After a poor start of the new season, Torino caught up with the winning momentum, as they are currently enjoying two matches positive run in Serie A, defeating Sassuolo last time on the road with a minimal result.
They created several decent opportunities during the first part, but only in the second finally managed to pierce through the opponent’s defense, scoring the only one in this clash over Pjaca late in the 83rd, and deservedly took all three points in this encounter.
Forward Zaza is close to returning to competitive matches. The hosts keep missing forwards Belotti (2/1), Verdi (2/1), Edera (no games yet), and defender Izzo (2/0).
Lazio is coming to this clash after a minor setback in their last home fixture against underdogs from Cagliari when they took only a point in a 2:2 draw.
Sevilla is coming to this clash after a 0:0 stalemate last time out on the road to Real Sociedad, overly looking, being involved in an evenly balanced encounter.
They were lucky not to concede from the penalty in the 27th, and even though both sides created several decent opportunities in the continuation, neither of them had that final touch at the finishing to spice this one a bit.
Sevilla is positioned at the 6th spot in Laliga rankings, still unbeaten in all of their previous four fixtures.
Forward Suso (2/0) is doubtful for the hosts and should be the only injury worry.
Having lost all of their previous five fixtures in LaLiga, Getafe certainly has some serious doubts about their overall appearances so far.
They failed to be more creative in their last clash away against Rayo Vallecano, as they suffered another defeat with a convincing 3:0 result.
They conceded from the penalty early in the 9th minute and throughout the match looked idealess on how to be more concrete. The guests conceded two more in the 78th and the 81st, missing their chance for at least a comforting one from another penalty just five minutes later.
Getafe is currently at the 19th spot in the rankings, yet to take their first points in the new season of LaLiga.
AIK ended their winning momentum in their last clash on the road against Mjallby when they took only a point in a goalless encounter.
There is not much to say about this clash as both sides created a minimal number of opportunities and were simply too passive during the whole ninety minutes to make this one a bit more interesting, even though the hosts had a slight advantage in terms of ball possession.
AIK is currently at the 2nd spot in the general rankings, being only one point in deficit compared to the leaders from Djurgarden.
Lazio failed to meet the expectations on the road to Istanbul last Thursday when they suffered a 1:0 loss to Galatasaray, probably a misfortunate, as they scored an own goal in the 67th, and overly looking, were a more dangerous squad, especially during the second part.
They also suffered a 2:0 away defeat against Milan a couple of days earlier, and are definitely in need of a victory to get back on the right path as soon as possible.
Lazio should have no fresh injury worries for this one.
Willem II took only a point in a goalless match last time out on the road against Nijmegen, and generally speaking, they can be satisfied with the result.
They were left with a player less on the field since the 15th minute and were in a completely defensive stand for the rest of the clash, overly looking, being quite lucky not to concede at least one goal.
Willem II holds the 5th spot in the standings, having five points less than leaders from PSV.
The home side keeps missing goalkeeper Wellenreuther (2/0), left-back Nelom (no performance so far), midfielder Spiringhs (3/1) and offensive Meerveld (2/0). Goalkeeper Brondeel (1/0) is suspended.
SV Horn goes into this match after a 1:1 draw against FC Juniors and so far Horn is progressing very well.
Matches with SV Horn have usually been interesting affairs to watch recently with a lot of goals action. Over their past 6 games alone, the sum total of 20 goals has been recorded for both sides combined with 10 of them coming from SV Horn.
Looking at the pre-match facts about SV Horn they show that; have not been beaten in their last 6 home league matches and have not lost to Kapfenberg in games played at home for the previous 4 matches in the league.
The Foxes missed their Champions League ticket last season maybe a bit unfortunate in my opinion, but will definitely do their best to be as competitive as possible in the upcoming Europa League campaign.
They share the group with Napoli, Legia, and Spartak from Moscow, overly looking, being one of the best squads, and are certainly in a position to compete for promotional first two places.
The Foxes continue to miss defenders Fofana and Justin, as well as midfielder Mendy, all three without playing in the new season.
Club Brugge is doing quite well in this season in Jupiler League, with that exception away to Gent, overly looking, being potent in almost every match played.
They routinely outplayed underdogs from Oostende last time out at home with a 3:0 result, being in complete control from the begging of the clash. The hosts scored two over Lang and one over Vanaken, not putting their victory in question at any moment, but it has to be said that they had a player more on the field since the 45th minute.
They are in a very tough group with PSG, Leipzig, and Manchester City, but will definitely do their best to be as competitive as possible in the Champions League campaign.
Offensive players Providence and Izquierdo remain sidelined coming off from injury problems. Defender Balanta (6/1) shouldn’t be involved either.
Bournemouth met the expectations in their last home match against underdogs from Barnsley when they outplayed them in every aspect and recorded a convincing 3:0 victory.
They took an early lead in the 8th minute while being a dominant side during the whole clash, scoring two more in the 46th and the 82nd wasn’t much of a challenge for them, leaving the guests with a minimal number of opportunities to be dangerous in this one.
Bournemouth is currently at the 5th spot in the general rankings, being only two points in deficit compared to the leaders from WBA.
They continue missing midfielders Cook and Stanislas (2/0) due to injuries.
