Getafe are second-bottom of La Liga having lost four games out of four.

Michel’s side have scored one goal in that period and look set for another defeat here.

Rayo Vallecano thumped Granada 4-0 in their only home game of the season so far and have taken four points from their last two matches.

Huddersfield to beat Nottingham Forest (15:00) {ODDS:793487413:23/20}

Huddersfield come into this on the back of a 3-0 victory away to struggling Blackpool on Tuesday night.

That was the Terriers’ fourth league win in five matches, with their only defeat in that run coming against promotion challengers Stoke.

Bottom-of-the-league Nottingham Forest sacked manager Chris Hughton on Thursday, having taken one point from their opening seven matches in the Championship.

Leyton Orient to beat Bristol Rovers (15:00) {ODDS:793257696:8/5}

Leyton Orient thumped struggling Oldham 4-0 last weekend to climb go fourth in League Two.

Kenny Jackett’s side have taken seven points from their last three matches and look great value to add another three against opposition in bad shape.

Bristol Rovers are third-bottom with seven points from seven games and were beaten 1-0 by Hartlepool last weekend.

Hartlepool to beat Oldham (15:00) {ODDS:793278991:6/4}

Bottom-of-the-league Oldham have lost six games out of seven in League Two so far.

The Latics have shipped seven goals without reply in defeats to Barrow and Leyton Orient, while their total of 14 conceded goals is a league high.

Hartlepool have won three of their last five matches and should get the better of a team in disarray.

Cologne to beat RB Leipzig (17:30) {ODDS:786003668:100/30}

Leipzig come into this on the back of a 6-3 pasting away to Manchester City in the Champions League in midweek.

Jesse Marsch’s side have lost three on the spin and three out of four in the Bundesliga this season.

Cologne have taken seven points from their opening four matches, with a 3-2 defeat away to Bayern Munich their only loss so far.


BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Genoa v Fiorentina (14:00) {ODDS:795542976:6/5}

This bet has landed in three of Genoa’s four matches this season, with a 4-0 defeat at Inter the only exception.

Their last four home games have finished 2-1, 4-3, 3-2 and 2-1.

Fiorentina’s three Serie A matches so far have all seen this bet land.

Over 2.5 goals in AFC Wimbledon v Plymouth (15:00) {ODDS:792529523:4/5}

AFC Wimbledon’s last four matches have finished 2-2, 3-1, 5-3 and 4-3.

Over 2.5 goals has landed in three of their four home matches this season, and in eight of their last nine at Plough Lane overall.

Plymouth won 3-0 against Sheffield Wednesday last time out, while three of their last four away games have seen at least three goals. This fixture finished 4-4 last season.

BTTS in Lens v Lille (16:00) {ODDS:786519625:7/8}

BTTS has landed in four of Lens’ five games so far this season, including 2-2 and 3-2 scorelines in their last two.

They have scored and conceded in seven of their last nine home matches.

There have been goals at both ends in all of Lille’s three away matches this season.


Sadio Mane to score and Liverpool to beat Crystal Palace (15:00) {ODDS:794774485:6/5}

Mane was rested for Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Milan on Wednesday, so is certain to come back into the side for this match.

The Senegalese forward netted in last week’s 3-0 win at Leeds, his second goal of the season. He took 10 shots in that match, meaning he ranks top of the Premier League for xG.

Palace have already been beaten 3-0 at Chelsea this season, and a similar beating likely awaits them here.

Anthony Scully (Lincoln) to score v Ipswich {ODDS:795565998:7/5}

Scully has scored nine goals in his last eight appearances, including a hat-trick and two braces.

He ranks fourth in League One for shots per game so far this season and is 12th for xG.

Ipswich have been the worst defensive team in League One so far, conceding 15 goals in six games – three more than the next-worst side.
