Continental Breakfast: 5 football tips for Sunday's matches
Close out your weekend with these 11/1 European football tips from the Russian Premier League, Ligue 1, Austrian Bundesliga and Bundesliga.
Zenit St Petersburg to beat Ufa (13:30)
Ufa have the third-worst travelling record in the Russian Premier League and are the only side yet to win away this season.
They lost 2-0 at home in the reverse fixture in August and, against the side with the second-best home record, will surely suffer another defeat.
Zenit are top of the table and have won 12 of their 15 matches in all competitions at the Krestovsky Stadium this season, including six out of eight in the league.
Lille to beat Saint Etienne (14:00)
Saint Etienne lost 2-0 away to Marseille last weekend, meaning they have won just two of their last eight games in all competitions.
That sequence includes three defeats from four games at the Stade Geoffrey Guichard.
Second-placed Lille have won six and lost just one of their last eight away games in all competitions, so I’m all over them at this price.
RB Salzburg to beat Sturm Graz (16:00)
Salzburg were beaten 3-0 by Napoli in the Europa League on Thursday, but they can make amends back at the Red Bull Arena, where they have dropped just two points in 10 league games.
Marco Rose’s side are 11 points clear at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga and have won 16 and lost just one of their 20 matches in the league.
Sturm Graz have managed just three victories in 10 matches away from home and are on a run of one victory in four games.
Leverkusen to beat Hannover (17:00)
Hannover were hammered 5-1 away to fellow relegation candidates Stuttgart last weekend and have lost seven of their last eight matches.
Their only victory in 13 games came against bottom-of-the-league Nuremberg, while they have taken just 10 points in 12 matches at the HDI Arena – fewer than any other side in the Bundesliga.
Leverkusen beat Freiburg 2-0 last Saturday and have won five of their last six league games, only failing to beat league leaders Dortmund.
Marseille to beat Nice (20:00)
Marseille have dropped just two points in their last five league games in a run that includes three straight victories at the Stade Velodrome.
Rudi Garcia’s side leapfrogged Saint Etienne to move fourth in Ligue 1 last weekend after beating them 2-0 in a game that saw Mario Balotelli celebrate the opening goal by posting a video to his Instagram account.
Nice have lost their last three away games without scoring and are winless in eight games on the road in all competitions.
