us. The European cups are finished, at least until spring, and now clubs are turning their attention to domestic competitions. The odds were valid at the time of ticket compilation.
Genoa – Juventus – 2 @ 1.85 at Mozzart
We must admit that Juventus is playing above expectations, and if not, they are certainly achieving better results than anyone had hoped for. Currently, they are second in Serie A, trailing only two points behind the leading Inter, and it seems they have maximally utilized the fact that they are not playing in Europe, focusing entirely on domestic commitments. The Old Lady has not lost since September 23rd, with their visit to Sassuolo being their only defeat so far this season. Since that match, they have played ten rounds, securing 8 wins and only two draws, mostly with narrow victories by a single goal. In the last round, they defeated last year’s champions Napoli in Turin, with the decisive goal coming from defender Gatti, who also scored the crucial goal against Monza.
Genoa, back in the elite, is out of the relegation zone after 15 rounds but only three points above it. The Griffins have only gained one point in the last three rounds and were also knocked out of the Italian Cup. The majority of Genoa’s points have been won at home, with only Milan and Fiorentina taking three points from the famous port. We believe Juventus will be the third team to celebrate in Genoa, with odds of 1.85 for a win at Mozzart.
M’gladbach – Werder – T1 over 1.5 @ 1.75 at Mozzart
If nothing else, the Foals have stabilized their form at their Borussia Park, winning their last five matches, three in the Bundesliga and two in the DFB Cup. Advancing to the quarterfinals of the cup could be a chance for a triumph in that competition, considering only three Bundesliga teams remain in contention. As for the league, M’gladbach is in the middle of the table, currently in 10th place with a significant gap from the teams in the European competition zone. This is a rejuvenated Borussia team, and no one expected spectacular results. What they are known for is their efficiency, averaging two goals per match, despite being far from the top. In the first match of the 15th round in Mönchengladbach, Werder Bremen is visiting.
The team from Bremen ended a four-match winless streak with a victory over Wolfsburg at their Weser Stadium, making them much more relaxed for this visit. Werder is two places below M’gladbach with two points less. In case of a win, they would overtake their host, but Borussia seems closer to success, and it’s even more likely that they will score two goals. The odds for T1 over 1.5 at Mozzartbet Nigeria are 1.75.
Monaco – Lyon – 1&ov 1.5 @ 1.85 at Mozzart
Lyon won their last match against Toulouse with a convincing 3:0, marking only their second victory in the current Ligue 1 season. This hasn’t helped the Lions move from the bottom of the table, causing anxiety among fans who fear the famous club might struggle to avoid relegation this season. We believe Lyon will pull through, if not immediately, then surely by spring. Signs of better performances include two wins in the last five rounds, but also three consecutive losses. Monaco is at the top, unlikely to fight for the title, but aiming, once again, for a Champions League spot. They failed to achieve this in the last two seasons, so this has become a mandatory goal for coach Adi Hütter, the former Eintracht strategist.
The Princes are currently in the desired third place, but the battle for the two spots, aside from the first reserved for PSG, leading to the elite competition will be fought with Nice and Lille, as well as Brest, Marseille, Lens, and Reims. Monaco has won their last four home games at Stade Louis II, scoring at least two goals in each. We believe in their triumph with at least two goals scored. The odds for 1&ov 1.5 at Mozzart Nigeria are 1.85.
Westerlo – Eupen – T1 over 1.5 @ 1.67 at Mozzart
The home team is far from the form that characterized them last season when they were close to qualifying for the playoffs, among the top four teams in the Belgian Jupiler League. This season, Westerlo has been much worse, with a catastrophic start and a series of defeats. They have improved recently, with two wins, a draw, and two losses in the last five rounds, moving up from the bottom of the table but still in the relegation zone. Currently, Westerlo is in 14th place with 14 points, and their first goal is to move towards the middle of the table. The 12th place brings participation in the playoffs for a spot in the Conference League, while from this season, the top six teams will again compete for the title. In the last round, Westerlo celebrated a victory in their visit to Kortrijk, thus passing the “lantern” to that team.
This is the 18th round of the championship, marking the start of the second part of the regular season, meaning the rivals from this round met at the start, i.e., in the 1st round. Then, Eupen hosted Westerlo, and the match ended with a 2:2 score. Eupen has not been playing well lately, without a win in five rounds and also knocked out of the cup. They have fallen into the relegation zone, specifically among the last four placed teams, and have only one more point than Westerlo. Better form is the home team’s advantage, but also their solid efficiency. The odds for T1 over 1.5 at Mozzart are 1.67.
The total odds on the ticket for Friday at Mozzartbet bookmakers is 10.00.
