Leeds v West Bromwich – Championship – Both Teams to Score – 1.60 – Tuesday 1st  October

After an excellent start to the season, Leeds United are struggling with just one win in their last four games in the Championship. Unlike their opponents, who have won three of their last four league games, the hosts have issues to resolve. Leeds have scored at least one goal in six of their last eight league games whilst West Brom are yet to fail to score in all their outings in all competitions since the beginning of the season.

Reading v Fulham – Championship – Under 2.5 Goals – 2.50 – Tuesday 1st  October

Fulham bounced back during the weekend with a win over Wigan following three consecutive draws and they will be hoping to continue with that against Reading. Both sides are struggling at the moment as Fulham have a single win in their last five Championship games. Both teams have had Under 2.5 Goals scored in their last five games in all competitions and in their last five Championship matchess, making this a worthy punt.

RB Leipzig v Lyon – Champions League – RB Leipzig Win –  1.65 – Wednesday 2nd  October

Lyon are in trouble with no win in their last seven league games in the build-up to this trip to Germany to face RB Leipzig. The Germans have done pretty well for themselves this season with just one loss in their last eight games in all competitions. This fixture has come at a good time for the Germans who won their first group game against Benfica. They will want to respond to the weekend’s defeat against Schalke with a win here.

Braga v Slovan Bratislava – Europa League – Both Teams to Score – 2.05- Thursday 3rd  October

This is a match to follow closely between two teams that won their first matches in the group stage of the Europa League. Braga had managed to win in England against Wolverhampton while Slovan overcame Besiktas 4-2. Slovan have scored at least one goal in their last ten games in all competitions whilst Braga have scored in eight of their last ten outings.

Oleksandriya v Gent – Europa League – Gent Win – 1.75- Thursday 3rd  October

After the 3-1 defeat at Wolfsburg on the first day, Oleksandriya will receive Gent who started in the best way possible with a win over St Etienne 3-2. The meeting promises to be difficult for the Ukrainians as the Belgians are on a ten-game run without defeat in all competitions, including eight wins and two draws.
