Sunday Betting Tips

Porto v Ajax

Porto drew their previous friendly match in Germany against Preussen, although they did hit the woodwork 5 times and faced an inspired performance from the German keeper. They have a slightly changed side from last season with the imminent departures of Raul Meireles and Bruno Alves, but still have some strong players.

Ajax are severely weakened for this game. Stekelenberg, Van der Wiel, De Zeeuw, Suarez and Lodeiro are rested after the World Cup, whilst Miralem Sulejmani is injured. They have youth players up front for this game, and coach Martin Jol is being linked with a move away from the club back to the Premiership.

Although pre-season friendlies are often quite difficult to predict, I would be surprised if Ajax were able to get a result in Portugal with such a weakened squad.

Bet: Porto to win @ 1.75

Final Result: Porto 1 - 0 Ajax

Viking v Honefoss

Since the summer break, Viking have been in impressive form, racking up 3 straight victories, including a comeback from 2-0 down in their last game to win 3-2. They have been strong at home this season with only 1 defeat from 8 games, and only 5 goals conceded. With only 1 injury, they have an almost full-strength side for this game.

Honefoss are fighting relegation and have a poor away record this season, with only 4 points from a possible 24, and only 2 goals scored. They have 2 players out through suspension and at least 4 players out through injury. This will be a difficult game for them.

Viking will be looking to continue their good form against a weak Honefoss team, weakened through injury and suspension. They should be able to record a solid victory.

Bet: Viking -1.5AH @ 1.82

Final Result: Viking 4 - 0 Honefoss

Pribram v Banik Ostrava

Pribram begin their season with a weakened squad, having lost 4 players to Banik during pre-season, as well as losing their coach. With little money to spend on replacements, they will struggle to get a result here.

Banik Ostrava are eyeing up a top 3 finish and will be looking to get off to a good start. They have lost their two top strikers over the summer, but have signed decent replacements, who they will be hoping can find the goals. They won 6-0 away from home against WIT Georgia in the Europa League on Thursday, suggesting they are looking good.

It would be a surprise if Pribram were to win this, and I expect Banik Ostrava to get their domestic season off to a good start here.

Bet: Banik Ostrava to win @ 2.25

Final Result: Pribram 0 - 0 Banik Ostrava

England U19 v Austria U19

The opening match for England in these finals is vital. The top two sides qualify from the group and with the French and the Dutch also in the group, they will be looking to get off to a good start. England reached the final a year ago, with Aston Villa striker, Nathan Delfouneso, winning the Golden Boot. He returns again this year, with Frank Nouble, both of whom have Premiership experience. Talented midfield duo, John Bostock and Matt James are backed up by Crystal Palace’s Nathaniel Clyne, Aston Villa’s Nathan Baker and Arsenal’s Tom Cruise in defence.

Austria are delighted merely to have qualified, with a dramatic 4-3 victory against Denmark securing their spot in France. They have a number of players from German and Italian sides, as well as Aston Villa striker, Andreas Weimann, who finished as the top scorer in the Premiership reserve league last season.

England are hoping to go one better than last year and win this tournament, whilst Austria are happy simply to have made it. England should have the ability to get off to a good start here.

Bet: England U19 to win @ 1.66

Final Result: England U19 3 - 2 Austria U19
