Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid - Real Madrid Win - 2.00 – Saturday 27 July
This match between these two La Liga arch-rivals will definitely be more than a pre-season friendly. In their last La Liga encounter, Madrid won 3-1 away to Atletico. Atletico have only beaten their crosstown rivals once in five matches. In the last ten matches between these two, Madrid have won four, lost two and drawn four. For that reason, Zinedine Zidane’s men have the upper hand. Please note, this game is played very early on Saturday morning. Get your bets in on Friday.
FC Basel v St. Gallen - Both Teams to Score - 1.70 – Saturday 27 July
Swiss giants Basel have won their last four matches in the Swiss Super League. Both teams have found the back of the net in four of the last five matches between these two teams. Both teams have scored in four of Basel’s last five matches in all competitions. Furthermore, in three of St. Gallen’s last six matches, both teams have scored in three. Therefore, an end-to-end encounter is on the cards.
Cercle Brugge v Standard Liege - Standard Liege Win - 1.85 – Saturday 27 July
Standard Liege have won seven of their last 15 league games, drawn two and lost the other six. In addition, they’ve beaten Cercle Brugge in four of their last five meetings. Cercle have had a terrible pre-season where they were winless in six matches. What’s startling is the home side have won just two of their last 20 games in all competitions. On that account, the away side is the favourite.
AC Milan v Benfica - Both Teams to Score - 1.50 – Sunday 28 July
Both teams have scored in the last three meetings between these two rivals. Benfica have kept just two clean sheets in their last six matches. Furthermore, Milan have only failed to score in one of their last five matches. As a result, an open and entertaining match full of goals is expected.
Ostersunds Fk v Malmo FF - Malmo FF Win - 1.60 – Sunday 28 July
Giants Malmo have beaten Ostersunds four times in their last six meetings. The hosts have won just once in their last six matches in the Allsvenskan, while Malmo, the most successful club in Sweden, have won three, lost one and drawn two in the league.
