I will do a review/preview video at DRT Facebook. I usually take Friday off from Telegram (Should have taken yesterday off with all of those tricky matches! See video!). I might see you on Telegram if I am about at kick-off times.
English Premier League
20:00 - Arsenal v Everton - 1.91 Arsenal
Arsenal - 9th
- Only 2 losses in 9 came v Liverpool and Man City.
- Win, Loss, Win, Loss, Draw at home recently.
- Conceded in their last 5 at home.
- 8 0-0's at halftime at home, only 2 at fulltime.
- 2-1 loss last head to head.
- Have beaten 4th, 5th, 7th and 10th at home.
Everton - 8th
- 2 losses and 3 draws last 5 matches.
- Failed to score last 2 away.
- 100% wins away v 6th-13th.
- Both sides have winning form v teams around their opponent's position in the league.
- Lay any 2nd half 0-0.
- On ultra recent form, Arsenal are favoured but remember, 100% wins away for Everton v 6th-13th.
19:30 - Augsburg v Koln - 2.50 Koln
- +2.5 goals: There have been +2.5 goals in 8/12 Augsburg home matches against bottom-six teams and in 7/10 FC Koln away matches against middle-third teams. FC Koln have lost 7/10 away matches.
- I like Koln's recent matches, 0-0 and 2-1 win v Leipzig suggesting that they are making a go of avoiding relegation. A slight favouring of the away side if they can keep the goals flowing.
French Ligue 1
20:00 - Reims v Marseille - 2.15 Marseille
Reims - 11th
- Going unbeaten but....7 draws in their last 9 unbeaten matches.
- 2 consecutive 0-0's. We saw with Brentford that this sequence tends to end quickly.
- No defeat in 11 at home.
- 7 0-0's at halftime at home, only 5 at fulltime.
- Unbeaten at home v the top 12, losing to 1st and 2nd but drawing the rest at home.
- 1-1 last head to head.
- 11/15 goals conceded at home came 2nd half.
Marseille - 6th
- Only 2 losses in 11 came away.
- In 4/5 matches they scored 2+ goals.
- No win in 10 away.
- 7 0-0's at halftime away, 2 at fulltime.
- Only 1 win away v the top 12.
- Marseille's recent revival has been at home which is the negative here but only 2 losses in 11 is good recent form (albeit away losses).
- They have 2 goals in the locker if on their game.
- Reims are unbeaten but far too many draws, 7 in 9 suggests that they may be vulnerable if scoring first.
- Their conversion rate of 0-0 halftime to fulltime is very poor.
17:45 - Willem-II v RKC Waalwijk - 2.00 Willem II
Willem II - 15th
- Only 5 wins.
- A rare old run of 5 unbeaten ended with 2 consecutive defeats to nil.
- Wins at home v 8th, 10th, 16th and 17th, and did lose to 3 of these away.
- Sorry folks, I cannot read this Willem II side, they can beat, and lose to, the same sides in a season making any form very suspect. Leave this to the in-play stats.
