Ticket of the Day (Friday, 15.03.2024)

This weekend is followed by a break in the championship due to international “windows”. Therefore, it’s important to take advantage of the coming days. The odds were valid at the time of writing.

Empoli – Bologna – 2 @ 2.11 in 22Bet

Bologna failed to at least remain unbeaten in their match against the Serie A leader Inter at their home ground, ending a streak of six consecutive victories. This match was crucial for them as it’s clear that their ultimate goal, nicknamed “The Greyhounds”, is to qualify for the Champions League. After 28 rounds, they are still in the position they aim to be in the end, fourth, but Roma has closed in to three points behind, and Atalanta, Napoli, and Fiorentina are also in the mix. The excitement at Renato Dall’Ara is immense, as Bologna hasn’t been champions for exactly 60 years, but now even a 4th place would be akin to winning the Scudetto of the past.

Empoli awaits a formidable opponent after two minimal losses, from Cagliari at home and Milan away. They are still above the relegation line but now only with a one-point advantage over Frosinone who has fallen into the relegation zone. Every point for Empoli is golden, and this team is more successful playing away than at their own stadium. They have brought 15 points from away games and only earned 10 at Carlo Castellani. Last autumn it was 3:0 for Bologna, we don’t expect such a convincing triumph this time, but we believe in a “2”. This bet has odds of 2.11 in 22Bet.

Osnabrück – Fortuna – 2 @ 1.92 in 22Bet

The Purple from Osnabrück do not give up on the battle for survival despite being nailed to the bottom of the table. In the last three rounds, they’ve shown more than in the first twenty, defeating two top-table teams, Hannover at home and Hamburg away, but last week they twice lost the lead in Kaiserslautern and ended up empty-handed in a duel with a direct competitor. They are now 10 points away from Kaiserslautern, the first team above the line. Therefore, Osnabrück’s target should be the 16th place, which leads to the relegation playoff, and Hansa, who currently holds it, has a 7-point advantage over the Purples. The problem is that they are playing again with a top-tier team aiming for elite entry. Fortuna is 4th in the Zweite Bundesliga and unbeaten in the last five rounds.

In that interval, they achieved two wins and three draws. It should be noted that the team from Düsseldorf has reached the DFB Cup semifinal where they will play against Bundesliga leader Bayer Leverkusen, and their chances of playing in the final are slim. We suggest a “2”, despite Osnabrück’s excellent form, as Fortuna must win if they want to be in the Bundesliga. In 22Bet, a “2” has odds of 1.92.

Lech – Warta – 1 @ 1.54 in 22Bet

Lech’s poor form must end, and the arrival of their city rival Warta is the right opportunity. Unexpectedly, Lech has been winless in the last four matches, three in Ekstraklasa and one in the Polish Cup. To make things worse, they failed to score in those four games. They played goalless against Śląsk and Górnik and were convincingly defeated by the champions Raków 4:0. Additionally, they lost to Pogoń in the cup after extra time. On the table, they are now four points behind the leading duo consisting of Jagiellonia and Śląsk, which means they can make up for all their mistakes in the remaining ten rounds. Warta lost at home to ŁKS from Łódź on Monday and thus remained in 12th place, now with only 4 points more than the first team below the line. The battle for survival is their fate despite the fact that their failure with ŁKS was their first in the second part of the season. A “1” has odds of 1.54 in 22Bet.

Den Bosch – Willem II – 2&2+ @ 1.82 in 22Bet

The Dutch second league is being played at a fierce pace, with the playoffs approaching, and there is a real drama at the top of the table. The top two teams will directly qualify for the elite, while the next six will have an opportunity in the playoffs. Of course, the playoffs are uncertain, and it is much better to secure promotion in time, and currently, Willem II is closest to doing so. The team from Tilburg is the leader with 5 points more than Roda and Den Haag, and Groningen, De Graafschap, and Dordrecht are very close too. The team from Tilburg lost two consecutive matches, which had not happened since the start of the season. First, they were defeated by Roda in Tilburg, and then they lost in Emmen. They broke this mini losing streak with a victory over Eindhoven in the previous round with 3:0. Visiting Den Bosch is an opportunity for another triumph; the home team plays without any motives but still managed to win in Oss last round with 2:1.

Last autumn, it was 3:1 for Willem II in Tilburg, and we expect something similar to happen in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, a city known for its grass tennis tournament. For a 2&2+ the odds are 1.82 in 22Bet.

The total odds for Friday’s ticket in 22Bet is 11.35.
