Wehen v Osnabruck - 2. Bundesliga - 17:30

6/4 for Osnabruck to beat Wehen away from home in the German second division looks like great value.

Wehen aren’t just bad, they’re atrocious – particularly on home soil. One point from their opening seven matches makes from grim enough reading, but with four losses at home—the last three by scorelines of 0-3, 0-5 and 2-5—is pathetic.

Osnabruck aren’t going to pull up any trees this season, but they’ve looked steady enough, and they’ve already beaten Sandhausen on the road this campaign, so they’ve shown winning away games isn’t beyond them.

This is a solid value pick.

Osnabruck - 1pt @ 6/4

Stoke v Nottingham Forest - Championship - 20:00

Next, I have Nottingham Forest to beat Stoke away from home.

Under Nathan Jones, The Potters look gone. Their cup exit to Crawley on Tuesday was the latest mishap this season, and though Forest were hammered at The Emirates, they look far more organised, and will fancy their chances on Friday.

Currently sitting second-bottom of the Championship, it’s hard to see how Jones turns this ship around; conceding nine goals in four home games isn’t sustainable.

Forest are unbeaten since the opening day in the league, and back-to-back away victories against Fulham and Swansea—as well as a good draw at Elland Road back in early August—is why 11/5 looks very enticing indeed against a hapless Stoke side whose confidence is at rock bottom.
