Continental Breakfast: 5 football tips for Sunday's matches
Close your weekend out with this 11/1 five-fold that includes football tips from the Eredivisie, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A.
AZ Alkmaar to beat Heracles (13:30)
AZ Alkmaar’s 100 per cent start was halted with a 0-0 draw at home to Vitesse last weekend, but they can be confident of a victory on Sunday.
The visitors had won each of their last three league games with an aggregate score of 15-1 prior to that draw, while they beat Heracles 5-0 and 3-0 in their two meetings last season.
Heracles lost 5-0 to Willem II last time out and have won just two of their last 10 league games.
Saint Etienne to beat Amiens (14:00)
Saint Etienne extended their unbeaten start to the season with a 0-0 draw away to Montpellier last Sunday.
They beat Guingamp 2-1 on the opening day in their only home game so far, meaning they won six and lost just one of their last 10 Ligue 1 games at the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard.
Les Verts took points off both Marseille and Paris-Saint Germain in that sequence and should beat Amiens, who have lost two out of three so far.
Schalke to beat Hertha BSC (17:00)
Despite an opening-day defeat at Wolfsburg, Schalke’s impressive home record means this looks like a decent bet.
Domenico Tedesco’s side finished second to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last season, winning 10 and losing just two of their league games at the Arena AufSchalke.
Hertha lost three of their final five away games last term, including a 1-0 defeat at Schalke.
Fiorentina to beat Udinese (17:00)
Fiorentina began their league campaign with a 6-1 demolition of Chievo last weekend.
That was their fifth victory in their last eight home games in Serie A in a sequence that has seen them beat Napoli.
Udinese were held to a 2-2 draw at promoted Parma in their opener a fortnight ago and have won just one and lost six of their last eight away games.
Atalanta to beat Cagliari (19:30)
Atalanta pasted promoted side Frosinone 4-0 at home on the opening day and followed that with a 3-3 draw away to Roma.
Back at home, where they have won three of their last four and taken points from both Milan and Inter, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side should win again.
Cagliari’s 2-0 defeat at Empoli on the opening day was their fifth loss in six away games in Serie A.
