This Friday sees the Russian Premier League and the second tier in Germany, Bundesliga 2, get underway, while there's also a game from Austria's top flight included in our three-match accumulator.

With several of Europe's lesser-heralded leagues resuming domestic competition this weekend, we have delved into the continental action to pick out three selections that, at the time of writing, could see a return of £100.59 from a £10 stake.

Rostov vs Dynamo Moscow Betting Tips

(Fri, 18:00)

Under 2.5 goals - BET NOW

 

Two teams who finished mid-table in Russia begin their new campaigns with a clash that doesn't exactly scream goals.

These two often struggled in the final third last term, with Rostov, who finished ninth, hitting 37 from 30 games in total, while Dynamo managed a tad better, firing 44, to help them up to seventh in the final standings.

Neither have been particularly prolific in their warm-up games, with Dynamo failing to score in four of their seven friendlies, while Rostov lost 1-0 to Honved last time out and across four other games they only managed to score more than one goal once.

Sturm Graz vs RB Salzburg Betting Tips

(Friday, 19:30)

RB Salzburg to win and BTTS - BET NOW

 

In contrast, this Austrian Premier League opener may be a bit more exciting. Graz, who finished fourth last term, host the champions and both have had their shooting boots on in the build-up.

The home side won 9-0 at minnows Stadl-Paura in the Austrian Cup last weekend and will want to start the new campaign off with more goals, even if it will be tough against a Salzburg outfit who won the league by seven points in 2020-21.

Salzburg hit seven in three pre-season friendlies before winning 4-1 in the cup themselves last week against Hertha. They have a young, dynamic squad and possess dangerous frontmen Benjamin Sesko, Sekou Koita and Karim-David Adeyemi in their ranks.

Schalke vs Hamburg Betting Tips

(Friday, 19:30)

Schalke to win - BET NOW

 

After being relegated from the top flight, Schalke host a Hamburg side who are also desperate to prove they should be back amongst the elite in Germany next season.

This could be a tight, tense start to the Bundesliga 2, which this season also boasts familiar teams like Werder Bremen, Dynamo Dresden and Hannover in the mix.

Schalke are favourites at home and should get off to a winning start as they look to mount a swift promotion bid, but Hamburg, who finished fourth last term, will be no pushovers.

Schalke's warm-up games have included ridiculous 14-0 and 8-0 wins, plus a thrilling 3-2 victory over Dutch side Vitesse. Hamburg, in contrast, have picked up three 1-0 wins in summer friendlies and are likely to approach this clash with a similar conservative mindset.
