Today’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me pick two teams at home that should collect all 3 points, with at least a couple of goals in both matches.
Borussia Dortmund vs Eintracht Frankfurt
⏰ Saturday 14th August, 17:30
Borussia Dortmund host Eintracht Frankfurt in the late kick off at the Signal Iduna Park. This is a meeting between two sides who finished 3rd and 5th in the Bundesliga last season respectively.
Dortmund kicked off their season with a 0-3 win away to Wehen Wiesbaden in the DFB Pokal, with Erling Haaland scoring a hat trick. Dortmund finished last season very strongly winning their last 7 Bundesliga games on the bounce, scoring a minimum of 2 goals in all those victories. Dortmund won 6 of their last 7 home games scoring 18 goals. Dortmund scored a minimum of 2 goals in all 11 of their victories at the Signal Iduna Park last season.
Frankfurt kicked off their season with a 2-0 defeat away to third tier side Waldhof Mannheim. Frankfurt’s form capitulated at the end of last season, losing 3 of their last 6 games. Frankfurt were patchy away from home last season, winning only 6 of their 17 away games, losing 6. All 6 of those defeats saw them concede a minimum of 2 goals.
Benfica vs Arouca
🇵🇹 Liga NOS
⏰ Saturday 14th August, 18:00
Benfica host newly promoted Arouca at the Estádio Da Luz on Saturday. This is a meeting between two sides who both finished their respective leagues in 3rd place last season.
Benfica kicked off their Liga NOS campaign with a 1-2 victory away to Moreirense, despite playing the majority of the 2nd half with 10 men. That victory was sandwiched between two 2-0 victories over Spartak Moscow to qualify for the play off round of the Champions League. Benfica won 12 of their 17 home games last season, scoring a minimum of 2 goals in 11 of those victories.
Arouca kicked off their Liga NOS campaign with a 0-2 defeat at home to fellow newly promoted side Estoril. That came after a 0-1 defeat to Rio Ave in the Taca da Liga (the same side they defeated 5-0 in last seasons relegation/promotion play off). Arouca are winless in their last 7 trips to the Estádio Da Luz, losing 6 and conceding 23 goals.
Bet of the Day
Both Dortmund and Frankfurt ended last season in contrasting form and I’m backing the home side to collect all 3 points in a game that should see goals. Benfica have started this season in good form and should record a comfortable victory over newly promoted Arouca.
