Fatih Terim’s Galatasaray have had a mixed start to the campaign, and sit ninth after three games. They certainly have a talented squad, and it is up to the former Turkish national team manager to stitch it together, and challenge at the top. They drew 1-1 in their previous home game this campaign, but they looked a lot sharper in the final third during their last gasp 3-2 victory over Kayserispor just before the International Break. Gala still managed to concede twice to a side who had only scored once in their two previous games, and only a 99th minute Adem Buyuk saved them from making it three games without a win. Terim’s men are not impressive at the back, but they do possess plenty going forward, and they are bound to be entertaining to follow in the Super Lig this season. The visitors conceded four times to an average Alanyaspor side two weeks ago, and have conceded eight times in their last two encounters with Galatasaray. It could be a long afternoon for Kasimpasa, but a thoroughly entertaining one for the home faithful.
There’s another set of cracking fixtures in the Eerste Divisie on Friday night, and a number of short priced home sides that could be added to an accumulator. Volendam look one of the best prospects, and they should be able to capitalise on Dordrecht’s concentration issues at the back. The visitors have managed to stop to rot with two draws recently, but they came against AZ II and MVV, two sides who are struggling for goals at the moment. They’ve scored just nine times between them, whilst Volendam have already netted six at home. They’ve put four past Roda, and also beat NAC Breda, a recently relegated side, who sit third in the table following an impressive start to life back at this level. Last season, these two sides played out a crazy 4-5, but Volendam are unbeaten in their four previous meetings, and I think they can make it three home victories on the spin here.
Two sides meet in Northern France on Friday night having had very different starts to the campaign. Paris FC were incredibly tough to break down last season, but the majority of their better players left for pastures new in the summer. They sit rock bottom of the Ligue 2 table after six matches, having conceded 11 times, and netted on just two occasions. They went into the International Break off the back of a miserable 3-0 defeat at home to Chambly (more on them shortly…), and also had a player dismissed in that encounter. They come up against a Le Havre side who have won two of the last three meetings between the pair, and just cannot stop scoring at the moment! They’ve won four on the bounce, and scored eleven times so far. They netted three on the road at Caen two weeks ago, and look ripe for another three points here.

There are many quirks of Ligue 2, and one of those is the ability of sides promoted from the Ligue National to be able to continue their momentum and achieve promotion to the top flight. It happened with Amiens, and a number of other sides have also followed a similar trajectory. Chambly are the latest side to put their hat in the ring as unlikely promotion contenders, and they are incredibly hard to beat. They aren’t able to play their home games at their own ground, so they are competing at Stade Pierre Brisson – the home of AS Beauvais Oise. They are yet to concede a goal in any game this campaign, and tend to put safety first. They are naturally conservative, and it has worked wonders so far. They beat Paris FC 3-0 prior to the International Break, but that result came off the back of three consecutive goalless draws. Auxerre are yet to win away from home, but they did pick up a point against Clermont, and the draw is the potential scupperer here, so backing Chambly Draw No Bet will at least get us our money back if it ends all-square!
