SNF: 5 football tips from Saturday's evening matches
Fund your big night out with these 22/1 European football tips from Serie A, the Eredivisie, La Liga and Ligue 1.
Napoli to beat Fiorentina (17:00)
Fiorentina looked lethargic in their 1-1 draw at strugglers Udinese last weekend, generating an xG of just 0.62.
That was the fourth Serie A match in five La Viola have failed to win, while they have managed just three league victories in 15 matches.
Napoli have won 11 and lost just one of their last 15 league games and won the reverse fixture 1-0 in September.
PEC Zwolle to win or draw against Heerenveen (17:30)
PEC Zwolle are on an impressive run of form, beating Feyenoord 3-1 in a three-match winless run.
Three of the visitor’s four away defeats this season have come against top-half opposition, so they are worth backing to avoid defeat at 13th-place Heerenveen.
Jan Olde Riekerink’s side have won just two of their last 10 games, and none of their last five.
Rayo Vallecano to win or draw against Espanyol (17:30)
After a poor start to the season, Rayo have found form of late, with four wins, one draw and one defeat from their last six matches.
Their run should continue against Espanyol, whose 2-2 draw with Villarreal ended a streak of three successive league defeats.
The Catalan side have taken just four points from their last 11 La Liga games, so it’s hard to see them taking all three this weekend.
Racing Strasbourg to beat Angers (19:30)
Strasbourg are sixth in Ligue 1, just two points off a Europa League spot, and in the Coupe de la Ligue final, having won six of their last eight matches in all competitions.
Thierry Laurey’s side have beaten Nice and Lille and drawn 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain in a run that has seen them lose just one of their last 11 home games.
That sequence includes three straight victories at the Stade de la Meinau and that should become four against an Angers side without an away win in nine.
Huesca to win or draw against Girona (19:45)
Huesca may sit bottom of La Liga, but recent results suggest that their fortunes are beginning to change.
Francisco Rodriguez’s side have lost just two of their last five matches – one of which was away to Atletico Madrid – and won 4-0 against Real Valladolid last time out.
Such an improvement was inevitable, given that they rank as high as 13th for xPts in la Liga, so they are perfectly capable of getting something at Girona.
The hosts are without a win in 12 and have lost all of their last five.
