- Olympiakos vs. Ludogorets (Champions League)
Tennis – Washington R1: Denis Kudla vs. Feliciano Lopez
Feliciano Lopez is at 39 years old in the last phase of an overall impressive career. The athlete from Spain is still currently in the top 100 but this good ranking is mainly due to his performances in 2019 that are still reflecting because of the system implemented since the Covid-19 pandemic. This year, he has a poor record with only 11 wins out of 27 matches played. The fast conditions of Washington should suit his game, but it is difficult to be optimistic for him at the moment.
Denis Kudla from USA is currently ranked #103 in the world. He had a poor run this season on clay but gained some confidence back during the grass season, which is his best surface (12 wins – 4 losses). Kudla is also comfortable on hard court, especially when playing in his home country. He reached the third round at the US Open in 2019.
Both players met once in the past, at the Australian Open in 2015. The match was narrowly won by Lopez 10-8 in the fifth set. This season, Kudla has shown the better form and we are confident he should be up to the task tomorrow. His game should match up well with Lopez, the American player is low on his legs and plays well from the baseline, he can return and counter attack very effectively.
Prediction: we back Kudla to win (Match odds).
Football – Champions League qualifying: Olympiakos vs. Ludogorets
In the semifinals of the Champions League qualifiers, Olympiakos welcomes Ludogorets for the first leg of the encounter. The Greek side won the last 2 matches in the competition against Neftci Baku, 1-0 both times. Before that, Olympiakos won 2 friendly matches against Aris (3-0) and Craiova (2-0).
Ludogorets had to go through Mura to reach this stage of the competition, with a draw in the first match (0-0) and a win in the second encounter at home (3-0). Ludogorets won the last 2 matches played in the Bulgarian league over CSKA 1948 Sofia and Plovdiv.
We see that both teams have shown a good form lately, and considering Olympiakos is a large favorite, we fancy a bet in the Asian Handicap market in favor of the Bulgarian side.
Prediction: Both teams met once (in 2017), the match ended in a draw. We predict Ludogorets +1 goal (Asian Handicap).
