As it’s often said in the local parlance, thank God it’s Friday!
Traditionally, Friday ushers in a weekend of football frenzy across the world, but this Friday comes with little actions.
The 2020/21 French Ligue 1 enters its second week of action. However, while the Austrian Bundesliga teams are awaiting kickoff of the new Austrian Bundesliga season, they join the lower leagues teams in the Austrian ÖFB Cup first round.
At the Merkur-Arena in Graz, Emeka Eze’s Sturm Graz play host to fourth division SV Innsbruck.
There’s a huge difference in quality between the two teams – while Sturm Graz is a team from first league, the visitors SV Innsbruck is a team from one of the amateur leagues in Austria.
Sturm Graz is in a great training process for the new season and played some friendly matches. Lost in the first match to Ferencvarosi, and won against Bravo, Slovenian team from first league and against Lafnitz team from 2nd Austrian league and drew against Czech Opava.
Elsewhere, after playing out a goalless draw on the opening day of the French Ligue 1, Moses Simon and his Nantes teammates will be hoping Dijon continue their poor start to the season when they travel to Parc Olympique Lyonnais to take on UEFA Champions League semi-finalist, Olympique Lyon.
After matching their finest UEFA Champions League (UCL) campaign of all time, Olympique Lyonnais’ pursuit of an eighth Ligue 1 (L1) title will commence at home, where they lamented a below average 45.45% win rate as a favourite last season (W5, D3, L3). Yet to lose their opening home game of a new L1 season since the turn of the century (W14, D6), a positive beginning is, however, anticipated.
Dijon finished last L1 season as one of six clubs to have conceded the opening goal at least ten times away from home, albeit half were registered after HT. However as a result of keeping their hosts on the day scoreless at HT on six occasions, just four of their ten L1 away defeats last season saw them trail at the break.
Leagues in Belgium, Romania, Poland, Croatia, Bulgaria, Ireland are not left out of action with some interesting fixtures lined up for this Friday.
