IT'S another busy Friday night card with a full set of fixtures from French Ligue 2, Dutch Eerste and the Austrian 2nd tier.
I'll be on the usual loose change goal tips from these leagues but it's France where most of my attention will be focused as we reach the Ligue 2 promotion run-in.
Orleans and Troyes will battle it out tonight, both with aspirations of moving up to the top flight. Troyes are the league's form side and are on an incredible run of results that has propelled them to within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots.
But they'll face a tough ask against an Orleans side who are extremely useful at home and need the win to have any chance of securing a play-off spot. Expecting an open game with both sides finding the net.
Orleans vs Troyes (7pm)
A point isn't going to be good enough for either of these sides' promotion hopes and with so much riding on this match neither side can afford to sit back.
Troyes have ended the season like a freight train, collecting an incredible 26 points from the last 30 available (8 wins, 2 draws) and they'll be looking to make it a 6th win the bounce as they try and close the gap on Brest to 4 points.
They've scored in 14 of their last 16 away games and will be full of confidence coming into but they face a stern test against an Orleans side who are unbeaten in their last 6 at home, scoring 2 goals in each of their last 4 matches.
They have only kept 2 clean sheets though at home in their last 11 and they will do well to avoid conceding against this Troyes side.
Two sides with plenty to play for and both needing to win should lead to an attacking match with goals from both sides at an attractive price.
- Over 2.5 match goals
- 63/50 (Marathonbet) (NAP)
Austrian Liga.2 (6.10pm)
Full card tonight and I will be on over 1.5 goals in all 7 matches – this has landed in 4 of the last 5 Fridays and won't be far away in a league that sees lots of goals so worth some loose change on over 2.5 goals too.
- All 7 matches over 1.5 goals
