European League soccer seasons start in late August.

Club Friendly Matches to Bet On this Week  – European Teams

Liverpool Vs Hertha Berlin

  • When: Thursday, July 29

Hertha hasn’t played since May 22 when they fell in their final Bundesliga match versus TSG Hoffenheim. Don’t expect Hertha to be at full strength in this. Even at full strength they’d have trouble getting past the Reds. In their first club friendly match, Liverpool beat Mainz 1-0. A similar outcome could happen on Thursday. 

Soccer Pick: Liverpool 

Bologna Vs Borussia Dortmund

  • When: Friday, July 30

The Bundesliga starts before other European soccer leagues, which is why this will be Dortmund’s third club friendly match. Dortmund beat FC Geiben in their first club friendly. Atletico Madrid bested Borussia 2-0 in Dortmund’s second. Bologna hasn’t played since a 1-4 loss to Juvy on May 23. Although Dortmund should win this, Borussia may not field their best possible squad. Bologna is worth a look. 

Soccer Pick: Bologna 

Ajax Amsterdam Vs RB Leipzig

  • When: Saturday, July 31

Leipzig hasn’t scored a victory since a 2-1 win against Werder Bremen on April 30. Ajax Amsterdam has played in 5 club friendlies since July 3, winning 3 and drawing twice. On July 24, Ajax drew 2-2 in a match against Bayern Munich. This sets up for an Ajax victory. 

Soccer Pick: Ajax 

Napoli Vs Bayern Munich

  • When: Saturday, July 31

Bayern lost their first club friendly 3-2 against Cologne. Munich bounced back on July 24 with a 2-2 draw against Ajax. Napoli hasn’t played since May 23. Eventually, Bayern must get on track. They’ve got a new manager and head coach this season. Bayern gets the nod. 

Soccer Pick: Bayern Munich 

Barcelona Vs VfB Stuttgart

  • When: Saturday, July 31

So far, so good for Barca. Barcelona is 2-0 in their club friendly matches. On July 21, they beat Gimnastic de Tarragona 4-0. Then on July 24, they beat Girona 3-1. This is Stuttgart’s first match since May 22, which means Barca has the edge.  

Soccer Pick: Barcelona 

Atletico Madrid Vs VfL Wolfsburg

  • When: Saturday, July 31

Wolfsburg didn’t show up against Lyon in their first club match, falling 1-4. Atletico Madrid won’t be at full strength, though. Wolfsburg could bounce back with a 1-0 victory here. If you don’t like Wolfsburg, consider the draw. Atletico finished 1-1 versus Numancia in their last club friendly. 

Soccer Pick: Wolfsburg 

AC Milan Vs Nice

  • When: Saturday, July 31

In a couple of club friendly matches, AC Milan has shown they mean business this season. Milan has outscored their last two opponents a combined 11-0. On July 11, they beat Pro Sesto 6-0. In their match on July 24, AC beat Modena 5-0. Expect Milan to impress again. 

Soccer Pick: AC Milan 

Villareal Vs Lyon

  • When: Saturday, July 31

Villareal and Lyon drew 2-2 on July 22. A similar finish could happen on Saturday. Neither team will go all out in a club friendly. Also, these two are close to the same talent level. The draw looks possible. 

Soccer Pick: Draw 

Chelsea Vs Arsenal 

  • When: Sunday, August 1

This is the Blues first match since beating Man City at the 2021 UEFA Champions League Final. Chelsea could come out swinging. But Thomas Tuchel won’t push his fellas in their first club friendly match of the season. Instead, he’ll play a strategy that gives plenty of playing time to his bench. The Gunners could end up ahead at the 90th minute.  

Soccer Pick: Arsenal
