Club Friendly Match

by Ben, last updated 2005-07-16 13:12:43

 Benfica v Chelsea Sunday 17th July 2005

 Benfica (3) Draw (3.25) Chelsea (2.1)

The second friendly match that I like the look of this weekend is the one between Chelsea and Benfica. Its rare to see Chelsea being odds against nowadays so seeing them at 2.1 caught my eye.

Jose Mourinho doesn't do friendly matches. He's one of those that wants to win every game. I don't think it would be possible for him to put out a weak team even if he wanted to. Chelsea haven't made any big signings this summer yet so they will be playing with the same players that won the Premiership last season. They will have Crespo back after a loan spell at AC Milan, so that can only boost their already mighty squad. Chelsea beat League 2 team Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday. The score was 5-1.

Benfica are the current Portuguese champions. Mourinho used to manage these back in 2000. He says he has never lost a game at Benfica so he's happy to play there. Benfica do have the home advantage but this is Chelsea who won the English Premiership with a record points total.

I am going to go for Chelsea to win at 2.1 at Bet365. As with the Liverpool/ Leverkusen pick (which lost), only small stakes. This match is going to be shown on Chelsea TV.


 Bayer Leverkusen v Liverpool Saturday 16th July 2005

 Bayer Leverkusen (2.88) Draw (3.25) Liverpool (2.5)

I wasn't aware that this match was going on until this morning. I was thinking that Liverpool's next game would be the away leg of the Champions League stage 1 against TNS. As it happens they are playing Bayer Leverkusen at the Reichshofstadion in Austria. Seems a weird place to play a friendly.

I was unimpressed by the Liverpool/ TNS game on Wednesday. It was so one sided that I stopped watching after the second goal. Liverpool must have eased off after that because they didn't score again until the 89th minute (or maybe the players lack match fitness). Anyway, I'd have expected Liverpool to knock a few more goals past the Welsh Champions.

Leverkusen were beaten twice, 3-1 by Liverpool last year. They will surely want to avenge the defeats.

I was looking at the draw in this match. It's a friendly so neither team is going to go all out for the win. That's generally available at 3.25. I think the Germans have the slight advantage because the venue is closer and the revenge factor.

I couldn't find any Asian Odds for this match but I did find a draw no bet at Paddypower. They are paying 2.2 for Leverkusen, that's much higher that I'd have expected. That's what I am betting on this weekend. Only small stakes though as it's a friendly.

The match is on Channel 5 (UK only) kick off 6.30pm GMT. Its not shown on the TV betting sports betting guide (further up the page).
