European Weekend Football Tips 3rd-4th Dec
Seventh placed Osasuna welcome Real Betis to the Reyno de Navarra. Los Rojillos picked up their first away win of the season last time out against Espanyol and will look to kick on against Sunday’s opponents Real Betis who are in a dreadful run of form, losing 8 out of their last 9 Primera Liga matches.
Despite being heavily beaten by both Real Madrid and Barcelona on the road this season, Osasuna have conceded just 3 goals at home and have only failed to score once in their last 9 league games.
Opponents Real Betis have failed to score in 6 out of their last 8 games and Osasuna look well placed to continue their unbeaten run at home this season.
Osasuna to win @2.10
Back at the start of the Bundesliga season, Hamburg were the team to oppose having lost 6 out of the opening 8 games. A managerial change saw Thorsten Fink come into the helm and the German manager is so far undefeated in his opening 5 games.
The goals aren’t exactly flying in for Fink but the Rothosen have been tighter at the back and Jaroslav Drobny’s performances between the sticks have been notably better. Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero is beginning to pick up some form and Mladen Petric and South Korean Son Heung-Min can be dangerous in attack.
Opponents Nurnberg have lost their last 4 games away from the Frankenstadion, although the Bavarian side has faced the likes of Monchengladbach, Bayern Munich and Schalke on their travels. But with just two goals scored in 4 games, goals are a cause for concern for Nurnberg and Hamburg should come away with three points and leap frog their opponents in the table.
Hamburg to win @1.90
