I am going straight in with the off victory, at which I have Cardiff beating Reading at the Madejski. The Royals are a poor side — Jose Gomes’ guys have lost their first two from Sheffield Wednesday in the home and at a pretty regular Hull outfit, so this ought to be a game Cardiff will seem to triumph. It has actually been a rather rocky start for your Bluebirds–that lost at Wigan before beating Luton in home in stoppage time–however I still don’t rate this Reading side whatsoever, plus also a Warnock-inspired off win will be on the cards. I’ve an Eredivisie pick second, financing Twente to beat newly-promoted Waalwijk, that finished 8th in the second division last season! The people have dropped their two openers, while Twente conquer Groningen away from home after procuring a good draw with PSV in their league opener. This will surely be a cozy home victory. Hopping over to France, my second pick is St. Etienne to beat Brest in the home. Another newly-promoted facet, Brest did secure a creditable draw at home to Toulouse last weekend, but St. Etienne won 13 of the 19 home games last season, and started their own campaign off with a hard-fought 2-1 away win in Dijon. The hosts will be too strong at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Sunday. Ultimately, we have our La Liga launching weekend! Real Valladolid ended up living relegation by the skin of their teeth last year, but their trip to Betis on Sunday will ultimately prove fruitless. Scoring only 16 times on the road a year ago, Valladolid were not particularly impressive, and it is difficult to see them hastens a Betis side newly armed with Nabil Fekir. Betis have a talented team, although they were inconsistent last campaign, they should return to a winning start now around.
