Last week we landed our 3/1 accumulator, was pretty easy. This week we’ll be getting down and dirty with the asian handicap trebles we know and love from last season.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg 1430hrs
First stop, and the first of two German ties, we go to Leverkusen. Last season Leverkusen were very impressive finishing third and only narrowly missing out on second spot. Leverkusen have had an excellent pre-season with a notable 4-0 win against Vitesse and brushed Lipstadt aside in the Pokal during the week.
Sure they lost Schurrle to Chelsea but they have wasted no time spending 21 million Euros strengthen their squad. Conversely Freiburg have spent 1.8 million Euros. Freiburg struggled in the Pokal during the week, against weak opposition. They’ve had a fair pre-season, nothing special results wise. They were good last season but it won’t carry through to this season. They’ll cover the handicap no problem especially given as it’s at home.
BET – Bayer Leverkusen -1 AH @ 1.70 (bet365)
Augsburg vs Borussia Dortmund 1430hrs
I bet against Augsburg in the week in the Pokal against Red Bull Leipzig, it didn’t work out but that was against a third tier team, today, last season’s Champion’s League runners up come to town. They were impressive against Bayern Munich in the Super Cup, beating the German champions. They will have to improve this season to challenge Bayern but I foresee a few years of Catalan-eque rivalry in German with these Giants.
Augsburg have strengthened in the summer but haven’t spent anything like Dortmund have. This -1 Asian Handicap is as easy as they come and I wouldn’t be surpassed if it shortens between now and Kick off
BET – Borussia Dortmund -1 AH @ 1.73 (bet365)
Tavriya vs Shakhtar Donetsk 1730hrs
At times last season Shakhtar Donetsk were irresistible and this summer they have spent spent spent. Replacing Fernandinho they have brought in Fred from Internacional and the have brought in wonderkid Bernard to join the attacking ranks, these just two of the five South American signings.
Tavriya have lost their first four games and sit bottom, Shakhtar have won their first four games and sit top… quite a contrast. The score in this game could get silly. I’m happy that Shakhtar Donetsk will continue their impressive start and bag at least two.
