FRIDAY NIGHT IN EUROPE: Our football tipster The Ultra previews Friday’s games between JUVENTUS v TORINO and ELCHE v RAYO VALLECANO both previewed with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
JUVENTUS V TORINO
7.45pm It’s been a very busy week in Europe on BETDAQ Betting Exchange! with the Champions League and Europa League. We’ve had some blockbuster fixtures, but we kick off the weekend with Friday night football from Serie A and La Liga! Usually we have one game from the Bundesliga and one from La Liga but we are changing it up this week! Juventus are in action in Serie A and they can set up a nice weekend with a win here to confirm their spot back in the top four. They had a very slow start to the season and it took them a while to adjust to life with the goals from Ronaldo but they have some excellent momentum now. They are two points ahead of Atalanta, and although Atalanta have a game in hand Juventus will be confident of getting that fourth position and the all-important Champions League spot. I have to say it looked unlikely as they sat in mid-table after their start to the season but they are playing some good football now – although it has to be said that they were lucky to pick up a draw away to Atalanta last weekend.
Juventus have put a good run together by putting the average sides to the sword, and they have built on their momentum to win from seemingly impossible positions. They scored three goals in a few minutes to win 4-3 against Roma after being 3-1 down for example. With Torino sitting in mid-table and coming into this game without a three this looks like an excellent opportunity for Juventus to put a bit of distance between themselves and Atalanta to put the pressure on. I was surprised to see Juventus trading as big as 1.63 when I clicked into the market – I felt we would see a price very close to 1.5 and I feel the 1.63 offers excellent value. Torino are in the bottom three on away form this season – they’ve only picked up eight points from 11 games and with Juventus full of confidence, this is three points there for the taking. I feel the 1.63 offers so much value it’s worth a Max Bet.
The Ultra Says:
Five points win Juventus to beat Torino at 1.63 with BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE.

ELCHE V RAYO VALLECANO
8pm Next we move to La Liga as Elche host Rayo Vallecano. I’m sure a lot of casual football fans will just skip over this fixture but I find it fascinating! Rayo Vallecano had a superb start to life in La Liga and at one point they were definitely in the mix for the European football spots. Their hopes of that have come to an abrupt halt with their current run of form. They have slipped down to 11th in the table with just one win from their last seven La Liga games. In fairness to them, if you offered mid-table at this stage of the season when they first came up to La Liga they would have happily accepted it, so when you step back you can see that they are still having a fantastic season to be fair – let’s not forget that they finished 6th in the Segunda last season. Elche’s fantastic run of results came to an end last weekend with a 2-0 loss to Sevilla. That wasn’t unexpected though, as although they had a fantastic run to just get away from the relegation battle their level of performance didn’t really change and they got some very lucky results. For example they picked up a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid but conceded an xG of 5.24!
Both sides playing average football is what makes this fixture so interesting from a betting point of view. It’s no surprise to see an extremely open market here – indeed both sides are actually trading within ten ticks of each other at the time of writing. Although their season has hit a wall, I feel this is a good chance for Rayo Vallecano to get back to winning ways. Although they have been on a losing run, they aren’t playing badly looking at their xG figures. They finished the game against Athletic Bilbao with an xG of 2.12 and were very unlucky to lose 1-0 and the Celta Vigo game was very even too. I would rather be playing good football and losing compared to playing average football and getting lucky like Elche recently. They conceded a bigger xG than they created in two of their last three wins, and if Rayo Vallecano continue to create decent chances they can get the win here. The 2.84 is worth backing in my opinion.
The Ultra Says:
Two points win Rayo Vallecano to beat Elche at 2.84 with BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE.
