For today’s Bet Of The Day Tips, we have four matches on cue as usual and they are:
Istanbul Basaksehir vs Kayserispor
Istanbul Basaksehir lost to Galatasaray last weekend and the loss has pushed them down to third place in the Super Lig standings. Abdullah Avci’s men will be looking to rebound from the loss right away on Friday when they host the sixth-placed Kayserispor at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadyumu.
Kayserispor were on a horrendous streak of three straight defeats with a humiliating 0-11 goal difference along the way, but they managed to arrest the slump last weekend by narrowly defeating Genclerbirligi 3-2. Our prediction is Istanbul Basaksehir to win this game.
Waterford vs Bray Wanderers
Waterford who is newly promoted to the premier division has performed admirably well so far in the Irish Premier Division. They have won all their five home matches this season and look set to continue the winning streak against a struggling Bray Wanderers team on Friday night.
Waterford is currently 4th on the table with 21 points, 6 behind league leaders Dundalk. Bray Wanderers, on the other hand, is having a terrible season, they just recorded their first win of the season. They were able to beat the inconsistent Shamrock Rovers side by a 1-0 margin, having lost 9 games on the bounce since a draw in the opening week of the season. It is not a surprise to see Bray at the foot of the table on 4 points. Our prediction is Waterford to win this game.
Sporting Braga vs Maritimo
Sporting Braga and Maritimo are set to raise the curtain on the Matchday No 31 in Primeira Liga. It will also be one of the most entertaining clashes of the round given both teams’ form. The hosts are looking to move level on points with Sporting CP in third place with a win here, but they’ll have to put up a strong display to get there as Maritimo come into this unbeaten in five matches.
The Archbishops have been enjoying a spectacular run of form lately. They won eight and drew one of last nine league outings, a streak which includes the 1-0 win over the likes of Sporting CP in late-March. Abel Ferreira truly has some in-form high-quality attackers in his ranks, led by Wilson Eduardo and Dyego Sousa who have both been thriving up front lately.
Team’s top scorer is, however, a midfielder. His name is Ricardo Horta and he has 11 goals to his name so far in the season. This trio inspired the phenomenal streak for Braga and they take the credits for the fact the Archbishops bagged seven goals in last two league games against Feirense and Pacos Ferreira. It might be a tight game but we are backing Braga to win this one.
Dijon vs Lyon
Dijon is in 12th place and safe for this season which means they can enjoy the game. They got a very good point away to Nantes in their last match and has lost just 1 game in the past month. At home Dijon won 30 of their 42 point total and winning at this stadium has saved their season. The club has won 9 times from 16 games losing just 4 times but their last game here did end in defeat when they lost 3-2 to Marseille.
Lyon has been the best team in France in recent form with 5 wins in a row and they are scoring many goals too. 8 goals in their last two games and the club are really on fire. They are just 4 points from second-placed Monaco but their real option is to at least finish in the top 3 for a Champions League place and Marseille has the same points as them in 4th so every game counts.
Lyon’s away form is only second to PSG, and they won 34 points on the road from a possible 51. Lyon has lost 4 games all season away and is coming on the back of a 4 match unbeaten streak. Our prediction is Lyon to win this game.
