Manchester United host Everton at Old Trafford for a chance to make it to the top 10 on the Premier League table. The Red Devils had the worst start of the season in their history, even after Van Gaal’s arrival, but change needs time, time which did not have to include the humiliating defeat to Leicester. Everton are not doing better either; they are on the 15th place, with only 6 points out of the same number of matches.
Man United have a solid front line and midfield, but the defensive errors have been their demise this season. Apart from their injury list, the team started getting good news: Fellaini might get to play against his former team, while Phil Jones has returned to training and could be back to give a boost to the defense. Van Gaal knows there’s no time to compromise on the backline while waiting for Falcao, Di Maria or Van Persie to score, yet he still is against trusting McNair with a starting spot. With Wayne Rooney suspended, Juan Mata will resume his spot as a number 10, which is his natural playing position which offers the player much more room for movements.
Everton come from two consecutive draws, one against Liverpool and a rather embarrassing on in Europa League against Krasnodar. The visitors are the team to concede the most goals in this Premier League edition, and having to play without Barkley and Mirallas has been leaving a toll on the team. Considering United’s weakness, Lukaku, Naismith and Baines might find the back of the net. Last term Everton won both matches, and will look forward to repeating said performance.

Bordeaux will look forward to get closer to Marseille on the Ligue 1 table, as they get ready to play against Reims, who are dangling in the relegation zone. Ladbrokes gives the hosts 3.30 odds for an unlikely win, while Bordeaux got 2.20. Last season the hosts finished in the top 10 teams of the French football, managed to keep clean sheets in four matches against Bordeaux, who this season managed to score at least a goal in all of their matches.
Reims come from two consecutive disasters, after a 0-5 defeat to Marseille; they lost 3-0 against Metz, which have raised the bar of them conceding at least two goals per match. They seem to be doomed against Bordeaux again especially since their goalkeeper has not recovered from his shoulder injury, while Mavinga and Albaek are both suspended. Rumors have it that Jean-Luc Vassier might be let go from the manager position after the Friday match, as his team sits one point away from the bottom of the Ligue 1 table after 8 match days.
Bordeaux won against Rennes with a goal in the last minute, which has allowed them to keep the pressure on Marseille. Diego Contento will miss the selection due to injury, while Sane underwent a surgery at the beginning of the week, and will need several weeks before returning to the team. Willy Sagnol hopes his team will be able to break the curse of not being able to score against Reims while keeping a clean sheet.
Bordeaux for both halves has 3.70, Reims at 5.50, and another draw has 3.25 odds. Under 1.5 goals has 2.80 odds, Bordeaux to score first at 1.83, Reims at 2.25 and the visitors to keep a clean sheet at 2.55. Bordeaux to lead after 60 minutes has 2.55 odds, Reims 3.40, and the hosts to score two goals at 3.80. We are going to bet 7 units on Bordeaux to score the first goal after the 32 minute at 3.10 with Ladbrokes.
FC Sevilla travel to Croatia to face HNK Rijeka in the second round of the group stage. The current title holders started the competition on the right foot and won against Feynoord with a clean sheet and two goals while Rijeka lost with the same score against Standard Liege. The hosts have excellent home support, but Sevilla are the better team, and as it stands they have a title to defend, which shows just why the bookmakers favor the visitors for this match.
Rijeka are nine matches without losing on European stage at home. In the domestic championship they are on the second place with eight wins and two defeats. Their most recent home result is a 3-0 win over Zagreb, where their main goalscorer, Kramaric, managed a brace. Just five minutes apart. Despite not having much experience in Europe, they are aware of the threat Sevilla have as well as of the fact that the visitors have an attacking line, which has allowed them to win against Benfica.
Sevilla come from a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid that put an end to their seven matches unbeaten run. In La Liga they are on the 4th place, three points short of the leader. Cristoforo and Gameiro trained with the rest of the team for the first time in over six months since his injury, and his return to the squad will only serve for Bacca to keep his scoring form. Sevilla are also adapting to their new players as during the transfer window they have changed more than 50% of their players.
Bet365 favors Sevilla to win outright at 1.90, Rijeka at 4.00, while the draw has been given 3.40 odds. Sevilla to win both halves has 3.00 odds, Gameiro to sore anytime at 2.40, Bacca at 2.60 and Deulofeu at 3.10. Sevilla to win to nil at 3.25, Rijeka at 7.00, the visitors to score in the first half has odds as low as 1.83. Our bet will be with 7 units on between 9 and 11 corners with 2.75 odds from Bet365.
