The Swedish Superettan for me is the most readable league today and would be my league of focus. The AFC United match looks the most readable. Selected tennis matches. I would recommend if you can follow the tennis to insert these matches into My Games at www.flashscore.com/tennis so you can follow their progress as and when they start. Once the French Open proper begins, I will be following as many of the early round matches as possible.

SWEDISH ALLSVENSKAN

18:00 - IFK Goteborg v Djurgardens - 2.38 Djurgardens

  • Djurgardens have won the last 3 head to heads.

IFK

  • Loss, Win, Win, Loss at home.
  • Only 1 clean sheet.
  • 3 of 4 defeats have come v the current top 3, and they play 7th today.
  • 5/6 matches played v 6th and lower saw both teams score.

Djurgardens

  • 2 consecutive wins ends a run of 3 consecutive defeats.
  • Win, Loss, Draw, Loss, Loss away.1-0-2-0-0 goals scored away early season.
  • 0-1 v 8th, 1-0 loss v 9th and 1-0 loss v 11th away. Playing 10th today.

Conclusions

  • It is a bit too early in the season for these 2. Big gaps in form for Goteborg.
  • I do though note Djurgardens poor scoring so lay them if they score first as they have had trouble scoring that 2nd goal. Goteborg have scored and conceded in 5/6 matches v 6th and lower.

18:00 - Dalkurd FF v Elfsborg - 2.48 Dalkurd

  • No recent head to heads suggests for me that Dalkurd are newly promoted.

Dalkurd

  • Bottom of the league early on.
  • Only 1 win this season.
  • 3-0, 2-2, 1-2 at home suggests they may be more reliable with home advantage.
  • 6 defeats and a draw in 7 matches.
  • Only 1 clean sheet came in that home win.
  • Not played 12th and lower home and away and play 14th today.

Elfsborg

  • 3 defeats and a win away so far.
  • Only 1 win this season.
  • Only 2 clean sheets.
  • Not played bottom 4 away.

Conclusions

  • There were some readable Swedish matches yesterday but there are 'gaps ' in the form today.
  • Elfsborg are yet to meet the bottom 4 away so we don't know how they'll get on today v bottom. This is a bottom side, Dalkurd, scoring 3-2-1 goals at home. They may actually surprise today. Note there are no head to heads.
  • Elfsborg have scored 0-0-1-2 away this season. The 1 and 2 were scored v 11th and 12th away.

18:00 - Trelleborgs v Brommapojkarna - 2.18 Trelleborgs

  • 13th and 12th in the league play each other here.

Trelleborgs

  • Only 1 loss in 4 matches.
  • Loss, Loss, Loss, Loss, Win (v Malmo!) at home.
  • Only 1 clean sheet came in that win.
  • Not played a side 11th and lower at home.
  • Scored 2 goals only once this season.

Bromma

  • 2 wins in 3 matches came at home.
  • 4/4 losses away.
  • No draw saw only 3 wins.
  • Conceded 2+ goals in their last 4 away.
  • Not played a side 12th and lower away.

Conclusions

  • Bromma's away form is concerning but note there is another gap in the form. They have not played 12th or lower away so we don't know if they will perform better v the lesser lights early season.
  • Trelleborgs have trouble scoring 2 goals. Usually I'd say lay Trelleborgs if they score first given they are unlikely to follow up with a 2nd goal. Then they go and beat Champions-elect Malmo 1-0!! Bromma are conceding 2 goals away too.
  • This may suggest to us to lay the first team to score?
  • Realistically, today's Swedish Allsvenskan matches are not readable enough for me. There are no strong form lines (unlike yesterday).

SWEDISH SUPERETTAN

18:00 - Norrby IF v Helsingborgs - 1.99 Helsingborgs

  • 3-2 Helsingborgs and 3-2 Norrby in the last 2 head to heads.

Norrby (13th)

  • 2 0-0's in their last 3 matches came away from home.
  • 3 consecutive home defeats.
  • Conceded 2+ goals in each of their last 3 home matches.
  • Not played top 6 at home.

Helsingborgs (4th)

  • Only 1 loss came v 2nd.
  • Only clean sheet came last match.
  • Failed to score in only 1 match.
  • 1-5, 1-1, 1-1 in the 3 away matches.
  • Unbeaten v 6th and lower.

Conclusions

  • Interesting head to heads. We may see both teams score but Helsingborgs not lose today. That would be my angle here. Norrby are conceding 2+ goals at home regularly. Helsingborgs are scoring and conceding away. I would lay Norrby if Norrby scored first.

18:00 - AFC Utd v Gefle - 1.53 AFC Utd

AFC Utd

  • 5 wins and a 2-2 last 6 matches.
  • 6 clean sheets in 8 matches this season.
  • 0-4-3-2 goals scored at home, 0-0-0-2 goals conceded.

Gefle

  • Only 2 wins.
  • 3 consecutive losses conceding 2+ goals and indeed scoring in defeat.
  • 5 losses and a 0-0 v top 9 home and away.

Conclusions

  • The market is right here. I think AFC could score 2+ goals today and on that basis should win, even if conceding (and Gefle have been scoring in defeat recently).

TENNIS

French Open qualifiers

Yasutaka Uchiyama v Simone Bolelli - 1.12 Bolelli

  • 172nd Bolelli's name is immediately recognisable.
  • He has been in excellent clay court form recently, albeit in Challenger format. This is a clay court qualifier of course. I expect a Bolelli win.
  • 223rd ranked Uchiyama is a bit of an unknown. No recent clay court form.

WTA NURNBERG

Kiki Bertens v Mona Barthel - 1.26 Kiki

  • 31st v 47th.
  • 9-3 Barthel in head to heads. Last head to head 2016.
  • Bertens a finalist in Madrid on clay, poor one round exit in Roma and a 6-1 6-1 here in Nurnberg.
  • Twice Barthel have not gone through clay court qualifiers. Barthel retired too in Madrid. I do think that Mona may carry a niggle and with Bertens in rock solid recent form in Madrid, that Bertens should win.

ATP GENEVA

Sam Querrey v Guido Pella - 1.97 Pella

  • 1-1 head to heads.
  • 13th v 64th.
  • Both head to heads were 3 setters, 2018 saw Pella won.
  • I think this will be a 3 setter, so close was the last head to head. Lay the first set winner.

Lukas Rosol v Steve Johnson - 1.37 Johnson

  • 203rd v 44th.
  • 4 3 setters in 5 matches for Rosol suggests he is layable if winning the first set.
  • A recent final win on clay in Houston sees Steve in good nick on clay.

Andreas Seppi v Peter Gojowczyk - 1.89 Seppi

  • 86th v 60th.
  • Peter has had a 2nd wind after a dire recent run of clay court events, beating old stagers Ivo Karlovic and David Ferrer, 2 players on the wain it must be said.
  • Seppi round of 16 in Monte Carlo, semi finals on clay in Budapest but 3 set loss first round Istanbul and Rome.
  • Is Peter having a mini-revival or has he just met stars on the decline? If the former, then lay Seppi if Seppi wins the first set.
  • In fact an argument for laying the first set winner. Seppi's last 3 clay court losses have been over 3 sets so if he is to lose he will likely lose while fighting.

Tennys Sandgren v Fabio Fognini - 1.41 Fognini

  • 96th v 27th.
  • Foggy won a 3 setter this year on clay in Brazil.
  • A superb Rome tournament for Foggy saw him take a set of Nadal on clay.
  • After a final in Houston, Tennys has first round exits in 4 consecutive clay court events.
  • Foggy may be liable to a first set defeat as happened yesterday but I am with him today to continue his Rome clay form.

Stan Wawrinka v Marton Fucsovics - 1.52 Wawrinka

  • I will stick with Stan in his home town to give a good account of himself even if losing the first set.

ATP LYON

Cameron Norrie v John Isner - 1.32 Isner

  • 114th v 17th.
  • 2nd seed here Isne.
  • Unspectacular form Norrie on clay, tending to max out in the 2nd round of tournaments.
  • Isner winner Houston on hard, quarters at Houston and Madrid on clay and 3 tie breaker set losses in Rome.
  • There is always that concern with Big Bad John that he can lose matches on tie breakers as he is a little one dimensional.
  • But in Norrie we do not see a player in very good clay court form. Isner all the way for me today.

Taylor Fritz v Dusan Lajovic - 1.6 Lajovic

  • Fritz failed to get out of the qualifiers at Madrid and Rome, tournaments where Dusan reached the quarter finals (Madrid) and failed to beat the then-in-form Stefanos Tsitsipas to get out of qualifers.
  • I am with the market. I do not expect a Dusan 2-0 loss.

Dominic Thiem v Guillermo Garcia-Lopez - 1.14 Thiem

  • 5th v 70th.
  • Quarters Monte Carlo and Barcelona, final Madrid on clay sees Thiem expected to win in 2 sets here today.
  • First round exit Madrid, failed to get out of qualifiers Rome sees Lopez in hugely contrasting clay court form.
