It’s a relatively quiet Monday on the football front but there’s still some top-flight football to look forward to.
West Ham United host Stoke City at the London Stadium. Plus there’s a relegation six-pointer in Germany as Freiburg travel to play Mainz 05.
The Coral News Team run down through the fixture list and pick out some of their best acca selections…
West Ham to beat Stoke
After a traumatic spell of performances and results, West Ham are back to their relative best under David Moyes.
The Hammers notched a superb 3-0 win over Southampton at home. Then they followed it up with a credible 1-1 draw at Chelsea.
Stoke have continued to struggle under Paul Lambert. And although they need a result more than the Londoners, the Irons have the quality in the likes of in-form Marko Arnautovic to bag the win.
Mainz v Freiburg – Draw
The battle for Bundesliga safety is still raging with three sides currently trying to avoid the relegation play-off spot.
Two of those teams meet tonight as Mainz host Freiburg. Both sides are badly in need of a win with Mainz in particular three points behind their visitors.
However, both outfits are without a win in six games – the worst run in the league. Freiburg have drawn five of their last seven league away games and will likely set up to avoid defeat here.
Mainz have a major issue scoring goals, managing just two over the last six games. It’s all set up for another stalemate.
Lorient to beat Brest
Lorient are aiming at a swift return to Ligue 1 and they’ll be hopeful of a big three points away to Brest.
Mickael Landreau’s side are behind AC Ajaccio in the race of the promotion/relegation play-off place and will be gunning for a win.
Brest are hovering nicely in mid-table with nothing really to play for. Lorient are the seventh-best side on the road in Ligue 2 and could come away with a seventh away win of the campaign.
Rosenborg to beat Bodo/Glimt
Rosenborg may be struggling in the early stages of the new Eliteserien campaign in Norway. But they’ve not been champions three times in a row for nothing.
Kare Ingebrigtsen’s side have won just once in four league games. But they take on a Bodo/Glimt outfit who’ll likely be struggling for most of the campaign.
Plus Rosenborg spanked the current leaders and last season’s second-placed side Molde 4-0 in their previous game. Nicklas Bendtner and company should be far too strong for Bjorne Tore Hansen’s outfit.
