European Friendlies – Preview & Betting

July 27th, 2010

Tonight in Europe five top quality friendly soccer matches will go ahead, and for keen punters of the sport friendlies are the games where the odds can certainly be overcome providing big payouts.

Head to Ladbrokes.com.au if you want to make the most of the friendly odds as the countdown to the domestic leagues kick-off heats up.

Chelsea were defeated by Ajax over the weekend due to the match being a friendly and with youngsters getting a run out prior to the season, so Ladbrokes.com.au has markets for tonight’s games which could certainly see your money go far given the favourites will not necessarily deliver.

Kicking off at 3am tomorrow morning AEST, Malmo FF will welcome Fulham to the Malmo Stadion for their pre season friendly.

While Fulham rode the wave of success last season making it to the final of the 2008-09 UEFA Europa League Final, they come into the 2010-11 Premiership without wizard Roy Hodgson leading the way so it will be interesting to see how the Cottagers react.

The Londoners are at $1.91 for the win at Ladbrokes.com.au but have struggled in their last couple of friendlies drawing with fellow Swedes Halmstad 2-2 last week.

Malmo finished seventh in the Swedish Allsvenskan, and providing they run out with their finest 11 could overcome their underdog status and take the win, which they are at $3.50 to do.

One of the big guns in the Premiership and fellow London club Arsenal are also travelling, and they will play Neusiedl 1919 tonight at the Sportzentrum Neusiedl.

Arsenal are the odds-on favourites for the win at $1.14 with Ladbrokes.com.au and it is hard to see them doing anything but win against this lesser quality side.

Neusiedl 1919 play in the third tier of football in Austria – the Austrian Regional League East, and finishing seventh last season see long odds of $15 to overcome the powerful Arsenal outfit.

For this one, here at soccerbetting.com.au, we recommend going for the score line as we see it being a high scoring game for the English – perhaps a 4-0 win at $10 – as they will not want to overdo it seeing as the season is coming up soon.

There are three other top quality fixtures consisting of European clubs going on tonight, so head to Ladbrokes.com.au if you want to make the most of the friendly odds as the countdown to the domestic leagues kick-off heats up.
